Is Renting an Industrial Shredder in Dallas Worth It?

Renting an industrial shredder may seem like the perfect solution to your shredding needs. If you have large volumes of paperwork that needs to be destroyed, a single page office shredder won't keep up, and a rental can be much more cost-effective than a purchase if you won't be using the machine daily. However, industrial shredders are bulky and noisy, and create a hectic mess of paper bits for you to clean up. And industrial-grade machines are incredibly expensive, so just renting one can be quite costly.

Shredding Services in Dallas
To rent an industrial shredder you must first pay a flat fee, which can be steep. Plus, the equipment rental does not include labor, so you will need to pay one of your own employees (possibly for multiple days) to sit there and continually feed the documents into the shredder. It can become quite pricey when accounting for the cost of the rental, the cost of paying your employee, and, if you divert an existing employee to do the shredding, the cost of the lost work that your employee should be doing for your company.

To make things simpler, Dallas Document Shredding offers several easy and cost-efficient alternatives to making the costly investment of renting an industrial shredder. Here, we explore other shredding options, including convenient on site shredding and cost-efficient off site shredding.
