On-Site vs In-House Shredding Services in Phoenix Arizona
Identity theft is a constant threat to businesses and individuals.

There are risks to certain paper shredding methods that can be eliminated through our on-site shredding services.
Outsourcing your document and hard drive shredding to us requires a certain level of trust compared to in-house shredding.

Allow us to demonstrate our industry leading customer service and secure shredding methods and we’re confident you’ll never go back to in-house shredding again.
Benefits of On-Site Shredding
It’s widely known how important it is to you a certified shredding service to ensure your confidential documents are disposed of properly, but why should you choose on-site shredding over all the other choices? Here are some of the benefits of on-site shredding here at Cutters Document Destruction:
- Convenience – You never have to travel or risk your documents leaving your hands. With on-site shredding, we come to wherever you are and ensure your sensitive information is properly disposed of.
- Professional Mobile Shredding Trucks – Our mobile shredding trucks are outfitted with the latest high-performance shredders that can easily handle large shredding jobs.
- Shred Large Amount of Documents Quickly – It’s difficult to transport multiple boxes of documents somewhere to be shredded. With on-site shredding you don’t have to worry about transporting heavy boxes full of sensitive documents.
- Official Certificate of Destruction – The best part is we give you a certificate of destruction that confirms we did a shred job for you and that it was in compliance with all regulations and privacy laws.
Why In-House Shredding Isn’t Good
The only real benefit to in-house shredding is that you have the convenience of shredding at your location but the downsides far outweigh the convenience. Especially with identity theft and business fraud increasing every year, proper document shredding is more important than it has ever been. So, what are the downsides of just shredding your documents in-house?
- Office Shredder Purchase Costs & Maintenance – Shredders aren’t inexpensive investments and can’t handle large document shredding jobs like our powerful shred trucks can. Not only that, but it’s not uncommon for office shredders to break and need frequent maintenance. This leads to additional costs that could easily be avoided by using our on-site shredding services.
- Slow & Limited Shredding Capacity – Shredding with regular office shredders takes time and effort that could be better used on other tasks.
- Manual Shredders Require Employees – With manual office shredders, you have to pay employees to shred documents. This adds to your payroll and ultimately costs you more money compared to outsourcing your shredding needs to us.
- Small Shredders Don’t Shred Efficiently – Small office shredders aren’t known to meet the standards required to properly shred your sensitive information. Our professional mobile shredding trucks are outfitted with heavy duty shredders that adhere to all government regulations and shredding laws.
Learn more about In-Office vs On-Site Shredding from the Owners of Cutters Document Destruction, Reggie & Lisa Heywood:
Lisa Heywood: We’ve actually went to a doctor’s office, who was a friend of ours as well, and he purchased a commercial shredder and said that he didn’t have a need for on-site destruction and just a couple weeks later called Reggie and said “I need your service, our shredder has burned out.”
Reggie Heywood: That shredder was their third shredder that broke down so they were glad to have us come out and for just a low monthly fee we’ll come out. We shred literally 300 pounds for them in a manner of 5 minutes.
Shredding is a fairly new industry really (commercial shredding). At first it was just a good idea to have your documents shredded and people were buying little home or office shredders.
But now its become a necessity with today’s identity theft to have laws put in place. Three of those laws are HIPPA, another one is FACTA and another one is SCC. And we like to help people with those laws to make sure they feel the peace-of-mind knowing that they’re in compliance with today’s laws
