Off site backups

I though maybe a serious post.  I was recently quoted £5,000 for offsite storage of backup media i.e. a couple of tapes.  I asked how much it was to retrieve it on demand – answer “well, that would depend”.  What is wrong the a bank safety deposit box, is it not secure enough?  ” I don’t think banks have fire suppression”   Me: “I don’t think this is a good deal” 

Small business get guys like this calling all the time, they don’t have a clue about SME business requirements.  What about an offer that suit our budget?  I love offsite storage, but I have not yet heard of one offer that has been properly positioned.  Have you?
