Some of our clients or potential clients think that DIY shredding at home or DIY shredding at the office are a cheaper and more effective option than hiring a professional shredding service. The reality is that nothing could be farther from the truth. Let me tell you why.
Using a home shredder or office shredder is extremely time consuming. Even industrial shredders will shred usually at most ten sheets at a time. Most home office shredders will only shred 4-5 sheets at a time. What is your time worth? What is your employee’s time worth. Can you shred at home? Can you shred at the office?
Employees task in office really should be revenue generating. Shredding 4-5 pieces of paper at a time is quite the opposite. Embassy Records Management provides in office recurring shred service and one time pick up shredding service throughout central Texas. We have a physical shred drop off location in College Station TX. We also have a physical shred drop off location in Waco TX. Our pick up shredding service footprint covers all of central Texas including Austin Texas and Houston Texas. In office shredding takes away from you employee’s valued daily responsibilities which, in turn, decreases overall productivity.
A few reasons are listed below as to why Embassy RMS is the most trusted and cheapest shredding option in town:
Our costs are lower and more affordable. An at home shredder usually will run you around $50 for a decent one at Office Supply stores or Wal-Mart. At home shredders must be oiled and maintained or eventually they will break. After countless hours of sitting in front of a cheap home shredder most clients lose interest and do a simple web search of: Shredding services near me.
Time is money.
Our drop off shredding one time service is $30 and includes up to 120 lbs. This amount could easily take you weeks to shred with a cheap office paper shredder. Trust the professional shredding service to help out and expedite that shredding. No need to remove paper clips or staples. We SHRED ALL THAT STUFF! No mess cleaning up after yourself at your home or office.
Data breaches and Identity theft.
The final product of a cheap office shredder is typically a long single cut strip that can easily be reconstructed or imaged and put back together. Embassy Shredders use cross cut shredding methods so there is no way to put any of it back together. In house shredders (and mobile on-site shred trucks) can be a security risk once those long strips of paper are tossed in the garbage.
Using a professional shredding service like Embassy RMS can alleviate all risk and worry knowing that your confidential data is safe and secure.
