FAQ: Do we have to use your archive boxes?

We store boxes regardless of their type, size and style. However, we cannot accept boxes that are split or in any way fail the basic function of containing confidential information.  Likewise boxes that are overfilled or have broken handles may pose manual handling risks and so, with the customers consent, are reboxed.  Our boxes are usually cheaper in the long-term. Read on to find out more.

 

There are many different brands and styles of archive boxes. As a document storage company our number one concern is the protection of confidential information. Whilst we always handle boxes carefully, cheap variations eventually fail and that puts the security of your information at risk. 

Handles that tear, interlocking bases that fall out and weak walls that cause boxes to keel over are a safety hazard too!

 

Not all boxes are the same and so we have a checklist to illustrate how quality boxes can actually be cheaper when their total life cost is considered.
 
There are three principle factors to consider when selecting archive boxes:
 
Security - cheaper boxes may risk the loss of documents and other confidential information
Total life cost - cheaper boxes do not last and may need to be replaced
Safety - boxes that split or collapse are more likely to be a hazard that cause slips and trips
