Document Archiving in York and Harrogate

Here at DAW Logistics Ltd we’re glad to offer Yorkshire businesses a secure and inexpensive document archiving service.  If your industry’s regulator insists on a prolonged archiving period of client documentation then you’ll likely soon come to the conclusion that storing all your archived documents on-site simply is not viable.  Archived documentation takes up valuable office space.  On a cost ‘per-square-foot’ basis it simply does not make economic sense to archive past client’s documents on-site when far cheaper storage space can be found off-site.

Ideal for short and prolonged storage periods alike

Since solicitors and accountants are required to retain client documents for a period of six years the archived documents will simply gather dust if you decide to retain them on-site.  Instead it makes more sense to ship idle archived documents off to our secure and purpose built storage facility in York.

And since our facility is guarded by a CCTV system, you can be assured your compliance obligations under the Data Protection Act 1998 and other industry specific regulations regarding confidentiality are well taken care of.  The document archiving service we can provide all but eliminates business risk when it comes to guarding client documentation from the wrong hands.

A true ‘door-to-door’ service

Once your documents are collected by us, or delivered to our facility they will be organised using our efficient indexation system.  This will allow for speedy retrieval of important documents as and when the need for them arises.  We offer a same day/next day express service for specific documents you require to be retrieved from our care.

We collect your documents from your premises as and when you require us to do so.  We offer a complete ‘door-to-door’ collection and delivery solution.  Upon receipt to our York facility your archived documents will be secured in purpose built shelving which is monitored by CCTV 24 hours a day.

Our facility can take care of your document archiving needs no matter how big or how small.  We are able to store anything from 10 up to and surpassing 20,000 document boxes.  No matter how big or small your business may be you can be assured our bespoke archive storage solutions will meet your needs.
