About Fortress

Our History & Story

Fortress was founded with a simple belief: that a person should be able to put an item into storage and find it in the same condition whether days, weeks, months or even years later. Founded in Miami in 1983, the first Fortress facility was constructed to withstand hurricanes and extreme heat and humidity. The success of Fortress Miami led to expansions in Boston. Three decades later, Fortress remains the most highly regarded company for specialized storage in the United States.
