One of the first questions you will ask yourself when you consider looking for an industrial shredder hire firm is "what is the difference?" Office shredders take up time, money, and valuable resources that could be used to grow your business, not to mention the risk of security breaches. Read on to find out more.
You may think that an office shredder is a small price to pay for ensuring the secure destruction of confidential papers. Apart from the initial purchase, little thought tends to be given to the total working costs of shredders.
Whilst some office shredders are sold as 'industrial shredders', they can only cope with a few sheets of paper per pass and staff spend hours breaking down files and removing staples. In the end staff are often unwilling to use them and show delight when they are jammed or out of service! That is when sensitive papers start to accumulate around your work place posing a security risk. In addition to this, they begin to take up valuable space and time.
As a professional shredding firm, Topwood can supply lockable confidenital waste bins containers called consoles, so you can efficiently dispose of confidential paperwork safely in the knowledge that they will be destroyed.
Office shredders do not make commercial sense and could actually put your business at risk…why?
