Why Small Business Saturday Matters

Small Business Saturday falls on the following Thanksgiving and was created to encourage consumers to shop at local small businesses. This day serves as a reminder of the importance of supporting small businesses, especially during the holiday shopping season.

Here are a few reasons why Small Business Saturday matters:

Boosts Local Economy

When you support small businesses, you are directly impacting your local economy. Shopping at a small business means your money stays within the community, creating jobs and supporting local families. Small companies also tend to source their products and services from other local businesses, creating a ripple effect of economic growth.

Unique Products And Services

Small businesses often offer unique products and services that you won’t find in big-box stores. From handmade items to personalized experiences, shopping at small businesses allows you to find one-of-a-kind things that make perfect gifts for your loved ones.

Unlike big corporations, small business owners are often hands-on and personally invested in their businesses. By supporting them, you are not just purchasing a product or service but also building a personal connection with the owner and contributing to their livelihood.

It’s a well known fact throughout the shredding industry that on-site shredding is the most secure of the shred services. For those who don’t have any experience working with shredding services, you may have heard this is the case but not really have any idea as to why. We’ll shed some light on why that is by going over on-site shredding and comparing it to the other services. One thing they all have in common is the receiving of a certificate of destruction upon successful shredding. This is used in your records as proof that you have indeed shred the required papers as required by compliance regulations.

On-Site Shredding

Also often called mobile shredding, is the most popular and secure of the shredding services. How it works is that a shredding truck, that is a truck with an inbuilt shredding machine and storage, arrives at a specified location. From there all material that is to be shredded is collected by the driver, taken out to the truck and shred. Now what really makes this process so secure is that you get to watch the whole thing happen right in front of you. By seeing everything happening you’re able to see that all papers are shred, that nothing was “misplaced”, and that at no point did the employee look at your private information.

Drop-Off And Off-Site Shredding

Two very similar services, they are conducting shredding at a secure shred facility, instead of a truck parked on the curb. As the names imply, one involves you coming to said facility and leaving your documents in our hands, the other involves us picking them up from you and bringing them to the facility. While still a very secure process, you won’t be able to actually see the shred occur in most cases. Documents are usually securely stored for around one business day until they are shredded.

Other Benefits

Beyond an increase in security and peace of mind, on-site shredding also gives you more flexibility with your shredding. When you need to do it regularly you have the option to set up a recurring schedule and the shred truck will just arrive when it is supposed to. This even works for those needing to shred only once in a while. It doesn’t even matter if you are a residential customer, or a business customer.

This makes on-site shredding both more convenient then other shredding services, but it also maintains a high level of security, while providing you with peace of mind that can’t be beat. Benefiting from this service is as simple as contacting a service provider and hashing out the details.
