What kind of shredders work better than the rest?

Why choosing professional shredding services might benefit your home office or business?

Some of my readers work in small offices or large businesses or even out of their home office. All of our clients know what a key role document shredding plays in keeping your business safe and secure from data breaches and fraud prevention. I am often asked what type of shredder is the best? For small in-home shredding a home shredder will generally do just fine. Bonsaii shredders are cheap and efficient and would be my recommendation if you just want to keep up with a single family home for mail and financial statements.

Large shredding jobs are quite different. For those inquiries my answer is always to trust a local shredding service to handle your document shredding needs. A professional shredding company can oftentimes tackle box shredding or credit card shredding projects cheaply and timely.

In home shredders are mostly continuous cut shredders. These types of home office shredders are the least secure. A cross cut shredder is by far the best. Cross cut shredders shred in a rectangular format that makes it almost impossible for an identity thief to use your data for a data breach. Micro cut shredders are even more secure but way more expensive.

In home shredders are not really meant for multimedia shredding. A professional shredding service can shred any type of media including:

· Hard drive shredding

· Hard drive destruction

· Laptop disposal

· iPhone disposal

· Cell phone disposal

· Computer disposal

Most in home shredders can shred a few credit cards but usually will begin to overheat and then require a cooling period before shredding more paper or media. Most home shredders require staple removal or paper clip removal. A professional shredding company will shred all of these materials which require much less labor on your part. Time is money as they say and home shredders are the opposite of efficient.
