Why do I need to store my documents?


There's an increasing amount of data generated and compiled by businesses today. With the high cost of office space and concerns over privacy laws and data security, off-site storage is a viable and cost-efficient solution.

There are always exceptions, but there are specific recommended retention guidelines suggested by the federal government. Bank deposit slips, cancelled checks, and entertainment records should be kept for a minimum of three years. Bank statements and expired contracts should be kept for a minimum of six years. Permanent files include items such as annual financial statements, corporate stock records, and tax returns.

No matter the size of your company, or even if you are a residential individual, many documents have a useful value for a period of time. Storing your documents off-site increases security in case of a disaster. It can provide you with peace-of-mind in knowing that when you need those vital records, they are at your fingertips.

Let us store your files for you in a climate-controlled storage area with video surveillance. Once the file's value expires and you no longer need it, we can shred it for you right on site!
