Why should I schedule professional on-site shredding?

While you might think that you can handle document shredding without the help of a professional, the fact is that many documents can be difficult and/or time-consuming to shred in traditional office shredders. This is especially true if documents are left to pile up, which can lead to hours spent standing over the shredder.

The professional shredding teams at Secure On-Site Shredding use commercial-grade shredders that can shred hundreds of pounds of paper in a matter of minutes. With us, you never have to worry if your papers are shredded enough, and you never have to spend precious hours shredding them yourself.
