Document Scanning, Confidential Shredding and Storage

We are experts in the efficient handling of your business information. We keep safe and accessible what you need to keep.

Document Scanning

We are able to prepare, scan and index large volumes of paper documents thanks to our state of the art equipment which includes high speed scanners.

Once scanned, clients can choose whether they would prefer documents to be destroyed or placed into deep storage. All of the scanned images can then be made available on CD, DVD or via a web based browser.

Confidential Shredding

The safe handling and storage of confidential data is core to our business. We provide both on-site and off-site shredding (paper shredding, hard drive shredding etc) as well as a range of collection containers for the secure handling of your information prior to collection.

Whether you choose on-site shredding or off-site shredding you will be assured of the same high levels of service.

Secure Storage

Topwood has been providing secure archiving services to many public sector organisations, blue chip companies and SMEs since 2003.

Our purpose built archives ensure the safe protection of documents and data. Our success is based on using the best IT tracking systems, fully trained staff and our commitment to customer service.

Certificates of Destruction

It is a legal requirement to have proof of destruction for business data. We provide you with full easy on-line access to all of your Certificates of Destruction

There is enough work day to day to ensure the smooth running of a business without having to deal with the possibilities of fraud, which can not only to lead to financial difficulties but have a much larger negative effect on business. Topwood’s confidential shredding services are designed specifically to impact business in a positive way.

Storing your physical documents off-site is another way in which you can free up valuable space in the workplace. Archive rooms are usually full to bursting even when you only have the files you need but when you have boxes upon boxes of files that you don’t imminently require an off-site storage space can prove invaluable.
