Why trust Office Shredding?

Office Shredding is a locally operated family, woman-owned business that has been in the secure data destruction industry for over ten years. Shred Associates are all background checked and adhere to the most stringent training protocols in the industry.

Office Shredding offers both on-site and plant-based shredding services.

There are two types of shredding services. On-site shredding means all confidential materials are shredded on-site, at your location. Plant-based (off-site) shredding means that all materials are brought back to the company’s facility for shredding. If your organization requires that you witness the shredding process, then you should choose on-site shredding. If you’re looking for a more cost-effective option, then plant-based shredding is your best choice.

Office Shredding is AAA NAID Certified and endorsed for hard drive destruction.

The National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) is the watchdog of the shredding industry. They act as an independent auditor, checking a shredding company’s compliance in 22 critical areas, including everything from shred size to employee background checks. The NAID awards their highest rating, “AAA Certified,” to only a select few shredding companies that offer the highest level of information security. In fact, of the 77 shredding companies operating in Maryland, DC and Virginia, only 30 (39%) have been AAA Certified by NAID.

Office Shredding exceeds industry standards with general liability insurance coverage of $4,000,000.

It’s not uncommon to be offered $1,000,000 in general liability insurance, but the truth is that a minimum of $2,000,000 in protection is necessary for shredding customers.

Office Shredding offers both on-call and regularly scheduled shredding services.

On-call shredding means that you just call whenever you need service. There are no regularly scheduled pickups and no monthly fees. If you’re not sure you’ll generate enough paper for a monthly pickup, then on-call service is your best option. As for our scheduled shredding services, we come to you according to your needs and your desired schedule.

Office Shredding uses handheld PDAs that track usage for all your security containers on every single pickup.

Security containers that sit around without tracking usage could mean money down the drain. If a shredding company doesn’t track the amount of materials deposited into each bin, there is no way to tell if what you’re paying for is the right amount of service for you. You could be overpaying by as much as 15%. We gather this information so we can save you money by either adjusting your service frequency or removing unused containers.

Office Shredding uses four different types of shredders so that they can shred almost anything.

Our shredders can handle it all, including paper, plastic, microfilm, X-rays, CDs, hard drives, clothing and even many consumer and commercial products. Without these newer, more advanced shredders, someone would have to sift through each of your security containers and remove paper from binders and individually search for any of the above-mentioned items. Our process is less time-consuming and more secure.

Office Shredding offers an “On-Time or Shred for Free” Service Guarantee.

You can’t afford to hire a shredding company that misses your pickup day. Because that means your security containers may be overflowing, putting your confidential information at risk. If we miss your on-going service appointment, we’ll shred your confidential information for free!

Office Shredding guarantees your price in writing for the duration of your agreement.

With us, you’ll never have to worry about random price increases after you sign on. We’re honest about our pricing and never advertise low entry costs just to get your business.

Office Shredding provides our services at a competitive price with no hidden charges.

When you pay by the minute, you’re encouraging shredders to move slower which can end up costing way more than you bargained for. Office Shredding offers transparent pricing – we stick to our quotes, never charge by the minute, and have zero hidden costs.

Office Shredding guarantees, in writing, savings of 50% or more over your office shredder.

We understand that it can be difficult to rely only on a company’s word when signing up for ongoing service. That’s why we provide our low price guarantee in writing. We guarantee savings of 50% or more over your office shredder and we’ll even provide the tools to help you measure your results. If after 60 days you feel we’re not saving you 50% or more, we’ll remove our security containers and refund your money. We’re that confident we can save you money, and we want to put your worries at ease.
