Records Storage

Records storage is the backbone of our business. We store hard-copy records, from medical charts to personal financial information, in various sized boxes. Our modern, secure record center includes a clean private warehouse, steel racking, advanced electronic security monitoring systems, heat/fire/smoke sensors, and a comprehensive sprinkler system. Paper Tiger uses cutting-edge, bar-coding and inventory-tracking equipment to making it easy to locate and retrieve your stored information whether you need an entire box or just a file in a box. Because we also own our building, our clients are ensured of greater stability: we are here to stay.
