      San Antonio storage unit costs

      The most significant factor when it comes to self storage pricing is the size of your storage unit. For instance, a 5' x 5' unit averages to $40 a month, but the monthly cost for a much larger 10' x 20' unit is roughly $161. However, other factors include contract length, payment plan, insurance, location of the unit and the time of year you start renting.

      SizeAverage monthly cost
      5' x 5’$40
      5’ x 10’$53
      10’ x 10’$89
      10’ x 15’$113
      10’ x 20’$161

      Typically, storage units rent by the month with bill pay online or autopay. It's important you pay for your storage unit on time – Texas law gives storage companies the right to place a lien on your goods if payment is 15 days overdue. The law also allows companies to sell your items at auction.

      We strongly recommend looking at insuring all stored items. Most storage companies require you to have insurance and give you the option to purchase it for around $10 a month. Keep in mind that your belongings away from your home may not be covered by your existing homeowners or renters insurance policy. Review your policy or give your agent a call to find out if you're covered.

      It’s standard for insurance policies to cover furniture, clothes and other personal property that are damaged by:

      • Hail
      • Wind
      • Fire
      • Theft
      • Other insured disasters

      Remember that insurance does not cover water damage from flash flooding. For more information about adequately insuring your storage unit, visit the Insurance Information Institute website.

      You can save money on self storage when you agree to a rental period that’s longer than a month, and it’s common to get your first month free for signing a three-month lease. San Antonio storage unit companies also offer discounts for college students, active-duty military and more.

      How to choose a San Antonio storage company

      In San Antonio, remember three things when searching for a self storage company: indoor or outdoor unit, facility location and if any extra amenities are required.

      Your first decision is the choice between indoor or outdoor storage. Storage units at outdoor facilities are not climate-controlled and are subject to the extreme San Antonio heat. However, outdoor units are easier to load and unload — you can pull your car up directly to your storage like you do your garage at home. This feature makes outdoor units a good option for furniture that is hard to move.

      With an indoor storage facility, the units are climate-controlled and maintain a temperature between 60 and 80 degrees to protect your property from the humid Alamo City environment. Items you should store in a climate-controlled facility are:

      • Photos
      • Appliances and electronics
      • Important documents
      • Antiques and artwork
      • Furniture
      • Instruments

      You also have an added layer of security when you choose to go with an indoor, climate-controlled unit. A climate-controlled unit costs 25 percent more than outdoor storage, so keep this in mind if you are looking for affordability in San Antonio.

      Another option is portable storage. When you select portable storage, a company drops off a container to your door and you fill it. After you fill it, the company picks it back up and transports it to one of its storage facilities. When you’re done storing your stuff, the company brings the container back to you.

      Last of all, consider amenities. Storage companies often have 24-hour video surveillance to keep your belongings safe. Having a manager on-site during business hours also adds an extra layer of security and is available at some facilities. Other amenities include electronic gate access that you can access any time day or night.
