The problem with any article about self storage unit prices is this: it will be outdated just about as fast as the ink dries on the proverbial article.

Still, people want to know, so we will do our best to give you price ranges you can use, prices “in the neighborhood,” which will help you to make decisions about storage units.

We are Mouser Self Storage, providing storage solutions to the South Fort Worth/Alvarado area. Call us at 682-800-3949 for more information about car storage, RV storage, boat storage units, or simply storage for your household possessions.

Self storage unit prices depend upon size of the unit.

One fact you can take to the proverbial bank is this: the larger the storage units, the more expensive they will be.  Small storage units, we are talking 5’x10’ or 10’x10’, will run you in the $50-$75 per month range.  Larger units, thirty feet and up, can run you a few hundred dollars per month.  Again, giving you a specific price would be misleading; prices change constantly in this industry, depending mostly upon competition, which we will talk more about later in this article.

Amenities increase the price.

What do we mean by amenities affecting self storage unit prices? Electrical outlets in a storage unit would be an amenity.  If a unit is a climate control storage unit, it will cost more.  Some units offer 24/7 access, which may cost more.  And some offer a higher level of security, which will affect the price, although to our way of thinking it should not.

Competition will regulate the price, so shop for security.

Because self storage unit prices are fairly standard from one facility to the next, in any city, the factor you really should home in on is security.  How secure if the storage facility?  How safe are your possessions?

In the self storage industry there are four levels of security which can be employed:

  • Fenced perimeter with only one main access gate for arrivals and departures.
  • Video monitoring system which monitor every nook and cranny of the facility and adjoining property.
  • On-site management because nothing spells “deterrent” like a human being.
  • Individualized, computerized access keys, for the main gate and the storage unit.

Some storage places, like Mouser Self Storage, will offer all four levels of security. Some only three, some two, and heaven forbid, there are some which only offer one level of security, although we hesitate to even use the word “security” when speaking about those companies.  The old adage “you get what you pay for” certainly applies with the self storage industry.  If you want totally security for your possessions, you might have to pay a little extra for it.

A final word about Mouser Self Storage.
