Prices on self storage units can change dramatically from month to month over the course of the year, spiking higher or dipping lower depending on the season. This seasonality is primarily driven by moving season, which lasts from May to September and generally causes storage prices to spike. Known to some in the industry as 'Crazy Tuesday,' the day following Memorial Day is typically the busiest of the year for storage and brings the high season into full swing. 5x5 and 5x10 units often see wider seasonal swings, primarily due to college students renting these smaller sizes when they leave town for the summer. College towns will be particularly affected by this.

It's often true that certain areas in a city offer much lower storage rental rates than others. 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. The sum you'll save each month could totally be worth the extra drive, especially if you'll only need to visit your unit on the rare occasion. But on the other hand, if we can show that self-storage (commonly known as mini storage or public self storage) is cheaper in Rowlett than its surroundings, there's no reason to waste time looking elsewhere.

2 storage facilities in Rowlett, TX are listed on SelfStorage.com's facility network. That's not a large number of facilities compared to most other cities in Texas. In fact, it's significantly fewer: the average city in Texas offers 16 facilities to choose from, 14 more than Rowlett does. It should come as litte surprise then that Rowlett only ranks as the 162nd largest storage market out of the 179 cities in Texas, accounting for a mere 0.07% of the state's total facilities. Just as it has few facilities relative to other cities in its state, Rowlett also has a meager number of self-storage facilities compared to other cities nationwide, 7 less than the national average of 9.
But making comparisons between any cities, whether it be comparing Rowlett to its neighbors in Texas or on a national scale, isn't a very fruitful excercise when we ignore a city's population. Do the 2 self storage facilities in Rowlett offer the 56,716 people living there enough extra storage space? How does Rowlett compare to similarly-sized cities? It seems clear, upon investigation, that Rowlett does in fact have a low number of storage facilities for its population. With 2 self-storage facilities it's 9 facilities below the average for cities in its 50,000 to 100,000 population bracket, which seems to indicate a low level of storage space. But then again, such a population bracket covers a wide range of cities. A more accurate measure would be Rowlett's per capita facility count--a measure which has strenthened our former results, showing Rowlett to indeed have little storage for its size. For a city of 56,716, 2 self-storage facilities is not a high number at all: in fact, Rowlett only places in the 5th percentile for facilities per capita in United States cities, indicating a meager level of storage coverage. Even if we restrict our scope of comparison to the state level, Rowlett doesn't seem to offer its population as much storage space as other cities do, attaining a low rank in the 1st percentile for facilities per capita among cities in Texas.
Another thing about Rowlett we feel we should mention is that it's growing, and rapidly, having seen its population increase by 25.7% between the 2000 and 2010 census, a 5.1% higher growth rate than the 20.6% the state of Texas experienced as a whole. With a low level of storage facilities per capita and a high population growth rate, expect there to be a healthy demand for storage unit in Rowlett for years to come.
