3 benefits of on-site shredding for your business 

Have you ever thought about getting in a professional shredding company to handle your shredding needs. Whether it’s disks, folders or just stacks of paper, you will want to make sure that you get your confidential material shredded in accordance with UK legislation, which states that you have a legal duty to destroy all secure documents.

 

Why you should use on-site shredding services

Handing over the responsibility of your shredding to a certified company, shredding it on-site where you can witness it, will bring you peace of mind. You can be confident that your shredding is taken care of sufficiently, letting you get on with your job, as we get on with ours. The pros of on-site shredding can be summed up in the 3 following benefits:

 

What should you be shredding? 

It is vital for your business to make sure that you are complying with UK legislation and shredding everything that you should be. Many businesses are still using paper despite the move to a more digital approach. Therefore, it is important that you are shredding your private documents securely to protect against security breaches and privacy issues. Shred-on-Site realize that this is a necessary part of your business and offer mobile vehicles to provide on-site paper shredding to provide a convenient solution for you.

 

Compliance with data protection

Because it’s a fundamental part of UK law to comply with the Data Protection Acts, your business must take it seriously. Document protection and secure disposal are at the heart of what Shred-on-Site do, which is why we are committed to 100% customer satisfaction and provide you with a Certificate of Secure Document Destruction on site following the shredding of your documents.

 

How to store your secure documents before shredding 

Onsite secure shredding services provide an alternative method to in-house paper shredding, with the added benefits of being both cost-effective and time-saving. Commercial mobile services can guarantee the secure destruction of your documents; however, it is important to keep these documents private before they are destroyed. Here are some ideas of how to do that:

#1 Secure containers

If your home or business is producing a fair amount of documents to shred, investing in a secure container is not a bad idea. These receptacles must not leave documents stored inside as accessible, so they should have something such as an angled slot or security plate. Shred-on-site offers lockable veneered consoles which guarantee no access to documents once stored inside. The slot is thin and located at the top of the receptacle, which is locked.
