Garland Self Storage Units and Mini Storage in Garland, Texas

Garland, TX Self Storage: FAQ

Once sitting on the periphery of ever-expanding the DFW metroplex, Garland--which is now surrounded by Richardson, Rockwall, Sachse, Mesquite and Rowlett--feels almost central these days. There may be little besides high school football rivalries distinguishing Garland from the other metroplex cities it has blended in to, but there is one fun pop culture reference to the city: Mike Judge, creator of the animated television program King of the Hill, grew up in Garland and used it as inspiration for Hank Hill's similar-sounding home town of 'Arlen.' None of that will be a suprise to you if you're a resident of Garland, but do you know how many storage facilities are in Garland, or which ZIP codes offer the lowest prices?

Are there plenty of storage facilities in Garland, or might I need to expand my search into surrounding towns and suburbs?

When it comes to finding self-storage, the more really is the merrier: more storage businesses in your area means more unit options available, and more options mean a greater chance you'll be able to choose a unit that satisfies your storage needs. How many facilties are operating in Garland?

SelfStorage.com has 26 storage facilties in Garland, TX listed on its network. When compared to other cities in the state, Garland offers a slightly-higher number of facilities, 10 more than the state average of 16 per city. It should come as no surprise then that Garland has the 21st-highest count of facilities out of all 179 cities on our network in Texas, acting as home to 0.91% of facilities in Texas. Even by national standards, Garland boasts a large number of facilities, 17 more than the national average of 9 facilities in each city.

Since, however, there are huge disparities in population between Garland and other cities in Texas, comparing the number of storage businesses in each tells us very little. Are the 26 storage facilities providing the 222,013 people living in Garland 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 8 fewer facilities than are listed in Garland, leading us to conclude that Garland is slightly above-average among cities of similar size. But if we look at the number of facilities per person in Garland, our story begins to change: indeed, these figures seem to have disputed our claim that Garland has a large number of self-storage facilities per person. Per capita, Garland places in the 30th percentile for storage facilities among cities across the United States. In other words, there are relatively few storage businesses serving the local Garland market for its size, so extra storage space might be harder to find here. Even if we restrict our scope of comparison to the state level, Garland doesn't seem to offer its population as much storage space as other cities do, attaining a low rank in the 18th percentile for facilities per capita among cities in Texas.

It also bears mentioning that Garland saw some population growth in the past decade, growing by 2.7% from 2000 to 2010. Though that's not an insignificant number, it is in fact 17.9% less growth than the 20.6% the state of Texas experienced over the same period. There might then indeed be less demand for storage in Garland created by people moving into town, but at the same time there's already less storage per person than in other cities in Texas, so the curent population faces an already-low supply.

Are areas of Garland more cheap for self storage than others?

As they are closely linked to real estate prices, self storage unit prices can be very different in one part of Garland to another. Searching for storage in the 75042 ZIP code should yield the cheapest rental rates, as units there average $86.58 a month, lower than anywhere else in Garland. The 75044 ZIP code, on the other hand, is the priciest neighborhood in Garland, with an average price of $106.57 for a unit.

Is self storage in Garland expensive?

It's not uncommon for another community a few miles down the road to offer substanial savings on storage compared to the rates in your community. Storage facilities just on the periphery of your current search might have some great rental rates, and you'll only find them if you search a little more broadly. This might make it more difficult to access your unit, but the extra money in your pocket every month may just be worth it. Knowing whether or not you should look in nearby cities depends on whether or not self-storage (sometimes called mini storage or public self storage) in those cities is less expensive than in Garland. We've gone ahead and figured that out for you.

An average price of $60.64 a month for a storage unit makes Garland the 99th most expensive city in Texas for self-storage, while Texas itself is the 22nd most expensive state. In more exact terms, storage in Garland costs an average of $12.39 less than the average storage unit in Texas, which goes for 73.03.

These average prices don't necessarily tell you how affordable storage in one city is compared to another, as the cost of living changes from place to place. In order to establish some kind of index of affordability for Garland storage, we've developed a 'relative price' scale which takes the cost of living in terms of state median income into account. A storage unit in Garland will on average cost 1.49% of a median earner's monthly income, given that the yearly median income in Texas is $48,902.00. Compared to the price-as-percent-of-income in other Texas cities, Garland ranks at the 44th percentile, making storage here relatively affordable.

When placed on a national scale and compared to cities across the country, storage prices in Garland are still relatively cheap, ranking at the 43rd percentile in terms of relative expense. The national average monthly price of a storage unit is $72.15. Depending on the size of unit you rent and the time of year, you should expect to pay approximately $11.51 less than that for self storage in Garland.

How much should I expect storage facilities in Garland to charge per month for my unit?

Before you go out looking for a cheap storage unit in Garland, it's important that you know how much a unit in Garland ususally costs. You can't even use past experiences booking storage elsewhere, as average prices will be totally different in other cities, even other cities in TX.

There can be, and often are, substanial price differences between different unit sizes. The standard sizes of storage available in Garland include 5x5, 5x10, 10x10, 10x15, 10x20, and 10x30. Here are the average rental rates for each standard size in Garland:

Self storage prices in Garland, TX seem to spike sharply during the month of June. If that's the most expensive month, which one is cheapest?

As self storage is a seasonal industry, the rates you're seeing now may be very different from those on the same unit at the same facility a few months down the road. The high season typically begins in April or May and lasts till August or September, with prices dropping back down to their lowest in the late fall and winter. The single busiest day of the high season is typically National Moving Day, also called 'Crazy Tuesday' by storage facility operators for the amount of activity they see that day, which is 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.

Those looking for storage in Garland shouldn't have to worry as much about seasonal prices swings, as according to our data these swings are much less extreme here than elsewhere. Sudden seasonal price swings could of course still happen, and one of the best ways to prevent your rates from exploding is by locking them in for the entirety of your stay when you first sign the contract with the facility. You're most likely to get a good deal on a storage unit in Garland during the month of April, when the average price is at its lowest, $44.11 a month. You're least likely to get a good deal in June, when the average price is a high $78.88.


Trying to locate a seriously cheap self storage unit in Garland, TX? Then start your search during April within the 75042 ZIP code. The absolute worst time to look for storage is June, when units cost the most, and beware that the 75044 area is the most expensive part of town for storage.
