The Limitations of Personal Shredders 

Personal shredders, while convenient for home use, come with significant limitations: 

  • Limited Capacity: Personal shredders are designed for low-volume shredding. They handle a few sheets at a time, making them unsuitable for larger documents or bulk shredding. 
  • Security Risks: Many personal shredders only cut paper into strips, which can be reassembled. This compromises the security of sensitive information. 
  • Time-Consuming: Shredding large volumes of documents with a personal shredder is slow and labour-intensive. 
  • Maintenance Issues: Personal shredders often require frequent maintenance and can jam easily, leading to frustration and downtime. 
  • Lack of Compliance: For businesses, personal shredders may not meet regulatory requirements for document destruction, such as those mandated by HIPAA, FACTA, or GDPR. 

Here are 4 reasons why you should choose PROSHRED®!

PROSHRED®’s shredding services provide comprehensive solutions to the limitations of personal shredders, offering unmatched security and efficiency: 

Regulatory Compliance

PROSHRED® is compliant with various federal and state regulations, ensuring that your document destruction process meets all legal requirements. 

Enhanced Security

To ensure the confidentiality of sensitive information we use cross-cut and micro-cut shredders, making reconstruction virtually impossible.

Time Efficiency

With high-speed shredding capabilities, PROSHRED® can process documents much faster than any personal shredder, saving time and resources. 


PROSHRED® offers on-site shredding, eliminating the need to transport sensitive documents by securely shredding them at your location.

While personal shredders may suffice for occasional home use, they fall short in providing the security and efficiency needed for businesses and individuals handling sensitive information. PROSHRED®’s secure shredding services offer unparalleled security, compliance, and convenience, making them the superior choice for secure document destruction. Protect your information and ensure regulatory compliance with PROSHRED® because when it comes to document security, you can’t afford to take chances.
