  • Why Record Retention Is Important

    Record retention is a valuable tool for companies and home businesses. A storage unit at a reputable storage facility is a safe, secure place to store important documents you may need later. Here are some key reasons why record retention is important.

    Record Retention in Orange County

    It Can Prove Valuable in a Lawsuit
    If you or your company is sued, or if you are listed as a plaintiff, witness, or custodian of record in any legal proceeding, the information contained in company and employee records might prove invaluable. You don’t need to store every piece of paper you’ve received since the founding of your company. Consult with an attorney with experience in records management for guidelines on what records are crucial and useful to store, and how long they should remain in storage before they can be destroyed.

    It May Be Legally Required
    Depending upon your business, retaining records for a specific time period may be legally required. All organizations are required by law to retain tax records and employment records. Typically, companies with 15 or more employees are required to keep employment records for 1 to 5 years, depending upon the document. Documents related to medical exams must be retained for at least 30 years. Tax records must be retained between 2 and 7 years, depending upon the tax document.

    You Can Create an Inventory of Your Records
    Sending your important records to a storage facility is a perfect opportunity to create a database or inventory of these documents for future reference. Each storage box should be numbered and contain distinctly labeled folders. As you add documents to folders, folders to boxes, and boxes to your storage unit, you should maintain and update your inventory.

    If you use your RV for summer trips and don’t have the space to store it at your home when you’re not traveling, you may be interested in using an RV storage facility. To protect your RV from damage, there are a few things you can do to prepare it for long-term storage.

    Get Your RV Ready for Long-Term Storage in Orange County

This protects your RV from the weather, as well as vandals and burglars. Open RV storage is usually in a large lot, and RVs are parked in designated parking spots that may or may not offer overhead coverage. If you choose open storage for your RV, make sure that the storage lot is well lit and protected by laser beams, a locked gate, and security cameras.

    Clean Your Storage Unit and RV Prior to Storage
    If you plan on using an enclosed RV storage unit, make sue to clean your RV beforehand to rid it of dust, dirt, and debris. Take time to investigate the space for signs of rodents or bugs that may damage or infest your vehicle.

    Make Necessary Repairs to Your RV
