How does shredding work?

You have a collection of  aging private documents, and have decided it is time to get rid of them.  If you have ever hired a shredding company to shred your documents for you, you already know how fast and easy it is.  The main thing you should be concerned with when hiring a shredding company is security.  You want to make sure your documents are shredded.  The only way to ensure this is to actually watch the shredding take place.   The second thing that will most likely influence your decision is price, how much does it cost to shred your documents.  You may have already weighed your options which include:


  • Use a home/personal 6 sheet at a time paper shredder, dealing with the device overheating every 10 minutes.  Cost=time + price of shredder.


  • Go to the local mail & ship or office supply store and drop your papers off to be shredded at a later date. Cost=$1.70 to $2.50 per pound.

How the Shredding Process works


  • Bring your boxes or bags of documents to a Shred Bull Drop off location and watch them get locked in a Shred Bull Shredding Cart. Cost=$10 for 1 standard banker box.  A box is a bankers box or copier paper box(12" x 14" x 10").  The boxes holds 25 to 30 pounds of paper.   If you have your documents in different boxes or bags, no problem, we will just estimate how much you have.


  • Schedule and appointment with Shred Bull, and we will come to you and shred all your documents at your home or office, while you watch.  We don't leave until everything is shredded.  Cost=$99 for 10 boxes(about $.33 cents per pound.)  Additional boxes are just $5ea.

Bottom line is, you want to hire a service to destroy your documents, offer you a fair price, and like any service business, you want to hire a company that understands customer service(Easy to schedule, on time, friendly & professional.)

For pricing we consider a box to be a standard bankers box that measures 10” x 12” x 15” If you don’t have your documents in boxes, bags or totes are also fine. We put all of your documents into our 95 gallon cart, the cart holds 10 boxes, so we will get an accurate count:)
