Oct 2nd 2013 at 10:46 PM

Most of the people think if they would like to purchase the best quality paper shredders, they have to be ready to spend lots of money as high quality PS must be really expensive. Well, this is half the truth as some of them really cost a lot, but if you try to know your basic requirements before you buy this machine, the cost will automatically reduce.

destroy itShredders are available in different types and brands and many of them are really good to meet your actual requirements. The important thing is to estimate your work requirement if you buy a high quality PS, but it does not fulfill your basic needs, it is useless for you while the same make might be of great benefit for another person. There are a few tips which can help you find the best shredder in your budget.

1) List Your Requirement & Preferences

First of all, prepare a list in which you include all your requirements and preferences before going to market as it is not advisable and get it without deciding what you actually need.

When the list is ready, you can go out or goggle for the suitable brands. It is better to look online before you go to the market as it would be much easier for you to find the most suitable PS that matches with all your requirements included in the list. Once you find what you have been looking for, go to the store and check it in physical form.

2) Types of Shred Cut

One common preference included in your list is the type as they can be found in various types and sizes from scissors to truck-sized. You can also visit PS selector sites which can help you choose the one that can be appropriate for your necessity. Here is a list of different types;

I) Strip-cut

It is said to be the least secure and it uses knives rotating and cutting narrow strips.

II) Cross-cut or confetti-cut

It uses two contra-rotating drums to cut parallelogram or rectangular.

III) Particle-cut

It cuts the papers in tiny circular or square pieces.

IV) Cardboard

This one cuts the papers into strips or a mesh pallet.

V) Disintegrators

This machine cuts papers into smallest pieces.

VI) Hammermills

The paper is pounded through screen.

VII) Pierce and Tear

It pierces and tears the paper.

VIII) Grinders

It grinds the paper.

There are different types of shredders, but whatever you buy, keep in mind that the main purpose of having such machines is to secure your identity or important documents from the unauthorized and illegal access. Therefore, cross cut or confetti cut are always considered as the best shredder for security purpose.


Another preference is the size of the machine you are going to buy. This is really important as if you don’t have the enough space to place the PS, it will be a greater problem for you. Therefore, the best you can do to avoid this situation is to measure the space you acquire; otherwise, you can buy a desktop or handheld. These are small in size and light in weight but are also low in performance as they cannot cut the normal paper size, so you have to fold or tear the paper before putting it into feeding tray.

You also need to check if it is high security shredding machine and you can also read reviews online which will enable you to take even a better decision.
