Chula Vista storage rental rates

Chula Vista, California is indeed quite the place. For decades, the city was merely viewed as a small part of the San Diego metro area, however it’s certainly grown to become much more than that. With a population of 275,000 residents (and a density of over 5,000 people per square mile), Chula Vista is actually the second largest city in San Diego County (fourteenth largest in the state of California). On a more personal level, Chula Vista was also recently named as the 22nd most romantic city in the country. Great news indeed. 

Superlatives aside, Chula Vista also has a wide selection of storage options for those area residents seeking some additional space to rent. Just as wide is the various storage rental prices in Chula Vista.

Storage options in Chula Vista aren’t limited merely to self-storage companies though.  Chula Vista residents in need of storage can also turn to portable storage providers as an option.  In doing so, they’ll be able to have the storage unit delivered directly to their Chula Vista home or business. They’ll then be able to pack the unit on their own schedule before having it picked up for storing within the company’s storage facility.  Some portable storage companies servicing Chula Vista include PODS and Big Box Storage. While the rates available from PODS are listed above, Big Box Storage offers a monthly rental rate of $74 per “Big Box” (each one measuring 8’ x 5’). Customers in need of additional space can always have multiple “Big Boxes” delivered. The company’s rate is also backed by a 110% low price guarantee. For storage renters seeking to store for a least three months with Big Box Storage, the company also waives its $99 initial delivery fee throughout Chula Vista (and the majority of San Diego County). This includes the delivery of the empty Big Box as well as the return to pick it up once it’s been loaded.

Whether selecting from self-storage or portable storage, as you can see, rental rates will certainly vary across Chula Vista. As addressed in a previous blog post, there are several factors that generally determine price. Obviously, the size of the unit is one of the more defining factors (as you can see above). Sizes typically vary from under 10 sq. ft. to literally hundreds (or even thousands) of square feet. Beyond size, some of the additional factors include:

Location – Where the customer is looking to store in Chula Vista can certainly impact the monthly rental rate and other fees. Very generally speaking, with exceptions for various promotions being offered at different storage facilities, the rates tend to be slightly higher in the Eastlake area. Additionally, they tend to decrease slightly as one gets closer to the U.S./Mexico border. 

Climate Control – Units that offer climate control tend to be more expensive. Although the coastal regions of San Diego County tend to be slightly cooler than the interior desert regions (more specifically, there’s even a notable difference between Eastlake and the coast), the customer will need to decide if this is a requirement for them. The cost for this additional feature will also vary depending upon the company.

Security – It’s very important that the storage facility provide security for their customer belongings. Some typical security measures might include motion sensors, on-site staffing, perimeter alarms, and gates on the exterior of the property. Customers might also wish to inquire with different companies in Chula Vista about any prior security breaches at their facility. 

In summary Chula Vista residents should do their homework when selecting a storage company. Beyond the rental rate, other possible fees such as administration fees (sometimes exceeding $20), “move-in” fees, and processing fees should also be considered. As noted above, there is certainly a wide range of providers to choose from (each with differing rental rates). That being said, storage rental rates in Chula Vista are generally quite reasonable as compared to other parts of the country.
