Buying Guide to Shredders

Disposing of your personal letters and documents securely helps to protect you against identity fraud.

Shredders can be desktop or floor standing.

Look out for the following features:

  • The cut type
    • This is how the shredder cuts the paper.
    • Cross-cut shredders provide the ultimate in security.
    • Strip-cut shredders are good for basic shredding.
  • Pieces
    • These are the size of the pieces of paper once it has been shredded. The smaller the size, the harder it would be for anyone to reconstruct your documents from the shredded paper.
  • Bin Size
    • This is how many litres of waste paper the shredder can hold.
  • Staples
    • This will let you know whether the shredder can take documents with metal staples. Please do not attempt to shred stapled documents if this feature is not present as this may break your shredder.
  • Credit Cards
    • If you want your shredder to be able to shred credit cards, make sure you check the shredder before you buy as not all shredders offer this facility.
  • CDs
    • If you want your shredder to be able to shred credit cards, make sure you check the shredder before you buy as not all shredders offer this facility.
