    What is Document Storage? 

    Document storage refers to storing and managing documents in a systematic and organised manner. It is also referred to as archive storage or record storage. This can be either physical or digital documents. However, document storage is not just about storing your documents but also having easy access to your records should you need them.

    The Benefits of Document Storage

    Document storage offers numerous benefits for businesses and individuals. Below, we have listed some key differences you might see if you invest in document storage:


    • Organisation and Accessibility: By moving your records into a document storage facility, your documents will be organised systematically, making it easier to locate important documents when you need them. 
    • Space Efficiency: Storing your records off-site means you can have more space in your office, allowing you to expand or downsize depending on your needs. 
    • Security and Confidentiality: At Guardian Removals, we have several security measures put in place to ensure your documents are protected. Our facilities are alarmed, and our staff are trained in data protection, meaning we guarantee your records are safe with us.

    Do I Need Document Storage?

    Businesses typically use document and archive storage for various reasons. Generally, companies decide they need document storage when have too many documents and have no place to store them. By having an offsite archive facility, you can not only have more room in your office building, but we also offer a systematic organisation of your documents.

    Alternatively, some businesses decide to have a record storage facility as they require more security surrounding their documents. At Guardian Removals, we have a strict security policy that means only you and the people you have approved can access your information. 


    Document Security Measures 

    Your assets are tracked with a barcode system. This tracking method allows you to monitor a complete audit trail of an asset, from deposit to disposal. We can send you details on storage, a history of activity, and a comprehensive spend and trend analysis. This granular reporting is tailored for you, to give you transparency over where your records are, when they’ve been retrieved, and when they’re scheduled for disposal.
