Cost – The cost for a One-time Service is based on a price per bin.  The cost per bin will be based on the number of bins that are going to be shredded.  The more you have to destroy the lower the cost per bin.  We do have a one-bin minimum per service.

Scheduled Shredding for Your Office

Cost – The cost of our Ongoing Service is based on the type of locked containers we provide, the number of units, and the frequency of service.  There is no rental fee just a charge for each time we service a collection container.  We do require service once per calendar quarter

Hard Drive Destruction

A computer hard drive is an electronic storage device that stores a tremendous amount of information.  Even when you hit the delete button the item still remains on your hard drive.  The hard drive also records everywhere you go on the internet.  So it is important to remove and destroy any hard drive from a computer you are no longer using or replacing.  The only way you can be sure that the information can never be accessed again is to physically destroy the hard drive.  A1 DATASHRED will shred all those hard drives so you never have to worry about it again.  We can come to you in Boston MA or you can come to our location.

Cost – When you need to destroy hard drives, we charge a price per hard drive. The more hard drives you have to destroy the lower the cost per hard drive.  If we are coming to destroy hard drives there is a minimum cost.  If you are destroying hard drives with paper that needs to be shredded there is no minimum cost to destroy the hard drives.

Helpful Tips About Document Shredding

  1. Separate the documents you want destroyed from the ones you need to keep so you don’t have to worry about the wrong papers being destroyed.
  2. Don’t worry about staples and paper clips. Our powerful commercial shredding trucks will shred these items along with your paperwork.
  3. Place the papers to be destroyed in boxes, garbage bags or containers that make them easy to handle.
  4. Have the documents you want shredded in one place, so nothing is missed when the document destruction service arrives.
  5. Shred often to avoid the risk of documents getting into the wrong hands.
  6. Shred every piece of paper being disposed of since more than half of all documents have secure information on them to prevent making a mistake.
  7. Have secure containers in your office so staff dispose of all documents in these locked containers.
  8. There should be a Secure Chain of Custody. Your documents should be moved from your location in a locked bin to the truck where they are shredded immediately.
  9. Make sure that the company you choose has NAID AAA Certification and provides a certificate of destruction once your documents have been shredded.
  10. Check Reviews, it speaks volumes about a company.
