Archiving with Managed Storage

Wednesday, February 21, 2018

In the last few years, more and more people have turned to storage units to provide solutions to common problems facing offices and businesses. Desk space, stock or inventory space and most common of all, archive storage space.

Given the nature of paper files, with their size and weight, it doesn’t take long for them to take over an office. Fortunately, there is a solution out there. Storing such items in units has become commonplace for this issue, meaning you can reclaim valuable office space back for your operations and staff.

Declutter and inventory

Before you begin, work through your records, archives and files to find out whether you need to keep any close to you in your office. Likewise, there may be files that you have forgotten about, still sat there taking up space that you can now throw away.
The best idea before taking the remaining files to a storage facility will be to create an inventory. This will help you in the future, should you need to quickly relocate a particular file.


One of the biggest concerns for our customers is the security of our units. When you consider the nature of many legal and confidential files, it’s not surprising. To provide our customers with peace of mind, we offer 24/7 CCTV coverage and every building on every site that houses units is manned during working hours and are alarmed outside of working hours.


All our units are accessible 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Our customers can come and go, visiting their unit as often as they like. The units come in various sizes, meaning we can cater exactly to your needs. To gain an idea of the storage you require, visit our size guide here; It will show you what you can fit in all our different sized units via illustrations and a video.

Something unique we also offer is our drive-up storage service, similar to a regular garage. You can drive right up to these units, taking away the effort of carrying items for a long distance.


A new service we are carrying out is shredding. This allows customers to archive their confidential files with us and then when they need to, they can shred them all within the same facility.
