Medical Shredding Service You Can Trust

Neighborhood Parcel of Boston MA offers secure, certified medical files shredding services that are a MUST for compliance with data protection and identity theft laws in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. In addition to being compliant with HIPAA, destroying sensitive documents that are no longer being used is vital for keeping company or personal PHI information private and secure.

Why is Medical Files destruction needed?

If you discard your personal records without destroying them, anyone can legally gain access to your files and identity like competitors, litigators, the media, thieves, etc. If you are not securely shredding personal, financial, X-rays or other sensitive medical information, you are breaking the law. In the U.S, it is the law that healthcare organizations handle patient medical records and documents known as “Protected Health Information (PHI)”, with the highest regard for patient privacy. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires that this protected medical information be properly destroyed prior to disposal. Recent changes to HIPAA put more emphasis on the need for Covered Entities, including medical practices, to train their employees on the proper disposal of PHI. Failure to provide such training could be considered willful neglect and result in the highest level of mandatory fines. To get started on purging your old files, call us at 978.636.0301 or request a free shredding quote here.

Office Paper Shredders Are Unproductive

By the time you add up the true cost of shredding your old documents in-house, you will find out that you are wasting your valuable in front of a slow paper shredder in addition to the cost of the actual shredder and the loss of employee productivity. The office shredders are designed for low quantity and often end up taking up more valuable office space and absorbing your time. They will often overheat, cause excessive noise and create a dusty environment for your employees.

3 Things Your Personal Shredder Won’t Do

Medical shredding service company

If you are like me and have been relying on your office personal shredder to destroy your old records and protect your identity, then you must know how time absorbing this task can be. In addition to the noise and the constant blood boiling paper jams! So when I heard that there are commercial companies in my Boston MA neighborhood, I was relieved! Now, I can pay a professional company to destroy my old files and computer media for a fraction of the cost of the personal shredder. Better yet, I don’t have to waste my Saturday afternoons in front of the shredder.


shredding-truck-boston-ma


Here are 3 Things That My Personal Shredder Won’t Do:

  1. Validate HIPAA Compliance: Unless you use a third party to shred your old documents and get valid Certificate of destruction, a personal shredder will not provide you with proof of destruction. This can prove to be costly in case of audit or data breach investigation. HIPAA fines usually start at $4,000 per violation.
  2. Cost Savings: You may think that you are saving money by buying a cheap office shredder at the local office supply store; but when you add up the wasted time and labor cost, you will soon realize that hiring a shredding company is the better option. With rates from 89¢ / Lbs, No Minimums, and No contracts, you can not go wrong!
  3. Time Savings: Personal shredders that promise to shred up to 50 pages per feed can be very deceiving because you will soon find out that you are lucky to get away with 20-page feed at a time. If you decide to test the machine, you will soon find out that the motor overheats fast and that the paper jams will slow you down. These units are designed for light use and for shred as you go models.

I Hate My Personal Office Shredder

My Love-hate relationship with my personal office shredder started a while back while I was working at Medical Firm in Boston MA. As the junior rep, I was always assigned to shred medical records and patient’s files. The office manager thought that having us shred documents and X-rays were saving the practice money, but she was wrong!

I would have my morning Dunkin Donut coffee and head the copier room where the shredder was located, I will have to be super patient mostly when the shredder starts to jam for no reason. This so-called professional Shredder supposedly can handle 20-25 pages at a time but never verified that it could. It will either overheat or jam even when I put 5-10 pages through. After spending hours massaging it, I often end up getting behind on my own work so last week, after getting yelled at! I decided to do some research and see how much my office manager was actually saving.

Our Office Shredder Was A Nightmare

The office shredder was my nightmare and needed to go fast! So all I have to do is show my boss that:

  • I was spending, wasting valuable time in front of the shredder instead of doing my job.
  • The office was wasting payroll dollars on my task.
  • Office staff often complained about the noise and the dust.
  • The documents in the copier room were not 100% secure due to unlimited access to other staff members.
  • The shredded paper was not 100% recycled.

The New Way To Shred Your Personal Documents

I was on a mission! So I started to call the local paper shredding service companies and Neighborhood Parcel seemed to be the cheapest and the most reliable way to take care of our shredding service needs: They have prices posted online, they were transparent in their fees and was easy for me to build my case. I estimated that we shred 10 Boxes a month, something that takes me 20 Hrs to do throughout the month. The cost to shred these 10 Boxes was under $200.00! I shared this with my boss who thought I was the office hero of the month! We hired Neighborhood Parcel and I am pleased that after 6 Month of use, the prices are always exactly what we expect and that every office manager should be open-minded in leaving the shredding to the pros! It is not always cheaper to shred your own office documents, HIPAA often likes to have a verified third-party conduct the shredding so this switch for us was obvious. Personal office shredders are designed for small jobs, one or 2 pages per pass, but for larger quantity, call a shredding company like neighborhood Parcel.

Documents You Should Shred

Identity theft can happen to anyone and in many forms. One of the most frequent forms, that is quite prevalent but can be prevented to safeguard your identity is the procurement of sensitive documents from your wastebasket and municipal garbage collection. When you throw away your credit card statements, utility bills or a magazine addressed to you, it is considered to be public property according to the U.S. Supreme Court. Anyone can legally dig through your trash, and search for personal information such as credit card receipts, account numbers, and even social security numbers. Therefore, it is important that you shred all important personal information before tossing it out in order to prevent identity theft. A good shredder will make collecting your data impossible because your name address or any relevant information will be shredded to micron pieces.

Documents You Should Shred

Here is a list of personal documents you should be shredding before throwing out. When in doubt, a good rule of thumb is to shred anything containing: Your name, your signatures, account numbers, social security numbers, credit card offers, and any legal or medical data such as X-rays or medical reports.

  • Your Bank statements.
  • Bank ATM receipts
  • Old Address labels
  • Canceled or voided checks
  • Documents containing personal data.personal document shredding
  • Credit card bills, carbon copies, summaries and receipts
  • Credit scores reports
  • Legal documents
  • Identification cards
  • Pay stubs
  • Leases, contracts, and letters containing signatures
  • Medical or dental records
  • Tax forms
  • Luggage tags
  • Airplane ticket stubs
  • Utility bills

Identity theft is the biggest source of consumer identity fraud.  Reported throughout TV and social media, this criminal activity continues to grow in the form of unauthorized access to your bank accounts, credit card, social security number, fraudulent loans in your name, and unauthorized internet purchases.  It has been made mandatory by State and Federal laws in many professions, to shred documents with sensitive client information or financial data in order to prevent Identity Theft. Document shredding is becoming more and more a necessity for many businesses and residents.

How To Shred Personal Records

If you are like me, you must have no storage space left or paying extra to store those old file boxes! I closed my personal medical practice years ago and I had to hold on to the patient’s records for a minimum of 7 years. Because of the small apartment space, I had in Boston, Real Estate was at a premium and I was forced to rent a storage space in Newton MA and paid over $200 / Month to maintain it! But when it was time to destroy these dozens of old document boxes, my dilemma started with a so-called personal professional shredder I bought from my Office supply store!

My shredder cost me over $425.00 and promised to shred up to 30 pages per minutes! Well, that was not even close, it was very frustrating and jammed every 2 or 3 cycles, and when it did not jam it overheated! Luckily I still had the receipt and took it back to the store in a hurry. I got my money back after wasting a good part of my weekend.

Today, I am glad to say that I learned something about document shredding: “leave It To The Pros” They do it for a living and have the equipment to handle mass volume. But, who do you call for secure service at best prices?

Choosing The Best Shredding Service

A quick Google search shows dozens of professional shredders offering Mobile shredding, Off-Site shredding and some offer Drop Off shredding service. Others pay Google to put them on the front page of my search so I know that in order to get a big bang for my buck, I had to do some more research. I called most of the shredding service companies in Boston MA and discovered that none offered transparent pricing, they often hide behind disclaimers and never offered me a straight answer. Well, that is almost true with the exception of Neighborhood Parcel. They took my call at first ring and were very genuine in their answers, they were the ONLY shredding company to post their rates online! That showed guts and ethical behavior. But most importantly they were the ONLY company to offer me a convenient drop-off location so I don’t have to pay transportation charges that could add up to $100+.

How I Shred My Documents

After a long research and endless calls, I decided to hire Neighborhood Parcel to shred my personal documents. I took advantage of their drop-off service and ended up spending $285.50 to shred all my boxes. That is cheaper than buying a shredder and wasting my valuable time babysitting it!

What I loved About The Shredding Service:

  • Shredding rates are posted online and exactly what I paid.
  • Drop Of Service has no minimum.
  • Paid $15 / Box
  • Drop Off service was convenient, Saturday Hours are available.
  • The staff helped me offload my Mini Cooper.
  • Received My Certificate Of Destruction as promised.
