The Cost of Self Storage in Arlington, VA

Located near Washington D.C., Arlington, Virginia, is home to a large number of seasonal residents. When the government is in session, Congress and its staff members descend on the area, pulling items out of storage to furnish a seasonal rental. When it’s time to head home, many of these workers rent storage in anticipation of the next year’s visit. The need to pack up and move households several times per year may help explain why smaller storage units are below state and national averages at just $40.25, but units large enough to hold several rooms worth of furniture are around $25-40 more expensive in Arlington.

Another factor that may be driving up storage costs in this area is the high cost of real estate. The median home value in Arlington is $681,600, which is nearly 164% higher than the state average. When real estate costs more, it often means that storage units also cost more.

What to Consider when Looking for Storage in Arlington, VA

When looking at different storage facilities in Arlington, security is often a top priority. While Virginia as a whole has relatively little property crime at a score of just 28.1, according to Best Places, Arlington ranks much higher at 43.9. High property crime can mean that storage units are more likely to be broken into, making a good security system and camera surveillance amenities that might be worth paying a premium for.

During the summer months, Arlington can get quite hot with temperatures up to around 90 degrees F. Higher than average rainfall also means the humidity can be an issue. With heat and humidity, climate control might be another option to ask about. More delicate items (electronics, clothing, cloth-covered furniture, etc.) may be vulnerable to mold, mildew or rust.

Helpful Tips for Moving to Arlington, VA

The weather is fairly moderate, with very little annual snowfall and very few days that get exceedingly hot.

Cost of living is another concern any time you’re planning to move. Arlington is considered a fairly expensive destination, in large part due to the high cost of housing. Most other expenses are in line with national averages, though longer commute times also means transportation is a bit more expensive.
