Underground Vaults & Storage understands the role business records play for your company and security of that information is our top priority. For this reason, our facilities are equipped with state of the art security systems. Three of our facilities are located deep underground with limited physical access. Additionally, through authorized access, you control who can access the information stored at our locations.
The difference between a records information management company and a storage facility is service AND security. We are available to service you 24/7/365. Allow Underground Vaults & Storage to be an extension of your staff, part of your team, a partner in reducing your operating cost and improving your business work process efficiencies, without adding salaries, benefits or continuing education to your budget. Your internal staff concentrates on improving your core business, while we provide the professional information management services you require.
Some types of records require special environmentally controlled conditions that are both unique and expensive to provide. You don’t need to tie up your assets and expensive office space, let us do that for you. Underground Vaults & Storage is constantly reviewing new methods and technologies to keep your records safe, secure, and accessible to you.
We know how important it is to have an emergency disaster plan to safeguard your information. Should the worst happen, a good plan will help you move quickly to recovery. UV&S is accustomed to these needs and we can help you to meet those special requirements, develop disaster plan and get your company back up and running in a quick recovery time.

We recently posted about the secure storage of valuable baseball cards. A recent story in the Salina Journal brought the issue of secure storage front and center. A break-in at a Salina storage unit resulted in one person being robbed of “a collection of about 15,000 football, baseball and basketball cards valued at $3,000, and a stamp collection valued at $2,000.”
We hear these types of horror stories in the secure storage business and we see it as our mission to help people prevent this from happening to their valuables. Our hearts go out to the victim of this crime.
For the rest of us, this should serve as a reminder to review our storage plans and make sure that we are protected.

This week we are catching up with our friends from the Association of Moving Image Archivists at the AMIA Annual Conference in Austin, Texas. Jeff Ollenburger and Kerry Sue Underwood will be in booth #14 November 16 through 18.
We will be joined by our partners at 2G Digital Post. You won’t want to miss the demonstrations of 2G’s patented 6D Virtual Library system.
The conference schedule is packed with great sessions on moving image preservation and archiving. These are right up our alley. We’ve grown to secure more film and sound elements than any company in the Western Hemisphere. It’s a wrap…send it to the Salt Mine, has become a familiar phrase in the film and television industry.
Film and sound archiving is a very specialized field. There are many factors to consider when developing an archiving plan, including:
- Overall cost of storage
- Ease of retrieval or alternative access
- Disaster protection
- Theft protection
- Environmental barriers to preservation
Want to learn more? Stop by and talk with Jeff and Kerry Sue, or drop us a line.

There were plenty of heroes in this year’s World Series, and that has us thinking about baseball cards. A few superstar players may see their card stock rise after an exciting seven-game nail biter. Congratulations to the World Champion St. Louis Cardinals.
Many may not know that baseball cards are one of the more unique items we store here at Underground Vaults & Storage. Like any item, proper storage of baseball cards is important and can help protect your investment, especially if you have one of these top ten most valuable cards.
If you were lucky enough to have any of these in your collection, you’d certainly take great precautions when storing them. The fact of the matter is that most businesses have valuable records that are vital to their operations and these records deserve the same protection you’d want for a T206 Honus Wagner. Remember, whether your protecting baseball cards or business records, basic storage best practices apply. Consider the space needed, environmental concerns, your access needs and the value of your items when determining whether to store them on or off-site.

We’re looking forward to seeing our old friends and making new ones. Hope to see you there!

Insurance can be a real lifesaver when something is stolen, lost or destroyed, but there are things that can be lost that can’t be replaced with a fat insurance check.
The movies would have us think that it takes grappling hooks, pulleys and an acrobatic romp through a laser grid to make off with priceless artifacts. The reality is quite a bit more mundane.
Throughout history, great works of art have gone missing, never to be seen again. And it doesn’t take an acrobat, barbarian invasion or centuries of poor recordkeeping, just ask the city of San Francisco or the collectors who lost items in the 2004 Momart fire.
The security of the location where art is stored is at least as important as the security when it is on display. That includes security against natural and manmade disasters as well as security against theft. It also includes security against the elements, as plain old air and humidity can cause deterioration.
If you have questions about the best way to store your valuable artifacts, give us a call here at UV&S. We’d be happy to discuss your specific needs and make a recommendation.
