How to Prevent Holiday Identity Theft

Unfortunately, while the holidays are supposed to be a time of family, warmth, and celebration, the season is also often synonymous with an increase in identity theft and data breaches for both personal and commercial entities.

Because of this, the importance of document shredding cannot be overemphasized. Whether the documents involved are credit card statements or completed contracts, having this information openly displayed, or in an unlocked file, can lead to disaster. At PROSHRED® Washington D.C., we are a document shredding company that offers shredding services designed to fit the convenience of the customer.

To avoid encountering catastrophe this holiday season, it is important to use diligence in shredding records that are no longer of use. Using the latest in equipment, we are proud to be able to offer a one-time or regular service shredding schedule.

At our company, we offer:

  • One-Time Purge Shredding
  • On-going Shredding
  • Commercial Shredding
  • Hard Drive Shredding
  • Community-Wide Shredding

Protect Your Sensitive Data with PROSHRED® Document Shredding

A one-time purge shredding service means that we will come to your location and shred whatever number of documents you want to destroy. This may be an entire storage room or just a few boxes. Our on-site shredding truck makes it a simple way to get rid of unwanted documents.

An on-going service means just that. We will furnish you with a container, complete with lock, in which to safely store your documents prior to an agreed pickup time. This can be monthly or weekly, and avoids the messiness, noise, and loss of productivity that comes with trying to use an in-house shredder.

Commercial shredding will assure you that your unwanted documents are destroyed and will never see the light of day again. This brings not only peace of mind, but the assurance that no matter what means a thief may use, they will never gain access to your private information.

Looking to get rid of your personal financial or medical documents? Community shredding is a service we offer the community which allows large numbers of people to destroy unwanted documents. This eliminates the often-misconstrued idea that putting papers in the dumpster or recycle bin takes care of the problem. It has been shown that many thieves deliberately search for credit card receipts, cancelled checks and other such information in these locations. We’re proud to offer this service to help protect Washington D.C. citizens from identity theft.

Ward Off Identity Theft with Hard Drive Shredding Services

With the rapid advancement of modern technology, computers are constantly being upgraded, especially hard drives. Simply hitting the ‘erase’ on a hard drive does not destroy the confidential and sensitive information it contains. At PROSHRED® Washington D.C., we have hard drive destruction equipment to destroy hard drives completely, and present each client with a certificate showing the date and time the hard drive, or drives, was picked up so that you can maintain that information for your records.

We provide the latest in modern shredding equipment, employ experienced mobile shredding truck operators, and have reasonable prices. Serving Washington D.C. and the surrounding community, we have no hidden fees and can provide service quickly and efficiently.
