      Average Houston storage unit cost

      The cost of a storage unit in Houston ranges from $35 to $125. The most significant influence on a storage unit's price is its size. However, its proximity to busy areas like Houston's Downtown neighborhood as well as the time of year also plays a role. Below are some average prices you can expect to pay for self-storage in Houston.

      Unit Size in FeetAverage Cost
      5x5$34
      5x10$50
      10x10$73
      10x15$100
      10x20$125

      Depending on the time of year you book, storage unit prices can vary by as much as $26 per month. Prices are lowest in January and highest in June.

      You’ll find that most storage contracts are month-to-month and can be paid online, in-person at your facility or through the mail. All major payment methods are typically accepted, including credit and debit cards, check, cash and money orders.

      When you first rent your unit, you may have to pay a one-time administrative fee and leave a security deposit. Administrative costs are usually less than $25, and deposits typically range between $25 and $50.

      Although not required by Texas state law, it may be a good idea to purchase storage insurance. Self-storage facilities in Houston aren't responsible for any losses or damages that may occur to your things while in their care.

      Unexpected events do happen. During Hurricane Harvey, hundreds of storage facilities in Houston sustained terrible flood damage. Tornadoes that tear through Houston can also damage storage units and vehicles in exposed rental spaces. Although insurance prices start at $4 to $10 per month, many facilities offer AAA or military personnel discounts that can help even out costs.

      Choosing the right Houston self storage company

      What you need to store has a significant role in finding the best storage company for your needs. However, remember that if you want space for an RV or a boat, it may be difficult to find vehicle storage in crowded areas like Downtown Houston. Vehicle storage is more readily available in less populated parts of town, like Southwest Houston.

      To keep temperature-sensitive belongings like photos, furniture and clothes from getting ruined by Houston's heat and humidity, consider climate-controlled units. Unlike outdoor units, these indoor units have heating and cooling systems to keep temperatures stable. They can be more challenging to access, but may still be worth the extra cost and hassle to keep your items in good condition.

      Amenities like advanced security features, tamper-proof locks and high-speed Wi-Fi access can also help sway your decision. Some facilities even have drive-up access for your indoor unit, so you can drive your car into the building and pull up next to your rental space. A few companies make moving in a lot easier by providing free truck rentals and cardboard boxes at affordable prices.
