What Type of Cardboard Shredder Do I Need?

You know your business could benefit from a Cardboard Shredder, but which model do you choose?

We all know that paper shredders are a necessity for any office.But what about a Cardboard Shredder? Do you really need one?

Paper shredders are used to shred papers and letters with important or sensitive information. Since we don't write our PPS numbers on cardboard very often, cardboard shredders have a different purpose.

Any business or warehouse that accumulates large volumes of cardboard needs this machine.

In fact, over 100 billion cardboard boxes are used worldwide every year, so chances are you have some laying around your office.

When choosing a cardboard shredder, it helps to know that there are different options. Read on to learn how to choose one that suits your particular needs ...

 

Why You Need a Cardboard Shredder

Most companies are unaware that Cardboard Shredders even exist. These machines can save space and reduce waste. Plus, they're eco-friendly.

When you shred your cardboard boxes, you will end up with soft cardboard strips or a pliable cardboard matting that can be used as a really useful cost-effective packaging voidfill.

Cardboard is far better for the environment than other packaging materials, such as styrofoam, bubble wrap, or plastic.

You are also saving costs by not having to buy additional packaging materials.

 

Cardboard Shredders for Small Volumes

Cardboard shredders generally come in three different sizes. The small volume size is perfect for stores that don't have a lot of cardboard waste.

These machines are actually small enough to sit on a desk. You can generally only shred on a sheet of cardboard at a time, but they are quieter than a vacuum cleaner.

This would be a great investment for any shop. Especially since it doesn't take up a lot of space.

We actually use this Cardboard Shredder ourselves, so you are welcome to call in to the Box Depot shop in Dublin 10 if you would like to see it in action!

Cardboard Shredders for Medium to Large Volumes

The medium to large volume Cardboard Shredder works great in warehouses.

These models are too big to sit on a desk, since they have a larger motor. The added bonus is that you can choose a Single-Phase Cardboard Shredder (that uses a normal 13A plug into a standard wall socket) or a Three-Phase Cardboard Shredder.

These machines are ideal for warehouses that want to cut down on waste and save money.

Large Volume Cardboard Shredders

If you are working in a distribution center, you will need a Cardboard Shredder for large volumes.

These machines can fit any size of cardboard.

The convenient thing about cardboard shredders, even large volume models, is that even though they are more powerful, they don't take up much more space.
