Some storage seekers are able to find much cheaper rates by looking in nearby communities in addition to their own. A great way of scoring a dirt-cheap storage unit is expanding the area in which you're searching. The sum you'll save each month could totally be worth the extra drive, especially if you'll only need to visit your unit on the rare occasion. But is it worth expanding your search, or is self-storage (commonly called mini storage or public storage) cheaper in Carlisle than its surroundings? We asked the analysts at SelfStorage.com to find out.

If you do your comparison shopping for storage units a few months from now, you might be surprised to see that prices have changed. That's because the self storage market is highly seasonal. Late spring to late summer is typically considered the high season, while fall, winter, and early spring are when prices are usually at their lowest. The day after Memorial Day (which those in the moving and storage industries often refer to as 'Crazy Tuesday') is typically seen as the start of the high season and is frequently the most expensive day to rent storage during that season. Smaller unit sizes are often more strongly affected by seasonality, as college students make up a decent portion of those moving in the summer and tend to book 5x5 and 5x10 units.
Our data shows that the average price of a storage unit does not change throughout the year in Carlisle to the same degree as it does in most cities, so seasonality should be less of a hassle for those looking for storage in Carlisle. Despite the fact that seasonal price changes are less of a risk in Carlisle, they're not impossible, so a good idea might be to play it safe and lock in your rate for the entirety of your stay, if possible.
