Under contract? We can help cover your buyout costs!

With our costs being so competitive, we often find that potential new customers would like to start to use our services immediately, however when they speak with their existing supplier, they are unknowingly tied into a contract.   A lot of other shredding companies will auto renew your contract so what was initially a 3 year contract, will turn into a 6 year one, unless you provide 3 months’ notice prior to your contract expiry date.  All this happens without even contacting you for your approval!

At Highlander, we promise to contact each of one of our customers at your contract renewal and personally discuss the renewal with you!

We will always help and guide you as much as we can when you are speaking with your existing supplier to end your contract, and depending upon the terms and your cancellation fee, we may be able to assist with buying you out of your old contract so that you can start using our services quicker.

As a high-quality scanning bureau, Crisp Documents Ltd look to work in partnership with the best companies within our sphere. Highlander International fit perfectly into that position. The quality and speed of service coupled with friendly, easy to deal with partner contacts make the process of securely disposing of our client’s documentation a very easy job.

McPhersons Document Management & Scanning

“We have used Highlander International recycling for a couple of years now (at least twice a month they supply very large secure containers for our staff to fill) and have always found their staff to be friendly, professional and always happy to help no matter what the question. More so, we have found their systems and processes to be secure and confidential to meet all our confidential destruction needs. In our line of work, we must ensure our customer's paperwork/data is secure at all times, from the point we collect it, to scanning and digitise on to archive storage/scan on demand and then finally secure and confidential destruction. We decided to change suppliers a couple of years ago due to price rises and looked at several similar businesses. Highlander offered us a site visit to their premises which we found to be very secure and met our needs as well as our client's strict confidential requirements. Financially, we found them to be the best in the market. We would have no hesitation in recommending their confidential destruction service.”

As we are a financial services organisation it is imperative that our data and members data is handled safely and professionally. We have been delighted with the service provided by Highlander to date and look forward to a long term relationship in the future. All in all, they combine great customer service with flexibility and reliability and we would not hesitate to recommend their services.”

“We started using Highlander International Recycling earlier this year and couldn’t be happier with the service we have received so far. The team are great – both in the office and out on the road – always a pleasure to speak to and very quick to respond. Although we don’t have a huge amount of material to be recycled, we feel they give us the same attention as they would one of their bigger clients. Thank you, Highlander!”

"Very professional service, quick response time and uplift for collections. Their staff are polite and courteous and have no issue uplifting bags from higher floors or harder to access areas. Very efficient company and destruction certificate is promptly e-mailed with no need to chase it up. We are glad to have switched to this company and they are much more competitively priced that our previous shredding company. We would highly recommend."
