Who Makes Good Paper Shredders?
Paper shredders are more complicated than one would think at first glance. Many people probably don't put much thought into the handy little machines that have such an important job to do. Many companies are out there selling paper shredders, many different brands, and many different sizes are available. But whose brand is the best? Paper shredders are used by everyone from the average housewife to the business executive in a large organization. Fellowes offers a variety in all types, sizes, and price ranges to meet the needs of each person or business. Though they offer more than just shredders, their range of shredders is impressive.
Their products have appealing designs and colors to help your shredder have a professional look for your office. With a range of security levels to choose from, on a scale of one to six, it's important to know which level of Fellowes shredder you'll feel most comfortable with. The first security level takes care of general record and other documents that have expired yet still need to be destroyed. The highest security level, which is six, is backed by the government standards and provides the ultimate shredding to keep prying eyes away from sensitive information. Although security level 2 is among the lower levels, Fellowes shredders at this level can still cost in the range above $1000.
Fellowes offers light duty to heavy duty shredders. Their medium duty shredders can be found for $55 with confetti-cut results. A light duty shredder can sell for $10 and has a fairly good user rating. However, remember that you'll want to get the most out of your shredder regardless of how much or how little you spend, so operating it within its boundaries is recommended. A light duty shredder is made only for an occasional use with short run time and is meant for the smallest and thinnest of papers, such as receipts---never heavy cardboard or stapled stacks. If you overwork your shredder, it can burn up the motor. The Fellowes shredders that sell in the low thousands have thermally protected 1.9 horsepower motors. Do you want to see the level of the waste basket on your shredder as it fills? Or would you prefer an indicator that lets you know it's time to empty? Fellowes offers this feature with many of their shredders as well. Fellowes paper shredders are sold all over the country in many different office supply stores.
You can buy new or you can buy refurbished. A Fellowes shredder that retails for $3400 can be found refurbished at half the cost and still have a 2 year machine warranty and a 20 year cutter warranty. The cost of shredders can vary greatly from one store to the next, so be sure you shop around and choose wisely. There is, of course, an almost endless supply of stores to choose from on the internet to order a Fellowes shredder. Fellowes does offer other brands of products, such as Body Glove, NeatO, and Bankers Box. But they definitely stand out as a popular brand in the shredder industry.
