Document Storage for any purpose
For businesses, self storage can be a useful way to re-organise your office space.
Keep important but older documents ready to hand
Often, many files aren’t needed for daily office-work but still need keeping. This could be for legal reasons or as hard-copies of company records. Long term self storage can be a means to keep older documents out of the way, but accessible at a moment’s notice.
Storage for a range of files
Archive storage is suitable for any kind of file. This includes legal documents, tax records, and other business documents. Document storage facilities will keep them safe and organised.
Needing storage for more than papers? We also offer information on business storage.
It’s not only offices that need storage solutions. Archive storage is also for personal purposes. There are many things from home that you may want to use storage for.
Many of us have stockpiles of personal documents. These can be anything from health records and legal documents to sentimental items. Self storage can be a way to free up space whilst keeping your documents safe and easy to access.
Archive storage doesn’t always mean paperwork. Childhood drawings and work hold a special place in our hearts. Though their time on the fridge may be up, we sometimes can’t bear to part with them. Or it could be you collect issues of a magazine, or newspaper clippings and need somewhere safe to keep them.
Whatever your precious items are, self storage will keep them safe and free from damage.
If you need to store household items as well as documents, You could store both in one unit. By taking a larger unit you can separate the space into archive space and an area for other home items. Have a look at our personal storage page for more information.
Why Archive Storage?

Whether in an office or at home, mounting paperwork can cause stress and take up room. Archive storage keeps excess documents confined to one unit in secure facilities.

Tips for storing boxes and documents
Use a system
Having a system makes it easy and quick to locate any document you need. Organising beforehand means time saved in the future.
Once you’ve decided on a system, adding labels to your boxes will help you navigate your files easier.
It can be tempting to try and fit as many documents as possible into one box. But doing so can make boxes heavy and hard to sort through. Packing your boxes with a fair amount of space between files lets you leaf through them with ease.
No packing materials? No Worry!
We have archive boxes, padlocks and other materials available to buy on site.
