4 Important Questions Valdosta Law Firms Should Ask About Shredding Services

Lawyer outsource shredding

Any industry that deals with paper records can benefit from a shredding service, and law is no exception. The details of a shredding service that a given practice or firm uses differ depending on many factors. But, there will always be a need for shredding. If your law firm is thinking about outsourcing shredding needs, there are a handful of questions you should be asking.

Reasons to outsource shredding1. Why Should I Outsource Shredding?

Shredding is an ideal service to outsource for many law practices. While smaller practices may meet their shredding needs with in-house shredding containers or shred bins, larger and more active firms and practices may look to move past in-house shredding programs. For these firms, this can overwhelm in-house workers, disrupt workflows, and cause backlogs of sensitive documents. Outsourcing shredding needs in these situations ensures workflows remain conductive, records are destroyed in a secure and timely manner, and employees have time to devote to more immediate projects. If you find your firm or practice in similar straits, it may be time to consider outsourcing.  

2. Does this Shredding Service Meet My Specific Shredding Needs?

Whether you are considering outsourcing, or already are, it’s important to ask: Does this service meet my business’s needs? It’s possible to partner with a shredding company that’s inconsistent with shredding services or challenging to work with. At Secure Records Solutions, we put client experience above all else. We work with a suite of shredding equipment to create tailored plans that meet clients terms, consistently and reliably. This is the foundation of any good shredding program, and the only way a shred program can truly meet a business’s specific shredding needs.  

3. How Much Does Location Matter? 

Unlike many services that work with data and records, shredding services still work around the limitations of physical copies of records in paper form. This means, for example, that it is not ideal to outsource a shredding company in New York if your law firm is headquartered in Valdosta. Businesses must count on local shredding providers if they are looking to outsource. Luckily for Valdosta area law firms, Secure Records Solutions offers tailored shredding services for clients in and around the Valdosta area.  

4. What Can I Count on From the Best Shredding Service? 

This is perhaps the most important question of all when considering professional shredding services. At the end of the day, the best shredding service for your law firm or practice will offer three things: Consistency, Reliability, and Security.Your answers to these questions can tell you a lot about your shredding needs and whether they are best met with current shredding practices. Regardless of your situation, though, Secure Records Solutions has a plan to meet your law firm or practice’s needs.
