Document Storage, in different shapes and forms, has been around for as long as we care to remember.
For those that don't know what Document Storage is, it's basically a means of retaining historic paper-based information that might be critical to the running of a business over a set period of time.
Whilst the roots of document storage may have been simply placing your documents into a box and storing it in a room or cupboard for safekeeping, today's methods of storage and retrieval can embrace technology, making it even easier and safer to store your documents than ever before.
Looking back over the years Archive Storage may have originally been a simple box or filing cabinet in which a company would store their documents, for future reference if required.

These filing cabinets and boxes would, in time, start to take up a lot of space, and eventually, a whole small (or large) room might be used.
For some companies, especially those in areas where office space rental is at a premium it would make more sense to move these documents to a remote location.
However, the problem with remote locations, especially remote office space, is that the company management might not feel so secure or be as easy to access should the need arise. This is where purpose-built document storage facilities came in.
The purpose-built archive storage facility is run by a company dedicated to providing a safe, secure and accessible document storage service to its customers. This is done by a formal method of storage in an environment that is secured by both technology and security personnel.
