It's often the case that storage prices can swing to the opposite end of the spectrum within a few blocks in the same city, just as real estate values are liable to do. By widening the breadth of your search, you'll open yourself up to even more facilities and a greater range of possibilities. Depending on how often you'll need to access your unit, this could be the way to go. If the average price of self storage (which includes facilities called mini storage or public self storage) is higher in Beaumont, then you'll definitely want to expand your search. So is it?

An average price alone, however, doesn't tell you if storage is or isn't more affordable in one city versus another, as the cost of living will also be different. In order to establish some kind of index of affordability for Beaumont storage, we've developed a 'relative price' scale which takes the cost of living in terms of state median income into account. In Texas, the median income is $48,902.00 a year, which would make the average $86.33 unit in Beaumont cost 2.12% of a median earner's monthly income. When we compare this storage price as a percent of income to other cities in Texas, we find that it ranks in the 73rd percentile, making it a fairly expensive place to rent storage.

The more facilities there are in the area you're searching, the more options you'll have. So are there a large or small number of storage businesses operating in Beaumont?

Since, however, there are huge disparities in population between Beaumont and other cities in Texas, comparing the number of storage businesses in each tells us very little. How, then, does Beaumont with its 110,110 people compare to cities of a like size? Cities with populations of 100,000 to 250,000 average 18 storage facilities, 4 fewer than Beaumont's 22, which leads us to conclude that Beaumont has a decent amount of storage space for a city its size. But is there indeed a relative surplus of storage space in Beaumont for the size of its population? Per capita data seems to have disproven this. Per person, Beaumont ranks in the 49th percentile for self-storage facilities among cities across the nation. That means that 22 storage businesses serving a city of 110,110 people isn't a very high number, and indicates that finding the necessary storage space in Beaumont could be more difficult than in other cities. How does Beaumont compare to other cities in Texas? Even when we restict the scope to other cities in its state, Beaumont still only ranks at the 45th percentile for per capita storage facilities.

Over that same period, however, Texas took on 20.6% more people. Keep in mind, though, that while there's probably not as much demand generated by people moving into town as there is in other Texas cities, Beaumont already has relatively fewer storage facilities for its size than many of those faster-growing cities.
