Why Buy Shredding Machines?

If you’ve worked in an office before, it’s very likely that you’ve come across a shredding machine. However, we often get asked why they’re so popular and why individuals and companies rely on them so much. Here at AfterPrint, we stock a wide variety of office and industrial shredding machines and have put together the following guide to help you see their benefits.

Keep Your Space Organised and Clean

This benefit applies to those that are using them personally at home and at their desk in the office. Whether it’s letters from your bank or confidential company documents, your space can soon become cluttered over time. Therefore, many people opt to shred their way to a tidy space. Not only will this clear space in your office or home, but it will also produce a less voluminous waste than the sheets themselves would have. Therefore, it tends to be much easier to recycle.

Protect Your Privacy

One of the most important reasons that companies invest in office shredding machines is that they can help to keep your personal information safe. Many documents within a business can be confidential with anything from the company’s accounts to clients personal information being held in paper form. In order to comply with data protection laws and avoid any breaches of privacy, it is important that documents containing this information are destroyed after use.

It’s not just businesses that use shredding machines to protect their privacy though. It’s common for people to use these in their homes too for very similar reasons. With identity theft being possible using personal information such as addresses, contact details and your name, this is something to be wary of. Letters can often include anything from addresses to bank details and so it’s important that these documents are disposed of correctly. In order to prevent them ending up in the wrong hands, it’s recommended that you shred every piece of paper that holds any such details.
