Shredding & Document Destruction Pricing

Expert Tip

When considering document destruction services, price should be only one of the factors that influence your decision. It's equally important to understand the cost of a security breach to your business and to make sure you select an experienced shredding company to help protect your customers, employees and business.

What’s more important than price? These are some of the issues you should take into consideration when evaluating the right budgetary and security fit.

Here’s a checklist you should keep in mind when choosing a reliable shredding provider:

  • Security – Is there a secure chain-of-custody process for shredding confidential documents, whether done at a secure facility or on site at your premises?
  • Expertise – Have the personnel undergone rigorous training and background checks? Are they knowledgeable about privacy laws? Do they offer a risk assessment?
  • Reputation – Does the service provider have a long history with no security breaches and can the company provide references?
  • Tailored Solution – Make sure that the service you receive meets your specific business needs.

There are various pricing options available depending on how often you need a shredding service and what information you need to safely destroy:
