Choosing a Business Storage Solution

Choosing a Business Storage Solution

Storage solutions for your business can range from a few storage boxes to an entire drawer system. Start here to determine to right storage solution for you.

Drawers Or Boxes?

If you have limited storage space and require frequent access to files, Bankers Box® storage drawers would be the best choice. If you have a lot more storage space available and need to access your files less often, storage boxes are the best solution.

When you choose drawer storage...

  • You can stack records higher and save space.
  • You can eliminate the need to stack and restack boxes
  • You cut record retrieval time in half

When you choose box storage...

  • You can move and handle records more frequently with stronger boxes
  • You can store less frequently accessed records safely with safe closures

 When you choose a drawer/box combo...

  • You can store active files in easy to access drawers
  • You can store inactive files in safely sealed boxes for long-term storage

Choosing the Right Storage Drawers

If space-saving is your primary concern, than drawers provide the best storage solution. Choosing the right type of drawer determines how high you can stack your drawers to save space, and the right size determines the size of the contents of the drawer.

Drawer Types

  • Maximum Space-Saving Drawers stack up to 10 drawers high.
  • Extra Space-Saving Drawers stack up to 7 drawers high.
  • Basic Space-Saving Drawers stack up to 2 drawers high.

Drawer Size

  • Letter/Legal Drawers accommodate both letter and legal size documents - This size drawer has the versatility for storing records of varied sizes.
  • Letter size drawers accommodate letter size files. This is the perfect drawer if letter size documents are all you need to store.
  • Legal size drawers accommodate legal sized files offering an additional three inches in width for larger record size.

Whatever your drawer choice, with the stacking ability of drawers, you can maximize your record storage space, save on retrieval time and eliminate box restacking—all while maintaining easy access to all your important records.
