Storage unit costs can vary significantly throughout the country, and local real estate costs are one of the major factors. In areas with higher property values, storage unit companies may need to charge higher rents. Portland’s property values are significantly higher than the national average, and this translates to pricier storage units. Depending on the size of the storage unit, Portland renters can expect to spend anywhere between $11-$56 more than the national average. However, Portland’s storage units are often more affordable than the Oregon average. In this major city, there are many storage unit operators vying for business, and competition helps lower prices somewhat.

Before choosing a storage unit in Portland, renters should consider the types of items they want to store. Portland’s property crime rate is more than double the national average, so renters who plan to store antiques, jewelry or other valuables may prefer a more secure facility. To protect renters’ items, some facilities have access-control systems and individual door alarms. Renters may also want to ask if the facility is surveilled by the local police.
Portland’s weather is fairly mild, with few extremely hot or cold days throughout the year. For short-term storage, a climate-controlled unit may not be necessary. Renters who plan to store their items long term or who are storing delicate items, such as collectibles and photographs, may benefit from an air conditioned and heated unit.
