Pricing for Your Project Depends on Which Service You Choose

Mobile Shredding – Mobile shredding services are typically ideal for bigger shredding jobs, but it is actually cheaper than taking them into a facility if you have more than a couple of boxes. For any amount of paperwork up to 300 pounds (approximately 10 boxes), you are looking at right around $100 for your home.

Offsite Shredding – Offsite shredding services offer the convenience of not having to leave your home or office at a more economical price. We pick your documents up to be shredded, and the typical price is $60–$75 for that same three hundred pound, 10 box project.

Drop Off Paper Shredding – Most retail drop off locations will charge right around $1 per pound. If you have one box (which is roughly around 30 pounds of documents), it would cost $30 to destroy your documents.

Ship ‘N’ Shred – Similar to drop off paper shredding services, our Ship N Shred service charges right around $32 per box.  You can drop off your documents or have them picked up from your location and shipped off to be destroyed.

Some main factors that could affect the price of your project:

How Much Do You Have to Shred?

Drop off services charge by the pound while Mobile Shredding or Offsite Shredding companies charge by the number of documents/boxes/trash bags you have.

The service that fits your best depends on how much you need to shred. As that number increases, it usually makes more sense to use a mobile or offsite shredding company rather than dropping of your documents at a retail location.

Where Are You Located?

Proximity to professional shredding companies located in your area factor in to the price of your project. Mobile and offsite shredding companies that travel to you factor in the distance they have to travel in your quote, so if you live on the outskirts of town, it might cost a little more than if you’re in the heart of a metro area.

Are There Any Extra Steps That Need to Be Considered?

Any additional steps to the process affect the price of your project. Be sure to provide any additional requirements with your quote request to make sure you get as accurate a quote as possible. Gathering bins from multiple locations or having the driver has travel up a flight of stairs could increase the price.
