Student Self-Storage Near Santa Maria

Fortress Secure Mini-Storage is perfect for students who don’t have room in their living quarters for all of their belongings. Self-storage won’t break your bank, and you can store anything from clothing to decor to mattresses and more! Student self-storage has never been easier for those attending Santa Barbara Business College, Allan Hancock College, or Cuesta College. Here are just a few of the amenities we offer for the best storage experience possible:

Tech-Friendly Self Storage

At Fortress Secure Mini Storage we understand how integral technology is with student life and living. Which is one reason why we provide a paperless self-storage experience so you can take care of things easily, and keep moving in your busy schedule.

Online Storage Rental and Bill Pay

 If you are ever in a housing bind as a student, whether it's finding a new place quickly, or you are already between places, we want to provide the storage space you need for the housing emergencies of student life. We also know that most college living spaces don't actually have a lot of space which is why self-storage is a great option. That's why we have online self-storage rental so you have an option when you're in a bind. 

Our online bill pay makes it easy for you to pay your bill anytime, anywhere so you can focus on your studies. We enrich your storage experience so you can enrich your knowledge and life and school. 

Storage Unit Fire Safety

Fortress-Secure Mini-Storage uses a special system called Protectowire Linear Heat Detection. Each unit has its own sprinklers and the fire department is immediately contacted if a fire starts. Our main priority is keeping your belongings safe - so we offer top-notch protection. 

Secure Storage Facilities

Our facilities are fully fenced to offer an added layer of protection. Your burglar alarm code doubles as your entry-gate code. Our gates operate 365 days a year for your convenience, so you can access your unit at any time (and no one else can). We also offer 24-hour recorded cameras to help our on-site staff keep an eye on things. 

Security Systems in Each Unit

Each unit has its own burglar alarm, and each person has an individual access code to get in. If someone tries to get in who shouldn’t, the alarms will sound and they’ll go running. This is how we ensure that your belongings are safe in our hands.

Green Power

We utilize solar power to power almost all, if not all, of our facility. We love being green!

Power Outage? No Problem

Our standby backup generator is always ready in case of a power outage. Customers won’t be denied access or locked behind our gate if the power goes out. Our generator can power our entire facility - including lights and security systems. 

We Provide The Extra Space You Need With Tall Ceilings & Wide Aisles

With our 10 foot tall ceilings, you have 25% more volume to store your stuff. Our doors are over 8’ x 8’, and our aisles are wide enough to accommodate the largest moving vehicles allowed on California Highways. Student self-storage often means storing furniture, and it’s easier than ever with Fortress Secure Storage. 

Drive-Up Storage Units with Roll-Up Doors

Each of our storage units has a drive-up accessible, roll-up door, meaning you won’t have to carry your boxes through narrow hallways. Simply drive up, roll up, and unload your possessions. It’s incredibly convenient and fast to help out students living busy lives.

Moving Truck Rentals

We are an authorized U-Haul dealer, so you can rent a moving truck or trailer directly from us instead of bouncing around to find what you need.

Moving Supplies and Equipment

Stop by any time during office hours and grab the moving supplies that you need. We offer a wide variety of materials and if we don’t have what you need, we’d be more than happy to order it for you.

Free Dollies

Self-storage is hard enough on its own, so we offer the free use of our dollies and hand trucks for your convenience. You can even speak with a manager to take them off of the grounds.  

Helpful Onsite Staff

We love being able to give a more personalized self-storage experience. Whether it’s helping you decide on the size of your storage unit or just giving some self-storage tips, our resident managers are happy to assist. 

Deliver to Us

Upon request, we will gladly accept most types of deliveries. Please see the manager for more details.
