This procedure is for preparing boxes of inactive records that are being sent to storage. RIMS also has a flowchart of this same process available for your reference.

Please note that for purposes of standardization, weight, and size constraints, all records, whether stored in departmental spaces or sent to storage outside of office spaces, should be packed in standard 10" x 12" x 15" Bankers boxes with lids and handles. These boxes can be ordered from the Office Depot/Office Max punch-out catalog through i-Buy (item #: P512770).
