Okay. So you've not used a storage supplier before? Don't worry, we're here to guide you through every step of the way...
Where to Begin…
We understand you're busy and these things can often be put on the back burner. Fortunately , you have come to the right place.
First, we need to understand how many files you have for storage, we usually get around four or five lever arch files into a storage box. This should give you an idea of approximately how many boxes you are likely to need.
We do take existing boxes into storage, but we prefer you to use our own as they are tailor made for our racking system and come with a lifetime quality guarantee. Once you've counted up, let us know how many boxes you'll need and we will deliver our flatpacks directly to you.
Next, we need to decide which storage system would work best for you...
You could index your records by box. We'll provide you with our listing templates, which are then uploaded onto our records management software and you simply recall the box when you need any of the content. If even this sounds too time intensive, we can complete the indexing for you, removing the burden entirely.
If you need a bit more detail about each individual file, you could opt for our File Management System. This is where we capture more data about the individual files contained in a box. You can then request each individual file, as opposed to the whole box. This is a service which is a popular choice for accountants, solicitors and the healthcare sector.
We can't overstate how important this part of the process is, it ultimately decides how quickly we can pinpoint and locate your files when you need them.
Once all of your files have been boxed, labelled and listed we'll come and collect them from you and place them into storage at our secure storage facility.
Your files are securely in storage, but what happens when you want them back?
You will have access to our delivery & collection services, no matter when you need them, rest assured they will be with you. Your files delivered, directly to your desk
“I need them tomorrow”
Our next day delivery service will not only drop the box off to you but bring it directly to your desk.
“I need my files back today!”
Not a problem, we will deliver your documents to you when need them. Use our same day delivery service to ensure your files are delivered the very same day.
“It’s an EMERGENCY”
Don’t panic, fortunately you have access to our urgent two hour delivery service. Your vital documents will arrive safely within two hours and on many occasions much less.
How can I request my files back?
You can call, email or use our online portal to request files, boxes or even items such as shredding bags and flat pack boxes. Rest easy, your documents are safe and can be delivered back to you when you need them.
