It's often true that the same storage unit at the same storage facility will cost significantly more or less in April than it does in November. That's because self storage is a seasonal industry. The high season lasts from late spring to late summer, the most popular period for those moving into a new home. 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. If you're looking for a storage unit in a location with a large student population, be aware that your high season might see an even greater lift in prices than elsewhere, as students often book a large number of units during the summer.
The difference between seasons is somewhat greater in Tooele than it is elsewhere, meaning you should be more wary of seasonal effects. The best way to keep seasonal changes at bay is to negotiate with the facility when you first book your unit for a single rate that will remain unchanged for the entire time you stay there. Those looking for self storage in Tooele will find the lowest prices in April, with its average price of $35. March, however, is the most expensive month, averaging $124.
Successfully booking the storage unit you're looking for will have much to do with the number of self storage businesses in your city, as the more facilities there are the more options you'll have available. So how many storage facilities are there in Tooele?
Industry experts at SelfStorage.com estimate that there are approximately 6 storage facilities servicing the Tooele, UT community. For a city in Utah, Tooele is home to relatively few storage facilities. The average city in Utah has 9 facilities listed on our network, a full 3 more than what can be found in Tooele. Tooele accounts for a mere 2.26% 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. In addition to having few facilities compared to other cities in Utah, Tooele also offers a below-average number of storage facilities compared to other cities across the nation: 3 fewer than the national average of 9, to be precise.
But of course, comparing the raw number of storage facilities in Tooele to other cities in Utah and nationwide without taking population into account tells us very little. So how does Tooele, with its population of 30,702, compare to cities with similar populations? On average, cities with populations of 25,000 to 50,000 have 7 storage facilities listed on our network, which means that Tooele, with 1 fewer facilities, has a slightly-low amount of storage space for a city its size. One may of course argue that measuring Tooele against cities of a like size isn't the best yardstick and does not prove that there are few storage facilities for the number of people who live there. In order to address these concerns we've looked at Tooele's facilities per person, which seems to have validated our former conclusions. The 30,702 people living in Tooele have access to 6 self-storage facilities, which puts them in the 48th percentile for facilities per capita nationwide. That's not a very high rank, meaning that Tooele doesn't offer a ton of storage businesses for its 30,702 residents to choose from. However, though Tooele is below the 50th percentile at the national level, in terms of cities in Utah it falls in the 63rd percentile, meaning it has a large amount of storage space per capita for its state.
Finally, according to US Census data, Tooele's population grew by 32.7% between the 2000 and 2010 censuses, a surprising 8.9% more growth than the 23.8% that Utah grew as a whole. On top of the demand generated by an influx of new inhabitants, low levels of facilities per capita could drive demand for a storage unit in Tooele even higher.
