3. Why not do it myself?
Great Question! There are a plethura of reasons why companies – large and small, as well as residents should trust their information destruction needs to DataShredder. Here are just a few:
Businesses need to protect against external as well as internal threats. Most often, the task of shredding is delegated to one of the companies lowest paid employees. You’ll want to ask yourself how secure your customer database is in the hands of an employee who’d have a lot to gain by selling it to your fiercest competitor. Or, how appropriate it is for your entire staff’s payroll records or trade secrets to be in the hands of your least compensated employee.
How valuable is your time? You (or one of your employees) could spend time removing staples, paper clips, preparing documents and then finally shredding them – or, that time could be better allocated to business activities that will actually expand or enhance your own business. Let’s say you pay an hourly wage for an administrative assistant to handle the shredding in your office. Or, perhaps your company has each employee shred their own material with a small shredder under their desk – which means your most valuable human resources are not generating revenue for your business. The time it takes to prepare the documents and perform the actual shredding, DataShredder’s Scheduled Service could have easily paid for itself!
The cost of appropriate office shredding equipment: Commercial/Office grade shredders start at over $1,000 and can climb as high, with maintenance and service, to $3800. It’s true, you can purchase a paper shredder at your local retail store for under $50, but anyone who has ever used a shredder, such as this, for anything more than their Mastercard bill can tell you, in an office environment, this simply will not do. And, all office shredders, regardless of price, will contaminate your office space with disruptive noise and unnecessary and potentially harmful dust/debris. The amortization and maintenance costs, included with the cost of the labor to prepare documents (discussed above) winds up shockingly more expensive than Scheduled Service Plan with DataShredder.
