Things to Consider Before Buying a Paper Shredder

The best paper shredders offer a good balance of security to capacity, speed and budget. Consider the following before purchasing your paper shredder:

Types of Paper Shredders

Strip-cut shredders are the fastest, highest-volume and most budget-friendly choice because it only runs documents through the blades once in a vertical movement. This type of shredder is best for lower security needs.

Cross-cut shredders chops the paper into short, narrow strips for increased security. This type is faster than the micro-cut shredder and more secure than the strip-cut shredder.

Micro-cut shredders shreds the paper into unidentifiable confetti giving you the highest level of security.

Capacity & Shred Speed

While the cut-type is important for security; sheet volume and speed can also play an important role in selection. Consider the sheet and recycling bin capacity, and shred speed before making a purchase. A home office can usually manage with a slower shredder that takes a few sheets at a time and rarely needs to be emptied. While a busy office may need a model that processes more sheets faster and has a larger recycling bin.

Budget & Other Features

If you need to dispose of materials other than paper, try to find a model that is strong enough to shred CDs or credit cards. Finding a paper shredder with safety features can be ideal if you have little ones or if you want to avoid unwanted shredding.

Considering how much you would like to spend on a paper shredder can impact your choice as well.

Printed documents, mail and old files need to be disposed of responsibly. Choose security first with a strip-cut, crosscut or micro-cut paper shredder from London Drugs.
