Are Archive Storage Boxes Still A thing?

Reading Time: 3 minutes


We’re well into the digital age where storing documents and information has never been easier with the use of hard drives, USB sticks, discs and cloud drives. All this taking up only a fraction of the space as traditional paper documents being filed away. So why do companies still allocate considerable space to shelving and cabinets for storage of physical paper documents such as faxes, bills, certificates, and letters? As great as storing documents digitally is, sometimes it is also necessary (and advised) to keep an original and or physical copy on hand, and even if you’re looking to go fully digital you’ll want to keep your documents well organised, secure and accessible until you get round to digitalising them 

So, what exactly is an  archive storage box? Quite simply, the term ‘archive storage box’ covers a wide variety of different boxes designed to store magazines, folders, documents and variety of different paperwork items in bulk for many years and even decades. This has led to us developing our range of document archive storage boxes to encompass a variety of different styles to suit your needs, whether at home or in the office.

With the increase of digitalisation, it might seem that there is no need for archive boxes in the future.
