Document Storage, Retrieval and Records Management Solutions 

cutter_building_200The Woodhorn Records Management Service (WRMS) began in 1980 as a document storage and retrieval service for Northumberland County Council. The Service was originally based at the Morpeth Records Centre and relocated to Woodhorn Museum in September 2006. It is currently used by a number of organisations and individuals within the county of Northumberland. We are able to store paper documents and their bindings, 3-D objects, photographs and electronic data in our state-of-the art strongrooms.

Where do you currently store your house deeds, endowment policies, family heirlooms, precious photographs?

Can you afford to have these destroyed by unexpected weather patterns?

Allow us to care for your important documents and precious items.

Storage of files and boxes

records_management_storage_box_142Important documents (e.g. deeds, Wills) and 3-D objects are stored in two large state-of-the-art strongrooms, environmentally controlled to BS5454 with argon gas fire protection.

Each box is stored on its own shelf location; we do not store our boxes on top of each other where the weight of the boxes could potentially damage the lower boxes and their contents.

To allow for more flexibility in the items we store, 2 box sizes are catered for and box labels are provided by Woodhorn.

How do I arrange to have items stored at Woodhorn?

By contacting the Records Management staff in the first instance we can discuss your storage needs and advise on the best solution for your business requirements.

We have a robust document management system in place that will allow us to retrieve your records on demand. A courier service is available for the delivery of the records or they can be collected in person upon proof of identification.

 


records_management_research_room_142Can I examine my records on site?

At Woodhorn we offer confidential facilities for customers to examine and make copies of their documents.

Will you destroy my records when they are no longer needed?

We can arrange for the confidential destruction of your records on site.
