The Cost of Self-Storage in Pittsburgh, PA

In Pittsburgh, the smaller the self-storage unit, the higher the rental cost compared to state and U.S. averages. However, a 10×10 storage unit is a deal at $78, which is less than the U.S. average price for a unit that size. Smaller units may be at a premium because of the demand from students at the three major universities in the Pittsburgh area, Carnegie Mellon, University of Pittsburgh and Duquesne University. When choosing a storage facility, other things besides size should be considered. The presence of on-site staff, the ease of getting to stored items and the availability of 24-hour access are important considerations, and it may also be worth paying more to rent a space in a location closer to home.

What to Consider When Looking for Storage in Pittsburgh, PA

Three major rivers wind through Pittsburgh, so one consideration when looking for a self-storage location is whether it’s on the best side of one of the many bridges in the city. Snowfall lasts 6 months a year, and Pittsburgh gets 9.1 inches of snow on average, so it’s also a good idea to find a storage location that offers indoor access.

Pittsburgh has its share of property crime, so a quality storage facility should include adequate protection from theft. More crime occurs in the city than in outlying areas, however, so a self-storage company on the outskirts of Pittsburgh would be safer, statistically. Some self-storage facilities are fenced, with vehicles only able to gain access to parking areas by entering a code. At the minimum, a self-storage company should employ on-site video surveillance and provide sufficient lighting on the premises.
