What’s Under Your Bed?

What’s under your bed?

Some research caught our eye this week. A survey put out by ‘digital shoe box’ and memory-keeper LifeTile revealed that a third of us prefer to store our most valuable documents in a (non-digital) shoebox, tucked away under the bed. Almost half (45%) opted for a filing cabinet or safe, one in 10 opted for keeping them in piles around the house, and just 6% said they kept them online.

We found this interesting reading – and in fact when we thought about it, we weren’t that surprised. We probably do all have boxes full of documents dotted around our homes. And our businesses for that matter – how many times have you wondered how on earth anyone manages a paperless office?

But what else should we do with them? You could (and probably should in some cases) scan them, and keep them electronically, but a lot of people like a hard copy too, or they may be a requirement.

But when it feels like our homes and offices are getting bogged down under piles of paperwork, maybe it’s time for a proper Spring clean. Do you really need those bank statements from 10 years ago? Do you need to keep invoices that you’ve also scanned in electronically? Can you even find your birth certificate or passport under the mounds of other papers you’ve been collecting? Do you even know what half of it is now?

If you’re not sure if you’ll need them again storage is always a possibility until you decide what to do with them. We can provide archiving and document management services for businesses, so you can refer back to important documents at any time, without using up your valuable office space to store them.

But if it’s time to get rid – maybe it’s time to get shredding! We can offer personal and business shredding services, which are quick, simple and cost effective.

And if a tidy desk/home/spare room/under the bed is a tidy mind, just think how much better you’ll feel!

Testimonials

I stored my belongings in this space for one year, and it was absolutely pleasant experience. The staff is extremely professional and helpful, and they take time to understand the requirements of the client.
Even after not visiting my locker for one year, the storage is in excellent condition even after getting it back. I would recommend this to anyone. Really good experience!

5 Stars

Everything was just easy and straight forward. I've used other self storage places in the past but this was just so much better. The manager Sarah was great and really friendly. I would definitely recommend this company and will be using them again next year!!!

Jodie was fantastic and getting the storage booked was really easy. The unit was perfect for what I needed to store over the summer.
