How To Get Started

When you call FileShred we will provide all the details about our services that will help you choose the right shredding service for your project. We will also give you the pricing for your service that is very straightforward with no surprise fees. Then the last thing you need to do is pick the day you want us to come to your home or office to destroy your files. We offer next day service Monday through Saturday. One call, it’s that easy.

How to Prepare

It’s easy the only thing you have to do is decide what files you need shredded. We have strong industrial shredders so you don’t have to open envelopes, separate file folders, remove staples, paper clips, binder clips, fasteners or rubber bands. Leave them our shredders will destroy them all. If your files are in the basement or on a floor with no elevator leave them there we will be happy to carry them for you. If you need to go through your files to determine what to shred just put the files to be destroyed in boxes, garbage bags or any containers you have available.

When the Truck Arrives

Our paper shredding truck will pull up to your Simsbury location and it will be easy to identify because our company logo is brightly displayed on the side of the truck. Our driver will hop out of the truck eager to do all the work for you. He will place your files and papers into a bin that holds about 300 pounds of paper. The bin will be locked so your papers can be moved to the paper shredding truck securely. At the truck, the document destruction system will lift the bin and empty your papers into the shredder and they are completely destroyed. You can accompany the bin to the truck and see your files go through the shredder on a monitor mounted on the truck.

Business Document Shredding

We offer two paper destruction options that have many variations to meet any commercial need, One-time or Scheduled Service.

Onetime Shredding is the flexible option that lets you call for document destruction services only when you need it. The frequency is up to you it could be just once.  This service is best for our clients that have an occasional need to securely dispose of business records.  In many cases, this is an event-driven service such as an annual file purge or you have an upcoming office move and you want to eliminate those files you don’t need anymore and you don’t want to waste any effort moving them.  It’s also for spontaneous decisions such as walking through your office and seeing a tremendous amount of papers taking up to much space in your office and you make the decision right there to have them destroyed to clean up your office.  Whatever the reason our one-time service is ready when you need it.

Scheduled Shredding is necessary for any business that is disposing of paper records often.  It important that you are protecting any of the private information you have been entrusted with and be compliant with privacy regulation. To start an ongoing document destruction program we deliver our locked consoles or bins to be left in your office so you have a secure place to dispose of any business records that are no longer needed. We provide enough containers to be distributed throughout your office so they are in locations that all of your staff can conveniently use.  Then we come to your office routinely to empty the containers and shred the documents. You can choose weekly, bi-weekly, every four weeks or a monthly schedule.
