How To Hire a Product Destruction Company

Product Destruction Company

In today’s business environment, there is continuous risk for identity theft and hiring a product destruction company can provide your company with adequate protection.

Hiring a credible product destruction company is not difficult, but it is important to choose one you can trust.
There are several other factors to consider as well:

Are They Using Advanced Shredding Technology?

The vendor you choose should be using the latest generation of equipment that’s both up to date and efficient. The product destruction company should be full-service and should also offer destruction of x-rays or other difficult information storage items.

Do They Have Proper Certifications?

Typically, all commercial shredding companies are certified with the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID). This ensures they operate with a high level of security and professional standards for their destruction processes. Certified companies must comply with all of the industry codes of ethics and requirements set by NAID.

Security of Their Staff

Employee security is important – you should feel confident that the company has hired ethical people to destroy your confidential documents. Ask about their hiring process and ask about the secure containers used for transporting the documents. Shredding medical documents are especially sensitive and must be handled differently because they must be destroyed in accordance with HIPAA standards.

On Site or Off-Site Shredding?

Most product destruction services offer on-site/mobile shredding service. With on-site shredding, you can be assured that you can monitor destruction and be sure confidential data being is not being viewed by others.

With off-site shredding, the vendor removes the documents from your business location, which puts them at risk of being lost, misplaced or falling into the hands of the wrong person.

It is recommended to hire a product destruction company that provides on-site and/or off site shredding as well as emergency shredding services.

Shredder Service

Today’s businesses can be at risk if they don’t properly handle the destruction of important, sensitive or proprietary information. To keep customer and employee information secure, a shredder service is the best solution.

Businesses should know what documents and other information storage items need to be destroyed.  Here’s a basic list to get you started:



  1. Employee Information:
  • Contact Information (Email address and phone numbers)
  • Employment Information
  • Health Documents
  • Contracts
  • Resumes
  1. Customer Information
  • Account Numbers
  • Credit history reports
  • Purchase orders
  • Invoices
  1. Legal and Financial Information
  • Account Statements
  • Budgets
  • Leases and or rental contracts
  • Sales forecasts
  • Confidentiality agreements
  • Product information
  • Design documentation
  • Patents

The best way to keep your company, employee, and client information secure is to hire a corporate document shredding service. These companies will efficiently destroy documents, discs and other items which contain private information.

Another reason to hire a shredder service to dispose of your sensitive documents is to protect your competitive edge. If, for instance, something as simple as even a patent application fell into unscrupulous hands, it could cost your company untold amounts of money.

Identity theft is a huge concern for all types of companies. There are new laws in place which could hold your company liable if an identity theft victim was compromised by sensitive information that was mishandled or not properly destroyed.
