Archive storage retrievals 

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 various files.

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

With scan on demand, we will locate the box or boxes you require access to, digitise their contents into accessible PDF's, and provide you access to the electronic documents within just 4 working hours. We also facilitate express retrievals within two working hours and urgent retrievals within just one working hour! 

If you require access to the physical paper documents, we can even arrange postage of the box(s) to you via first-class recorded delivery.
