The gentleman first of all called and advised of his time of arrival. He arrived within the time and was very professional. He came in and was able to place all of our materials in one container. He was in and out in no time. The payment transaction was quick. There was no disruption in our workplace as a result of this shred event. We will definitely use your company again.

A Shred Ahead is the only shredding I use. Once a year they come in within a week of my calling (sometimes sooner). The scheduler and shredder are professionals. Their customer service with calls and emails in outstanding.

- South Charlotte Middle School

As a school system we cannot always approximate what our weight will be for a purge. This time we were over and our driver said he needed to call the office to see whether he could dump the contents of the truck, return, and finish the job that day. The office said he had to return another day. I have never, in the 9+ years I’ve used these folks had that happen. We are either over or under just about every time A-Shred-Ahead does our purge. On at least two occasions the driver dumped the contents and returned to finish. I was very disappointed that didn’t happen this time. It was still early in the afternoon and there wasn’t that much more to be done; the driver didn’t indicate that he had another stop after us. I have no complaint with the driver – he was very professional and worked hard; it is the central office that could have been more accommodating.

Driver called to let us know he was on his way and gave us 30 minutes to make sure we were ready which was very helpful.

Would definitely use A Shred Ahead again in the future. Thanks!

A Shred Ahead made my day! It was the easiest way of getting rid of old files and confidential information. All I had to do was watch the screen showing my stuff being shredded.

- Williams Chapel Church

I called around and was first happy about the pricing. It was very reasonable for the service offered. We need to save as much as possible as we are a non-profit and our money needs to be allocated to other things. I was completely impressed by the notification system. I was told I would get an email the night before my appoinment with a 2 hour window of arrival. I was then told I would receive a call from the driver when in route. It was super easy and took only a short time for the transaction to be completed upon the drivers arrival. I feel this company has the customers satisfaction as a forerunning concern and they deliver. I am completely satisfied with the whole experience and would call again when the need arises! Thank you.
