This closely guarded Industry Secret could leave you wide open to Identity Theft.
Discover what the competition won’t tell you…
I’ve been thinking about this for a few weeks now…
It’s something that came up over lunch with a person in my mastermind group.
She was getting to know more about my business and asked me what certifications and licenses I needed in order to get started in the Shredding Industry.
I paused for a moment and responded, “Well… Actually… There’s no certificate or government license that’s required to start a shredding company… Outside of a regular business that is.”
My friend looked at me confused for a second and then replied, “So someone could be handling all these sensitive documents and there’s absolutely no guarantee that they are making sure everything is getting shredded properly?”
I responded, “Unfortunately, that’s pretty much the case.”
And that’s why it’s critical that consumers perform their due diligence when selecting a shredding company.
However, one of the biggest problems is that many customers ignore whether or not a paper shredding service is qualified to securely destroy their documents but rather choose a paper shredding service only on the basis of price.
This has resulted in a multitude of new shredding companies that have popped up to undercut the competition only to make a quick buck. The reason they can undercut many of their competitors is that they are often times taking shortcuts on insurance, employee background checks, uniforms, or some other industry specific requirement.
Some of these shortcuts may seem superficial, but from my standpoint, if an organization, built around securing your documents, doesn’t look professional, how can you, I, or anyone else be sure sufficient security precautions are being taken when it comes to handling your documents.
The Bottom Line Is:
There is absolutely no governmental oversight of the document destruction industry.
And when it comes to the old saying, “Buyer Beware”, be especially aware when it comes to choosing a document destruction vendor.
So what is the average consumer to do?
That’s why I put together a “Paper Shredding Buyers Guide” that anyone can freely download
In this guide I open the door a little bit further into what the paper shredding industry is all about and to clear away some of the mystery that is hanging around out there. I even go as far as putting in some real money saving insider tips that only those deep inside the industry even know about. It walks you through exactly what to be looking for and what exactly to ask when you’re out there evaluating a potential shredding vendor.
As far as I can tell, this is a first of its kind.
Once you read through this guide, my hope is that you’ll be able to make a quality decision about choosing a paper shredding service.
