Is Renting Industrial Shredders Worth the Investment?

Renting Industrial ShreddersAs concerns over identity theft continue to grow, individuals and businesses have considered renting industrial shredders to take care of their documents—but is the investment worth it?


Consider doing a Google search and finding out on Angie’s List that leasing or renting a commercial shredder can cost upwards of $10,000.


At first glance you might think this will save you money over time on your shredding projects. However, you will also need to take into account the cost of an employee managing all of your shredding projects.
