Guide to Moving Your Heritage Assets

July 29, 2021 • History Factory

So you’re moving into a new facility—great! Maybe it’s to a different location—hopefully, a bigger or newer place for your teams to work. Or maybe you’re consolidating facilities into fewer locations and bringing people together.

Regardless of why you’re moving, you’re bound to face the question of what to do with your historical assets: valuable documents, digital records, product prototypes, videos and any other items related to your company’s history.

These assets may make up an archives. Or they may be stuffed in a cupboard, or trapped on a hard drive or server. No matter what, you still probably need to move them from point A to point B.

But wait! Remember that these assets might be priceless and irreplaceable—part of your company’s heritage that could be used to help your business in a multitude of ways. That box is not just an ordinary file box, just as moving a box of books is not the same as moving a sculpture or painting. Our philosophy is to preserve institutional memory, so the enterprise has the value of the past to improve the future.

We’ve put together this short guide to help you figure out how. History Factory has managed both small and large archives relocation efforts, across the country and around the globe. We hope you find this helpful.
