1-800-SHREDDING VISITS SHREDFAST
Tino Fluckiger, President and CEO of 1-800-Shredding Inc., visited Shredfast World Headquarters to pick up a new PT-333 Mobile Document Shredder. This new vehicle will be the sixth in his fleet which serves Vancouver, British Columbia.
The high throughput and reliability of the PT-300 Series was a deciding factor for its purchase. Currently 1-800-Shredding meets the shredding demands of its customers through onsite mobile paper shredding.
Initially my experience with the other shredding technology was it was very good. The technology worked for our company and generally did the job. I noticed that since moving to the Shredfast technology there are specific and impactful differences in the technology that help me run the business more effectively and make more money.
Throughput was definitely one of the key factors for this upward change in productivity and profitability. The functionality and usefulness of the truck also became a factor for Fluckiger versus the trucks they were already using.
It’s much easier for our drivers to work with the truck overall. It has easier access to bins, less dust being produced by the shredder and it’s also less noisy. All these things make for a more driver friendly product which was important to me.
1-800-Shredding is a member of National Association for Information Destruction (NAID). Which describes itself as “the international trade association for companies providing information destruction services around the globe”. 1-800-Shredding has achieved NAID AAA Certification. This voluntary certification provides standards for mobile and plant-based shredding operations of document and printed media. It also sets standards for digital media destruction.
The product is of very high quality. Although I am paying a bit of a premium for the product, I feel it is well worth it. By purchasing this technology, I’m going to have a better presence in the marketplace with our customers. We are also going to have higher levels of efficiency and less break downs. All factors are leading to overall profitability and success of my organization.
Fluckiger found purchasing equipment from Shredfast to be a very easy process.
