Shredding Truck: Lucky Number Seven for Lincoln Archives
The addition of the seventh truck aids to the continued success of Lincoln Archives
As 2017 approaches, Lincoln Archives is hoping the saying “lucky number seven” reins true in more ways than one. In December 2016, a seventh service truck was added to the fleet of high-secure trucks carrying out 10 different services. In fitting with “lucky number seven”, below describes seven ways in which this addition makes an impact on Lincoln Archives and within the Western New York area.
1. Service Stables As described, our service trucks allow for 10 different services to be offered to fit the varying needs of clients. From transporting files to and from our storage facility, to shredding confidential documents from hundreds of offices-both on-site and off-site, to serving as a mobile shredding truck for community shred events, our trucks serve as a stable for our business.
2. Security Measures The security that is maintained through every aspect of business is not disregarded during transit. State-of the-art locking security system and satellite tracking aids to the high- security measures taken involving our trucks and in all aspects of the business. This attention to security in addition to protecting our clients has enable us to be the only family-owned shredding company in WNY that is NAID AAA Certified.
3. Service with a Smile It goes without saying, but it’s the drivers of our trucks are who make these services possible. Ensuring security is maintained throughout all steps of transport while providing excellent customer, our drivers make a huge impact on the business. One driver, in particular, is known for his customer service through his smile alone. Stay tuned for an upcoming blog on of who this “radiant ear-to-ear smile” belongs to.
4. Paper Needs Still Needed With the sixth truck added almost a year ago, the expansion of our fleet demonstrates the continued need for our services and desire from clients, some who’ve been with us almost 25 years and some who’ve been serviced the first-time last month. While some organizations have gone paper-less, the need to increase our number of trucks to cater to needs, most involving document services, showcases that this entity is still entirely present in many organizations. In addition to document services, our Data-Back-Up and Recovery services help those organizations who have gone paperless to protect their data against Malware and viruses using Asiga products.
5. Loving Local The addition of the seventh truck not supports us as a small local company but allows for the support of fellow small and/or family-owned businesses in our services areas which spans from Buffalo to Rochester to Springville to Niagara Falls. As the common sayings “Buy Local, Stay Local” the support of our business goes directly to support other business in the area compared to our national competitors.
6. Defying the Odds Similar to the above point, the support of local businesses impacts society in more ways than one, however businesses, small or not don’t survive past ten years (INC. Magazine). With just one truck in the fleet when the business began 1992, the continued increase of trucks over an approximate 25-year time frame proves the Lincoln Archives refused to be another
7. Lucky number seven in 2017 The seventh truck is set the hit the streets late December, the same time as some clients are receiving a mini-trucks for their desk. If you see any of our now seven trucks on the streets, feel free to wave hi to our drivers, give the office a call to say hi or even schedule a service for yourself or organization.
