Here's what our clients are saying

Good Job, Arrived early got it done quickly.

- Tim Hight – Greensboro

Everything about the shredding was good from beginning to end – the initial contact, setting up the appointment and picking up the paper.

- Patricia Kaufman

My experience with A Shred Ahead was excellent. The initial contact in Wilmington, NC was very professional and the day of the shredding went exactly as described to me when I placed my order. The driver coordinated a show time with me and was on time. The on site shredding went quickly and the cost per pound was very reasonable. I would recommend A Shred Ahead to anyone who needs a professional company to destroy confidential information.

That poor young man had to shred 50 file boxes full of files in heat over 100 degrees, then add the heat of the truck! He was very kind and professional through it all.

- Mid-America Overseas Inc. – Storage

We were extremely pleased with our total experience beginning with the scheduling of our appointment. Everyone was very polite and courteous. We had to cancel and reschedule but the people we spoke with were accommodating and helpful.. I appreciated the email reminder we received the day before stating the 2 hour window to expect. The next morning we received a phone call from the driver who told me what time to expect the truck and they were right on time. Two very courteous, helpful and experienced gentlemen got our shredding done quickly and efficiently. Our company will certainly use A Shred Ahead in the future. Not only that but we will recommend A Shred Ahead to others.
