Cost effective archive storage of business critical documents

Our professional archive storage management staff are able to assist you with planning the storage, archiving and management of your records at our UK box and document storage centre. Critical documents, such as accounting records, statutory company records, client files, legal documents and files and healthcare records, is a modern necessity but it need not be a modern headache.

How does it work?

A comprehensive catalogue is maintained for your files storage, registering all activity (views) of stored documents and boxes and if required planning for the eventual destruction of documents when they are definitely no longer required.

Archive storage of your documents off site – does not mean that they are inaccessible – in fact due to our specialist recording and coding processes accessing the right document at the moment you need it is both possible and care free.

At the end of the useful life of your document, destruction can be arranged on or off site.
Certificates of destruction are always issued to assist with your own record keeping and legal compliance.

There are many differing but sensible reasons that companies use our archiving facilities:

  • Secure space at far less cost than sq foot business rental
  • Specialist librarian style archiving and state of the art bar coded tracking
  • Risk management and disaster planning strategies to safeguard their enterprise
  • Quiet, private and comfortable facilities to work with and review large quantities of documents

We securely and completely destroy documents, to save costs and protect confidentiality. We certify the destruction of each box. We can provide secure containers and collect the documents from your premises. This facility is open to clients who do not use our full archive storage services

We work with you to define a records retention schedule, so that we both meet your legal and business requirements for retention, and minimise your storage costs. As soon as a box is no longer required we securely destroy it, and give you a certificate confirming the destruction.
