Keep your business archives safe and secure with self storage near Oxford

Whether you’re moving offices or simply running out of space for your business, we can keep your important office archives safe and easy to access. Here’s how companies in and around Oxford can benefit from self storage:

Self storage for compliancy

According to UK Government regulations, you should hold onto your business records for at least six years, starting from the end of the last company financial year that they relate to. You might even need to keep them for longer if, for instance, they detail transactions that cover more than one of your accounting periods, or if you’ve procured certain equipment which is likely to last longer than six years. That’s six years’ worth of files, folders and ring-binders, which soon build up.

Our self storage rooms near Oxford enables you to tidily archive old records for the long-term, without worrying about them getting accidentally binned.

Reclaim floor space

Self storage is a great temporary measure for when you’re moving offices, but it’s also popular as a more permanent solution when you’re fast losing that most precious commodity; space. Perhaps you have surplus stock you need to store, seasonal goods, merchandise, furniture, or corporate banners and other marketing equipment that can clutter up your valuable floor space, filing cabinets and shelves. Sometimes these items get packed away in a spare room – or if it’s a home-based business, in a garage where they’re at risk of getting damp.

Self storage enables your business – or living space - to breathe. And because our units are dry and secure, you won’t have to worry about confidential papers getting damaged or lost.
