Selecting The Right Shred Service For You

There are many different offerings in the shred industry. Different services that have been designed to cover different needs can leave you wondering what is right for you when first venturing into document shredding. To help show you the way, let’s examine the different services, and how to decide if it is best for you.

What Are Your Needs?

The first thing you need to figure out is what exactly your shredding needs are.

First comes the prospect of reviewing the number of records you produce, and in what kind of time frame they are being produced. Are you a business or a resident? This is largely semantic, as the services are pretty much the same for both, but it will provide some insights into the location needing a visit.

Are you planning on shredding some bulk documents once, or do you imagine needing recurring service because you produce a lot of records? If you are only producing a small number of documents over a long period of time, then chances are you don’t need to use and recurring service. By contrast, larger businesses who are producing records regularly will need recurring shredding to stay on top of things.

If you figure you are making a lot of records, or even if it’s slower accumulation, you should think about a secure way of storing said documents while they are waiting for shredding. The best way to do this is with secure shred bins. These bins are designed to allow papers in and prevent them from being taken out until shredding is happening.

Available Services

Once your needs have been figured out, it is time to browse the service catalogue. These services are tailored to meet any need you might have.

One-Time Purge

As the name implies, this is for when you only need to shred once, or every now and then. It is perfect for smaller amounts of documents and even larger quantities.

Scheduled Shredding

Shredding is a big responsibility, and producing large quantities of records increases that. To stay on top of that need, setting up a regular timetable for shredding will keep you in compliance.

If for one reason or another you’d rather not have services come to your location, then you can come to our secure facility and drop the records off to us.

Simply decide what you need to be done, and you can easily get it. Keeping up with shredding is not, and there is a service out there for you.
