How to Choose a Paper Shredding Service for Your Business

Are you looking for a new paper shredding service for your business?

Maybe you recently learned about all the ways improperly handled documents can lead to data breaches. You’ve looked into different types of shredding services and checked references and reviews from a few different document shredding companies. But there may be a few questions still lingering in your mind.

If this sounds like you, then you’ve come to the right place. Here we’ll address a few questions you might have as you’re comparing paper shredding costs and weighing different options. Keep reading to find out how to choose the right paper shredding service for your business.

Do You Need a One-Time Purge or Scheduled Shredding?

The first question you need to answer to find the right document shredding company is how much paper you need to dispose of and how often. If you have a lot of sensitive documents accumulated across several years, a one-time purge may be all you need. On the other hand, you may need scheduled shredding services to keep your active business safe.

Whichever service you need, Atlantic Shredding offers both.

Do You Have Paper to Dispose of Only, or Paper and E-Waste?

Paper documents aren’t the only things that can make your business vulnerable. Digital media can be a big risk factor as well. If you have hard drives to shred, workstations to recycle, or compact discs to destroy, you’ll want a service that can handle e-waste as well as paper.

Atlantic Shredding is equipped to properly dispose of e-waste as well as paper.

Do You Need Document Scanning or Shredding Only?

Maybe you want to transition from relying on paper to only using digital files. This choice is both good for the environment and your business’s security. However, that transition can be complicated and time-consuming, especially if you have a lot of important information on paper documents.

If this is your situation, you’ll want to find a paper shredding company that also offers document scanning services. Once again, Atlantic Shredding provides both services.

Do You Prefer On-Site or Off-Site Paper Shredding Services?

Last but not least, you will need to decide whether to have your documents shredded on-location at your business or taken away to be destroyed.

If you have a large number of documents that you need destroyed, it might be most convenient for a service to take them away to their facility for destruction. But if you need recurring scheduled visits, you ought to work with a service that will come and shred your documents on-site.

Atlantic Shredding has trucks with built-in paper shredders that we will bring to your place of business. But for larger paper loads, we can also bring your documents to dispose of safely in our own facility.
