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 Carrollton to other cities in Texas. Are the 23 storage facilities providing the 129,209 people living in Carrollton with enough storage space? It turns out that the average city in the 100,000 to 250,000 population bracket has 18 self-storage facilities listed on our network. That's 5 fewer facilities than are listed in Carrollton, leading us to conclude that Carrollton is slightly above-average among cities of similar size. On the other hand, the idea that the Carrollton experiences a surplus of storage space for its size is refuted by its per person count of storage facilities. Per person, Carrollton ranks in the 45th percentile for self-storage facilities among cities across the nation. That means that 23 storage businesses serving a city of 129,209 people isn't a very high number, and indicates that finding the necessary storage space in Carrollton could be more difficult than in other cities.

But remember that, despite the fact that population growth probably isn't generating a great amount of demand for storage in Carrollton, the city already has relatively few facilities for the size of its current population.
One of the most prominent factors involved with finding a cheap storage unit is the time of year you go searching for that unit, as storage prices change due to seasonal demand.

College towns often see more radical seasonal swings, as their student populations drive demand on smaller units in particular up during the summer.
Carrollton isn't nearly as affected by seasonal change as most other cities are, the average price of storage remaining relatively stable throughout the year. Even so, it's often a good idea to book at the lowest price and then lock in that rate with the facility.
