Changing seasonal demand often causes storage prices to swing between highs and lows during different parts of the year. The high season lasts from late spring to late summer, the most popular period for those moving into a new home. 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. 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.
Seasonality is slightly more pronounced in Denton than it is in other cities on the SelfStorage.com network, meaning some price shifts throughout the year should be expected One way of insulating yourself against seasonal rate changes is by signing a contract with the facility that specifies a length of stay and a single, unchanging rate, if possible.

When compared to other cities in the state, Denton offers a slightly-higher number of facilities, 9 more than the state average of 16 per city. Denton also boasts the 22nd highest count of storage facilities out of all 179 cities in Texas, making up 0.87% of the state's facility count. But what about on a national scale?

'But what about self storage facilities per capita?', you might be thinking. Comparing Denton to other cities in Texas irrespective of population does, indeed, make little sense. Approximately 122,830 people live in Denton, TX. Is that a large population for a city with 25 self-storage facilities, or a small one? For its population, Denton has a few more facilities than average. The average for cities with a population of 100,000 to 250,000 is 18 facilities, which of course is 7 less than the 25 in Denton.

In order to address these concerns we've looked at Denton's facilities per person, which seems to have verified our former conclusions. On a per capita basis, Denton ranks in the 50th percentile nationwide, so there's a fairly-high amount of storage space for the 122,830 people living in Denton. But although Denton may have more storage space per person than cities nationwide, it's something of an underachiever compared with other cities in Texas, where it only ranks in the 46th percentile.
Lastly, US Census data shows that Denton is growing fast, its population jumping by 46.8% from 2000 to 2010, a 26.2% higher increase than the 20.6% growth that Texas saw as a whole. But even if Denton's growth in population has caused a surge in demand, keep in mind that the city still, even after all that growth, has a good number of facilities per capita, which may balance out the population surge.
