Think a confidential shredding service is an expense you could do without? Think again...
All businesses produce confidential documents. Such documents are confidential for good reason, such as they contain commercially or financially sensitive data that could prove highly damaging if it got into the wrong hands.

It’s quicker than doing it yourself
No-one enjoys paper shredding. It’s the sort of task that’s put off for as long as possible – potentially forever. So make sure it gets done by using a shredding service. They’ll come to your premises, collect your documents, and shred them safely and securely. They’ll even look after the waste disposal, recycling the shredded paper for you – great if you’re concerned about environmentally friendly practices.
It’s cheaper than doing it yourself
It’s natural to assume that shredding your own documents would be cheaper than employing someone else to do it. But, surprisingly, this is not necessarily the case. For example, Ecoshred’s shredding services are, on average, 17% less expensive than shredding your documents yourself. Save time and save money? It’s a no-brainer!
The potentially high cost of not shredding
Of course, you might think the cheapest, quickest way to save money on shredding confidential documents is to just not bother to do it. But this is a risk that’s not worth taking. Not only does it leave you open to potential fraudulent activity, if, as a result of failing to destroy sensitive data you’re found in breach of the Data Protection Act, you could be liable for a £500,000 fine. Ouch.
Shredding on your terms
If you’re a smaller business, you may not need a regular shredding service – one-off visits as and when you need it may do the job. For larger businesses that regularly produce swathes of confidential documents, a regularly-scheduled service is a more effective way of keeping on top of your document shredding. Remember, the more often you shred, the less chance there is of your sensitive information getting in the wrong hands.
