What not to store

What not to store

Ensuring that you don’t store illegal or inappropriate items will save you hassle and money.

  • Dangerous goods
    Generally speaking items that are considered dangerous will not be permitted in your storage unit. Check with your Fort Knox self storage team if in doubt, however as a quick guide you cannot store combustible, flammable, hazardous or toxic materials such as petrol, compressed gasses, toxic or biological waste, acid, corrosives, fertilizers, paint, cleaners, asbestos, fireworks, explosives, weapons or ammunition.

    • Perishable food and animal products
      While canned foods can be stored in Fort Knox storage units, perishable food products such as cereals, produce or meats are not allowed. These may rot or attract rodents and other pests. And of course your self storage neighbours will not appreciate the smell!

  • Plants and animals
    Plants and animals – alive or dead – cannot be stored. We understand that sometimes your pets can be a great deal of work and a source of frustration as well as joy, however your Fort Knox self storage unit is not the place for them.

    • Stolen or illegal goods and material
      Any stolen items or goods that are illegal cannot be stored at your Fort Knox self storage unit. At Fort Knox we strive to keep your valuables safe and secure, and to protect your privacy – but please keep it legal.
