Tonight I am wearing my archivist hat! When you go to any Archives you will often see "gray" boxes that house the documents in file folders. Both those "flip top" boxes, and the file folders themselves, are "acid free" items and are very, very expensive by anyone's standards. Boxes can average $15.00 - $50.00 (and more - depending upon size and quality) for each box! A box of 100 acid free file folders costs about $50.00 per box. If you want to check out the prices might I recommend the Carr Maclean Library and Archival supply website - which is based in Canada. Carr Maclean is one of the industry leaders. So, there is much more than the just the cost of the labour in moving of the documents. Hey, when I moved my residence here in Toronto about nine years ago, it cost me close to $1,000 then to move about 10 blocks, and we packed most everything ourselves! Just providing some facts to consider ... Cheers! Brian J. Brian Gilchrist, 1969 - 2004: 35 Years Researching at The Archives of Ontario.
