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. 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. Sure, it might be more of a pain to drive to the facility, but hundreds of dollars in potential savings might alleviate that. But on the other hand, if we can show that self-storage (commonly known as mini storage or public self storage) is cheaper in Orange than its surroundings, there's no reason to waste time looking elsewhere.

But average prices don't necessarily tell you how affordable storage is in a given city, as money goes further in some states than it does in others.

There are 19 total storage facilities in Orange, TX on the SelfStorage.com network. Orange's 19 facilities make it one of the larger cities for storage in Texas: the state average is 16 facilities per city, 3 less than what's available in Orange. It should come as no surprise then that Orange has the 38th-highest count of facilities out of all 179 cities on our network in Texas, acting as home to 0.67% of facilities in Texas. Orange also has a large number of facilities for a city on the national scale, with 10 more facilities than the national average of 9.
But of course, there are vast differences in population between Orange and other cities in Texas, and even more so nationwide, so not controlling for population makes little sense. So how does Orange, with its population of 19,616, compare to cities with similar populations? Considering that cities with populations of 10,000 to 25,000 average 6 storage facilities, we feel fully confident in saying that Orange--which offers 13 more facilities--has plenty of extra storage space for its size. Indeed, that Orange has a good number of storage facilities for its population is verified once more when we look at its per person facility count. On a per capita basis, Orange ranks in the 89th percentile for storage facilities compared with other cities nationwide, meaning there is a very high amount of storage space per person. And just as Orange ranks high for storage space per capita on a national scale, it also has a large number of storage businesses for a city in Texas, placing at the 84th percentile.
We feel it worth mentioning that Orange saw a net loss in population from the 2000 census to the 2010 census, where its number of inhabitants fell by 5.1%. Over that same period, however, Texas took on 20.6% more people. Combine Orange's lower population growth than the rest of Texas with its above-average number of facilities per capita for the state, and you get a recipe for relatively low storage demand, which should make the job of finding a unit easier.
