Some communities are home to plenty of storage businesses, offering those looking for storage a wide variety of choices, while other communities are less-well served and may need to expand their search into neighboring cities and suburbs. How many facilties are operating in Tyler?
SelfStorage.com has 37 storage facilties in Tyler, TX listed on its network. When compared to other cities in the state, Tyler offers a slightly-higher number of facilities, 21 more than the state average of 16 per city. Tyler also boasts the 11th highest count of storage facilities out of all 179 cities in Texas, making up 1.29% of the state's facility count. Tyler also has a large number of facilities for a city on the national scale, with 28 more facilities than the national average of 9.
But of course, comparing the raw number of storage facilities in Tyler to other cities in Texas and nationwide without taking population into account tells us very little. So how does Tyler, with its population of 98,872, compare to cities with similar populations? On average, cities with populations of 50,000 to 100,000 have 11 storage businesses listed on our self-storage network. That's 26 fewer than Tyler's 37. In other words, it's pretty clear that Tyler offers a great amount of storage space for its size. Indeed, that Tyler has a good number of storage facilities for its population is affirmed once more when we look at its per person facility count. Among cities nationwide, Tyler ranks in the 68th percentile for the number of storage units per capita, offering its 98,872 residents a moderately-high amount of storage space. When it comes to cities in Texas, Tyler still has a comparatively-high level of storage space per capita, ranking in at the 66th percentile.
In discussing facilities per capita, we also feel that we should mention the fact that though Tyler's population is growing, the rest of Texas is growing more. Tyler's population saw a 17% increase in the first decade of this century, 3.6% less than the 20.6% increase the whole state of Texas experienced. Add that low rate of growth to the fact that Tyler also has a high number of facilities per capita, and you get what appears to be an excellent place to find a storage unit.
Self storage prices are highly seasonal, with rental prices often fluctuating widely throughout the year. 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. National Moving Day (the day following Memorial Day) is typically seen as the first real day of the high season and is often the busiest day of the year for storage facilities. 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.
Seasonality doesn't affect prices in Tyler as much as it does other cities, meaning there's less of a difference in price between low and high seasons. Despite the low level of seasonality, those looking for a self storage unit may still want to lock in their price at the time of booking. Your chances of getting a low price on a storage unit in Tyler are highest during December, when the average rental rate drops to a low $41.14. Your chances are lowest during November, which with an average price of $107.25 is the most expensive time to book a unit.
Some of the most successful storage finds occur when the storage seeker includes nearby towns, suburbs, and neighborhoods in their search. It could indeed be that a facility just a mile or two outside of town offers a much lower rate, but you won't find that facility unless you include a wider area in your search. Though you may have to travel farther to access your unit, the additional savings might just be worth it. If the average price of self storage (which includes facilities called mini storage or public self storage) is higher in Tyler, then you'll definitely want to expand your search. So is it?
