San Francisco Off Site Shredding Services

Do you have a small storage locker worth of old files and documents lying around your office? Maybe box upon box of paper is beginning to spill over into your own garage-space or basement?

Now try to picture all those documents suddenly disappearing hassle-free and without taking a major hit to your budget. Imagine how much money your San Francisco Bay business could be saving if it wasn’t devoting a portion of its monthly budget just simply to shoving all those boxes of paper into a corner.

Imagine if instead of file cabinets, there were a desk, with an employee—an employee who could instead be helping your business to make money, rather than spending it. Welcome to Off-Site Shredding Services from Shred Nations.

Generally geared best to suit the needs of San Francisco businesses with high volume shredding projects of approximately fifteen boxes of document or more, the off-site shredding process is essentially the same as mobile shredding.

In this case, however, off-site shred trucks collect and transport your documents to be shredded at a secure offsite shredding facility rather than there at your curbside. While this may not be clear initially as to how off-site shredding saves your money, the numbers themselves may serve more clarifying. All of our off site shredding facilities throughout the San Francisco Bay area house the largest industrial shredders in the business.

Able to shred up to 20,000 pounds of paper in an hour, a shredding project of merely 20 boxes of documents is nothing more than a snack. Whether you have a home garage in the Sunset District stuffed to the brim with paper documents, or the ratio between file cabinets to desks in your Market Street office is beginning to quickly shift in the wrong direction, Shred Nations San Francisco can pick up your unneeded documents and transport them to our safe and secure off site shredding facilities.

We offer our offsite shredding services to San Francisco and all the surrounding areas and communities within the county, from Chinatown to the Mission District, and everywhere in between.

Approximate Cost of Off-Site Shredding in San Francisco

In terms of pricing out you off site shredding project, a general rule of thumb to follow is that the more you will need to have shredded, the better the pricing per unit becomes. To illustrate this, we can simply take a moment to compare the costs for three different shred options Shred Nations San Francisco offers: drop off shredding locations, mobile shredding, and offsite shredding.

First, we’ll start with drop off shredding, which usually comes to about $2 per pound of shredded material, making a high-volume project especially expensive. Next, if you turn towards the mobile shredding service route, the average cost tends to fall around $100 per visit, although this price too can fluctuate slightly as well depending on the total number of documents needing shredding.

Finally, when one comes to the offsite shredding option, a project of the same size will usually cost around only $85, as opposed to $100, making the extra effort of transporting your materials worth it depending on your budget.

As you can see, when push comes to shove, the ultimate cost of high-volume projects generally tends to be lower when the shredding is done off-site at one of our secure shredding facilities rather than done on site and at your curbside, but nevertheless, it is still recommended that before you make any final decision you weigh your options carefully.
