Document storage units at Hogleaze Storage

Get your documents in order… Why choose document storage units in 2020?

In a world striving to be paperless, businesses are only too aware of the amount of paperwork that is still required to operate. Whether it’s accounting documents, physical records, or even stock, Hogleaze Storage solutions can provide a business storage unit perfect for archiving all business assets. Leading the way with document self storage facilities, Hogleaze Storage ensures that businesses in Dorchester and Weymouth keep offices and warehouses as paperless as possible

In this article, we explain the steps you can take to get your paperwork in order… 

Step 1 – Know what you need to keep 

With all the legislation around GDPR that came in last year, do you even know what details of your customers or clients you are meant to keep? A lot of this information is likely to be stored on a computer, but here are some documents you may need to keep hold of: 

  • VAT receipts and paperwork need to be held for 6 years
  • PAYE records should be kept for 3 years
  • Inland Revenue and taxation documents need to be kept for 6 years 
  • Company Records such as corporation tax self-assessment and accounting records must be retained for 6 years
  • Documents containing information that refers to a staff member should be kept for 20 years. 

Step 2 – Ditch some of your documents and recycle

You may not realise it, but you probably have a lot of paperwork that can simply be recycled or destroyed if it contains sensitive information. Do you really need those ticked off to-do lists from 2019 that are piling up on your desk?

Once you’ve got rid of the unnecessary paperwork, you can start to work out if you have enough space to store it yourself, or if you need to look into renting a document storage unit. 

Step 3 – Get your documents organised

So you’ve established what’s important and have come to the realisation that you simply don’t have space in your office, this is where we come in! 

Get yourself some large archive boxes and start to organise your paperwork into piles which you can label with the year it relates to or the type of documents that are within the box. 

Step 4 – Arrange your document storage 

Once you’ve got all your ducks in a row, we can help you to arrange the best unit size for your archive boxes. Our document storage unit sizes range from 20 sq ft up to 200 sq ft, so we will be able to meet your needs. 

Step 5 – Get a quote for your storage unit 

We appreciate how many outgoings you will have as a business. If important paperwork and documents have taken over the staff room, or a hallway that is lined with archived files is commonplace then you will want to make sure you get the best value for money. Fear not… we price all our units competitively.

Whether temporary or long-term, Hogleaze Storage are leading by example compared with other document storage companies. Offering flexible access times at both our Weymouth and Dorchester sites, the well-kept and spacious business storage units boast onsite parking so that you can transport your business assets with convenience and ease door to door.

Hogleaze Storage has found by helping businesses free up space, companies have benefited from efficiently managing information growth, experienced increases in stock, staff and asset capacity and have even enabled quick recovery at point of disaster. By organising document storage so that it is outside of the workplace, the whole business can benefit from the additional space.

Hogleaze provides excellent facilities and service

We are emailing you to inform you that we have sold our motorhome and will no longer require the pitch. Should we buy another van, we will of course come back if you have availability.

You provide excellent facilities and service.

Really impressed with the service & customer-focused attention

I was really impressed with the service and customer-focused attention I received dealing with you both. Prompt replies to my enquiries and professional standards throughout mean that my first thoughts on needing storage will be towards Hogleaze. Also, as I mentioned when meeting you, my work involves motor homes, camper vans and the occasional ‘shed’ and I have and will continue to recommend you. I took several of your cards for this purpose!

Unfortunately, our house move failed as the buyers pulled out on Christmas Eve (nice) so I’ve put my MX5 back in our double garage but I was happy knowing it was safe and snug at yours!

Found the facility to be safe and secure

I used Hogleaze Storage for many years and found the facility to be safe and secure. My belongings stayed dry; the ambient temperature seemed just right and there was no dampness. Wooden furniture; cardboard boxes and books all survived intact. The staff are also helpful and friendly. I recommend this facility.

I really like the facility and I am very impressed with the setup you have.

It was lovely to meet you last Friday and finally get the Caravan in to secure storage. I really like the facility and I am very impressed with the setup you have. I received your welcome letter yesterday and have set up the standing order for the 1st July and then to continue at the begin of each month thereafter.

Thank you once again.

I would recommend Hogleaze Storage to anyone thinking of storing their possessions

It has been a most enjoyable experience entrusting Hogleaze Storage Ltd with my furniture, household and personal possessions, since August 2012.

It was good to meet Shelley, her helpful and friendly demeanor, nothing was too much – she even brought along bolt cutters in case I could not open the padlock on the shutter doors. She was happy to show Gentleman Removals and myself the way.

The service has been excellent throughout the seven years, with up-to-date monthly invoices and security information – thoughtful and caring – all my possessions including the ones I did not know I had stored in the unit, were intact and working.

I would recommend Hogleaze Storage Ltd to anyone thinking of storing their household, office and personal possessions, whether short or long-term. The location is worth a visit on its own, the site is safe and secure, clean and accessible 24/7.
