With identity theft at an all-time high- and rising, you have to be more vigilant than ever to stop your personal data getting in to the wrong hands. Criminals have been known to raid bins and other disposal units to try and find old bank statements, bills, or anything that contains personal details- such as your name, address or phone number.
The best way to protect against this and minimise the risk of identity theft is to make sure that your documents have been properly disposed of. Shredding your data is the most effective and safest way of getting this done properly.
Home shredders, which are available at supermarkets and retailers such as Argos are common household items if you are self-employed or occasionally work from home. However, these have been criticised for their speed, size and quality, meaning that they may not be the best option to protect yourself and your family from being a victim of fraud.
At GTW Storage, we offer a secure, reliable and efficient shredding service on site- giving our customers peace of mind that their details aren’t going to get into the wrong hands.
If you are located in the Glasgow area we will pick up all shredding on orders of £20 or more free of charge, saving you the hassle. We securely shred all types of personal documentation such as: Business Reports, Financial Records, Client Files, Personnel Records, Sensitive Legal Records and Medical Documents to make sure they are compliant with privacy legislation- just pop them in a bag and we will do the rest!
Once your documents have been securely destroyed at our warehouse, we will even provide you with a document destruction certificate for your records. After that, we recycle all of the shredded paper so you can rest assured knowing that you are also helping the environment.
You don’t even need to be an existing customer to make use of our shredding facilities- we are more than happy to provide one off shredding support for your sensitive materials and media if and when you need to use us.
