Getting the best in off-site records storage

Abstract

A fictional warehouse manager and convicted criminal describes his substandard warehouse, and asks pertinent questions about records management. He recommends records inventories and retention schedules, and warns against procrastination in keeping such tools up to date. He discusses warehouse upkeep and advises readers to watch for water ingress and moisture damage. Security and fire control systems should be in place. Customers should include their terms in a contract with the vendor.
