From private letters to bank statements, our selection of home and personal shredders keep your personal information out of the hands of identity thieves. These compact shredders are designed for light to moderate use.
When it comes to the best paper shredder for individual users at home, Fellowes offers reliable, long lasting identity theft prevention. Every home paper shredder from Fellowes delivers powerful shredding performance for all your confidential documents.
Protecting your identity at home requires a personal shredder. The best shredders for home use shred junk mail, credit cards, staples, paper clips and CDs. Personal shredders also come in handy during tax time when old tax information needs to be properly destroyed.
Personal shredders are also ideal for decluttering the home. Shredding documents minimizes waste and ensures no confidential documents are accidentally discarded in the trash.
When choosing a personal shredder, look for one with the best run time to fit your needs. Run time is how long the shredder can operate before it needs a cool down period. If you shred only occasionally, then a lower run time will work well. If you shred often, then longer run times may be necessary. Consider how much you shred at one time and check the shredder packaging to see what machine fits your shredding needs. (what about energy efficiency?)
Personal shredders also have features that make shredding easier. Safety features are critical if pets and kids are around your home office. Look for a Fellowes shredder with SafeSense™, which shuts down the machine any time hands or paws come in close contact of the shredder opening.
Cross-cut shredders are one of the most commonly selected machines for personal use. They offer a balance between security and performance that provides peace of mind for most users. When selecting a shredder, also be sure to also get oil and bags for regular shredder use.
