Shredder Buying Guide

To make life easier for you we have selected a few of our most popular shredders which would suit most environments
Are you likely to increase the throughput in the coming months / years?
Often it's better to buy a machine capable of shredding higher quantities than you initially require as there's a good chance you'll find more and more to shred.
Do you have a backlog of shredding?
Again, buying a shredder that is capable of doing a handful of sheets per day is fine when in general use, but if you intend to shred a huge backlog, the shredder may not be up to it. If you're unsure, please contact us and we can advise.
What will you be shredding?
If you're looking to shred items other than paper - such as CDs, credit cards or staples - your choices may be limited.
How much to spend?
Like anything, buying the cheapest shredder and over-using it will cost you more in the long run. It's important that you find a balance between a sensible cost and a shredder which will do what you need with a little room for increased use. Below are our recommendations for each category which should give you an idea on what to spend.
