Affordable Self Storage

The problem with any article titled “affordable self storage” is this observation: what is affordable for one person may not be affordable to another.  Therein lies the problem.  In this article, we will look at the cost range you can expect for self storage, and then pose this final question to you: is it worth it, for you?

Affordable self storage for household possessions.

Self storage facilities come in all shapes and sizes, and there truly is no such thing as a standard size.  At one location, the smallest storage unit might be 5’x5’.  At another it might be 10’x10’.  At the other end of the spectrum, the largest could be 10’x30’ while down the road you might find one which is 20’x40’.

All we can tell you about cost is that the rental cost increases as the size of the storage unit increases.  We can also tell you that some storage facilities offer amenities like electrical outlets, lighting, 24/7 access, climate control self storage, etc., and those amenities will almost always cost extra.

The smallest storage unit will usually cost in the $40-$75 per month range. The largest can run you $200 or more, depending upon where you go.  Beyond that we really don’t feel comfortable in quoting prices; besides, when you read this article will also affect any prices we might name, as prices do increase over time.

Self storage for cars, RVs, and boats.

Most storage companies also offer car storage, RV self storage, and boat storage units, and as you might suspect, those units are generally a bit more expensive than the normal storage units.  There are also a select few storage companies, like Blue Mound 287 Self Storage and our sister company, Mouser Self Storage, in Alvarado which offer small shops and hobby shops, and those have their own price structure.

Cost vs need.

Are any of these mentioned above affordable self storage for you? There is no way for us to answer that question.  People generally use storage units to safely house possessions they have no room for in their home or garage.  A smaller percentage us storage solutions when they are in-between permanent housing, or when they need storage while deployed for the military.  Needing storage is almost always a situation of personal opinion; very few people truly “need” a storage unit.  However, for the vast majority, those who have the required cash to cover the rental cost, storage units are a convenience which are well-worth the expense.
