Since March 2020, the business world has also started working in a different way. Working from home and the sharing of digital documents have resulted in empty offices and a different approach to storage. Merak, founded in 1977, helps more than 2000 customers to optimise their daily operations. You can read below how we can help you.
How long do you have to keep your invoices? Or your personnel register? And what about bankruptcies? You should take these legal retention periods into account, because in some cases you are required to keep record of business correspondence. For years, Merak has been providing a clear, up-to-date overview of how long you need to keep which documents. From accounting and social documents to correspondence with lawyers. You can download our recently updated overview for free.Look up the retention periods
With Merak’s help, you can both keep your archive well organised and have 100% certainty that no one can misuse your confidential information. We destroy documents discreetly and unrecognisably, fully in line with the DIN standard.
In this way we also help you to meet the GDPR guidelines. The GDPR guidelines of "the ability to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of processing systems and services on an ongoing basis" apply not only when you use or retain this data, but also when you want to destroy it.
There are some documents that you are simply not allowed to destroy. With Merak’s solutions you can be sure that your documents are stored under the best conditions. By archiving externally, you can make smarter use of the space in your office. Hundreds of other self-employed professionals, SMEs and companies have already opted for a simpler external archive solution at Merak. But what if you need a certain document again? Not a problem for Merak. Our courier service is available 24/7 to deliver your physical archives. And via scanning-on-demand we can also deliver your documents digitally.More about archiving with Merak

These days, almost everything is done digitally. When it comes to the mountain of papers that offices sometimes have to find space for, that is a welcome development. Adopt the new way of working: if your industry allows it, we can scan the relevant documents for you. Your digital library will be accessible 24/7 and protected with a personal token, and will show who has requested which documents, and when.More about digitising documents
Documents are one thing, but what about furniture and other objects, such as your machinery or exhibition materials? You can count on Merak for this too. Our storage containers are available in various sizes, but customisation is also possible. We store your material in a thermally controlled and monitored warehouse. You only pay for the space that you actually use.More about box storage
