"Once again, I need to express my sincere appreciation to your company for coming thru in a big way yesterday when we transferred a lot of charts out of our old clinic building to your business. Adam, as he has been in EVERY interaction I’ve had with him since we first interviewed you and him in 2014 when looking for a new records storage company to partner with, was phenomenal. He is a great worker, an honest and positive man, and a joy to work with…Thanks for partnering with us and serving as our medical records storage company.”

— Shawn

"Thanks—I must say you (and Ryan) give some of the best service ever!"


"I would like to leave an e-Comment Card for Mr. Mike MacDonald. During the past nine months of my employment as the new Receptionist/Administrative Assistant at XXXX, Inc., I have had the wonderful privilege to meet Mr. MacDonald. His brief visits to drop off blank tape cartridges, as well as pick up any outgoing tape cartridges, have been so very pleasant, welcoming and professional! We welcome him anytime, and want to express our appreciation for his courteous and continued customer service!"

-Pa V.


"I’d like to pass on a positive comment about Kev and Adam: They did GREAT work this week. They worked hard, efficiently, and professionally and they did the work with a positive attitude. They communicated with me throughout the week superbly and they always let me know the process and their work schedule. I am very picky when it comes to choosing companies to do business with and my expectations on service and product are very high. I expect a lot (ask my children…or better yet, my wife!). Kev and Adam met my standards and I’m very glad we hired your company.

I did express my gratitude to Adam and Kev but I wanted to let you know of how things went this week. Kevin and Adam are great people. As a new customer of yours, my experience so far has been extremely positive."

-Children's Medical Clinic
