Document Storage & Shred

Boxes and Labels

Our storage program is designed around the standard 12" x 10" x 15" storage/banker's box. This allows us to take full advantage of the available space, and ensures that the boxes are sturdy and suitable for storage. At the bottom of this page, you will find several examples of boxes available for purchase through UCD Buy. (Note: storage of non-standard boxes is only available by special arrangement; additional fees may apply. Please contact us for more information.)

The First Two are Free!

When you open a new storage account with us, you have the option of receiving your first four boxes for free. Simply mark the checkbox on your account application.

Box Reuse

We will occasionally have used boxes available at no charge, subject to availability. If you are interested in using these pre-owned boxes, please contact us to check for availability.


Every box in the storage program must have its own label. At a minimum, the label must contain the following information:

  • Box Title
  • Box Number*
  • Department Name
  • Proposed Destruction Date (if applicable)

*Note: Please use a unique number.

For your convenience, we have a PDF label template that you can fill in and print. The template is suitable for 2" x 4" labels, such as Avery Eco-Friendly A548163 (available through AggieBuy).
