Some storage seekers are able to find much cheaper rates by looking in nearby communities in addition to their own. By expanding your search into areas you might not have thought to look, you might be able to happen upon some excellent deals. While it's true that accessing the unit will be more cumbersome the farther it is away, the potential savings could make you complacent with any extra inconvenience. If the average price of self storage (which includes facilities called mini storage or public self storage) is higher in Brigham City, then you'll definitely want to expand your search. So is it?

While average prices will give you a good idea of how much you should expect to spend, they don't necessarily tell us if storage is relatively affordable in that city. To give you a better idea of affordability, we've created a 'relative price' scale that estimates how expensive storage is for median income earners in that state. In Utah, the median income is $56,991.00 a year, which would make the average $29 unit in Brigham City cost 0.61% of a median earner's monthly income. As a percentage of the local median income this is actually a very cheap price to pay for self-storage. Indeed, when compared to other cities in Utah, the relative price of self-storage in Brigham City ranks at the 6th percentile.

So how many self-storage businesses are operating in Brigham City?
Analysts at SelfStorage.com report that there are an estimated 7 storage facilities located in the Brigham City area. To put that into a little more perspective, that's 2 less than the average number of facilities for a city in Utah, where cities possess an average 9 storage businesses each. Brigham City accounts for a mere 2.64% of facilities listed in Utah and only ranks as the 31 largest city out of the state's 31 in terms of number of facilities. Just as Brigham City has a below-average number of storage facilities for a city in Utah, the same is true on a national scale, where the city has 2 fewer facilities than the 9 that can be found in the average US city.
But of course, comparing the raw number of storage facilities in Brigham City to other cities in Utah and nationwide without taking population into account tells us very little. 18,900 people make Brigham City their home. Is 7 a relatively high or low number of storage facilities for such a population? Cities with populations of 10,000 to 25,000 average 6 storage facilities, 1 fewer than Brigham City's 7, which leads us to conclude that Brigham City has a decent amount of storage space for a city its size. That Brigham City has few facilities for its size seems to be further strenthened when we look at Brigham City's actual per capita storage facility coverage. On a per capita basis versus other cities nationwide, Brigham City ranks in the 68th percentile, meaning that it offers its residents a somewhat-large amount of storage space. And just as Brigham City ranks high for storage space per capita on a national scale, it also has a large number of storage businesses for a city in Utah, placing at the 83rd percentile.
It also bears mentioning that Brigham City saw some population growth in the past decade, growing by 8.1% from 2000 to 2010. Though that's not an insignificant number, it is in fact 15.7% less growth than the 23.8% the state of Utah experienced over the same period. With its lower growth rate and higher number of facilities per capita versus other cities in its state, Brigham City's supply of storage units should outweigh the demand.
