Shredding FAQ / Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to remove staples prior to shredding?

Do you provide a shredding service to individuals?

Yes, we provide a shredding service for private individuals as well as companies and organisations.

How do I pay for your services?

We invoice all our customers following the completion of the shredding, though if you wish you can pay by cheque on the day.

What happens to the paper after it is shredded?

All paper is 100% recycled at local UK mills, helping the environment as well reducing your carbon footprint.

Do I require a regular or one off shredding service?

The service you require is dependant upon the number of employees and the amount of confidential documents generated.

How much notice do I need to give?

We are in most areas every week so to be rest assured, try to give a week’s notice, however, we endeavour to conduct our services as soon as possible after the initial enquiry.

How long will the job take?

We can shred up to 2000kg in an hour, this is 40x faster than office shredders and 3x faster than some of our competitors, so you can continue your business as soon as possible with peace of mind.

How big is the shredding truck?

Our specially designed shredding trucks are the same size as a rubbish truck so can fit down most roads, our vetted shredding operatives will securely transport the materials to the truck from your offices in a quiet and professional manner.

How do you charge?

We charge by weight so you pay just for what you need destroyed, though an exact price can be arranged before hand if required.
