Why Choose Fortress Self Storage?

All storage facilities are not equal, yet they all cost about the same. Fortress Self Storage of Bakersfield takes pride in setting the standard in personal, as well as business storage. But are you getting your money's worth? What are the differences in features from one facility to another? Below are the reasons that Fortress is the best storage facility for your money.


Computerized Gate Access

Fortress Self Storage uses state of the art security equipment that controls access into and out of the property. Once a customer is signed up for a storage unit, they will choose a unique code that will grant access to and from our facility. Our state of the art, keypad entry system is integrated through our digital security system and allows authorized customers through the security gate.

Door Alarms

Every storage unit at Fortress Self Storage is equipped with an individual door alarm that is disarmed and armed by the renter's PIN number as they enter and leave through the main gate. The individual unit door alarm also provides an added deterrent.

An added benefit of this computerized system is that it tracks and records all door activity. These records can be helpful if you share your unit with another family member or employee -- each person authorized to access your unit can have their own code.

Cameras and Digital Recording

The more cameras a self storage site has, the fewer blind spots there will be and the greater deterrent the system will provide. Fortress has 22 cameras recording digitally, 24 hours a day with DVR storage of 60+ days. Our competitors have as few as one camera. At Fortress, cameras are installed on each driveway, entry and exit gate, and at various perimeter points. At any time during the 60+ day period, images from our video archive can be printed or saved to disk for future reference. We are constantly evaluating and updating, as needed, the camera and DVR system for our site. Keeping an eye on cutting edge security technology and investing to protect your property is a top priority at Fortress.

Resident Manager

Having a manager in residence is another deterrent for criminal activity. But sometimes the manager may need to be out of town during their time off, which is why Fortress provides two apartments: one for our resident manager and one for the relief manager. By giving our relief manager a place to stay onsite, it increases the likelihood of someone being around to notice any criminal activity.

At Fortress Self Storage, we strive to maintain our modern facility as the cleanest in Bakersfield to make you comfortable and to preserve your belongings.

Climate Control

Climate Controlled Units

Each of Fortress' climate controlled buildings has two separate air conditioners -- one unit to keep the facility below 78 degrees at all times, and the other as a backup in case of problems with the first. Climate control is vital for safely storing your property as any variation from the environment which it has become accustomed, that of your home or office, can cause changes to it. This is especially true with natural items, such as wood or fiber products, and modern electronics. To learn more, please visit our "What You Should Know Before You Store" page.

Quality Construction

Standing-Seam Roofing

While the more expensive choice for roofing for a storage facility, Fortress Self Storage uses standing-seam, metal roof construction, which is the best option for protecting our customer's possessions. Unlike mopped tar or ribbed metal, there are no fasteners penetrating the standing-seam roof, which would allow water leakage as temperature changes cause expansion and contraction in the material. Instead, screws are attached away from the extra deep channels that carry water off the roof. Overall, water leaks are unheard of with the standing-seam roofing that covers our facilities at Fortress.

Building Construction

Fortress Self Storage uses metal for building construction. It is the best choice for storage facilities as it is fire resistant and does not attract termites or insects.
