The Cost of Self Storage in Albuquerque, NM

In Albuquerque, monthly self-storage rentals typically range between $40.98-$131.31, depending on the size and features of the unit. While this is a little higher than the statewide average of $33-$92, it is roughly on par with the national average range of $41-$133. In addition to size, common factors that influence the cost of storage units include how great the demand is for storage options versus the number of units available, what security and climate-control features the facility provides and how much real estate costs. In areas where purchasing property is costly, renting space on that property is also generally costly. Similarly, in cities with several colleges or seasonal residents, the demand for storage, and therefore the cost of storage, may be higher.

The cost of living and the cost of housing in Albuquerque is about 3% higher than the state average but about 10% below the national average. However, the city is home to several colleges and universities, including four-year schools like the University of New Mexico and Southwest University of Visual Arts, which may drive up the demand for short-term storage solutions along with the monthly cost of self-storage.

What to Consider when Looking for Storage in Albuquerque, NM

While the size needed for a storage unit is an important consideration when selecting the best self-storage unit, renters should also evaluate other factors like the region’s climate and crime rate. In areas in which property crime is prevalent, items that are stored for an extended period of time are at a greater risk of theft or vandalism. Similarly, in cities that experience extreme temperatures, items that are not stored in a climate-controlled unit may be damaged.

In Albuquerque, year-round temperatures tend to be extreme, with temperatures ranging between 24-92 degrees F. Temperatures over 90 degrees can cause DVDs, CDs and vinyl records to warp and wooden furniture to expand and crack, and temperatures below 30 degrees F can cause items to retain moisture or contract, expand and crack. In addition to this, property crime rates in Albuquerque are very high, rating 85.3 on a 100-point scale. For this reason, many renters choose storage facilities with security features like surveillance cameras and alarm systems.
