The Cost of Self-Storage in Boulder, CO

Self-storage in Colorado tends to be fairly expensive compared to other areas in the United States, and storage in Boulder is even more expensive than the state average. A typical 10×10 unit costs around $113 a month in Colorado but goes for around $168 in Boulder. The national average is $95 a month.

This cost discrepancy is due in part to the generally high cost of living in Boulder. In particular, real estate tends to be more than three times higher than the national average, which makes it expensive to build and maintain storage facilities. In addition, Boulder is home to the main campus of the University of Colorado, which draws a large student population. Many students need off-site storage throughout the year, which makes units scarce and leads to higher prices.

What to Consider When Looking for Storage in Boulder, CO

Boulder is known for its easy access for skiing and other winter sports, but that also means that the climate can be fairly harsh. It receives about 71 inches of snow a year, which is about 40 inches more than the U.S. average, and the average winter low is around 19 degrees Fahrenheit. Summers can also get fairly hot, with the average high being around 88 degrees. This puts stored belongings in danger of warping and other damage caused by temperature changes, so climate-controlled storage units are a good choice for any valuable or delicate items.

The city also has a moderately high rate of property crime, with a score of 40.9 compared to the U.S. average of 35.4. Residents who are storing valuable or easily stolen items may want to consider more secure storage units, such as ones with individual door alarms and resident managers.

Helpful Tips for Moving to Boulder, CO

Boulder is known in part for its active lifestyle, and that’s reflected in its excellent pedestrian and bicycle options. Many neighborhoods are highly walkable, and the city has many interconnected bike and pedestrian paths. It also has an easy-to-use and extensive bus system. Even residents who commute by car typically only drive about 19 minutes each way, which is lower than the U.S. average of about 26 minutes.

Although Boulder has a slightly high property crime rate, the rate of violent crime is very low, and it’s generally considered to be a very safe area. Residents tend to be fairly affluent, and the economy is generally strong. This helps offset the high cost of living, although people moving to Boulder should be prepared for a very competitive housing market.
