Whether you are packing up one room or an entire house, Fort Knox has the storage unit to accommodate you. From old electronics and archived business files to the family car or boat, our units are available in a range of sizes to keep your items safe and secure no matter their size.
Choosing Your Storage Size
Fort Knox offers small, medium and large storage units to suit all of your storage needs. We make it easy and convenient to pack away items of all sizes, leaving you with more space to enjoy.
Our Small Units
If you’re looking to pack away some unused sporting equipment or clear out those boxes of old files, our small units should be your first choice. Available in 1.5m2 and 3m x 1.5m, our small units are perfect for tidying the clutter in your home or office. Our 1.5m2 units are designed to hold the contents of one room and up to 75 archive boxes. Meanwhile, our 3m x 1.5m units can hold the contents of a one-bedroom apartment and up to 150 archive boxes.
Our Medium Units
Have some old furniture you’d like to get out of the house? Our medium storage units can help take it off your hands. These units are available in 3m x 2m and 3m2 options and are ideal for packing up an apartment or small house. Our 3m x 2m units can store the contents of a 1 to 2-bedroom apartment and up to 200 archive boxes. On the other hand, our 3m2 units can hold the contents of a standard 2-bedroom house or up to 400 archive boxes.
Our Large Units
Looking to store something that is on the larger side? Our large units make it easy to pack away your home or car. Our 4.5m x 3m units can hold the contents of a standard 3-bedroom house or a small car. Alternatively, our whopping 6m x 3m units are the same size as a standard single garage, and are able to store the contents of a standard 4-bedroom house or a large vehicle. This is also a great option if you’re thinking about storing away the family boat over winter!
Packing Like a Pro
Now that you’ve got your perfect storage space sorted, it’s time to ensure you pack your items correctly in order to avoid damage.
It is important to ensure your fridge, washing machine and other white goods are clean and dry before storing away. You can prevent mildew simply by keeping their doors ajar.
Give each item a thorough clean before storing, and avoid using plastic covers on furniture during storage. Although these provide great protection when moving from A to B, plastic covers can actually increase the risk of mould caused by humidity if you leave them on for extended periods of time.
Large or small, Fort Knox can provide you with the storage unit and most cost effective solution for your storage needs.
