Today’s Mapshot is a zoomed-in shot of that zoomed-out city, Atlanta, Georgia. We decided to look at XXL, 10×20 units today. The ATL itself is already so widespread that including suburbs like Roswell and Snellville would make our map look little different from this week’s Storage Spotlight. So we’ve decided to cut out many of the satellite cities that ring Atlanta–not that this should make too much of a difference, as we’ve already seen that many of these locations have the same or higher prices than Atlanta itself.
So what can we discover from today’s Mapshot? Well, it comes as no surprise that the closer to the city’s core the higher the prices, with rates around central Atlanta nearing $300. Some notable exceptions near the Downtown area are Metro Self Storage- Bankhead ($181) and Champion- North-West Atlanta ($184). But to really find better prices, you’re got to head out to neighborhoods like Mableton, Smyrna, Sandy Springs, North Druid Hills, Belvedere Park, and Riverdale. As we can see, most storage facilities around Atlanta are clustered to the north and south of the city, with a few in the east. The western side of the city is almost entirely absent of facilities.
The average price of an XXL 10×20 storage unit in Atlanta is $163.13. The Deal of the Day is half of that–just $82 at Uncle Bob’s Self Storage- Austell, located out past Mableton. Other good deals can be found at SmartStop- Roswell Rd. up north in Sandy Springs, and down south in Riverdale at SecurCare Self-Storage-Morrow ($97) and Uncle Bob’s Self Storage-Morrow ($92).
