What Are the Advantages of Mobile Shredding?

Mobile shredding is not only one of the most convenient and affordable ways to shred, it also saves time, provides security, and creates a paper trail with a certificate of destruction.

Save Time

Gathering and transporting documents to an offsite shredder takes time. With mobile shredding the truck comes to you and collects all your documents and carries them out to the truck for you. This helps save time, and when you pre-schedule your shredding services you hardly have to think about the process at all.

Security

With other shredding services, you are not able to see your documents being shredded firsthand. Mobile shredding is done on-site so that you can witness the destruction of your documents right in front of your eyes, giving you an even greater sense of security. 

Certificate of Destruction

Certificate of Destruction

The mobile shredding contractor provides you with a certificate of destruction to legally document the proper disposal of your confidential documents. This describes the details of your service, including where and when the destruction took place. This protects your business in case of an audit or other legal troubles.
