Our History & Story

Museum Quality Storage® & Services

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 and New York City. Three decades later, Fortress remains the most highly regarded company for specialized storage in the United States.

Our facilities provide the highest quality storage available through their design, advanced systems, and on-going maintenance. It is, however, the strength of our employees and their collective years of service within the company that makes the biggest difference for our clients. Still owned and managed by a founder, Fortress’s long-term employment of our art handlers, movers and managers means an unrivaled institutional expertise. This means familiar faces to our clients, consistent management and well-trained employees that are adept at problem solving and client service.

Fortress provides Museum Quality Storage® and has long had the highest possible rating from insurance companies for the quality of our storage. Our employees offer the highest quality care and consideration for clients and their possessions. The art of storing and handling your valuable possessions takes more than just experience; it requires the expertise and attention you deserve, from the most trusted name in the industry.
