Military Storage

Fortress-Secure Mini-Storage Supports Troops

We are so proud of the men and women who serve in all branches of the military.  Each branch serves a specific role in protecting the freedom of all citizens, so we thank you for your service. There is a special place in our hearts for those that serve as airmen at Vandenberg Air Force Base.  Each launch produces massive soundwaves that reverberate through the entire Santa Maria Valley. The excitement of a launch never gets old!

Let us help make your service to our country just a little easier by providing:

Military Discounts

Please call our manager and ask if there are any active duty military discounts being offered.

Drive-Up Storage Units with Roll-Up Doors

Our facilities are equipped with drive-up accessible roll-up doors in every single storage unit. No more lugging your belongings down long hallways or up stairs or elevators, simply pull up, unload, and you’re good to go!

On-Site Management

We understand how stressful moving can be, so we have great people to help you along the way. From the moment you first contact us, real managers are ready and willing to assist your every need. They can help you choose the right sized unit, give self-storage tips, and even find ways to save you money.

Individual Storage Unit Burglar Alarms

Each storage space has its own burglar alarm, and you get your own individual code. If someone tries to access your storage space without entering in your individual code, the alarms will sound. No one can access your storage space without this code. This is just another great feature to help ensure that your items remain right where you left them. Your possessions are safe and sound!

In-Unit Fire Alarms

Fortress-Secure Mini-Storage offers a state-of-the-art fire alarm system called Protectowire Linear Heat Detection. The system automatically calls the fire department and alerts them to the exact location of the fire. We are proud to have this system in place, offering you the peace of mind you deserve.

Electronic Security Gate

When you rent a storage space you will be provided with an individual burglar alarm code that also doubles as your individual gate access code. Simply type your code into the gate control panel. The gate will automatically open, and your burglar alarm will deactivate. For your convenience, the gates are open 365 days a year so you can access your unit whenever you need it! 

This means that you can access your belongings on holidays and after the business office closes (see gate hours listed on the facility page).

24-Hour Recorded Cameras

Although our managers keep a very close watch on things, it is helpful to have several extra sets of eyes. High-quality surveillance systems are in place so your military self-storage is monitored 24/7 with digital video recorders. These security systems produce clear images to ensure the security of your stored property and give you extra peace of mind.

Standby Backup Generator

Our standby backup generator is capable of powering our entire facility so you’ll never be locked out of our facility. All lights and systems will remain on during a power outage, giving our facility an extra layer of security. Customers won’t be denied access or locked behind our gate if the power goes out. 

Extra Tall 10 Ft Ceilings

Our storage spaces have up to 10 foot high ceilings that give our storage spaces 25% more volume than many of our competitors. Couches and mattresses can be placed on their ends, and lighter boxes can be stacked on top of them in order to utilize the space. Many of our customers have saved hundreds of dollars by taking advantage of our extra high ceilings. We also recommend using shelves to maximize space.

Solar Powered Storage Facility

We take advantage of the clean energy from the sun at Fortress-Secure Mini-Storage. With self-storage in Santa Maria, the sun is plentiful and almost all of our electricity usage is powered in this environmentally-friendly way!

Great LED Lighting

Fortress-Secure Mini-Storage has extensive lighting to help aid you during evening hours and add yet another level of security. LED lighting is provided in the drive aisles, and we even have lights in all our storage spaces that are 10’ by 15’ and larger.

Extra-High, Extra Wide Doors

Our 10' by 10' and larger storage spaces have up to 8’ high by 8’8” wide roll-up doors. Large roll-up doors make it easier to access your vehicle and get your belongings in and out of your storage unit.

Extra Wide Aisles

Extra-wide aisles are wonderful because they allow customers to park in front of their storage spaces and still allow room for other customers to simply drive around them. Also, the main aisles at our facilities can accommodate the largest moving trucks allowed on California’s highways.

Moving Truck Rentals

For your convenience, Fortress-Secure Mini-Storage in Santa Maria is an authorized U-Haul Neighborhood Dealer. We make the truck rental process easy and convenient. Rent directly from us and avoid the hassle of going through somebody separate for truck rentals.

Free Use of Hand Trucks

If you're like most people, you're short on helping hands when it comes time to move. Feel free to use our hand trucks to help you move your belongings. You can even make arrangements with the manager to take it off the facility grounds.

Delivery Acceptance

Upon request, we will gladly accept most types of deliveries. Please see the manager for more details. This is a popular option for military self-storage as it may be easier to ship some of your belongings!

Boxes and Moving Supplies

We carry a wide assortment of packing and moving supplies at very competitive prices. From bubble wrap to large moving boxes, we have it all. If there is a packing supply product that we don’t have in stock, we can order it for you. Our manager can help you determine the items you will need, so please stop by anytime during office hours.
