Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best way to store documents?

The best way of storing most documents is digitisation. However, businesses are often required or may choose to keep physical copies of certain documents, such as tax records and contracts. Keeping these at your business address creates additional risk of documents being lost or destroyed in the event of a fire, break-in or simply through human error when filing and re-filing. Many businesses choose to keep these business-critical documents at a secure off-site location, such as a storage unit, where they can be kept in fire-proof containers, under 24-hour CCTV surveillance and controlled access.

What is the most secure place to store documents?

A business storage unit is one of the most secure places to store physical copies of documents for your business, including tax records. Keeping documents off-site at a secure self-storage unit eliminates the risk of them being lost, destroyed or stolen. At Ready Steady Store, your documents will be under 24-hour CCTV surveillance and controlled access with a PIN and padlock.

Where can I store all my documents?

If you need additional storage for physical documents, such as tax records or contracts, a secure storage unit is one of the best options. Storing your documents off-site can help you be organised, reduce clutter and minimise the risk of business-critical documents being damaged or misplaced.
