Welcome to Box-it North


Document storage, shredding and scanning services for businesses in the North East and Cumbria

If your business is based in Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, Durham or Cumbria and you’re looking for a secure and efficient way to store, retrieve and destroy your archive documents, we can help!

Box-it North is based in Newcastle and offers a range of document management services to businesses in the North East, including secure document storage, confidential shredding, and scanning and document digitisation.

With the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the manner in which you store and destroy your commercially sensitive and personally identifiable information is more important now than ever before, and a professional document management company, such as Box-it North, can help you to become compliant.

Whether you have a small business with a one-off scanning or shredding project, or a larger organisation with an ongoing document management requirement, we can offer a full range of document management services, from Secure Document Storage and Scanning, to Cataloguing and Indexing, and Confidential Shredding and Document Destruction. We work with businesses in a variety of sectors, with particular expertise in storing and managing solicitors’ files, medical records, HR documents and sensitive financial information.

At Box-it North, we believe client satisfaction is paramount and our customer service is second to none. If you choose Box-it North for your records management requirements, you’ll have the peace of mind that your documents are being stored professionally and responsibly, with easy access as and when required.

How We Keep Your Records Secure:

Our customers’ confidential records are stored in environmentally-controlled storage centres, fully protected by intruder and fire alarm systems. A comprehensive audit trail of each file and box’s movement in and out of storage assists with demonstrating GDPR compliance. Documents are transported using our own fleet of vehicles, which have built-in trackers. Our professional drivers are fully trained, DBS and CTC checked and all carry photograph ID badges.

Why Use Box-it North?

As part of the industry-leading national Box-it Group of document management specialists, we are experts in the storage, scanning and shredding of confidential records. Operating for over 10 years, we provide records management services to businesses throughout the North East and Cumbria and have built a reputation that is second-to-none for excellent communication, proactive customer service and fast retrieval of records when required.

We’ll free up your office space by collecting and securely storing your archives offsite, whilst allowing you to access them quickly and efficiently whenever needed. Through our ‘time expired’ service, we’ll remind you when stored archives have reached the end of their retention period, and (following approval from you) destroy them responsibly at the end of their retention period – keeping your records safe from cradle to grave, whilst also minimising your storage costs.

Through our scan on demand and archive scanning services, we can also help you to transition to a paperless or paperlite office. What’s more, through our electronic document management system, Omnidox, we can help you improve document workflows and facilitate remote working. Our suite of records management services will help you to ensure the safety and security of your archives, whilst assisting with GDPR compliance.

Our Commitment to the Environment

We have a clear commitment to the environment and continually strive to reduce our carbon footprint. Our archive boxes are made from recycled card, and our secure document shredding service results in the vast majority of your paper waste being recycled. A tree is planted for every 500 sacks or boxes of paper recycled.
