Product Guide: Business Shredders

Security needs to be high on any business owner’s list of priorities, including your own and your customers/clients. Most businesses will deal with sensitive information such as bank account details, so it’s important that any sensitive documents are disposed off correctly.

Good business shredders are an essential office purchase, and it’s important to choose one that is adequate for your business needs. Cheap, home use shredders which only shred into strips are no good for business use, so make sure that you invest in a decent shredder to protect yours Business Shredders elf.

Should your business fall foul of identity fraud, it can be disastrous. It’s likely that you would have to effectively cease trading while sorting out the issue – and which business owner can afford to do that?

Identity fraud can cause problems with obtaining credit for your business, which in turn can cause all sorts of issues with cash flow, supplier and client relations, and more.

A cross cut, confetti cut or micro cut shredder will minimise the risk of fraudsters being able to glean information from your paper waste, thus cutting your risk of becoming the victim of identity fraud.

The size of the shredder you choose will depend on your estimated usage. If you are a sole trader with only a handful of documents to shred each day to could go for a small, space saving model such as the 15 litre Rexel Autoplus Confetti Cross Cut Shredder. This smart shredder from big brand Rexel has an auto facility which can hold up to 60 sheets, saving the busy sole trader or freelancer time on admin duties.

For small offices the Fellowes 125i Professional Shredder can accommodate 3 to 6 users, whereas large offices may require a shredder for more than 20 users such as the Rexel Mercury RLS32 Large Office Shredder.

Don’t risk the security of your business. Invest in quality business shredders from Office Allsorts that are adequate for your business needs.
