Three Simple Archive Storage Ideas

Whether you’re a business owner or a private individual, it may be that you have important documents that you want to protect and preserve. These could be company accounts, employee information, or something more personal to you, such as family diaries or rare books. The end is still the same: you need somewhere safe to keep them. But where? Here, we share a few ideas to inspire you…

1. Keep Your Information Online

Although some of the material you want to archive may be physically bulky and necessitate actual storage, a lot of things can be uploaded online. Although there is always the worry that this information will be lost, storing it in multiple places helps to avoid this. Thus, if you have accounts to preserve, keep them not only on your hard drive but also upload them to an online location such as OneDrive. This way, if one source is jeopardised, your important information can still be retrieved from the other.

2. Use Filing Cabinets

It sounds obvious, but you’d be surprised at how many people overlook the easy solutions. Although filing cabinets can be bulky, they are brilliant at what they do, with their construction and design effective against water damage, sunlight, and any vermin that may feel inclined to make a nest among your important documents. You can use their drawers to split archived files or items into categories, making it easier to locate the information you need when you go in search of it.

3. Install Archive Storage Racking

If filing cabinets fall short of meeting your storage needs, you could also take a look at the world-class archive storage racking that we provide here at CMC. Specifically designed to help you store and organise objects of importance, it is strong, durable and low cost, making it perfect for all of those vital documents that you need to save.
