We see ads for cheap storage all the time, going about our normal days, but it begs the obvious question: what does cheap storage cost? The word “cheap” is relative, after all. What may seem cheap to me may not seem cheap to someone who just lost their job and has no prospects for a new one.
So, let’s get down to facts in this article. We are Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, and we’ve been one of the self storage leaders in the Fort Worth, Texas area for quite some time, so we know a thing or two about storage units. Call us at 817-439-1380 for all of your storage needs, and we can answer any questions you might have about self storage, car storage, boat storage, or RV storage.
Now, let’s talk about cheap storage!
The price structure of self storage units
Self storage units are priced according to size. Consequently, a 5’x5’ storage unit will cost less than the largest unit, a 20’x30’. Keep in mind, also, that there is no national price structure regulated by any self storage industry. The rental price is determined by the Laws of Supply and Demand; in other words, whatever price the market will support in any particular city.
Having said that, prices are fairly standard from city to city, with the smallest units going for around $50 per month, maybe a little more in one city, maybe a few dollars less in another city. The largest will approach, or slightly rise above, $400 per month. Be advised, also, that there is an added charge for climate controlled storage, i.e. air-conditioned/heated.
Is that storage unit rental price “cheap?”
We can’t answer that particular question. Again, “cheap” is a relative term. To Bill Gates, or Elon Musk, $50 is chump change. To someone having a hard time paying bills each month, it might as well be $1000 per month. Both prices are unattainable to someone with no job and no prospects.
Is $50 per month cheaper than storing your possessions in your locked garage? No, but it is considerably more secure, in most cases, and it is much more convenient, storing items elsewhere, and thus freeing up the garage for other things, most notably a vehicle.
Our job, though, is not to convince you to use self storage. We have a constant stream of customers at Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, and we don’t want to sound self-serving by saying that self storage is for everyone, because it is not. What we will say is that $50 per month is a low price in relation to other storage options, and it is definitely more secure than other options. You will have to decide if it is cheap or not.
