      Choosing an LA self storage company

      Los Angeles has hundreds of self storage locations, so find a facility that has the amenities, security and pricing that works for you. However, the first thing you should do when looking for a storage unit is to make a list of your needs.

      Ask yourself if you need a climate-controlled storage unit to protect keepsakes or other valuables safe from the elements? Most climate-controlled storage units are also indoors, which makes them more secure than their outdoor counterparts.

      Another consideration is how often and in what way do you need to access your storage unit. A lot of indoor units may not have drive-up access, which means you have to carry or cart your items to your unit. You should also consider the security of your potential unit. Outdoor storage units with drive-up access may be less challenging to get to, but they also are less secure than an indoor unit. Also, look into video monitoring and 24/7 on-site staff members.

      Los Angeles storage unit costs

      The monthly cost of a storage unit in Los Angeles can range from $100 - $300 per month depending on the size of the unit, amenities and location. For instance, the average cost of a 5' x 5' ft storage unit is around $100 a month, but with some investigation, you can find them available for as low as $40 a month. Car storage varies significantly in price depending on the size of the car, but $225 is an excellent monthly budget to set for storing a sedan. For more information, take a look at our breakdown below:

      Unit typeAverage monthly cost
      5’ x 5’ unit$100
      5’ x 10’ unit$160
      10’ x 15’ unit$300
      Car storage$225

      Several factors create this cost difference like size, amenities and location of the unit. The most significant cost is based on the size of the unit, but taking a close second is the location — look to pay more in Marina del Rey than Palmdale. Study the neighboring cities in LA County and decide if it makes sense to take a short drive for a cheaper unit. Most LA storage unit services have a month-to-month payment option; however, if you pay in advance for the storage unit, you could qualify for discounts. Keep in mind that insurance is always recommended — paying that little extra is typically worth it to cover your property.
