DROP OFF SHREDDING SERVICE
"Another convenience service offered by
PACK-n-SHIP Etc. has partnered with Cintas to provide our customers with a safe and secure way to dispose of documents that are no longer needed: such as old banking records, outdated business documents or tax returns and supporting documents that are older than the government required storage period.
A DROP OFF SHREDDING service means that your documents are stored in a locked bin at all times until they are destroyed at PACK-n-SHIP Etc. by the experts at Cintas. Your documents never leave PACK-n-SHIP Etc. – only the confetti does. A certificate of destruction is available upon request for your files. The cost to help prevent identify theft is only $1.00 per pound up to 50 pounds and $.75 per pound for 51 pounds and up.
Stolen documents account for nearly half (43%) of the 9 Million cases of identity theft per year in the USA (according to the Federal Trade Commission). Identity theft frequently occurs when someone finds your identifying information, like your name, Social Security number, or credit card number after you have disposed of it without shredding it first and uses it without your permission, to commit fraud or other crimes.
Identity theft has become more and more prevalent with thieves being more sophisitcated every day. We have all heard of people spending hundreds of dollars and many days or years repairing the damage to their good name and credit record with some people never really free of the unauthorized use of their credit. Consumers victimized by identity theft sometimes lose out on job opportunities, can be denied loans for education, housing or cars all because of negative information on their credit reports.
DON'T throw your papers and electronic media into the garbage. Protect yourself against identity theft by shredding all private papers. Your credit card receipts, canceled checks, folders, binders, CD ROM's, floppy disks, and other media holding your private information can all be thoroughly destroyed at PACK-n-SHIP Etc.
