Document Storage
Scanning & Shredding across Leicester

We at Stor-a-File provide expert document handling services for companies across Leicestershire. From secure document storage to confidential shredding services, we have the perfect solution to save you space and time.

Storage Leicester

Having two dedicated sites in Leicester (in Thurmaston and Syston) allows us to provide companies in the immediate and surrounding areas with excellent document handling services; based only 45 minutes from the city center.

Document Storage

We have experience working with clients in both the public and private sectors, this means that we are familiar with and understand completely the challenges and complexities of document management for a wide range of purposes and industries.

Often without offsite document storage, or other more efficient document management processes, the documents that you do not require on a daily basis (but have to retain for legal or administrative purposes) can clutter up valuable office space and take up the time of those who need specific files.

By storing your documents on a seperate site, however, you can keep all the documents that you’re legally required to keep, safely and securely. Our detailed database allows us to help you keep track of when the retention dates on documents are due to expire so that you can decide whether to keep them or have them confidentially shredded with us.

We not only offer secure document storage but also backup tape storage, archive storage and secure media storage. Offsite document storage not only offers increased organisation and security for your documents; but it also frees up both space in your office and time for your staff. So, what are you waiting for? Get in touch now to find out how we can help you save space and time.

Document Scanning

Countless businesses across the country are making the leap to move documents from, fragile and often easily misplaced, paper forms to digitised documents. These digital documents are shared faster and often much more easily accessed across multiple sites, and can even be viewed by multiple members of staff at a time.

Our document scanning services take advantage of features including advanced capture and recognition technologies that can classify and extract from any document, regardless of type, content or format. This means that no matter what kind of document you are looking to convert to a digital form, we can accurately scan it and then transform the scanned documents into structured information.

We build a solution that caters for your exact scanning needs, giving us the flexibility of customising the project to your own internal systems/auditing needs, whilst also allowing you to build a bespoke document scanning solution that works for your budget and timescales. Once we have scanned your documents our storage is accessible to you through various methods, including SFTP, FTP, online hosting and encrypted storage media.

To see how we could improve the efficiency of your office processes with electronic document scanning, simply give our customer service team a call or contact us online to organise a free consultation or visit to one of our sites.


Document Shredding

Confidential destruction of documents is often a common procedure for businesses that deal regularly with information handling or sensitive client documents. It is key that your document destruction procedures are not only efficient and cost effective, but also GDPR compliant. At Stor-a-File we pride ourselves on being able to provide all three of these elements.

Our shredding process consists of five steps. Firstly, our trained staff assess the most secure, effective and cost-effective way to collect your confidential waste. Our DBS-checked, referenced and uniformed staff then securely collect your documents in GPS tracked, alarmed vehicles.

Next, your items are delivered to one of our sites where they are scanned into the shredding bay, quality checked and loaded into the shredding area. The industrial shredder cross cuts paper to the relevant standards, and this waste is then mixed and baled. The bales are then recycled.

This means that you can have peace of mind knowing that your documents are handled and destroyed not only to the highest standards of security but that they are also destroyed in an environmentally friendly manner. If you have documents that you feel we could help you destroy, or simply have more questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Two Leicester Sites

Having two sites based in Leicester allows us to work closely with companies local to the Leicestershire area. With our Thurmaston and Syston based facilities only 45 minutes away from the city centre, we can provide our expert document management services in a quick and efficient manner to all of our local clients.

Having our sites positioned close to cities like Leicester and Loughborough, but not within the centres of these cities, allows us to provide much shorter delivery times to our clients. This is ideal especially in the case of emergency document retrieval, allowing you to quickly retrieve your essential backups of documents; or alternately allowing you to quickly store files to prevent any further data loss.

Our conveniently placed storage centres being close to these city centres but not so close as to neighbour our clients’ businesses, not only allows us to offer speedy delivery, but the distance also means that we are unlikely to be affected by any natural or technological disasters (such as downed power lines or flooding) that your own premises are.

We have worked with many prominent clients throughout Leicester and the surrounding areas; including but not limited to Leicester City Council and NHS Leicester. If you’re a local business owner, or handle documents for local businesses why not give us a call and see how you could benefit from our local document storage sites.
