Storing Documents at CRM vs. Self Storage
Are your inactive and archival boxes stored at your local self-storage facility? Are you considering using a storage unit for your confidential, proprietary files?
If so, are you aware that you may be paying more than you should be to store documents that you haven't touched—or needed—in years, as well as taking a big risk?
Would you even know where to start if you had to find a file in those piles of boxes?
Do you need to shred half of the documents you're storing, but are stuck because you don't know how to make it happen?

The Top 3 Reasons to Say Goodbye to Your Self Storage Unit
#1: Your Unit is Too Expensive
When you compare what you are paying now versus just $50 per month to store up to 130 letter/legal boxes, you know what makes most sense—or is it cents? Throw in all the extras, like our FREE online records management software and the fact that our team will retrieve the files for you, plus our incredible security, and your choice is clear.
Do you even need to keep all of those boxes? Switching to our service is the perfect time to reduce your box count and get organized.
Let us do the math for you and show you the savings.
#2: Your Time is Too Valuable
How much does it cost someone from your company to rifle through boxes at the storage unit? We’ll deliver any number of boxes tomorrow for a single transportation charge of $20.50. Do you ever grab a file and not put it back where it belongs when you're done? Not anymore. Just call us and we'll get it right back where it came from thanks to our barcode tracking system.
We'll get you organized and keep it that way.
#3: Your Insurance Risk is Too High
Even if your team is willing to stop by the storage unit, your insurance company isn't going to be happy about it. Employees who leave your office to go to self storage are a liability nightmare, and often aren't covered on your insurance. Traffic accidents, whether or not they are in a company vehicle, are now your problem. The injuries caused by lifting and sorting though those 50+ pound boxes stacked high will destroy someone's back, and your safety ratings.
Enlist our records management specialists to deliver boxes and files right to your desk and pick them up when you're finished, with no driving or heavy lifting.
BONUS ITEM: The True Cost of a Data Breach
Did you know that ONE box of records could be worth far more
than a storage unit full of TVs, jewelry and electronics?
That's right! A box that contain personal information about your clients, patients, customers or you, your company and its employees can be worth a fortune to a thief.
Cases pop up every day about high-profile electronic hacks, but your plain old paper files are highly desired by the criminal "community," and their value is easy to cash in on while your reputation gets destroyed and customers leave in droves.

Our records tech professionals are all HIPPA trained and NAID AAA Certified. We maintain SSAE 16 security certification suitable for financial institutions. Your storage unit offers none of that.
