What to Look for in a Paper Shredding Company

As the premier paper shredding company in the industry, we get asked plenty of questions.  One of our favorites – besides, ‘should I shred my documents?’ – YES! – is:

What do I look for when selecting a paper shredding company?

having been in the document shredding industry for nearly 30 years, we’ve learned a heck of lot.  Though really, choosing the right paper shredding company boils down to several things.

  1. Security – Is your document destruction company certified by NAID?
  2. Reliability – Will your paper shredding actually come when you call or do they miss pickups, regularly?
  3. Trustworthiness – If your company has to miss a pickup due to weather, traffic, or anything, really – are they giving you a heads up ahead of time with a phone call?
  4. Flexibility – How flexible is your shredding company’s scheduling?  Can they work with you to schedule that extra pickup you need during tax season?  Do they offer both off-site on and on-site shredding service?
  5. Cost-Effectiveness – suggest to meet with your sales rep at minimum once a year.  Are you getting the best value for your paper shredding service?
  6. Local – Choosing local always helps.  It assists in ensuring that the five items above are indeed met.  Besides, isn’t always nice to look face-to-face at your good-looking paper shredding rep?

Oh, we also suggest looking for a secure paper shredding company that has a customer service team on-site.  That way whenever you call, you can guarantee you’ll be talking to someone local who can personally handle your concerns – whether it’s finding out what time a shred truck will be at your office or if you have general questions on an invoice.  A local customer service team will be able to assist you much more quickly than one overseas.
