The rise of digital technology has made storing documents electronically accessible to almost everyone. However, digital storage still hasn’t completely overtaken the world. There’s still a significant need for storing a hardcopy version of your important documents. In fact, the original hardcopy of many documents is more important and valuable than all your electronic copies put together. But where should you store all your hardcopy documents? The answer is in Self Storage in Welshpool from KeepSafe Storage Welshpool


You shouldn’t simply stack all your important documents on the floor of your Self Storage in Welshpool; instead, you need to invest in some quality containers. Plastic or metal containers are better than cardboard boxes; in the unlikely event of water damage, your documents will be more protected in plastic or metal containers. They’ll also last better over time and won’t lose their shape or break if they’re full to the brim.

Seperate documents in boxes

You should add an extra layer of protection between your documents to ensure the ink doesn’t transfer. You can use plastic sleeves or packing paper in between every document to ensure it’s protected. 


As you place your documents into their boxes, make sure you keep detailed records of what’s going where. Label the outside of the boxes with every single document they contain, and keep a master list of all the boxes and their contents at home. If you take the extra time now to ensure your boxes are clearly labelled, it’ll be much easier for you to find the specific documents you need later on. 

Move into Self Storage in Welshpool

You’ve packed your documents in plastic or metal containers, you’ve separated each document for transfer protection, and you’ve clearly labelled each box. It’s time for you to move your important documents into Self Storage in Welshpool. If possible, don’t store your boxes directly on the floor. Bring in tables or wooden pallets to create a barrier between your documents and the floor. Make sure you keep the security information for your storage unit a secret to protect your important documents.
