Here at Fort Knox we pride ourselves on our state of the art facilities with convenient access and “A grade security”. We tailor our services to our individual clients needs and aim to deliver a complete package for each client’s circumstances. Our Vermont facility is certainly a first-class building with secure storage units, easy access and modern décor. And although we might be a little bit biased we are absolutely thrilled to be acknowledged by a panel of independent judges and industry experts as being awarded the facility of the year.

Fort Knox Vermont opened in July 2008 and is located in the south east corridor of Melbourne. Well recognised by its grand stature on the corner of Burwood Hwy and Morack road, our location is ideally positioned just 1.2 kilometres from Eastlink making it extremely accessible for all commuters.

Prominently positioned on a large intersection, our facility is well branded with striking signage that internally illuminates at night. Our sweeping ‘water free’ gardens are planted with a range of shrubs and trees which have been carefully selected to withstand the harsh Melbourne climate, whilst providing greenery all year round.

Offering a wide range of benefits to our storage clients, including individual door alarms, back to base CCTV monitoring, “A” grade security response, movement sensors, smoke sensors that are fire brigade direct, pin access and our unique fortress locking system for additional protection against forcible entry, we pride ourselves on our elite security.
