Using Self-Storage in Boston, MA

With so many people on the move, downsizing, or simply decluttering, self storage is in high demand. Fortunately, self storage facilities are widely available throughout Boston and surrounding neighborhoods. But with so many options, narrowing down to the right storage space for you can be difficult.

Finding Storage Units in Boston

Most storage units are located in facilities dedicated to self storage and have features like drive-up access that makes storing large furniture and appliances easy. You can back a moving truck right up to your storage unit to easily unload heavy items. If you just need to store boxes or small furniture, there are also storage facilities located in multi-level buildings that have elevators to move items into units. You'll want to take this into consideration when you're picking a facility.

Cost of Storage Units in Boston

In Boston the average storage unit costs about $175.65 per month, but can range from $30 for small units and up to over $276.01 per month for larger 10x10 storage units. Unit size is the biggest factor in monthly rent, but facility amenities like climate controlled units, 24-hour access and drive-up access can increase the cost as well. Many facilities in less high-demand areas do offer discounts, like the first month free, so you can save money by choosing a self storage facility that's a little further away.

Picking the Right Size Storage Unit in Boston

Since the cost of storage units increase with size, you'll want to pick the smallest unit possible. Typically storage unit sizes range from a small 5x5 storage unit up to large 10x15 and 10x20 storage units. If you're storing small furniture and boxes, a 5x5 storage unit is probably sufficient, but a 10x10 unit is generally the most popular. This is about the size of a one-car garage and can fit larger furniture, large appliances like refrigerators, and many boxes.

Climate Controlled Storage in Boston

Boston weather fluctuates significantly throughout the year, with temperatures well below freezing in winter to hot and humid in the summer. Because of this, looking for climate controlled storage units is highly recommended. These units are kept at a consistent temperature and humidity level to protect sensitive items like antiques, furniture, electronics and collectibles. If you plan on storing items at risk of damage from humidity and freezing temperatures, keep this amenity in mind.
