Business files, sensitive documents and paper can soon add up and begin to feel like they are taking over your office. If you feel like you’re quickly running out of storage space for other, more important items then it’s about time you think about using a storage facility like GTW Storage to help.
Storing your documents externally can help to reduce the amount of clutter in your office, home office or spare room (!) all while increasing your productivity and bringing a bit of organisation to your workspace!
Heat and humidity are paper killers, so to ensure your documents stay in tip-top shape, then they need to be stored in a cool, dry place. Luckily, our storage warehouse in Glasgow is just that, so your documents will stay pristine.
Some other tips for storing your documents in a storage unit are:
- Use plastic containers rather than boxes
- If you’re planning on storing your documents for a long period of time, then we recommend using plastic containers rather than cardboard boxes, as over time, cardboard can crease and lose it’s shape, meaning that your documents are at risk of being crumpled!
- Use a file organiser
- A file organiser can be a lifesaver if you’re storing lots of different items under lots of different categories and can help keep you on track of your filing.
- Label each box!
- When you’re storing anything, and we mean ANYTHING, it’s best practice to label each box and note exactly what is in it. This will make your life so much easier when you’re retrieving your items.
When you no longer need to store your documents, you can choose whether to pick these up, or alternatively you can use our secure shredding service to destroy your sensitive data safely and securely.
If you or your business is interested in using our document storage service or are in need of data destruction then please give us a call on 0141 221 4727 or STorin via our website.
