According to our estimates, there are approximately 19 storage businesses operating facilities in Kingsport. Other cities in Tennessee are home to an average 13 facilities, 6 less than Kingsport, meaning Kingsport's storage coverage is slightly-higher than average. Out of all 31 cities in Tennessee listed on the SelfStorage.com network, Kingsport ranks as the 9th-highest in terms of number of storage businesses, accounting for 4.7% of facilities. And Kingsport doesn't just have a lot of storage facilities for its state, either: it also surpasses the national average of 9 facilities per city by 10.
Since, however, there are huge disparities in population between Kingsport and other cities in Tennessee, comparing the number of storage businesses in each tells us very little. So how does Kingsport, with its population of 44,758, compare to cities with similar populations? Other cities in the 25,000 to 50,000 population bracket have an average 7 storage facilities listed on our network, 12 fewer than Kingsport. By that number, we can confidently say that Kingsport, TN has plenty of extra storage space. Indeed, that Kingsport has a good number of storage facilities for its population is verified once more when we look at its per person facility count. On a per capita basis versus other cities nationwide, Kingsport ranks in the 72nd percentile, meaning that it offers its residents a somewhat-large amount of storage space. Just as Kingsport appears to have a large amount of storage space per person compared to cities across the nation, the same goes when we restrict the comparison to Tennessee, where Kingsport lands in the 60th percentile for facilities per capita among cities in the state.
Finally, it bears mentioning that Kingsport has been experiencing a downward trend in population growth in recent years, losing 1.3% of its population from 2000 to 2010, according to the US Census. Meanwhile, the rest of Tennessee as a whole saw a population increase of 11.5% over that same period. Combine Kingsport's lower population growth than the rest of Tennessee with its above-average number of facilities per capita for the state, and you get a recipe for relatively low storage demand, which should make the job of finding a unit easier.

Some storage seekers are able to find much cheaper rates by looking in nearby communities in addition to their own. That's why those looking for the best deal on a storage unit should expand the area of their search as far and wide as possible.

We've had our analysts go over the data on self-storage (sometimes known as public self storage or mini storage) in Kingsport to see how it compares with other cities in its state.
