When you move in you will be asked about insurance.

Do I need insurance?

If it’s worth storing, it’s worth insuring. Even with our high level of safety and security, accidents and natural disasters can occur. Fort Knox Self Storage has insurance on our facilities, this does not include your goods. Anything that you put into storage is your sole responsibility. Would you leave your precious goods uninsured in your home?

How much will it cost?

It’s really cheap at $2.50 per month for the minimum $5000 worth of cover and $0.50 per $1000 of cover above that. It is very affordable for the peace of mind you will have, knowing that if anything does go wrong you are covered financially. For a mere $12.50 per month you can cover $25000 worth of your belongings. That’s less than the cost of one lunch.

Who am I covered by?

The insurance is covered by AON/ QBE Insurance (Australia) Limited. Your goods are covered by a specialist storage unit policy. The policy covers your goods against loss or damage occurring from events such as fire, earthquake, explosion, water damage, theft etc. Your belongings are covered whilst they are securely locked in your storage unit.

Can I cover everything?

Your storage insurance covers household items, clothing, furniture, electrical goods, computers, camping equipment, musical instruments, etc. It does not cover cars, boats motorbikes and caravans, these are usually covered by motor insurers. Some items such as fur coats, cash, paint and tobacco cannot be covered by storage insurance.

Insurance just for storage

Will my home contents insurance cover that?

Your home contents insurance only covers items at your address. Once your belongings are placed into storage they are no longer covered.

How much insurance will I need?

The amount of insurance you get should cover the cost of replacing your items. Work out the cost to replace each item and add them together.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

It is a good idea to take clear and detailed photos of your items before you put them into storage. It may make it easier if you need to claim.

Ranked Melbourne’s #1 storage provider by our happy customers.

The ladies who work there are the most polite, respectful and knowledgeable people. The place is very convenient and close from Southern Cross Station. Prices per month cost half the price per week for a locker at southern cross half that size.. I recommend this place to anyone 100%

I have been dealing with the Spencer Street crew for 12 years now. My latest interaction was just like the first - friendly, efficient and more. Always here to help, this operation is head and shoulders above any "customer interaction" I've experienced. Simply splendid.

The storage facility was just the perfect solution for me. The size was just enough and its location in town was perfect and the staff was more than helpful in every situation I need them to be. I found the facility clean and comfortable and having an access code for extended access hours was also just perfect. Thanks a bunch Fort Knox

Worth every star. The staff were amazing and made it so easy to organise a storage unit, they couldn't have been more helpful. We stored some items several years ago and felt it was very secure and easy to access so I didn't hesitate to use Fort Knox again. Many thanks for all your assistance.

Wanted to share my happiness regarding my recent experience at Fort Knox. Daven and Jessica were a joy to be around and made the process smooth, easy to understand and fun, what a great team! Putting my stuff in storage I was concerned about the cost but the team ensured I got a great deal. Such personal service is unexpected so this experience was a pleasant surprise and I’d be happy to return!

We got to the place and felt the service was exceptional from the start, Daven showed us excellent service showed us all the possible units to find the one suiting our needs the best. As we signed the papers we got offered a free drink and got told about the opportunity to rent a van for free to move our stuff. Can definitely recommend to use this facility and a special thank to Daven to the service he provided us! I would use nothing but Fort Knox next time I need to move.

Fantastic storage place! They've got a range of different sized storage units and they will always help you choose just the right size so you won't go over and pay for a larger size you don't really need. Staff are very friendly and helpful, instructions are clear as day. After the initial check in, you can access your unit at any time, and the check out process was smooth and easy as well. Rental time is very flexible and price is very friendly! You can even borrow their van to move your stuff. Can't recommend this place enough, if you need a storage place then this is it!

Quick and easy set up, hassle-free and no hanky pankies. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Would recommend to others. They ran out of storage space that I reserved so they gave me an upgraded one for the same price.

I have been communicating with Fort Knox Self Storage, West Melbourne over the past four months. During this time I have made a number of changes to our request. I have found all the staff to be extremely knowledgable, supportive of my changes and very friendly. The facilities are well maintained and resources like the complimentary van for a day (petrol not included) as well as trolleys to move multiple boxes are greatly appreciated.

As well as great storage options this business has everything you'll need to store your stuff easily, for example: trolleys, tape, boxes, mattress protectors, and more! Thanks so much for your kindness and your great customer service, it was a great experience in our busy world.

I’m not going to bore everyone with the long story so I will try and shorten it. And I’m sure there are plenty of people are there going through some tough time’s right now. My partner and I needed a storage locker for what we thought would be for 4 months. With a deal buy one get one free, we paid for two months. Then suddenly, less than a week after disconnecting all utilities and moving 3.5 hours away, we needed to return. It was a double move two weekends in a row. The stress and extra money being wasted paying disconnecting and reconnecting fees was so much. We didn’t think we could get a refund for the locker. My partner was there with removalist, because we were so stressed and tired we couldn’t do it ourselves again. While I was setting up some other things. My partner spoke to a Laura, who he mentioned was an absolute gem to deal with. So incredibly helpful. And I know all my interactions were so great. Well she had organised with the manager to get 1 of our 2 paid months refunded. And it went through so easily. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. In troubling times like these, it’s the community sticking together that get us through. I really felt like the whole team really were there for us. I know if I ever need a storage locker again, or if a friend needs a suggestion, I will be going right to Fort Knox West Melbourne.
