"Shredall provide offsite shredding services across our 250 stores nationwide, due to many of our locations being on busy high streets, we opted for the offsite shredding service which enabled the Shredall operatives to be in our stores for the least amount of time. All the waste is transported in locked containers, in a secure tracked vehicle which puts our minds at ease with regards to security. SDS provide document storage solutions for us, we have hard copy deliveries to our 4 main offices twice a day and scan on demand retrieval services for our stores. We chose Shredall due to the fact they are a family run business, we always speak to someone we know on the other end of the phone. They have the ability and resources to provide various services that fit our needs at competitive rates. Shredall provide excellent service levels from the dedicated office staff and highly trained and friendly operatives. I would have no problem endorsing Shredall to any business."
