Another .02 -- I once had a client in a small town (with no off-site storage
service) that arranged with their bank for the tapes to be dropped in the
night depository.  Bank employees would place the tapes in the vault the next
morning, and the night operator would pick up the oldest rotation from the
bank on their way in to work.  Came in handy when they wanted to sack the
night operator, as the tapes weren't stored at the person's house.  It was
also cheaper to make a run to the bank than paying the "bring me the tapes I
just gave you" fee that most storage firms charge!
