What is Mobile Shredding?

Mobile Shredding TruckMobile or Onsite Shredding is where a professional shredding company provides secure, locked bins for your office where you can place documents that you need to shred.  When you’re ready to have your documents shredded, a mobile shred truck comes out to your home or office to shred the documents while you watch.

A service provider usually charges a fee based on how much you need to shred, but if you have more than three boxes of documents, it’s usually more cost-effective than using a drop-off service.

Advantages of Mobile Shredding

Watch Your Documents Be Shredded

Mobile shredding is great for when you have sensitive documents or are concerned with how long your personal information is retained before it’s shredded.  Your documents are secured in locked containers and then shredded right there while you watch.  Our shredding professionals never come into physical contact with your documents at any time.

Schedule On-Going Shredding Service

Having a regularly scheduled shredding management plan will help prevent legal liability and data breaches in your company.  One-time purges work well when you have a large volume of documents, but a mobile service can provide ongoing pickups to prevent the buildup of papers to be shredded, and minimize the chance of a low-tech hack.

Handle Negotiable Instruments Properly

If you have documents or items that could be exchanged for cash, having them shredded while you watch ensures are properly destroyed.  Negotiable instruments include coupons, unused checks, certificates, and more.

Save Valuable Time

The biggest advantage of mobile shredding is the time it saves you. Mobile shredding services will pick up and shred all your documents for you, all you have to do is schedule a time for the shred truck to come to your home or office.  Not only is it secure, it eliminates the hassle and takes multiple steps out of shredding your documents.

As you can see, mobile shredding also has some significant advantages.  Depending on how much you have to shred and your tolerance for hauling your documents to a drop off location, mobile shredding might be the right answer.
