How to Choose the Right Document Shredder for Your Baltimore Business or Medical Practice

December 10, 2011 Leave a comment

With so much identity theft today protecting your customer, client, or patients personal information should be a top priority for every business or medical practice.

That being said, one of most important pieces of equipment you can have in your office today is a good quality document shredder.

But as you may well know having a document shredder that constantly goes down in the process of shredding documents a real hassle.

That’s why buying a quality shredder is so important. In the world of document shredders the old saying “you get what you pay for” truly applies.

When choosing a shredder for your office here are a few buying tips to consider:

1) How many document are you going to be shredding daily, weekly and monthly?

2) How many documents are you going to be shredding at once?

3) Is the paper your shredding regular printer paper or sometimes is the paper a heavier stock?

When you investigate shredders have the answers to these questions ready and read the specifications for each model to find the one that works for you.

The biggest mistake I see medical practices, law offices and other businesses make is going to Staples or Office Depot and buying a cheap shredder.

These shredders are made for home use and not office use.

Even the most expensive ones at these stores are probably not what you need.

As many of you have already learned, if you don’t get a shredder that is heavy duty enough it will jam, overheat. create tons of dust and eventually die an early death.

Over the years I have worked with hundreds of organizations and one of the biggest headaches that the employees express in their document management processes is shredding.

If you are own or manage an organization believe me when I say your employees will be truly grateful if you purchase a quality shredder.
