The Cost of Self Storage in Vancouver, WA

Self-storage units in Vancouver are priced fairly close to state averages. While 5×10 and 10×15 units in the city cost a little more than Washington’s average prices, 5×5, 10×10 and 10×20 units cost a little less. When compared with national averages, storage units in Vancouver and throughout the entire state cost more regardless of size.

In general, costs in New York are higher due to the state’s overall high cost of living. Although Buffalo’s cost of living is lower than the U.S. average, storage unit prices in the city tend to be closer to the state average. Storage costs in Buffalo are also impacted by the high number of colleges in the area. Demand for storage in college towns is high as many students prefer to store belongings rather than transport them home on summer breaks. This can drive up the price of storage units.
