Paper shredding services
Recent figures from Cifas show that instances of identity theft have risen sharply – with an 11% surge during the pandemic lockdowns.
Research also shows that people living in affluent suburbs around the UK’s major cities are more likely to be targeted, with Altrincham named as the ‘UK’s provincial identity fraud capital’ by Experian.
That's why we have developed a range of confidential waste destruction services to protect you from identity theft.
Confidential paper shredding
Our confidential domestic paper shredding service central/south Manchester and Cheshire is here to securely shred all your private documents, making sure you stay safe from identity fraudsters.
For ultimate peace of mind, you can even watch as we shred your unwanted paperwork - giving you further reassurance that your sensitive personal and financial information has been correctly and completely destroyed.
Why protect your personal data?
It’s all too easy (and tempting) to throw confidential documents in the bin when they’re no longer needed, especially in the comfort and security of your own home.
But with levels of domestic identity theft increasing, it's essential to take steps to protect yourself and your family from fraud.
Items like bank statements, passports, mobile phone bills and even supplier invoices can prove hugely valuable to fraudsters. Identity thieves can use this personal and financial information to piece together a profile for an individual or business.
This profile can then be used to access online and telephone banking accounts, create fraudulent online shopping accounts, and take out credit cards, loans and even mortgages in your personal or company name.
If your personal information is used in one of these ways, the damage to your credit rating could take up to two years to put right.
