    Shredding – What’s Best For My Business?

    Shredding – What’s Best For My Business? 

    Do you know what’s best for your business when it comes to shredding? Who should handle your shredding? An off-site company, a mobile company, or having staff shred internally? If you require shredding services for your company it’s extremely important that you find the best and most secure solution, as well as the most cost-effective solution for your shredding needs. In this article, we will compare some of the main types of shredding services so that you can enjoy greater advantages for your company.
    Making Shredding a Staff Responsibility:  Allowing specific staff members at your business to provide shredding services is never economical, especially when you are refocusing an employee and pulling them from a different department. Unless you have your own plant shredders, the machines often break, are not meant to handle much volume, and are a constant source of frustration and cost. Not to mention, is your shredded paper going in the garbage can? Getting rid of the shredded paper is a large task, shredded paper expands to 5 times its normal volume. A dedicated shred company will always recycle shredded paper. Allowing in-house employees for shredding tasks also increases the risk for security problems. While it is convenient to have shredding services on-site and always available, it’s often not worth the extra expense or the risks.
    Hiring An On-Site/Mobile Company for Shredding: On-site companies can come with all of the appropriate equipment required for shredding. This often involves a bit of a disruption for your business as you will have to find space for them to work or an area in your parking lot where they can set up and provide service. Extra costs are also relatively expensive for the convenience of having a truck show up to handle shredding, and you may face multiple contract fees, fuel fees, and have to meet a monthly minimum. This often means sensitive documents have to sit around waiting for your service appointment and the time when the company can come.

    Hiring an Off-Site Shredding Service: Off-site shredding services have become one of the more popular choices for many companies because they are extremely low-cost and offer more flexibility. Documents can be picked up daily, and are much more flexible based on the need of a business. Also, documents are destroyed when they are delivered. A reputable, established off-site shred company should provide locked containers to store confidential documents until pickup. They’re usually professional looking, locking cabinets with a convenient paper slot. This enhances security, lowers cost, and ensures that optimal customer service is delivered for all of your shredding needs. Off-Site shred companies also work directly with recycling programs, so you can be sure your office is doing what’s best for the environment.

    As you can see, while there are several options for shredding your office documents, hiring an off-site company is almost always the best bet. Allowing a professional company to manage this area of your business takes one headache of your plate, and provides peace of mind you can count on.
