Why Use Business Shredding Services?

Recycling Is Not An Alternative for Information Destruction

As consumers, you do your best to protect your identity. With over 10 million identity thefts occurring annually, about 40 hours to fix all the problems and the thousands charged in your name, sometimes your best isn't good enough. You can avoid the harassment, the legal costs and the headaches by calling in the experts of confidential shredding services. SoCal Shred can come to your home or you can take your confidential documents to one of our drop off shredding locations. We make it simple and affordable to protect your identity.

For business owners, on top of the several laws that require you to take all reasonable steps to destroy a customer's records, it's just good business. Any person, especially your customers, trust you to safeguard their personal information. Without this trust, the customers are gone and your business is no more.

Utilizing business shredding services creates a safety net for your customers information while providing you with Certificates of Destruction that limit any future liabilities.

California Shredding Laws

California requires that you completely destroy all customer records by shredding or erasing. If the information is not properly destroyed, California encourages consumers to sue you for damages and more. SoCal Shred's business shredding services provide you with Certificates of Destruction to help you should a lawsuit occur.
