What Is The Busy Season For Self Storage Facilities In West Palm Beach?

Posted on: August 15, 2019 | by: Lighthouse Self Storage October 29, 2019

Everything has a season. Whether we’re talking about a season for certain foods, taking vacations, or noticing temperature changes, everything has a season. Self-storage facilities in West Palm Beach, Florida, are no different. A busy season in the self-storage industry doesn’t just mean when units aren’t available. Busy seasons also refer to times when more people are loading and unloading into their units and causing congestion.

Crazy Tuesday

You’ve heard of big days like Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but did you know there is also a day called Crazy Tuesday? Crazy Tuesday refers to the first Tuesday after Memorial Day. This tends to be one of the busiest days of the year for both storage facilities and moving companies. These businesses receive more calls, reservations, and in-store customers than any other day of the year.

Crazy Tuesday is just the start of one of the busiest seasons for storage facilities. Summer seems to be when most people decide to move. As you can imagine, using a storage unit can help alleviate some of the stress involved with moving. While some people only use the storage units as a short-term moving solution, others see utilizing a storage unit as a way to downsize and declutter without necessarily having to get rid of anything.

Dorm Life

While West Palm Beach isn’t necessarily considered a “college town,” it does have a few schools where students call home. Many students, whether they live in dorms or local apartments, go back or travel during their summer breaks. When dorms empty, storage West Palm Beach facilities fill up.

Move out and move-in days are a secondary busy season for self-storage units. Students often don’t want to haul their stuff back home for the summer, so they rent units for the summer. If you’ve ever lived near campus, you know that move in and move out days are some of the most congested traffic days of the year. These days also cause storage unit congestions as students are loading or unloading their belongings.

Spring Cleaning

While not exactly the busiest time of the year, the current trend to declutter and downsize means storage units see a little boost during the spring cleaning season. Many people are hesitant to get rid of their stuff completely, so they place it in a storage unit intending to sort through it later.


With people moving in and out of their units, it can be a bit crazy. If you are looking for a storage unit in West Palm Beach during the summer, you may find many units are already spoken for or are only available for a short time. Your best bet is to make a reservation in advance. It might even behoove you to book your unit a little early. Booking early might mean paying a little more, but it also ensures that you actually have your needed space when the time comes. To get the best deals and highest availability, consider getting your storage unit during the off-season or when things aren’t as hectic around town.
