DeVries vs. the Big Guys

A small businessman standing with his arms up and smiling happily near a giant leg in trousers and shoe lying near him, on the concrete gray background.When I plan a vacation, I organize everything in advance. This approach may not work for everyone, but it suits me perfectly. During one of my trips, I needed to book a rental car. The local accommodation owner recommended three independent local companies instead of the well-known international brands. Initially, I considered choosing a big name for convenience. However, supporting a local business intrigued me, so I decided to investigate further. To my delight, I discovered that the local company offered better prices for equally high-quality vehicles. The owners were kind, accommodating, and appreciative of my business. Online reviews confirmed their excellence.

The Search Is On

When searching for a full-service records management company to handle records storage, scanning, data vaulting, and shredding, it might be tempting to choose a large, national firm without much research under the assumption that their services and customer support may be superior to other options. However, DeVries Business Services can match or even surpass what these large companies offer. We may be small, but we offer a comprehensive suite of services tailored to your business needs.

Bigger Is Not Always Better

Identifying your records management needs is crucial to finding the right partner. There may be important benefits or necessities that the big companies overlook. Consider the following points to determine what’s essential for your business:

1. Local Presence

Big companies are nationally recognized with facilities across the country, but are they truly local and convenient? DeVries specifically serves communities in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. Here are some valuable reasons to choose a local business:

  • Proximity: Quick access means less time and money spent on travel.
  • Community Investment: Local businesses are invested in the community and value their clients.

2. Multi-Service Offerings

Large companies often focus on one or two services, like records storage or document shredding. DeVries Business Services offers a more affordable and convenient multi-service approach. Consider which of these services are important to your business:

Why shop around for additional services when you can get everything you need under one roof?

3. Community Investment

As a local business, DeVries supports and invests in the community. We purchase locally when possible, helping the local business community grow and increasing employment opportunities. We also believe in the importance of secure shredding for everyone, which is why we regularly offer free community shred days.

4. Longevity

A company with a long history of serving customers is a foundation of trust and stability. DeVries has been in business for over 25 years. We’ve survived challenges, learned what works, and consistently met customer expectations. Choosing a records management company with a solid history should be a priority.

  • Family-Run Business: Family-owned records management companies often provide more personal and high-quality service because they are built on relationships. Our business was founded on individual clients, and every customer matters. Family businesses tend to excel in problem-solving and ensuring excellence, and we’ve proven this true time and again.
  • Environmental Responsibility: DeVries cares about the local environment. We ensure that shredded materials are recycled and that e-waste from electronic storage devices is properly disposed of. We are committed to preventing waste from ending up in landfills or harming the environment.
