Finding and locking in a good monthly rate on your self storage unit has a lot to do with the time of year you book it, as prices vacillate from season to season. The low season generally lasts from October through March, with prices kicking up in April and hitting their high from May to September. The single busiest day for self-storage businesses is typically the notorious 'National Moving Day' (which facility operators have dubbed 'Crazy Tuesday' for the chaotic scene at many facilities) the day after Memorial Day. Seasonal prices are often even more extreme in college towns, where students book a large number of self storage units during their summer vacation.
There's a greater difference in price between high and low seasons in Murfreesboro than there is elsewhere, which means you should be more conscious of the timing of your storage search here. Keep seasonal changes at bay by signing your storage lease during the low season and then locking in that rate for your entire stay. Those looking for self storage in Murfreesboro will find the lowest prices in March, with its average price of $39.83. January, however, is the most expensive month, averaging $159.5.

Finding storage is a game of numbers, and one important number is that of the amount of storage facilities in your city.

Murfreesboro isn't only a large storage market in terms of its state, either, as its 19 facilities give it 10 more than the national average of 9 facilities per city.
On the other hand, comparing the total number of storage facilities in one city to another irrespective of the number of people that live in each city makes little sense, even when we're comparing Murfreesboro to other cities in Tennessee. The population of Murfreesboro, TN is 105,209. With 19 self-storage facilities, does Murfreesboro offer relatively good or bad storage coverage? Cities with populations of 100,000 to 250,000 average 18 storage facilities, 1 fewer than Murfreesboro's 19, which leads us to conclude that Murfreesboro has a decent amount of storage space for a city its size. But is there indeed a relative surplus of storage space in Murfreesboro for the size of its population? Per capita data seems to have disproven this. In comparison with cities across the country, Murfreesboro's 19 self-storage facilities for its 105,209 residents ranks it in the 46th percentile for facilities per person, meaning that there's relatively-little extra storage space for its residents. Is Murfreesboro still relatively low on storage space compared to other cities in Tennessee? Indeed, it seems as if it is, as Murfreesboro only ranks in the 33rd percentile for per capita storage space among cities in Tennessee.

The city saw 48.4% more people move there from 2000-2010, a whole 36.9% more growth than the 11.5% Tennessee in total saw. Demand for self-storage in Murfreesboro could be pushed even higher due to the fact that, in addition to its growth spurt, it has a low level of facilities per capita.
Some of the most successful storage finds occur when the storage seeker includes nearby towns, suburbs, and neighborhoods in their search. By expanding your search into areas you might not have thought to look, you might be able to happen upon some excellent deals.
