Easily the #1 question we are asked is about self storage prices.  And, occasionally, we will have a caller make a comment about how expensive a storage unit is.  Rather than duck comments like those, we prefer to meet them head on in an article, so that’s exactly what we will do, right here, right now.

We are Mouser Self Storage, providing storage solutions for the residents of Fort Worth and, in particular, for South Fort Worth, Alvarado, and Johnson County.  Call us at 682-800-3949 for more information or visit us at our location in the 917 Industrial Park on Mouser Parkway.

Overall view of self storage prices.

Self storage units pricing does not happen in a vacuum. The laws of supply and demand, and the overall laws of the market, dictate what is a fair price to be charged.  To state it a different way, if there are five self storage places in a town, and four of them have prices which range from $50 for the smallest storage unit to $150 per month for the largest, and one of them charged 50% for comparable units, it would not take long for the outlier, the one charging too much, to go out of business.

Because prices are fairly uniform in any given city, what becomes the deciding factors are the level of customer service and the quality of security available.

General price structure for various types of storage.

Storage for household items, the traditional way self storage is used, will range from about $50 per month to as much as $200 per month, depending upon the size of the storage unit and the city you are located in.

Car storage will require slightly larger units, but you are looking somewhere in the $100-$200 per month range.

RV self storage and boat storage require the largest units, and those will range from $100 to $200.

And, finally, some storage facilities, like Mouser Self Storage, offer small hobby shops which come with lights, electricity, and usually 24/7 access. You are looking for a rental expense between $400 and $900, again depending upon the size of the unit and the city.

Replacement cost for those items.

The prices mentioned above may, or may not, seem expensive to you, but they are competitive and indicative of 95% of the storage companies you will come across.  Expensive or not, compared to the replacement cost should your car, boat, RV, or furnishings be stolen, there is no doubt that self storage is the bargain of the two.  Replace a 30’ RV? $100,000, easy.  Replace a boat? Replace a car?  You are easily looking at a replacement cost of twenty grand or more.  And even if you have full insurance coverage, the hassle of replacement can be a nightmare.

All of which explains why storage facilities are so popular with over 60,000 available in the United States.  It is better to be safe than sorry.
