A self-storage company gives you extra space for your furniture, seasonal items or other belongings that won’t fit in your home. Residents moving into a new Dallas apartment might find they need to put excess items into a storage unit, and University of Texas-Dallas students often rent storage space while on summer break.

Which Dallas storage unit company is best for me?

No matter your reason for storage, it’s crucial to choose the right facility for what you intend to place there. When comparing storage units, be sure to consider:

  • Unit size: Some facilities may not have available units in the size you need or don’t rent spaces for vehicle storage — especially those close to busy areas like Downtown Dallas.
  • Ease of access: Facilities with exterior units generally allow for drive-up access, which makes it easier to unload and load bulky items. Interior facilities may involve carrying your items a longer distance to your unit or using stairs to reach an upper-floor unit. A few interior facilities have drive-through access to units.
  • Unit location: Areas like East Dallas, Pleasant Grove and East Oak Cliff are prone to flash floods. Storage buildings with multiple stories keep your belongings above ground level and out of the water.
  • Climate-control: Indoor units typically have heating and cooling systems that keep the temperature stable throughout the year. Dallas' high heat and humidity can damage some commonly stored items, including papers, wood furniture, photos and fabric.

Other features also play a significant role in your self storage selection. Some storage places provide 24/7 access, vehicle storage, tamper-proof locks or Wi-Fi. Residents in high-crime areas, such as Five Points and Rose-Bennett Grid, might value facilities with advanced security features, such as surveillance cameras, brightly lit indoor and outdoor spaces, gated access, on-site managers and keypad entry.

How much is self storage in Dallas?

Self storage in Dallas costs about $30 a month for a 5’ x 5’ storage unit. Below are the average prices of storage units in Dallas based on their size:

SizeAverage monthly cost
5’ x 5’$30
5’ x 10’$55
10’ x 10’$90
10’ x 20’$155

The monthly cost of your storage unit varies based on the facility’s location, your unit’s location within the property and whether the space is climate-controlled. Storage units in popular, highly populated areas tend to cost more than those in remote locations — storage units in neighborhoods like Deep Ellum near Downtown Dallas start at $37 for a 5’ x 5’ space, while facilities in Northwest Dallas rent 6’ x 7’ units starting at $27. Storage facilities in less populated areas are also more likely to offer vehicle storage.

Depending on the value of your stored-away possessions, you may also want to factor in the cost of storage insurance. Under Texas state law, storage facilities aren’t responsible for any loss or damage to your things. Insurance for storage units typically ranges from $0.50 to $2.00 for every $100 of insurance coverage.

When choosing a storage unit, be sure to ask the facility about current discounts or promotions. Some facilities offer a free or discounted first month when you sign a long-term contract. Many units offer discounts to seniors, military personnel or members of organizations like AAA. Always check the company’s website as well — many companies have discounted prices online.
