Find out how long the company has been in business.
When it comes to safeguarding highly sensitive information, it’s important to do your research. After all, trusting just any company in the industry to store your vital documents could be risky and even detrimental if they are lacking experience. Always look for a document storage company that has proven, significant industry experience. Review their website to gain insight into the history of the company and the services offered.

Ask whether they offer document delivery requests.
There will be times that you’ll need to retrieve specific documents; sometimes with very little notice as well. Your document storage company should provide convenient access for requesting document delivery, as well as general access to the status of information at any time. Web-based systems are ideal as they allow for immediate accessibility to perform those requests without having to contact a provider by telephone.
Corrigan Record Storage provides web-based software that will inform you exactly how simple it is to manage and schedule your pickups and deliveries in no time at all.
Verify that they offer 24/7 Support and Rush Delivery Services.
It’s important to partner with a document storage provider that realizes the need for 24/7 service.

Your document storage company should provide flexible scheduling and delivery. Need records the same day of request? Corrigan Record Storage can have your documents delivered within 2 hours. It doesn’t get much faster than that!
