How Will These Organizations Benefit?

There are many other benefits to using professional paper shredding services besides the ones we’ve discussed. Want to enlist shredding services but don’t know where to start? See our blog on what to shred for a great primer.

Here are 7 ways in which these organizations will benefit from professional paper shredding:

  1. Keep Your Business Edge – you risk losing your competitive edge when you shred papers yourself. This is because an employee can neglect the documents, which can lead to them falling into the wrong hands. You don’t want an outsider learning your business secrets.
  2. More Storage Space – storage space gets used up with too much paperwork. Not only will you have more storage space with less paperwork, but you also won’t need any bulky office shredding equipment.
  3. Peace Of Mind – you’ll feel confident in the secure destruction of your sensitive documents. There’s a camera on the mobile shredding truck so you can be sure that every document is destroyed. You’ll also receive an official certificate of destruction from us.
  4. Peace And Quiet – one obvious but overlooked benefit of professional paper shredding services is – no noise! And, no paper dust either.
  5. It Helps The Environment – shredded documents are taken to our warehouse and recycled.
  6. It’s Easier – you no longer need to prepare documents before they’re shredded, e.g. removing paper clips, rubber bands, staples or folders.
  7. It’s Cost Effective – following the logic of number 6, it’s actually cheaper to use professional paper shredding services than it is to waste your employees potential.
