Want the ability to retrieve documents from storage?

Not a problem! Whilst most records in archive storage are rarely accessed, we understand that in the event of an audit, HMRC request or HR issue, you may wish to retrieve your files.

For such instances, we have created a scan on-demand service!

With scan on demand, we will locate the box required, digitise the documents within into secure PDF's and deliver the electronic records to you within just 8 working hours. If you require physical access to the paper documents, we can even arrange postage to you first-class recorded delivery.
