When it comes to document shredding, it is required by law that documents be destroyed securely. This is especially true for companies in the medical, legal, and government fields. Part of these laws include having the documents shredded and destroyed and providing evidence that the shredding process was successful.
Modern Image provides secure document shredding services throughout Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC, including a certificate of destruction for your files once shredding is complete. If you are in need of secure document shredding, or you want to make sure all of your files are correctly destroyed after being scanned, contact us today.
Tips to Securely Shred Documents
There are a few things you will want to look for when you are hiring someone to take care of your company’s shredding needs, including:
- Document Pick Up – Will the company pick up your files and what process do they have to make sure all files make it securely to their shredding facility? Some companies might offer pick up services, while others may ask you to deliver all of the paperwork to them. If a company is doing their document pick up right, it will be more secure to let them pick up the papers from your location.
- Security – Security is important when it comes to document shredding. You will want to look for a company that has procedures set in place to keep all files secure during transit and at their shredding facility. Confirm that all documents are shredded to the point that they are impossible to piece together or read from.
- Experience – Choosing a paper shredding company that has experience working with companies in the medical and legal fields as well as government legislatures will make sure that they have the right skills and experience to deal with your sensitive documents. Check how long the company has been in business and ask around to see if anyone has had experience using certain companies in your area.
- Great Customer Service – It is important that the shredding company you choose know how to offer great customer service. A good customer service team should answer any questions, be able to give you a free quote, and be able to explain the process of what will happen with your documents.
