Many businesses these days are turning to on-site shredding for security purposes and for a safer overall office environment. Our company can dispose of any unwanted paper materials together with hard disks or drives. Consider the legal implications of holding personal data and the damage to your businesses reputation if personal or sensitive information fell into the wrong hands. On-site shredding is also a great way to clear up unwanted paper documents around the work place.
Identity Theft and Fraud
Many more people these days are victims of identity theft and fraud. This crime occurs when fraudsters have enough access to your information such as your name, date of birth and current or previous addresses. The crime can take place whether the fraud victim is alive or deceased. With on-site shredding we can help prevent such crimes happening by destroying old or out of date information on-site at your workplace using secure shredding vehicles.
If identity theft has happened to you it can lead to a direct impact on your business or even personal life. It can make it hard to get bank loans, a new credit or debit card and a mortgage on your house until the matter is resolved. Its best you take the safer option and have any past or previous information which may pose a threat, destroyed and shredded by our company in the safest way possible.
On-Site and Off-Site Shredding
On-site shredding is a safe, secure and efficient method to dispose of your waste and customer information. On-site shredding begins with one of our mobile shredding trucks coming to your given location and shredding all confidential paper or computer drives. The included benefits of on-site shredding is the added security and clarity that your information is being shredded at that specific moment without being taken off-site. The added security is by far the most attractive factor to on-site shredding and therefore favoured by businesses with confidential customer information.
Improved Business Efficiency
Time saving is a big factor to consider when looking at the cost of shredding. If you are running an office environment and relying on a paper shredder, then you will likely be wasting hours of employee time, without guarantee that documents are being destroyed correctly. The shredding of documents takes valuable time. Instead of breaking down your information over a period of days it is broken down all in one go and then transported to be recycled. This makes a significant time difference and improves business continuity and efficiency.
