Transportation Services

Your business demands that you are able to access the right information when and where needed - safely, securely, and accurately. To that end, Iron Mountain's transportation services allow you to tailor both the service timeframe as well as the exact pickup/delivery point for each request.

Records Management

Transportation of Cartons from your site to Iron Mountain is normally performed using the Regular Pickup service. You can request a Rush Pickup - Business Day service if you have a need for faster pickup.

Preparation for Pickup

Prior to the arrival of the Iron Mountain representative scheduled to pickup Cartons or Files, you need to have packed all Files returning to Iron Mountain into Cartons or Packages. For new deposits for storage, you should affix an Iron Mountain barcode label to each Carton and complete all required forms. Please make sure your items are ready, as unprepared Items may result in a charge for Wait Time.

Delivery Services

There are two types of regular delivery services, Half Day Delivery and Next Day Delivery. The transportation fees for these service levels differ based upon the service timeframe requested.

In those cases where you need service outside our regular delivery, you may request a Rush Service. Rush options include Rush Delivery - Business Day or Rush Delivery - Weekends/Holidays/After Hours. These expedited service options will ensure that you receive your requested information in a faster timeframe.

Note that when a rush transportation service is selected, the Retrieval service charge that accompanies the Trip Charge is elevated to a Rush Retrieval service as well. For more explanation of this, please see the service definitions in the Glossary.

Certain transportation services may be completed outside of Business Hours. Iron Mountain makes best efforts to complete Transportation Services as scheduled. Traffic, weather, and other conditions beyond our control may prevent us from meeting the scheduled transportation timeframe.

At Iron Mountain, our primary focus is on providing accurate, timely service that safeguards your important information.

Iron Mountain has adopted security procedures and technology to help secure your records in transit. This includes our InControl™ technology platform. InControl ensures the protection of information while it is in transit with patent-pending security, real-time tracking, and auditable chain of custody.

We ask that you cooperate with our representatives as our procedures require the acknowledgement of each transportation service by signing our scanners or forms upon completion of the service. Iron Mountain cannot be responsible for transported Items unless receipt is confirmed through this process.

Because we realize that quality employees drive quality service, Iron Mountain screens our representatives through background checks. Transportation services are normally performed by Iron Mountain personnel using company vehicles. However, we also utilize third party transportation services.
