Helping this document company escape the burden of manually handling boxes

Who is Paper Escape?

Paper Escape offers document scanning, storage and shredding services for companies. It converts paper files into an electronic format, storing the digital files so that you can access them remotely at any time. The original paper files are securely stored or shredded, conforming to all privacy and confidentiality requirements.

The Challenge

Expanding business necessitated a move for this dynamic business into new premises: a move made possible by grant funding. Despite business continuing to grow with more documents waiting to be scanned and/or shredded, budget constraints meant that boxes had to be manually moved around the building.

Continued growth and consideration of personal safety, meant that this manual approach was no longer practical. It was clear that mechanical assistance was needed to deal with the sheer volume of boxes being moved from the ground floor loading bay to the 1st floor mezzanine level.  All lifting options were investigated including scissor lifts. A mechanical lift was deemed the best option due to the weight of the boxes needing to be moved.

The Solution

After a rigorous tendering proposal, the REACH25 lift from Advanced Handling was chosen as the ideal lifting solution. REACH25 it is a simple-to-use and efficient goods lift, perfect for moving boxes between floors. With a 250 kg capacity lifting up to 4,000mm, a short installation period, and simple one-touch controls that can be used without a person being present, REACH25 ticked all the boxes for our operations.

The Advanced Handling team was proactive throughout, from securing the initial quotation and answering all questions, through the site survey, and the very smooth installation process, every member of the team was professional and courteous.

The Benefits

Today, the Paper Escape team moves a higher quantity of boxes quickly and safely into and out of warehouses and between floors using their REACH lift. Fewer people are involved in this process and their workplace safety is enhanced.


“I would certainly recommend Advanced Handling to any company in a similar situation to us. The responses were quick and detailed from the very first enquiry. The REACH lift has introduced so many efficiencies into our business processes and I know that over a very short period of time, the lift will have paid for itself both financially and in terms of opportunities for additional business growth.”
