Oakland Shredding Questions

Why Use an Oakland Shredding Service Instead of Using Our Own Shredder?

Money! It will cost you 3 to 5 times more to use a shredding machine than to hire an Oakland shredding service. The cost of the shredder, labor cost, office space, maintenance, power cost and disposal cost all add up to much more than we charge. And we do all the work for you. If you shred just 1-2 cases of paper per month, our service will save you money.

What Should We Shred?

  • Bank Statements
  • Unused Checks
  • Records from your Insurance Agency
  • Expired Contracts and Legal Documents
  • Outdated medical records
  • Credit Card Statements and Receipts
  • Customer Lists
  • Employee information
  • Proprietary Data
Shredding Questions in Oakland

Do We Need to Remove Paperclips and Staples?

Mobile shredding trucks eat up to 3 tons of paper per hour, and they can shred bendable metals like paperclips and staples. Plus your employees can focus on their job, not shredding.

Do You Recycle in Oakland?

Yes. The shredded paper is recycled into new paper products.

How Do You Charge for Your Services?

The cost for shredding is based on the quantity of material shredded, not by the minute. Let us know what you need shredded, and we will get you custom quotes.

Do You Strip Shred the Material?

Absolutely not! Strip shredding is a very inefficient method of shredding documents. Material that is strip shredded can easily be reconstructed. Professional shredding equipment uses a pierce and tear method which tears your documents into irregular pieces.

Are There Any Restrictions About What We Can Put in Your Security Containers?

No. Any color or type of paper, including paper clips, staples, rubber bands, labels and file tabs are OK.
