How to Choose a Shredding Method
Now that you know the different shredding methods, how do you choose the right one for your needs? The answer to this question will depend on a variety of factors, including:
One cost factor is how close or far away you are from the shredding company. If they have to travel a great distance, it requires more time and resources like gas, which will increase the total price for their services. However, with drop-off shredding, this does not need to be factored into the price as you will handle bringing the materials to the business’s brick-and-mortar store.
PROSHRED® Houston is unique as they are one of the few companies that do not charge additional surcharge fees for fuel or mileage within its service area.
Volume of Material
The more material there is, the longer it will take to shred-the higher the overall cost. In some cases, businesses may be able to negotiate a lower rate for larger volumes of material.
However, it is important to note that the size of the material also plays a role in determining the cost. For example, it is typically cheaper to shred paper than plastic. As a result, businesses should consider the volume and type of materials they need to be destroyed when budgeting for this service.
