Business Storage Solutions

Whether you are a sole trader, a large corporate or you run a mobile service, you are likely to require storage space. Having an occasional clear-out may not be a sensible answer, especially in view of future need and environmental waste.

Few companies have large enough onsite areas to store items properly. From important records, documents and equipment to furniture or files, security and accessibility are only two of the key considerations.

One of the most economical and effective solutions is offsite storage. With round-the-clock monitoring, easy access, short and long term storage options, climate control and free collections, no business owner should worry about the exorbitant cost of space in London.

Dedicated to secure business storage, TipTop Media offer a flexible solution that answers your every need.

SHOULDN'T YOU KNOW WHERE OUR STUFF IS?

Each of our clients have their own dedicated space in which their boxes are placed by us. We know where your boxes are but what we may not know is the content within each box unless priorly arranged.

What do you define as a document number?

A document number is a number or set of numbers used on each document as a way of identification. Document numbers are generally created in-house by clients themselves so that items can be tracked using some form of database library system. Each document number is unique to that document and should not be repeated.

What is a database?

A database is a program in which data is stored. The data within the database could be anything the user wanted to have a record of. When used in this context, we would be referring to digital records of documents. The database acts as a central hub for the documets generally storing specific data fields such as title, document number and whether it is on-site or off-site. Those are the fundamental pieces to a database library system.

What if we don't have document numbers?

Not to worry. At TipTop we strive to do the best we possibly can to make storage with us as seamless an integration as it can be. We are experienced in divising suitable adjustments to suit both parties

We need a document back but its mixed with other confidential documents?
