If you run a business, you probably have a lot of sensitive information printed on paper. But what do you do when you need to get rid of those documents? Whether it’s because you have digitized your records or do not need to keep a set of printed pages for another reason, you can’t just toss them in the recycling bin. The risk of sensitive data being stolen or shared with the wrong person is just too high. The best solution is to shred those documents before you dispose of them. But what if you have hundreds of pages that you need to shred? You don’t have time to pull an employee to perform in-house shredding services.
The solution is shredding services from Peterborough Camera, Copies & More! Here are some of the advantages of having us do your shredding for you.
Save Time and Money
Paying someone else to do something for you? How does that save money? First of all, it saves you time, which allows you to run your business more efficiently. It also saves you from having to buy a shredder for your office. A quality shredder that can handle high quantities of paper is a big investment, and most people think their budget is better spent elsewhere. It is much simpler to drop off your shredding weekly, monthly, or as often as you need it. What’s more, at PCCM, the more you shred, the more you save. We charge for our shredding services by the pound. The more you bring to us at once, the less you have to pay per pound for shredding.
Be Confident in Your Security
Outside of professional shredding services, there are three types of shredders you can buy: strip-cut, cross-cut, and micro-cut. Strip-cut shredders cut the documents into long thin strips. If someone were motivated, they could reassemble those documents relatively easily. With a cross-cut shredder, your documents would be tough to reassemble, but not impossible. A micro-cut shredder basically turns your documents into confetti. But how the documents are shredded is not the only security concern. You also don’t want anyone to know that there might be sensitive data in your trash. With professional shredding, the shredded documents are picked up at random intervals and are guaranteed to be destroyed.
