Document Shredding Preparation

How Best To Prepare for your upcoming shred.

We want you to maximize the value you get from engaging our document shredding services.   In order to do so we recommend that bags/boxes for destruction are ready and on ground floor on the day of shredding and that material for destruction has been removed from lever arch folders. This enables our drivers to provide the most efficient service possible for your document shredding.


Should you anticipate any complications please just let us know in advance, we will assist you in any way we can and will allocate more time to our schedules.


We are happy to provide Cyclone Shredding Sacks if they would be useful ( a nominal delivery charge applies). If you are interested in regular shredding on a scheduled basis, we can supply you with lockable office consoles at no extra charge.



What We Can Shred:


-Invoices, delivery notes, order acknowledgments, packing lists

-Personnel records, time-sheets, payroll records, attendance records

-Accounts records, bank statements, tax records, annual returns

-Enquiries, proposals and quotations

-Marketing plans, pricing policies

-Market investigations, customer surveys, strategic plans

-Contract agreements, purchase orders, ATM receipts

-Staples and paper clips are okay


As a general rule, if it’s paper or paper-based it can be shredded.
