Mobile Shredding Services in San Francisco and Northern California

San Francisco Mobile ShreddingWhen you try to think back and account for all the boxes filled with old papers, documents, and records that have begun to stack up over time throughout your San Francisco home or office space, it can be hard to actually believe that only a single thin piece of paper can account for so much clutter and chaos.

Suddenly years after opening your first file cabinet, you’re now swamped in documents, so the question now becomes, what is to be done with it all?

Though the easy thought of just hauling it out to the dumpster behind the building may flash across your mind briefly, quickly cast it aside. Not only is this incredibly irresponsible—both for your employees as well as your customers—but there are also strict laws and regulations that specifically mandate the proper destruction of these sensitive materials.

No one wants a headache and hassle of gathering up and hauling all your documents across the Golden Gate Bridge or any other busy highways and streets to be shredded at a local shredding company or drop off location.

Luckily, however, Shred Nations can solve your problem with the help of our safe and convenient mobile shredding truck services. Shred Nations San Francisco can send a secure mobile shred truck directly your Oakland home or Financial District office curbside, safely destroying your documents on site in our shred truck while you watch.

No matter if you’re near the North Beach or located as far south as San Mateo, Shred Nations mobile shredding services cover the entire San Francisco Bay area. Our shred trucks make document destruction safe and convenient, protecting your company and its customers without requiring a major investment of your already precious time.

There are some old records and documents you simply cannot afford to risk throwing out, ranging from old checks to medical images or legal documents—and everywhere in between. So the true question is, why take the chance of a catastrophic and crippling data breach when a safe and affordable mobile shredding solution is just a click or call away?

General Cost of a San Francisco Mobile Shredding Project

When making business decisions, one of the time-tested constants to any choice made is cost. To exemplify this, let’s quickly just compare the differences in price between using a mobile shredding truck in the San Francisco Bay area, and using one of Shred Nations San Francisco’s drop off shredding locations.

Generally speaking, costs for mobile shredding truck services tend to come to around $100 per visit from a shred truck to your San Francisco location. On the other hand, taking your materials to one of Shred Nations San Francisco’s drop off shredding locations will generally run around $2 per pound of materials needing shredding.

If you were trying to decide your best bet for a shredding project of three, 30-pound boxes of documents, the final cost of either using a mobile shredding service or taking your materials to a Shred Nations San Francisco drop off location would be about the same.

If instead, you had four, 30-pound boxes—or more—it would then make sense to opt for a mobile shredding service over one of our drop off locations. It would not only spare you the time and headache of gather and transporting your documents to our drop off sites, it would also save you a good chunk of change for using a more convenient service as well.

Despite this though, the location of your own home or business should not be discounted in your decision-making process. Obviously, for locations that are on the city outskirts as opposed to being the focal point of a bustling metropolis, chances are that the prices of a mobile shredding service may be slightly higher given the distance.
