Is a Professional Shredding Service the Right Choice for Your Business?

Document destruction is an integral part of most businesses’ data security, with shredding being the most popular way to destroy physical data.

In this post, we have put together some of the most common doubts and misconceptions about professional shredding services. If you are currently undecided regarding the use of a professional shredding service for your documents, below you will find all the information necessary for you to make a conscious decision.

I don’t think my company’s volume of business justifies signing up for a regular shredding service. Nevertheless, the shredding pile keeps getting bigger. How can I save by using a shredding service?

If your documents are usually disposed of by using your small office shredder, you are already increasing your costs by consuming valuable staff time. Not only that but having your own shredder adds to maintenance costs and may sometimes leave you stranded when the shredder breaks.

Furthermore, disposing of the shredded material in recycling bins or dumpsters is a serious liability. Anyone could get access to the remainders and leave with pieces of information you would want to remain confidential.

A secure paper shredding service takes care of all of these issues. Garda vetted, fully trained staff will collect your items and carry out their complete destruction following all certified procedures.

Isn’t it too expensive to use a certified Shredding service provider?

When you consider the importance of data protection reliability to a company’s reputation, and how a data breach can damage that reputation, the cost of the service may not even be considered an expense at all.

A certified shredding service provider will dispose of all your sensitive information, ensuring that all your confidential data is destroyed and cannot be recovered or end up in someone else’s hands.
