Self storage facilities are not all comparable, and there is no linear correlation between price and quality. The number of options can be mind-boggling. For example, there are a multitude of different types of self-storage in Santa Barbara (or within a ten minute drive of that particular suburb of Santa Barbara). There are self-storage facilities for boats, cars, and individual units for whatever the renter of the unit wants to put in it. There are also facilities that offer all of the above.
