      Average cost of storage units in Albuquerque

      A 10’ x 10’ storage unit in Albuquerque costs about $100 a month to rent, which is roughly equivalent to the national average of $1 per square foot of space. The average cost for a 5’ x 10’ unit, which is the most popular size option in Albuquerque, is around $50 a month.

      In suburban towns like Edgewood, prices dip slightly for a 100-square-feet unit. You also pay less per square foot for larger spaces — for units that are 150 square feet or larger, the average cost is only $0.75 per square foot.

      Size is the most significant factor when determining storage unit prices, but other things that influence the cost include:

      Amenities like climate control and electricity bump up monthly rates, as do heightened security measures and 24-hour access. In more crowded areas of Albuquerque, where units are contained in multilevel buildings, ground-floor storage is more valuable due to its easy accessibility.
      Renters insurance
      Albuquerque law allows storage facilities to require tenants to carry insurance, and some do. Companies are not liable for property damage caused by fire, burglary or pest infestations, so storage insurance helps you recover financially in the event of unforeseen loss. The average rate for storage insurance in Albuquerque is $20 a month for $10,000 worth of coverage. Policies are available through the same companies that offer renters and homeowners insurance, and some storage companies also sell insurance. You may already be covered by your homeowners or renters policy — ask your provider to be sure.
      Additional fees
      Some storage facilities charge a one-time administrative fee when you move in to offset the cost of processing your account and paperwork. Some locations also require security deposits. Storage users should read their lease agreements and be aware that rates on month-to-month leases can increase at any time, typically with just one month’s notice. They should also familiarize themselves with New Mexico state lien laws, which make it possible for storage companies to auction your belongings if you don’t keep up with your rent payments.
      Specials and discounts
      Targeted specials are commonly available for students, military personnel, AAA members, seniors and first-time customers. Companies may also provide discounts for signing a long-term lease instead of a month-to-month agreement.

      Choosing an Albuquerque self storage company

      Once you know what you want to store and how much room you need to store it, you can narrow your list of storage providers. Some popular features Albuquerque residents look for include:

      Indoor or outdoor storage
      Indoor storage is expensive for space-hogging vehicles, but it’s common for other possessions. Small units keep documents and valuables safe, and larger ones are often used for furniture and appliances. Climate control is an optional upgrade. Temperature-sensitive items — electronics, heirlooms, private collections and artwork — should be stored in climate-controlled units to prevent damage. Outdoor units often have drive-up access and are great for convenient unloading and loading or items that aren’t temperature sensitive.
      Facility location
      If you plan on dropping off your possessions and then not accessing them until you clear out your unit, it’s often worth saving money by choosing a storage facility in a more remote area. If you are part of a small business and need to visit your unit daily, however, it’s usually worth it to pay more for convenient access.
      Unit location
      Consider where you want your unit to be located within the facility. If it's not on the ground floor, you may be lugging your items up and down stairs. Not all storage facilities have freight elevators, so it’s best to check before signing a lease.
      Some locations are equipped with free Wi-Fi, work stations and services like printing and copying. Others sell boxes and packing materials on-site. Also consider amenities such as video surveillance, self-service kiosks and 24/7 access.
