What is a Mobile Shredding Truck?

A mobile shredding truck comes with industrial shredders that bring professional shredding to your curbside. Our trucks make it possible to provide routine services with multiple stops while collecting high volumes of destroyed media. They feature exceptionally powerful machines that can destroy up to 8,000 pounds of paper an hour, as well as shred CDs, DVDs, hard drives, and more.

How a Shred Truck Works

A shredding truck looks similar to a residential garbage truck but is much more complex. Here’s how it works:

Step 1: The truck’s control panel opens a mechanical arm and secures the shred bin to the automatic grip lift system. Most trucks are compatible with 64, 68, and 96-gallon bins.

Step 2: The bin is lifted and the materials are dumped into the truck’s hopper lid. The empty bin then goes back down and another can take its place.

Step 3: The contents of the bin(s) are run through the shredder. A spinning rotor pierces, rips, and shreds the materials. When the shreds are small enough, they fall through a sizing screen and are pushed into the truck’s cargo area. Then, the shreds mix and compact with materials from other stops.

What are the Benefits?

The greatest advantage of mobile shredding is that you can witness the entire shredding process. Witnessed shredding provides peace of mind and legal compliance. It is an easy way to boost security measures for your home or business.

Another advantage of mobile shredding is its convenience. Not only is shredding completed at your location, but the entire process takes only a few minutes. You can safely destroy large amounts of documents without a huge disruption to your day.

Furthermore, mobile shredding services comply with all federal and state privacy regulations. Our services fulfill HIPAA, FACTA, and GLBA standards to meet legal requirements across all industries.

Is Mobile Shredding Right for Me?

Mobile shredding is ideal for projects of 90 pounds or more. It is cost-effective and saves you the hassle of shredding yourself or traveling to a shredding provider. Although, if you have less than 90 pounds, we suggest using a drop-off location.

Mobile shredding services can also be completed as often as needed with regularly scheduled shredding or as a one-time purge. One-time purges allow you to get rid of all your paper clutter at once, while recurring services remove the hassle of having to schedule a service each time you need one.

Mobile shredding is excellent for business and residential services. It is a secure and affordable option that ensures the proper handling of your documents and the protection of your privacy.
