- Cape Fear Psychological

The Driver was there when he said he would be which was great since it was outside at a storage unit. It took a lot less time than I thought to shred a lot of paper!

- Taxes & More – Storage

On time. Professional. Representative was great!

- Judy Haddock

Even we know A Shred Ahead is the trustable company, we would like in the future if possible to have the paper shred at the company’s premises.

- Chapman Products


- Geosyntec Consultants

Every person I spoke to and dealt with was polite and professional. A Shred Ahead called when they said they would call and came when they said they would come … a rare thing these days. A Shred Ahead was also the least expensive of all the services I researched and all with quality service. I have already recommended them to others.

- Suanne Jay – Bonita Springs

Fast , efficient, and very professional. Best company I’ve dealt with in this field. Pick up representative was great..

- Roland Smith – Carrboro

Absolutely perfect from the immediate reply when contacted, clarity of the charges, notice of arrival time and then there on time… friendly, efficient operator and papers gone in 10 minutes!!!

- Carol A Mohney, PHD

My contact, Sonny was very good to work with, except for apparent company policy. The shredder was not at the facility when I showed up for my 3PM appointment. I asked for a “certificate of destruction”. What I got was a receipt on your letterhead, and I left the facility without my PHI being destroyed. I called back the next day, and Sonny told me they did not provide a “certificate of destruction”. At my request he did send me a prompt email stating when the shredding occurred.

- Michael C. Leath, MD

Prompt and friendly!

- David Blanton – Fayetteville

Great company! Very easy to work with, showed up on time and reasonably priced.

- Crabtree Valley Baptist Church

A Shred Ahead is Awesome to deal with. Everyone is pleasant. They normally are here within a week of me calling to schedule a pickup. Mike, our A Shred Ahead driver for our area, is so customer service oriented. We are very pleased with the service we receive.

- Pension Investors

The service you provided and the courteous manner in which it was provided was just awesome. The driver was so polite, mannerly, and personable, and such a blessing to work with.

- Downtown Tax Service

Cost of shredding doubled in 14 months. New cost basis is very much in favor or A Shred Ahead. Apparently they had trouble with one of their trucks–kept me waiting through first scheduled appointment without calling me until after I waited for 6-8 hours. Rescheduled for next day.

- Wayne Dahnke

Our driver was so nice and kind! I never expected that kind of service from this company and I was pleasantly surprised with the haste, respect, and kindness he showed both me and my staff while he was here. We had a phenomenal first experience with your company and definitely will utilize your services again.

- Stanly Community Christian Ministries

The event was extremely profitable for city residents. The young man was prompt arriving and setting up. residents lined up quickly and there was a constant flow of traffic. The only thing that I really would change would be a larger vehicle. There were quite a few residents that were turned away because the truck was full. All in all, I would count it as a great success.

- City of Fayetteville – Environmental Dept

Your driver Frank was timely and professional. This was a very easy process. I will definitely use them again.

- FM Systems

I will be calling again. Great service.
