You should address the following questions before you can decide whether you should shred documents by your self or hire a professional company.
Remember, if a shredding process is done, this must guarantee that the data can’t be restored.
Do I have enough time to shred documents by myself?
If there are plenty of documents, then the chances are that it is cheaper to hire a professional service as you will spend to much time shredding documents.
Am I able to check what happens to the shredded paper once the destruction has been done?
Shredding Sensitive information requires a guarantee that the destroyed records are not being able to be recreated. Follow what happens with the paper after the destruction process is necessary.
To conclude, if you handle sensitive information and don’t have time enough or the resources to guarantee it’s final destruction and recycle, then the chances are that it is better to hire a professional service.
