Other Physical Document Storage FAQs

What sort of boxes do we need to use for storage?

Boxes should be of sufficient construction for stacking on pallets and should not contain material that weighs more than 20kg for each box. IPC can advise clients on suitable boxes if required. IPC retain the right to reject boxes delivered to the IPC  facility if overweight or of poor construction.

All boxes must be marked by number by client (min 2 box ends) in order for tidy stacking and data base entry. Numbering / colour coding can be used as required by client.

Where are boxes stored?

For over 20 years IPC has had a separate document storage warehouse facility based near Kings Ripton, Huntingdon, which is CCTV monitored, secure and alarmed, with intruder fire / smoke detection. Boxes are rack mounted on pallets.

How do we handle the secure storage of documents?

We can arrange collection in bulk or in smaller quantities, of properly constituted boxes or client can arrange for delivery themselves.

Firstly, as boxes are stored in tiered racking in our document storage facility, clients need to use relevant box size and construction to retain integrity especially over a long storage period, before filling with files (paper weighs a lot!). At IPC we can provide advice on the correct specification and even arrange for the purchase of agreed specification the boxes themselves if required.

Next all paper -based boxes should be labelled with the minimum requirements being the marking of box ends with the same relevant box number. A list of boxes to be collected for document archive storage should also be emailed in advance, to act as a check list on delivery.

Once received, we check the boxes in and they are entered on our database, as to bay location. We also confirm receipt and notification of any boxes that don’t meet agreed storage standards.
With our new warehouse system, clients will have web access to check locations and request retrievals themselves (normal business hours Mon – Fri) via our storage portal. The storage portal also has features to set notes and review dates against boxes, also full audit history is logged against each box so the client can see historic box information and the ability to download box lists for audit purposes, making managing your storage as easy as possible.
