Document Storage & Information Management
Sooner or later, your old confidential records will begin to take up valuable space in your office, cubicle, storage areas. We can help you clear up some of that space by destroying or storing your unused files. Outdated files can be confidentially destroyed, but the rest of your records will require a set retention period. When this happens, box them up and send them directly to Interior Vault for storage. Interior Vault stores by the box not the space used in the facility, which makes storing your records with Interior Vault significantly more cost efficient than any other form of storage available.
Interior Vault Record Center is under a secure 24 hour infrared monitored video surveillance.
