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. In terms of the number of storage businesses in Woodbridge, are there plenty of options available, or few?
According to our estimates, there are approximately 9 storage businesses operating facilities in Woodbridge. On average, cities in Virginia have 8 facilities listed on our network, 1 less than Woodbridge. This leads us to conclude that Woodbridge has a somewhat-high number of facilities for being a city in Virginia. It should come as no surprise then that Woodbridge has the 13th-highest count of facilities out of all 48 cities on our network in Virginia, acting as home to 2.43% of facilities in Virginia. Nationally, Woodbridge's 9 storage facilities make it perfectly average.
But making comparisons between any cities, whether it be comparing Woodbridge to its neighbors in Virginia or on a national scale, isn't a very fruitful excercise when we ignore a city's population. Are the 9 storage facilities providing the 54,275 people living in Woodbridge with enough storage space? On average, cities with populations of 50,000 to 100,000 have 11 storage facilities listed on our network, which means that Woodbridge, with 2 fewer facilities, has a slightly-low amount of storage space for a city its size. We've further validated Woodbridge's relative lack of storage space by examining its per capita count of facilities. Per person, Woodbridge ranks in the 42nd percentile for self-storage facilities among cities across the nation. That means that 9 storage businesses serving a city of 54,275 people isn't a very high number, and indicates that finding the necessary storage space in Woodbridge could be more difficult than in other cities. Even if we restrict our scope of comparison to the state level, Woodbridge doesn't seem to offer its population as much storage space as other cities do, attaining a low rank in the 29th percentile for facilities per capita among cities in Virginia.
Storage prices often follow real estate trends, which means that certain areas of Woodbridge can be significantly more or less expensive than others. Look for a cheap unit in the 7095 ZIP code, where the average price of $128.01 is the lowest in Woodbridge. The 22192 ZIP code, on the other hand, is the most pricey neighborhood in Woodbridge, with an average price of $137.64 for a unit.
The demand for storage being as highly seasonal as it is, moving between highs and lows throughout the year, the season you decide to book a unit during can have as much affect on the price you pay as any other factor. 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. 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. In addition to families moving between homes, college students renting storage for the summer also contribute to demand during the high season, particularly in college towns.
The difference between seasons is somewhat greater in Woodbridge than it is elsewhere, meaning you should be more wary of seasonal effects. One way of insulating yourself against seasonal rate changes is by signing a contract with the facility that specifies a length of stay and a single, unchanging rate, if possible. The lowest prices on self storage in Woodbridge can be found during the month of September, with an average price of $50, while the most expensive month is June, with an average price of $158.14.
Much like real estate values, storage prices can be totally different on one side of a city as they are on another. This should be of little surprise given storage's conection to the real estate industry. 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. The longer trip to the facility could easily be worth the monthly savings, particularly if you only plan on accessing your unit occassionally. But on the other hand, if we can show that self-storage (commonly known as mini storage or public self storage) is cheaper in Woodbridge than its surroundings, there's no reason to waste time looking elsewhere.

An average price alone, however, doesn't tell you if storage is or isn't more affordable in one city versus another, as the cost of living will also be different. That's why we've developed a 'relative price' scale that takes state median income into account. In Virginia, the median income is $62,444.00 a year, which would make the average $115.4 unit in Woodbridge cost 2.22% of a median earner's monthly income. This is an extremely high percentage of income compared to other cities in Virginia, ranking in at the 87th percentile statewide. In other words, storage in Woodbridge is nowhere near dirt cheap.
