Pick up versus Drop off

Your ready-to-shred documents should be stored securely until you decide whether:

– you want us to pick them up or,
B – you wish to drop them off personally at our facility.

(you can even watch the process live or we can send you a video clip)

Once your documents are in First Stop Services’ possession, only authorized employees can access your ready-to-shred documents.

This policy ensures the integrity of your records until they are destroyed.

In detail

Pick up:

Just call us!

Ideally, 48 hours is needed for a pick-up but we can often come a lot sooner if needed. We will arrive in one of our secure trucks.

*a small charge applies which will be quoted ahead of time – no surprises!

Drop off:

Bring in any quantity to be shred during normal office hours with no heads up required. However, if you wish to watch your boxes be shred, we’d appreciate a call ahead as to not disappoint.
