Tips for Choosing a Shredding and Destruction Vendor

In today’s world, where liability exposure, privacy risks, and compliance requirements drive many important business decisions, having a reliable and secure shredding and destruction program is a must. But how do you cut through the clutter of a crowded marketplace to find a vendor who offers exceptional quality, value and privacy protection? Before choosing a shredding and destruction vendor, consider the following questions:

Are They NAID AAA Certified?

One of the most important factors to consider when choosing a shredding and destruction vendor is security. National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) AAA Certified shredding and destruction vendors are held to the highest security standards in the industry. They are continually audited by impartial, independent security professionals who assess the following areas:

  • Operational security
  • Responsible disposal
  • Employee hiring and screening practices
  • Insurance standards

When you partner with a NAID AAA Certified shredding and destruction vendor, your information is destroyed with unparalleled security

How Much Do You Have to Destroy?

Whether it’s a few boxes of documents or an entire file room of records, your information should be destroyed efficiently and affordably. An experienced provider assesses your destruction project to provide an accurate cost estimate and project timeframe so you can plan and budget accordingly.

Do They Offer a Range of Services?

You have unique destruction requirements, and therefore want a vendor who offers a range of shredding and destruction solutions. If you need to witness the destruction process, an on-site mobile shredding service destroys your information at your doorstep. Scheduled shredding and one-time shredding services offer customized destruction solutions based on your information disposal volume and frequency. And if you work from home or on the road, a walk-in shredding service offers exceptional convenience and flexibility.

Do They Destroy More than Paper Records?

A comprehensive information security plan includes the destruction of both paper and non-paper information. A shredding and destruction vendor who destroys confidential documents, branded products, expired digital devices and computer media, gives your business a single source shredding and destruction solution.

To make sure you partner with a shredding and destruction vendor who offers the utmost security, value and personalized service, follow these tips.
