Why choosing Shred-it® just makes sense
Industry-specific knowledge: Shred-it’s experts are knowledgeable about information security legislation and best practices to help protect your reputation.
On site shredding:
- Shred-it installs locked consoles in your facility. All documents that need to be destroyed are deposited in them.
- Only a Shred-it security-screened expert removes your documents from the locked consoles
- Your documents are destroyed inside our truck right at your location, and you can watch the process.
- After each service, we provide you with an official Certificate of Destruction for your records, as proof your documents were securely destroyed
Multiple shred sizes: Our proprietary cross-cut shredders securely and completely destroy your documents. We offer three levels of shred size for you to choose from based on your security needs.
Time and money savings: Your employees will have more time to spend on other priorities, and documents are not left unprotected while waiting to be shredded. Your confidential information is never sorted prior to shredding.

How to choose a shredding company
Did you know that more than 405 of the security breaches that happen inside businesses are unintentional? Employees are often uninformed about the type of information that needs to be protected. That is why it is very important that you get expert assistance when it comes to ensuring the privacy and safety of your business documents.
When making your decision, use the following checklist when looking for a document shredding provider:
- Has an excellent reputation and can provide references
- Understands laws, especially as they pertain to your industry
- Employs personnel that have undergone rigorous training and a background check
- Offers a security risk assessment
- Provides secure, locked consoles for documents prior to destruction
- Shreds all documents in a locked on site area where the document handler is the only one with access
- Gives you the option of watching the document destruction and provides a Certificate of Destruction
- Uses cross-cut shredders and can accommodate other media types such as CDs and disks
- Recycles all shredded paperwork
By following this checklist when you research potential document destruction providers, you will be able to make an informed choice about whom to use…and who may be a cut-rate provider that’s not really providing you a secure solution.
