A breach in sensitive documentation can be a disaster for both the owner of the documents and the subject of the sensitive document. For the owner and guardian of the document, severe penalties can be handed out due to the fact that a lost or breached document is considered failure to comply with governmental guidelines on data storage. There is a chance you might face a penalty up to half a million pounds. Many companies have suffered from a loss of reputation and therefore a loss of clientele due to a simple data breach – both large scale online data breaches or simply just leaving an important document unguarded have had severe repercussions.

Secure Document Storage

In a variety of businesses, it is legally required to keep certain document stored for a specific period of time due to inspection. For example, VAT papers need to be kept and stored for more than 6 years before you have the right to destroy these documents. Another example is the register of Directors and Secretary, which must record details of past directorships for the past 5 years.

The amount of documents that you will need to store and keep handy at all times can become a bit much, and that is why you should outsource your document storage needs. At Secure Storage, we offer offsite document storage at a location near you, where you will be able to retrieve your documents at any given time. Imagine the amount of space that could go to waste due to a pile of documents you might never need again, but you must keep them due to legislation.  

To add to that, our offsite document storage location is very secure. Client confidentially is guaranteed, and all archive materials are stored in secure premises protected against fire, theft and with compliance with government legislation.

Document boxes will be shelved according to a strict document filing system that allows for speedy document retrieval. This strict filing system allows you to retrieve documents within half a day upon request of the document- in the case of checking . When you request retrieval, we scan your documents and send them to you electronically.

Secure Document Shredding

At Secure Storage Service, we store and destroy all manner of legal documents and deeds. This includes paper documents, hard drives, discs and microfilm. All document destruction is completed according to a strict retention policy as per our document storage services.

How Secure Document Shredding Works

One we agree upon a fixed price for your storage and eventual shredding needs, we are able to pick your document up with our secure vehicle and pick your documents of choice up and transport this to our facility. If you decide to scan your documents, we will sort your paperwork and prepare your documents for scanning. We will remove all of the items that could get in the way of the scanning process, such as paperclips, post-it notes and anything else.

Once we get to the stage where you are not legally obliged to keep those documents stored, we move on to the next phase – the shredding process. Once your paper arrives at our Wirral depot, it will be shredded in compliance with British Standard BS 160. Our shredding operations comply with Environmental Agency requirements and also with local and national laws. Likewise, our service will comply with the Data Protection Act 1998 particularly in relation to confidentiality.

Secure Document Shredding FAQ

Is one-off Secure Document Shredding an option?

Yes. We offer a simple one-off shredding service aswell. Speak to one of our specialists about what we can offer in that regard.

Is using your own shredders an alternative?

To add to that, imagine the time you would lose to prepare for the shredding! It would be cheaper and more efficient to outsource your Secure Document Shredding needs.
