Moving to Waukee


Waukee is a relatively smaller part of the Des Moines Metropolitan Area, but it’s growing quickly. Waukee’s population nearly tripled between 2000 and 2010. Serving its own residents as well as West Des Moines, Urbandale and Clive, the Waukee School District is the fastest growing in the state of Iowa. Nearly 60 percent of all households in Waukee are inhabited by a married couple and nearly 45 percent have children younger than 18 years of age.

Growing families can rely on renting self storage in Waukee to help streamline life. Keep seasonal gear out of the house when you’re not using it, store clothing and gear until younger siblings can grow into it and safeguard materials when making renovations or additions to your home.

Weather in Waukee


Waukee’s climate is similar to that of the rest of the Des Moines Metropolitan Area. It’s a humid, continental climate, featuring hot, humid summers and cold, sometimes severely cold, snowy winters.

Think about what you’re storing before selecting your storage unit. Moist air can mildew textiles and paper products or corrode metal. Extremely dry air can crack or warp wooden furniture.

If you are storing any of those delicate/valuable type items, consider a climate-controlled storage unit. By maintaining a constant, moderate temperature, climate-controlled storage units will help safeguard more delicate items from the elements.

Take Care of Business with Waukee Storage


Downtown Waukee features a wide variety of retail, service and hospitality businesses. Savvy business owners and entrepreneurs know self storage can enhance the productivity of their business and improve the bottom line.

Offices can streamline their workspace by moving backup equipment and furnishings and archived records into a climate-controlled storage unit. This allows for an office to maintain peak efficiency and can even allow for expansion without having to pay to grow its footprint.

Retail businesses can enhance merchandising by keeping the sales floor free of surplus or offseason inventory. Store owners can even use their storage unit to save money by purchasing seasonal merchandise in the offseason, when it’s likely less expensive or by purchasing in bulk at a lower price point. Each of these can increase the profit margin on merchandise without raising the price, turning the cost of renting storage space into an actual investment.

Average Cost of Storage in Waukee


Self storage space in Waukee rents out, on average, at $.82 per square foot per month. The most commonly rented storage space is a non-climate controlled 10’x10’ unit, at an average cost of $100.33 per month.

The rate for a storage unit can vary due to a number of factors, including scarcity, proximity to loading docks or elevators or being on a ground floor as opposed to an upper floor. Storage facilities with more sophisticated security programs will often rent out space at slightly higher rates. Climate-controlled storage units typically cost more than regular storage units.
