The Cost of Self Storage in Minneapolis, MN

The cost of self-storage units can vary drastically from one city to the next. While few people think of storage units as real estate, many of the same pricing variables affect the storage unit and real estate marketplaces. Storage units located in areas with high property values will usually cost more because the land they occupy is more valuable. Demand for storage space can also be a key factor, so units in dense urban centers and college towns can also carry a higher price tag.

Minneapolis is the largest city in the state of Minnesota, and average storage unit costs tend to be slightly higher than both state and national averages. These higher prices are likely due in part to the huge student population at University of Minnesota – Twin Cities, which has over 35,000 students. Housing costs in Minneapolis are also above both state and national averages, indicating that self-storage units may be more expensive to operate. There are, however, some deals to be found for thrifty storage shoppers in Minneapolis. The average cost of 10×10 storage units in Minneapolis is just over $106 monthly, which falls below the state average of $112.

What to Consider when Looking for Storage in Minneapolis, MN

If you’re planning to keep your possessions in a storage unit, it’s important that they stay safe and secure. That’s why it’s important to consider the amount of property theft in a location before committing to a storage unit. According to Best Places, Minneapolis has a property theft index of 63.3, which is significantly higher than the state index of 33.2 and the national average of 35.4. With these increased crime rates, it may be worth considering a storage facility with limited access to non-members, on-site guards and modern security equipment.

Weather is another key consideration when choosing a storage unit in Minneapolis. This area has long, cold winters, with average temperatures falling into the teens and single digits during January and February. Be sure to keep these cold temperatures in mind and consider a climate-controlled storage unit if you plan to store liquids or sensitive items such as instruments.
