Store Away Your Sheafs... Let Us Manage That Old Paperwork

Posted on July 20, 2023

File storage can be a beautiful thing.

It often feels like you can’t get away from those pesky but important documents scattered around, cluttering up space. We’re living in an era of digitization, but there are still plenty of hard copies in our lives that need to be managed. Whether you own a business or have a stash of personal documents, those unruly piles of paperwork require special storage to ensure privacy, security, and historical information at your fingertips if needed.

Your attic or basement might seem like an easy place to shove items like storage boxes, but those locations are vulnerable to hazards like fire, pests, flooding, or theft. Move those boxes out of your life and instead into a trusted self-storage unit at Space Centre Storage Kelowna. Let the expert staff members give you a tour of their climate-controlled storage building, where they provide file storage shelving units built to house containers of all shapes and sizes. You’ll make everyone happy by clearing the clutter at home and in your office space while at the same time enjoying true peace of mind that your documentation is safe.

You can get yourself organized as quickly as today! First off, educate yourself on what documents you have to hold onto. For personal files, you should keep anything related to taxes or income neatly stored for at least six years. Your file storage should also include several years of medical files about yourself or your family. What about personal purchase receipts and bills? Keep them for at least a year in case a warranty is involved that you might want to use later on. If you own a business, the rules are the same: Keep all relevant financial files handy for at least six years in case an audit is required.

Shred what you don’t need, then organize your file storage by topic and year for easy reference in case you need to search for something. Ensure your files are in quality boxes that can handle heavy files and can easily be labeled and stacked. Don’t be lazy about the labeling: You’ll save yourself a lot of stress and money down the road if a required historical document is easy to locate. No efficient business owner wants to pay an employee to leaf through dozens of poorly-labeled self-storage boxes.
