3 Reasons Why You’ll Love Residential Shredding

Every day, we bring valuable information into our homes. Whether it’s contained on a throwaway piece of junk mail or a child’s report card, our information is still valuable. That value doesn’t go away after it’s discarded in the trash, which is why dumpster diving is still a concern, even in 2020. However, that presents a problem: when you need to throw your information away, how can you guarantee that no one will hunt through your trash can – or the public dump – to get it?

Our shredding services aren’t just used by businesses; there’s a good chance that someone in your neighbourhood benefits from professional document shredding. Today, we’re going to look at the top 3 reasons why our customers love residential shredding (and why we’re willing to bet that you’ll love it, too).

You Can Tailor Your Service to Your Amount of Papers

A common misconception is that a shredding service is a one-type-fits-all approach, and that couldn’t be farther from the truth. No matter how many (or how few) papers you have to shred, there’s a method of shredding perfectly suited to accommodate both your volume of papers and your pocketbook.

Mobile Service

If you have a backroom to clean or a corner of the room completely swamped by old documents, you can request a mobile shredding appointment. One of our top-of-the-line mobile shredding trucks will drive right to your front door, and our uniformed technician will handle the transfer of your documents directly into the internal shredding machine. 

You’ll be able to watch in real-time as your documents are shredded, and once everything has been cross-cut into tiny, irretrievable pieces, you’ll receive a Certificate of Destruction that officially verifies that we shredded your items according to the latest privacy regulations.

Drop-Off Shredding

Let’s say you only have a small box of documents or a couple of papers you’d rather not throw in the trash. You don’t have to ask for a full mobile shredding appointment to process these smaller batches. Instead, you can take advantage of our drop-off shredding service. It’s priced to reflect the smaller shredding volume, and our convenient drive-up-and-drop-off model means that it’s a short stop, and then you can continue with the rest of your day.

Enjoy the Confidence of Total Security

With a residential shredding service, you never have to take it on faith that your documents are well and truly gone for good. You’ll be able to either see your documents shredded or watch as they’re accepted by a member of our uniformed staff. You’ll also receive a Certificate of Destruction, no matter how your papers are processed. 

Gone are the nights worrying whether someone will find your documents in the dump, or if a scrap of your old tax returns will be picked up by an unsavoury character. You can rest confidently and comfortably in the knowledge that your documents have been shredded according to precisely the same requirements used by government institutions like the IRS.

What Should You Be Shredding?

  • Report Cards
  • Outdated Forms of Identification
  • Receipts
  • Utility Bills
  • Mail Containing Your Name or Address
  • Documents Containing a Personal Signature
  • Unneeded Health Records

An Affordable & Convenient Way to Discard Documents

Another common misconception is that professional document shredding is too expensive to bother with on a residential scale. Again, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. At the time of writing this post, we have a special deal available to shred 15lbs of paper for only $10, including a recyclable Seal n’ Shred bag. The entire bag goes straight into our shredding machine, which means there’s no chance that anyone will ever see your documents after you seal the opening. 

Document shredding also takes a fraction of the time it’d take to process the papers on your own; our shredding machines can chew through 133 pounds of paper every minute. That means that most residential customers can get back to their day in fifteen minutes or less.
