La Porte Self Storage Units and Mini Storage in La Porte, Texas

La Porte, TX Self Storage: FAQ

What's a typical rental rate for La Porte storage?

You'll have a tough time telling a good deal on storage in La Porte from a great one if you don't know what storage in La Porte normally costs. Storage prices being as highly-dependent on location as they are, there's little use in comparing the facilities in La Porte with those in other cities you might have rented a storage unit in in the past. There's no need to fret, however, as our analysts have gone through the data and have all the statistics on storage in La Porte that you might need.

On average, a storage unit in La Porte goes for $116 a month. That's $1392 a year, for those of you whose storage needs are of a lengthier nature. Note, however, that that figure is the average for all sizes taken together, and so shouldn't be used as the basis for your storage search. You can, after all, end up paying twice as much for the larger unit sizes than the smaller sizes. There are six standard sizes of storage units in La Porte, including: 5x5, 5x10, 10x10, 10x15, 10x20, and 10x30. In La Porte, the average price for each standard size is:

Storage Unit SizeAverage Price in La Porte, TX
5x5$40.28
5x10$60.38
10x10$96.3
10x15$111
10x20$132.8
10x30$201.67

Are there a large number of storage facilties in La Porte, TX? Should I have an easy time finding the unit I need?

Finding storage is a game of numbers, and one important number is that of the amount of storage facilities in your city. More facilities bring more options, so the odds of finding the perfect unit increase as the number of facilities in your area does. In terms of the number of storage businesses in La Porte, are there plenty of options available, or few?

In total, 7 La Porte storage businesses have listed themselves on our self-storage facility network. On the state level, the average city in Texas is home to approximately 16 self-storage businesses, meaning that La Porte, with 9 less than that, offers few facilties relative to the rest of its state. Compared to the rest of the cities in Texas, La Porte ranks quite low in terms of number of facilities (90th out of all 179 cities), with a meager 0.25% share of the total. La Porte is below the national average as well, with 2 fewer storage facilities than the national average of 9 per city.

Of course, simply comparing cities irrespective of their various populations tells us very little about these cities, even when we're comparing La Porte to other cities in Texas. 34,191 people make La Porte their home. Is 7 a relatively high or low number of storage facilities for such a population? After comparing La Porte to a group of cities of similar size, we found La Porte to be firmly average. Cities with populations of 25,000 to 50,000 averaged 7 facilities each, the very same number in La Porte. But measuring La Porte against its 25,000 to 50,000 population bracket might not be the best way of establishing how well covered the city is in terms of storage space. For that, we should look at facilities per capita as well. With 7 facilities for its 34,191 residents, La Porte ranks in the 50th percentile for self-storage facilities per person in cities nationwide. In other words, there's a pretty good amount of storage for each person in La Porte. But having a larger amount of storage space per capita on the national scale is not the same on the state level, and in Texas La Porte does not get as stellar results, ranking in only at the 47th percentile for self-storage businesses per capita.

It also bears mentioning that La Porte saw some population growth in the past decade, growing by 6.6% from 2000 to 2010. Though that's not an insignificant number, it is in fact 14% less growth than the 20.6% the state of Texas experienced over the same period. 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, La Porte already has relatively fewer storage facilities for its size than many of those faster-growing cities.

How much should I expect my storage rental rates to be in La Porte?

As storage prices are closely tied to local real estate prices, it makes sense that rental rates can often differ substantially even in neighboring cities. A great way of scoring a dirt-cheap storage unit is expanding the area in which you're searching. The extra drive to the facility could very well be worth the monthly savings. But is it worth expanding your search, or is self-storage (commonly called mini storage or public storage) cheaper in La Porte than its surroundings? We asked the analysts at SelfStorage.com to find out.

An average price of $116 a month for a storage unit makes La Porte the 18th most expensive city in Texas for self-storage, while Texas itself is the 22nd most expensive state. When searching for storage in La Porte, expect to pay $42.97 more than Texas's average price of $73.03.

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. That's why we've developed a 'relative price' scale that takes state median income into account. A storage unit in La Porte will on average cost 2.85% of a median earner's monthly income, given that the yearly median income in Texas is $48,902.00. When compared to storage price as a percent of income in other cities in Texas, La Porte ranks in the 90th percentile, meaning that storage here is quite expensive.

La Porte storage prices are very expensive on the national scale as well. When compared with national cities they rank in the 87th percentile. Nationwide, storage costs an average $72.15 a month. Expect to pay about $43.85 more than that for self storage in La Porte.

When are La Porte, TX storage prices cheapest? Should I book in January or February?

Self storage prices are highly seasonal, with rental prices often fluctuating widely throughout the year. The period between April and September is typically considered the high season for storage, while prices are lower the rest of the year, notably through October and March. The day following Memorial Day is typically the busiest of the high season, and is known in the industry as 'National Moving Day' and 'Crazy Tuesday for the number of people who decided to move and rent storage on that day. In addition to families moving between homes, college students renting storage for the summer also contribute to demand during the high season, particularly in college towns.

La Porte is not as affected by seasonality as other cities, with storage prices experiencing smaller price fluctuations than elsewhere. Even though you shouldn't have to worry as much about your rates changing later in the year, it's always best to lock in your rate with the facility if possible. With its average price of $23, February is the cheapest month to book storage in La Porte. With an average price of $116, January is the most expensive month to rent storage in La Porte.
