Recently we moved offices and as I was packing and packaging piles of paper away into boxes ready to be locked up safe in our new office that really this was utterly ridiculous. When I reached for what felt like the thousandth bag, I let out a deep sigh. Why didn’t we just put it into storage? It would have been so much simpler? I approached my director who agreed that the relocating process could have been smoother, but warned that we would need to find a secure self-storage site which offered insurance against damage and theft/break-ins with extra-good security for our customer and cliental documents.Eventually every business will face the problem of desperately trying to find somewhere suitable to store documents – particularly if you work in legal or financial sectors as many documents, even if not currently in use, must be held for a certain amount of time. To lose anything under other files and paperwork would be a disaster! Previously to keep your documents organised it was common to have hefty file cabinets in offices, however in recent years, particularly in London, there simply is not the space to have filing cabinets where staff could be – as every centimetre of space is precious.
