Call Business Archives today and learn how we can improve your office efficiency and reduce costs through:

Security is Our First Priority

 Every precaution is taken to ensure the security of your hard copy files and vault media. Strictly controlled access procedures and virtually every kind of detection device is installed to protect your valuable records. Your computer media and other sensitive documents are stored in our archival vault. From the locks on our doors and our motion detectors, to our climate control and HALON fire suppression systems, our facility is secure. 

Secured Access

 We require all staff to pass through a series of security checkpoints identical to those used to gain entry into a bank's safety deposit vaults. Signature Authorization Cards control entry into the record center, and only people whose signatures and secret access codes are on file gain admission. 


 Our vault is equipped with an environmental control system that provides a controlled environment ideal for computer media and microfilm management. The temperature and the relative humidity are rigidly controlled. The walls in the vault are 8" thick, and are specifically engineered to meet the rigid standards of the federal government. 


 In addition to motion detectors and an alarm system wired directly to the police department, Business Archives uses state-of-the-art fire protection. This three tiered system included ionized smoke detectors, heat sensors, and the HALON 1301 fire suppression system.

File Storage & Retrieval



Our containers are designed specifically for record center utilization. They will store either letter or legal size files, and they fit compactly on our metal shelves, thus keeping your storage costs to a minimum. You select the type of indexing you would like. For example, there may be one entry describing the contents of an entire box, or materials may be indexed according to the files within the box, if necessary. Our indexing ability can be as simple or as detailed as you want it to be.

Each indexed item, whether a container or a file within the container, will have an individual "Address" that remains with the box until it is permanently removed or destroyed. You will get a summarized computer listing of your records quarterly.



Easy access to your records is essential. With Business Archives, your records are as close as your telephone! One phone call from you sets our retrieval system in motion.

Our sophisticated computerized information management program can find your document fast...faster than your internal staff...without the frantic pressure or concern.
