Document Storage - What we do

We work with many leading scientific, manufacturing and professional services companies, as well as government bodies and other public organisations. We offer secure document storage solutions you can trust.

Archive document storage provides the solution to storing large volumes of documents that are required for legal and compliance reasons, but are not required for day-to-day access. It provides a more cost-effective solution by allowing more efficient use of office space, whilst maintaining quick and easy access to documents and files.

Physical Document Storage

Secure storage of all your physical files and documents. We offer a choice of physical storage solutions to meet the varying requirements across a wide range of industries.

Digital Document Storage

Storing files and documents electronically instead of in physical form. This method of storage is becoming increasingly popular due to its convenience, accessibility, and the ability to easily search and organise documents.


We provide a comprehensive range of document scanning and digital conversion services using state-of-the-art equipment. We can advise on the best mix of scanning and hardcopy storage to meet your specific needs.

Document Scanning & Storing

Document scanning offers flexibility and instantaneous access to documents without taking up valuable office or storage space. It can help control costs and can keep archive security at a premium as the digitised documents are in your control.

Confidential Destruction

We offer a confidential destruction service of both paper documents and electronic media. This is available to all storage clients or as a standalone service to companies and private individuals. A certificate of destruction is provided upon completion of the service, providing proof all confidential information has been securely destroyed.

Other Services

We offer a host of other specialised storage services including temperature and humidity controlled secure vaults, argonite gas fire suppression pods, alongside regular secure archive storage. We work with you to determine the best solution for your company.

Document Scanning and Storage: The Advantages of Archiving

In today’s fast-paced business world, having quick access to important information is crucial. Digitising and storing your documents can help streamline your work processes, increase efficiency, and reduce costs. In this blog, we will explore the many benefits of scanning and storing your documents electronically.

7 Reasons why you should consider document storage:

Improved Organisation

Gone are the days of spending hours searching through stacks of paper to find a single document. With digital document management, all your files can be easily organised, searched, and retrieved with just a few clicks. This not only saves time but also reduces the risk of misplacing important information.

Space Savings

Digitally stored documents take up significantly less physical space than paper documents, freeing up valuable office space. This can also help declutter your workspace, reducing distractions and increasing productivity.

Enhanced Security

Digital documents can be password-protected and backed up, reducing the risk of theft, loss, or damage. This can give you peace of mind, knowing that your important information is secure and protected.

Increased Accessibility

Digitally stored documents can be accessed from anywhere, at any time, making it easier for remote employees or multiple locations to collaborate. This can greatly improve communication and coordination between team members.

Cost Savings

Scanning and storing your documents electronically can reduce the costs associated with printing, shipping, and storing paper documents. This can also help save money on supplies such as paper, ink, and file folders.

Environmental Sustainability

Digitising your documents reduces the need for paper, reducing waste and the environmental impact of paper production. This can help your organisation reduce its carbon footprint and support a more sustainable future.

Document Storage Compliance

Electronic document management can also help organisations comply with legal and regulatory requirements regarding the storage, availability, and protection of certain types of records. This can reduce the risk of costly fines and ensure that your organisation is operating within the law.
