We would like to welcome one of our new Associate Members, James Dowse, COO for Timeshred, a paper shredding service provider. Please take a moment to read about Jim, Timeshred, and what they are doing to help support the nonprofit community, businesses, and homes.
NRH: Thanks for sitting with us today, Jim. Welcome to the Nonprofit Resource Hub! Can you tell us about Timeshred?
JD: We offer the following:
- On-time shredding for businesses
- Scheduled or Ongoing Office Shredding Programs
- Residential Shredding
- Shredding Events
NRH: What is your company’s motto?
JD: Call us today to shred your documents tomorrow.
NRH: Can you tell us about your role at Timeshred?
JD: I’m the COO, I’m responsible for all aspects of the running of the company.
NRH: What is your personal motto?
JD: Negative thoughts will never give you a positive life.
NRH: That’s a great motto! Can you tell us about your team at Timeshred?
JD: Our entire in-office team knows how to sell shredding so when you call a real person answers the phone. They will explain our services, give you a quote and set up your appointment as soon as tomorrow. All of our service techs are well trained and will do all the work for you, even carrying your documents up or downstairs if necessary.
NRH: Can you tell us how Timeshred supports the nonprofit community?
JD: We offer flexible shredding programs to meet the individual needs of each organization. We can also help nonprofits host shredding events to generate donations.
NRH: Do you have any events, programs, or promotions running right now (or in the near future) you think the NRH community would benefit from?
JD: Not right now, but we know a lot of people are taking advantage of their time at home right now and are cleaning out their houses. We encourage everyone to shred their documents accordingly. One question I’m asked often is if we provide services to residential homes. We do. We will send a truck right to your house and the shredding will be done through the truck in real-time. You never have to worry of your persona information wasn’t shredded with us.
NRH: James, if there is one nugget professional of wisdom you want to share with our community, what would it be?
JD: Focus on your website so people can find your business or organization.
NRH: What are the goals for Timeshred as you move forward into 2022?
JD: Continue to grow the business through marketing and networking.
NRH: What are you most looking forward to as a new Associate Member with the NRH?
JD: Being able to help nonprofits protect their private information on paper.
NRH: We encourage all of our Members and Partners to work on building our community and relationships within. How can we get in touch with you? What is your preferred method of communication?
JD: Phone: (516) 690-8999
