The On-site Shredding Process

Every business, large or small, generates sensitive documents. While you might not be harboring classified government documents, you will inevitably have records of employees’ social security numbers, bank accounts, and other important personal information. As a business owner, you have a responsibility to protect information that may compromise your business and the people who keep it running.

One of the simplest and most effective ways to protect confidential information is to hire a shredding company. A shredding company can securely dispose of all sensitive materials, offering you peace of mind and protection at the same time.

Why hire a shredding company?

It might seem unnecessary to hire a team of professionals to tear up paper for you. However, much more goes into the process than many people realize. Disposing of documents on your own is inherently risky; when you don’t have the time to commit to the shredding process from start to finish, there’s a lot of potential risk for information to get out. On an individual level, people often shred documents erratically, and it’s very difficult to be sure that everything that needs to be shredded is being shredded.

A document that isn’t properly disposed of can lead to massive problems down the line. Identity theft is a growing problem, with an estimated $16.8 billion stolen via identity theft and thirty percent of Americans experiencing some form of a data breach in 2017 alone. In many cases, all it takes is one stray document in the wrong hands to kickoff the long and painful process of reclaiming an identity.

Many offices need to have large amounts of documentation shredded simultaneously, and your typical office can’t handle large loads like this. As professional shredders, we can take on even very large amounts of documentation. We also don’t require you to remove staples, binding, paperclips, or any other appendages before your documents are destroyed—our machines can handle your shredding needs without any preparation on your part. We ensure that your shredding process will be as secure and convenient as possible.

When you hire a professional company like Shredding Unlimited, you can rest easy knowing that your sensitive data will be completely and thoroughly destroyed when you need it to be. What’s more, our technology makes it possible to shred your documents more inexpensively than would generally be possible on your own. When you work with us, you’ll never have to deal with the worry in the back of your mind that a piece of information might be loose where it isn’t meant to be. The security and convenience of our shredding program will keep your company safe and running smoothly.

What is the shredding process?

Our employees will never look at or extensively handle your sensitive information. Once we’ve collected your materials from one of our free containers, it is immediately sent through our shredding truck. Our shredding truck operates on a no-touch mechanism. The lid to the documents container will not open until it has been tipped into the shredder, in order to give you the greatest possible peace of mind. Our shredding truck will destroy documents much more thoroughly than an individual could do on their own, or with a small office shredder. Your data will be completely safe from unfriendly eyes. We can also offer you the ability to see your documents being safely destroyed through an external viewing monitor.

Because our shredder is run directly through our truck, it is extremely powerful. It can easily shred thick stacks of paper, whether or not those stacks include any staples, binding, paperclips, etc. There’s no need to sort through your materials to be shredded when you’re using a shredder as powerful as ours. Thanks to the storage space of our shredding truck, we can also handle very large orders in a single trip, all done with greater speed and efficiency than the majority of other shredding services on the market.

We are also proud to offer our recycling services for your destroyed paper materials. Once the documents have been destroyed, you can count on us to do our part for the environment and general sustainability by recycling your products. We place great importance on recycling because of all the resources it helps to protect for the future.
