What Makes Shred Station the Best?

If you’re looking for a shredding service provider, you’ve probably noticed that there are a lot of options out there. You need to find a supplier who can provide you with fully secure services, with no stress. That’s our speciality.

We provide regular and one-off services to thousands of businesses and individuals across the UK. But what makes Shred Station the best choice for your shredding needs?


Shred Station is proud to be an independent business. Being independent gives us a lot of freedom that other shredding companies simply do not have. Our focus isn’t on pleasing shareholders, distant owners or office politics; our focus is on our customers. Every member of staff at Shred Station has the same goal – to deliver secure shredding services that our customers love. In fact, the pillars of our company ethos are as follows:

  • We want our customers to feel confident about data destruction
  • Deliver security every step of the way
  • Provide service to suit everyone
  • Operate with minimal environmental impacts
  • Cause minimal disruption to our customers
  • Lead the industry through customer service and innovation.

Our customer-centric approach to business has resulted in huge growth from referrals and word of mouth. By continuing to grow, we can continue to innovate and offer new solutions to make our customers’ journeys even better. Leading the industry in customer-centricity has also earned us the Feefo Gold Trusted Supplier award this year.

Regular Shredding Services UK Wide

Wherever you live in the UK, we will have a service available to suit your needs. Whether you need a shredding service ASAP or want to book a service for a later date, we can help. We operate across the whole of the UK, so can provide regular shredding services for paper materials, hard drives, digital media, textiles, and anything else you need securely destroyed.

We Don’t Subcontract

Unlike other shredding companies, we don’t subcontract any of our collections. When you book in a service with Shred Station, it’s us who will come to collect and destroy your confidential materials. Our uniformed and BS 7858 security-vetted staff will attend your premises, and all data will be destroyed in line with EN 15713 security shredding standards. You know, with us, exactly who has your confidential materials. We monitor all of our collections with GPS tracking and four-camera CCTV systems in our vehicles, and will also provide a Waste Transfer Note and Certificate of Destruction after every collection.

Customer Leading Technology

Another thing that sets us apart from other shredding businesses is our investments in technology to improve our customers’ experiences. One example of this is an automatic email alert to customers, letting them know when they are the next stop on our driver’s route. We ask our customers for regular feedback on how our services can be improved, and email alerts are one of the recurring suggestions our customers had. As a result, we invested in an update for our operations software, meaning customers can now go about their day without having to plan their schedule around waiting for a collection.

We’ve also recently built and implemented a secure online portal for our customers. This portal allows our customers to easily view their upcoming collections, see past collections, download Waste Transfer Notes and Certificates of Destruction, and manage their invoices. This tool has already proven a great success amongst our multi-site customers.

Environmental Commitments

In a world where there’s more pressure than ever to be mindful of our carbon footprint, Shred Station has been leading the shredding industry with official Carbon Neutral certification since January 2019.

Another commitment we have made is joining Volta Truck’s pioneer programme. Volta is a Sweden-based start-up that has created the world’s first fully-electric 16-tonne delivery vehicle. The vehicle, in addition to being fully-electric, also has innovative road safety features and bio-resin body components. We will be trailing the vehicle this year, and have already committed to purchasing once the first vehicles have been released. This further demonstrates our determination to decrease any environmental impacts, on top of our Euro 6 low emissions fleet and other numerous environmental commitments.
