What Can Document Storage Be Used For?
This is a bit like saying, why would I need to store documents? Well every business has papers it needs to store, even though some documents are stored on computer in a digital format. Let's take a look at some of the things you might need to store.
Accounts Information has to be stored for a lot of years by law. Most of the time it is never accessed, it just remains in files, but you have to keep it in case you need to access it. Our storage system gets it out of your office and stores it securely, just in case.
Legal Information, much the same as accounts information, has to be stored to cover an eventuality that might never happen.
Backup Information. It is sometimes useful to have copies of documents stored away from your own premises. You might want to consider storing backup CDs or DVDs containing business data. This provides a degree of protection should your business suffer a fire or flood.
Business History. Many businesses like to keep some form of record of things they have done, maybe promotional leaflets, product packaging, photographs and so on.
Temporary Storage: useful if you are moving premises, being redecorated, or restructuring. and just want to clear some space. You can store with Lovitt without having to take on a long contract. When you want your stuff back, we'll return it to you.
Catalogues and Magazines: they seem to build up of their own accord! But if you want to hang on to them then our storage might be the answer.
How Document Storage Works
You tell us how many boxes you need and we will deliver them to you. You can start with just one box, or you can have lots of them. After each box is completed you tell us what is in it. Each box is numbered and we will keep a record of the owner and the contents. That way, if you need to retrieve the box it can be quickly located.
What size are the boxes? The boxes are all a standard size, so that they can be stored and retrieved efficiently. If you have other items that will not fit in the box, then we offer other types of storage for these items.
Can I only store papers? As long as the items fit in the box then they can be stored, but they must be suitable for storage. Obviously things that are perishable, dangerous or illegal may not be stored.
Can I seal the box so that I know it is secure? Once we have checked the contents of the box so that we know it contains nothing prohibited, then you may seal the box.
Can Lovitt dispose of unwanted boxes? If you no longer require the contents of a box, we will dispose of it on your instruction. We can provide secure document shredding.
