Document Storage

Whatever document storage requirement you have; files, boxes, wills or deeds, active or inactive we can offer a solution that fits your business and budget.

If you need access to your documents in a hurry, we can deliver the physical file to your desk in a few hours or you can benefit from our scan on demand service and view your document digitally within minutes.

If you require the highest level of security & fire protection, we have a Durasteel vault where you can store wills, deeds and original documents.

If you need to keep documents for compliance and don’t require regular access we offer cost-effective ‘deep’ long-term storage solutions.

The space and cost savings we offer are particularly valued by our London clients. Our Essex facilities are all within easy reach of central London and the City.

Document Shredding

We offer a secure shredding & destruction service for documents and digital media. Whether you require a regular, ad-hoc or one off service we have a solution for you.

Our mobile shredding truck can visit your premises. It can shred paper, at up to 3 tonnes in an hour, and also securely destroy unwanted digital media.

Alternatively we will collect everything requiring secure destruction from your premises, using our vetted, uniformed staff in our fully tracked vehicles.

We will manage the whole process (compliant to the BS EN15713 standard, “Secure Destruction of Confidential Material” ) and issue a certificate of destruction upon completion.
