How we are implementing our contact-free document shredding.

With safety at the forefront of everyone’s mind, the way businesses are operating has had to transform overnight. Social distancing, safety and contact-free products/services are what we firstly look for now in our business of choice.

With safety in mind, we are now operating a contact-free secure paper shredding service so you can drop your paper off or arrange for us to collect, without the worry of safety.

Contact Free Shredding Service Drop Off:

Drop off trolley’s for customers to put their paper straight into.

We ask that customers call in advance to drop off their confidential paper and we will arrange an approximate appointment time.

These trolleys help us to operate our contact-free shredding service.
We have these containers waiting by the big roller doors and you just load your paper/documents in your bags into these and put it back by the door.
Our staff member will then take your details for your invoice and certificate of destruction (From 2 meters away).
We will then take the trolley away and shred all your paper.
If you wish to drop off your paper, we are based in Neston on the Wirral. Our full address for your Sat Nav is: 10 Windle Court, Clayhill Industrial Park, Neston, CH64 3UH.

Contact-Free Paper Collections:

Our staff’s safety box to protect against contamination and transfer of bacteria.

If you want a collection to be arranged, you just need to call our office team (0151 336 2122) and they will arrange a day and time for your paper to be collected. We ask that bags are put outside your house at the agreed time as ideally our staff will not be entering any houses.

When our staff collect shredding they all have their own safety pack, to ensure the safety of our staff and also customers. Our service is contact free but we also take safety precautions.
Each one contains:
– dettol
– gloves (to wear when outside the vehicle) and masks.
– wet wipes
– hand roll
These are to try and keep our shredding service as safe as possible.
Paper is then brought back to the premises and shredded on our cross cut shredder.

We hope we have reassured all customers that we are taking safety as seriously as we take paper security and want our customers to feel safe. If you have any queries, please contact.

Covid-19 Update – Our now contact free shredding service.

We are excited to announce we are back open (21st April 2020) but it’s a slightly different contact-free set-up to protect our customers and staff, please see below:

If you are dropping off:
Please phone to make an appointment. When you arrive, place your bags/boxes into the designated container that our staff member indicates to. Our staff will take your details for a copy of your invoice and certificate to be emailed over to you.

If you have arranged a collection:
Please ensure that your bags are outside at the designated time for our driver to collect.

If you or someone that you live with has been in contact with or has symptoms of covid-19 then please do not give us your paper to be shredded until it is safe to do so.

If possible, please pay by card or bank transfer.

To arrange some shredding, please call our office on 0151 336 2122 or email admin@ushred.co.uk

Thank you for your patience whilst we were closed and also for your co-operation with our new procedures. We really hope to see you all soon. Stay safe ❤️
