Secure Document Shredding


What's The Difference Between On-Site And Off-Site Shredding? What's Better?

Shredding is an important part of any company’s daily routine. It’s important to destroy all confidential files, but what is the best way? Sometimes simple office shredding doesn’t do the job so a more professional approach is required. In these cases, you should seek MicroShred who specialize in confidential file destruction.

Here are a few things you should be considering when it comes to shredding companies:

What’s the difference between on and off site shredding?

On-site shredding is considered the premium service that shredding companies offer. This method guarantees that you can physically see your confidential material being totally destroyed and not left to any prying eyes. MicroShred will come by at predetermined routine times (such as once a week, every day, twice weekly….) and perform all document destruction on premises while you are free to watch. MicroShred will also provide you with a locked box that has a secure one-way slot to insert documents. This guarantees that they aren’t viewed by anyone in the mean time between dropping them in the box and having them destroyed. Off-Site shredding is considered the economical alternative to on-site shredding. In this method, MicroShred will also leave you with the previously described locked box, but instead of the contents being destroyed at your location, they are taken to our facility and destroyed there.

What method is better and why?

It mostly depends on what is more important to you- however on-site shredding is typically considered the better method. When you send your confidential files to be destroyed at another location, there is always a chance that someone might be looking at your information. Of course a professional company will take destroying your files very seriously, but as a business owner, you should be absolutely confident that your information is confidential.

What can be shredded?
