The Cost of Self-Storage in Rochester, NY

The rental costs for small self-storage units (5 feet wide) in Rochester are approximately $20 higher and nearly twice as expensive than the New York state and U.S. averages, respectively. However, rental for larger units (10 feet wide) is relatively more affordable than the state averages, and these cost differences are due to a few factors.

In Rochester, the overall cost of living is significantly lower than the New York state median and the national average. This includes affordable housing costs, both in terms of real estate sales and home rentals, translating to less expensive self-storage costs for larger units that usually store household and business items. The rental costs for smaller storage units may be more expensive due to their higher demand, coming from a significant college student population and a large percentage of residents who are single. The Rochester metropolitan area has at least 22 colleges and universities, and the city’s large total population ranks third in New York.

What to Consider When Looking for Storage in Rochester, NY

Rochester’s continental climate is characterized by four distinct seasons with cold, snowy winters and large seasonal temperature differences in a year. This may negatively affect items that are sensitive to extreme conditions and drastic temperature changes when not properly stored. To help prevent the damaging effects of fluctuating temperatures and humidity, opt for climate-controlled units to protect delicate valuables such as artwork, electronics, documents, photographs and furniture.

The property crime rate in Rochester is 57.6, which is more than twice as high as the New York state average of 24.5. It is crucial to select self-service storage facilities that utilize tight security measures including restricted gate access, 24-hour video surveillance and individual unit alarms to help prevent theft and burglary incidents. Renting self-storage units in safer surrounding towns outside Rochester or within the Rochester metropolitan area may be another option to further secure valuable items.
