Document Storage vs. In-Office Storage

Two rows of blue file cabinets with random drawers open featuring file folders of various colors.

If you and your team are anything like the average American worker, you are each printing 10,000 sheets of paper per year.

  • Have you reduced your paper use recently, but still have years or decades-worth of paper files that you are required to retain and store?
  • Are you subject to an ever-growing list of Compliance Requirements that force you to keep more and more documents for ever-longer periods of time?
  • Have you been storing all of your documents in the office, but are now running out of room? Are you moving soon?

When you run out of room or have to relocate, the logical solution seems to be to move your files to self storage, but it's not. Learn why it's a bad idea to store your records in self storage.

The Top 3 Reasons to Store Your Documents Off-Site

#1: Your Office Space Costs Way Too Much to Store Boxes

With the average office space in this area priced at $1.92 per square foot, wouldn't you rather spend just $0.27 and SAVE 86%?

That doesn't even include your file cabinets' footprint, the space you have to keep clear in front of them, and how unsightly they are.

Call us at 214-333-3453 to run the numbers and find out exactly how much you're spending on in-office file storage each month.

#2: You're Moving Now or Soon (or Leasing Your Office Space)

Before you know it, you've grown out of your space, your landlord is raising the rent, or you need to downsize. Either way, your moving budget has to include time and money to move documents that are producing zero ($0) revenue.

Call CRM to empty your office and start you off with a FREE file pickup.

#3: Your Risk of Data Breaches are High & Increasing.

Your HR records are locked up in a file cabinet, right? Company financials too?

Your lock is not nearly as safe as storing your files among hundreds of thousands of other boxes far away from your employees, competitors, and data thieves.

We switched to CRM with our document storage and document shredding needs and consider that one of the best decisions ever. CRM is very professional, local and easy to work with. Many thanks CRM!

-Leopold Steinberger

Great and personal service. Great always know where your boxes are and so do they! Not only do they have the best boxes ever for storing your docs (reasonably priced, sturdy and best of all---easy to put together), they also have onsite shredding. Full service for the entire life cycle of your documents. We have been a customer for approximately 8 years and NEVER had a single problem...which was not the case with our previous vendor! 

-Patricia Flournoy

Love Corporate Records Management. Very efficient and friendly staff. Have never had any issues, would definitely recommend.

-Maribel Hernandez

Very effective in storing our backup tapes in climate controlled storage. They are real quick to response in email queries and was always available to return tapes in case we have an emergency restore. Excellent customer service as well.

-Philip Mills

I have only been working with Corporate Records Management for a few months, but they have been an excellent partner to have in managing our extensive amount of hard copy construction plans and specifications. They are prompt and professional when picking items up to take to their storage facility, and it is extremely easy to request items back from storage if needed at a later time. I have made retrieval requests in the afternoon, and they have delivered to us the very next day. KWA Construction is most appreciate of Corporate Records Management! You help keep our office tidy and clutter-free!

-Tasha Keene

We've used CRM for almost 2 years to store our data tapes offsite. They have been reliable and easy to work with. When we have had special requests they have been quick to respond and get us what we need quickly. There were a few minor glitches when we were first getting everything setup at the beginning, but everything was quickly sorted out and we have zero complaints.

-Bret Harrell

Corporate Records Management is an awesome company. They have very friendly people who don't mind helping if you call with a question. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking to store files at an offsite facility

-Frank DaMommio

Great customer service and rapid response time to orders! Very professional and they also have had great solutions for problems my company has had. Patient employees helped us when dealing with a big conversion. Will highly recommend for business needs.

BONUS ITEM: Why It's More Convenient to Store at CRM than Down the Hall

Did you know that CRM can have any file, or even a single piece of paper, stored in its records center on your desk or in your inbox within a few hours?

Our Happy Clients Do.

It seems really convenient to have your files right down the hall. Do you recognize that you are paying a premium for that luxury. But what if it isn't a luxury at all?

CRM's professional records management system is so much more than box storage. It also includes a robust database. And in this database, you can store and retrieve data down to the file, patient, client or item level, plus same and next-day retrieval and either physical delivery to any address you request, or digital Scan on Demand delivery to you or other parties as you instruct.

If you have ever spent time looking for a file that "should be here," or been out of the office and needed a file but couldn't reach anyone at the office, you can benefit from CRM's complete information management solution.
