The Cost of Self Storage in Riverside, CA

Self-storage units in Riverside tend to be slightly less expensive than the average rates in California, although only by a small amount. It is still slightly higher than the United States average, which reflects general trends in cost of living. Real estate costs in Riverside are significantly lower than California as a whole while still being among the highest in the United States. Riverside is also home to the University of California, Riverside, as well as California Baptist University, which may increase demand and help drive up self-storage prices in the area. However, it still remains about halfway between the state and national average costs.

What to Consider when Looking for Storage in Riverside, CA

One of the things that draws people to California is the weather, and Riverside is no exception. It tends to be dry, sunny and warm, which can make traditional self-storage without climate control a good choice for everything but the most temperature-sensitive items. The hot sun can make covered storage for collector vehicles important, though.

Although Riverside is a fairly safe city overall, it does have a somewhat high property crime rate. Sperling’s Best Places puts it at 46.7, which is higher than both the national rate of 35.4 and the California rate of 37.1. This makes security an important consideration when picking a storage facility. Look for units with features such as on-site management, computerized gates and door alarms for peace of mind.

Helpful Tips for Moving to Riverside, CA

Although Riverside traffic isn’t as bad as some cities in southern California, it still struggles with slow commutes and somewhat limited mass transit options compared to other major metro areas nearby. If you plan to go to your storage unit frequently, it’s a good idea to make sure it’s close to your home or office to reduce the amount of time you spend in traffic.

The weather in Riverside tends to be pleasant year-round, which is great for people who love to be outdoors. Average lows during winter months tend to be in the 40s, so residents rarely have to worry about freezes. However, July and August tend to be very hot, with highs in the mid- to upper-90s, so climate-controlled storage may be important for heat-sensitive items.
