Mobile document destruction is one of the paper shredding options that are available for your business. Few businesses now conduct their own shredding because of the cost of buying a high grade shredder and employing somebody to do the work for them.
Furthermore, using a company that collects and removes the paper before destroying means that you are left wondering whether the load made it to its final destination or whether it went missing en route. Mobile document destruction gives you the peace of mind that comes from being able to witness the shredding take place. It is also a convenient option because you can arrange for regular collections or simply ring up when you are being swamped by waste paper.
Regular Collections And Destruction
Whether you run a small business or a large organisation you will almost certainly use paper for printing, taking notes, and storing important data. Most of this paper has a natural life and once it reaches the end of its life it becomes necessary to find a convenient and secure method to destroy it.
Mobile document destruction can be used on a regular basis or as and when it is required according to the needs of your organisation. You can simply call the document shredding service to let them know that you have a load ready for destruction or you can arrange for weekly, fortnightly, or monthly collections.
Cross Hatch Shredding
One of the problems with in-house shredding is that businesses tend to look for ways to save money when buying the shredding equipment. This means that many will opt for a single cut shredder that makes only a single pass over the paper.
Single cut shredding is not entirely secure because it is possible for a diligent data thief to be able to piece the paper back together. Cross hatch shredding that is offered by mobile document destruction services is considerably more secure because the paper is destroyed in such a way that it is virtually impossible to piece together.
A mobile document shredding van will come to your premises and conduct the shredding there and then. This means that you can be sure the paper has been shredded before being removed for disposal.
If the paper is removed and driven away before it is shredded it is possible, albeit unlikely, that the paper will go missing or even be stolen while in transit. If you have sensitive data that should not make it into the hands of another person then you need to choose the most secure service possible.
Witness The Shredding
Because the shredding takes place outside your premises this means that you can witness the shredding take place or have one of your team do this. The process is quick and safe, and you will be given the opportunity to inspect the paper once it has been destroyed.
Some of your customers may demand the highest levels of security and you will certainly want to ensure that your own company accounts and other sensitive data is kept entirely secure. Watching the shredding means that you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing the job was done properly and securely.
Recycling And Removal
Paper can be recycled and this helps minimise our impact on the environment. Rather than having to cut down more trees, your waste paper is combined with waste paper from other sources and can then be used to create new paper or any other paper based items.
Using a mobile document shredding service means that your data will be securely destroyed before being removed and recycled properly and effectively.
