Some of the most successful storage finds occur when the storage seeker includes nearby towns, suburbs, and neighborhoods in their search. 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. You might have to spend more on gas getting out to that unit, but the savings you'll be building up could totally compensate for that. If self-storage (often known as public self storage and mini storage) in West Valley City is more expensive than elsewhere, then you should definitely broaden your search. So we asked our analysts to find out.

If you do your comparison shopping for storage units a few months from now, you might be surprised to see that prices have changed. That's because the self storage market is highly seasonal. Storage seasonality is in synch with the moving seasons, which are at their highest in the late spring and summer, as a huge amount of storage demand is generated by people moving into new homes. 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. 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 price difference between high and low seasons in West Valley City is minimal, which means you shouldn't have to worry about huge rate changes from one season to the next. Sudden seasonal price swings could of course still happen, and one of the best ways to prevent your rates from exploding is by locking them in for the entirety of your stay when you first sign the contract with the facility.
