Secure Off-Site Storage

Off-site Document Storage provides a Low-Cost alternative to storing your files On-site or in expensive Self-Store Buildings, freeing up your expensive office space and saving you upto 85% of your current Storage Costs, with very fast, reliable access to your information.

Deed Storage

Here at Storofile we can offer Secure Fireproof Vault Storage for your deeds, CD backup and other material that is vitally important.

Lenders these days do not necessarily need the information contained in the deeds for property, however they are still unique documents and of vital importance. Deeds are often provided on mortgage redemption and home owners must ensure that they are kept securely.

This is required because any prospective purchasers need to know whether there are restrictive covenants on the property such as stopping building work for example, and that any past work has got full planning permission. Would you buy a house without that knowledge?

To date, information of this kind is not held on any computer records, so paper records still need to be retained.

You can also use these facilities to secure you important information and your companies important CD / DVD Backup’s that cannot afford to be lost.

Secure Fireproof Vault

Storofile can offer a secure fireproof Storage option for all those important documents, CDs and other material that is vitally important to your business, giving you that extra peace of mind.
