Move Out Policy

Fort Knox Mini-Storage leases are on a month to month basis, always ending on the last day of the month.   A 10-day written notice is required prior to move out.  A full month’s rent will be charged to the account and become due and payable on the 1st, if written notice is not received in the office 10 days prior to the 1st of the month.  No notice given may result in an additional month’s rent being charged to your account.  Notice dates will take effect the date they are received in the office by Fort Knox Mini Storage staff or the date you receive your confirmation email.  Both written notices and those scheduled online must be submitted to the office prior to the close of business.  If a notice is placed in the drop box or emailed on a Sunday, holiday, or after scheduled business hours the notice date will take effect on the next business day. 

All written notices must include the following information: 

  • Printed Names of All Lessees
  • Unit #
  • Move Out Date
  • Signature of all Lessees

Easy to fill out notice to vacate forms are available at the management office and can be emailed to you at your request.

Please Note:  Unused days in any given month will not be prorated or reimbursed should you choose to move out prior to the last day of the month or do not give sufficient notice prior to month end.

How to Schedule Your Move Out

To schedule a move out you can either send in a 10-day written notice or schedule your move out online. If you schedule your move out online that will be considered your written notice. Once you schedule it you will receive an email letting you know your request has been received. Once the manager reviews and approves the move out request you will receive another email with confirmation your move out has been scheduled and any necessary details regarding your account and/or move out date selected.


      To schedule online:  Log into your account and click on Request next to Move out, then enter the move out date.


Change your mind?

Don’t worry!  You may cancel or change your move out date if your plans change and you need to rent the storage unit longer.

  • If you scheduled your move out online, you will need to go back online to your account and cancel it.  Or you may send in a written notice to the site office notifying them you wish to change or cancel your move out.       
  • If you turned in a written notice to the office you will need to send in a written notice to cancel it.  An email will suffice for a cancellation. 

Empty Your Storage Unit

Remove all of your items, clean up spills (if any), and sweep the unit out in order to avoid additional fees, costs, and/or fines.  Items left behind and/or any damages to the storage unit/space will result in additional fees applied to your account. The unit should be left in the same clean condition as you received it. 

  • The dumpster is for management use only. With the prior approval from the resident manager, the disposal of a few small items may be allowed for a fee.    
  • A minimum $25 fee and the rate for an extra dumpster pick up will be charged to the account when the dumpster is used without prior approval.       


Should you have items that you no longer want or have use for, consider donating to charity. Some charities such as purple heart will come, pick it up and take it away for you…it doesn’t get much easier than that!

Remove Your Lock

The lock on your unit belongs to you, don’t forget to take it with you!!  If a scheduled move out date has passed and a lock remains on the unit, we must assume that the unit is still occupied even if you have removed your items; which may result in being charged for another full month’s rent.

·      A fee will be charged for all locks that have to be cut off by Fort Knox Mini Storage in order to access the unit.

  • $25.00 fee for standard locks
  • $50.00 fee for discus style or large locks
