Yes, I actually do care…
About making sure your documents are properly shredded to your satisfaction.
Does that mean others who sell shredding services don’t care?
Well I’ll let you decide.
Are you giving your documents to a business or organization that only does shredding?
There are quite a few places in San Diego where you can simply drop off your documents with the expectation that at some point in the future they will be successfully shredded.
One type of business you may find offering shredding drop off are “postal stores.”
Typically, these stores provide you the opportunity to drop off your sensitive documents with the promise that they will be stored securely and that a shredding company will come by one day in the future for shredding.
There are also very large national ”charities” that allow you to drop off documents for eventual shredding.
But here are the things you MUST consider:
- How long are your documents going to sit there before shredding?
- Are the documents being stored securely?
- Who exactly has access to your documents?
- Who has been subcontracted to shred your documents?
- Where exactly is the location of eventual shredding?
In my mind, these are some of the most important questions you should be asking when it comes to taking your documents for shredding. And honestly, if you have to ask, I would consider going somewhere else!
But there is one more question:
Is a business or charitable organization that provides a variety of services not related to handing and destroying sensitive documents a good fit for your document shredding situation?
Is it just me or do the dots not quite connect that you would, at the same time, drop off some old clothes at a charity along with a box of sensitive documents for shredding? I for one do not care who may or may not be trying on an old pair of pants that I’ve donated. But the same most certainly CAN NOT be said for my old check books, tax returns, and bank statements!
Is it just me or am I the only one who just is a bit skeptical of the person behind the desk at the local postal store. Hell, I’m not even sure I trust them to get my package to its final destination much less hold onto my sensitive documents until some un-vetted shredding company decides to swing by.
Maybe you’re just not as paranoid as I am when it comes to shredding sensitive documents…
If that’s the case, then my Shredding Service is most definitely NOT for you!
But if you’re just a fraction as paranoid as I am, then my service is the most perfect solution you’ll find just about anywhere.
Here is what we DON’T DO:
- We DON’T sell packaging
- We DON’T mail stuff
- We DON’T sell P.O. Boxes
- We DON’T sell office supplies
- We DON’T sell used clothing
- We DON’T sell used furniture
- We DON’T sell greeting cards

Here is what we DO:
- We Shred
- We PAY taxes
Not only is shredding all we do (consequently it’s the most important thing we do) we actually allow you to watch everything get shredded right before you eyes.
We are even the only place where you can request to watch all your documents get cross-cut shredded for even extra security. And you can be damn sure I cross-cut my own personal stuff when it comes to check books, tax documents, bank statement, and other HIGHLY SENSITIVE DOCUMENTS. I even run my stuff through the cross-cut shredder twice just to make sure I got everything and the pieces are extra small. Like I mentioned before, I’m really paranoid!
So if you’re looking for a shredding company that takes handing of your documents seriously, you’ve found the right place.

P.S. My comments about who pays taxes and who doesn’t is most definitely directed at the multitude of ”non-profits” that have decided to delve into the for-profit world of shredding. That a “charity” would use its beneficial tax status and their relative high regard in society to artificially lower prices in order to “compete” is reprehensible. But if that wasn’t enough, they then employ individuals with disabilities where the state will subsidize a portion of their hourly wages; again to unfairly compete in an industry where there is vigorous for-profit competition. This is more than reprehensible, this is the height of moral depravity. So, yes, shredding non-profits, and you know who you are, as a small local business that has to compete against you and your government subsidies, I find your business deplorable.
