Mobile shredding Houston helps prevent identity theft and provides easy and convenient on-site shredding solutions for your business or personal needs.
Data Shredding Services provides a full range of document shredding services, including mobile shredding, also known as on-site shredding to individuals, organizations, and business customers throughout the Houston area! Mobile document shredding provides clients with the added convenience of having a document destruction facility brought right to their doorstep.
On-site services entail dispatching a mobile shredding truck to the customer’s location, allowing for instant document destruction. Clients will not have to worry about power consumption since the mobile shredding trucks are self-contained, meaning they carry their own power supply. Although clients are asked to remove any plastics and flammables as well as any other hazardous materials from their documents, staples and rubberbands do not have to be removed.
Mobile Shredding Requirements
Although Data Shredding Services’ mobile shredding services provide incredible convenience, there are some requirements that must be met to ensure a successful shredding event. Mobile shredding trucks sometimes only have limited access to the building’s loading docks, which in turn limits the duration of the event. Clients who want to take advantage of onsite shredding services are advised to ensure that enough space is reserved to accommodate the mobile shredding truck on the day of the service.
Another consideration is cleanup. Mobile shredding events can leave a large amount of clutter behind when purging boxed records. Our customers are responsible for the cleanup or discarding of their empty file boxes or other containers unless specific arrangements have been made with our service. Clients are therefore encouraged to make arrangements ahead of time to facilitate the cleanup process following the shredding event.
Mobile ‘On-Site’ Shredding Houston – Shredding documents on-site is certainly the most convenient option for most companies. It is also a very safe way for companies to shred their documents. However, it’s important for clients to understand that although mobile shredding is often more convenient, it can be more time consuming. Whereas an off-site shredding facility can shred between 8,000 and 12,000 lbs. per hour, mobile shredding equipment typically handles between 1,500 and 2,000 lbs. an hour, which means a mobile shredding service can take up to four times as long as off-site shredding.
Is Mobile Document Destruction Right for Me?
In the end, it is all about the preference of the client. Off-Site shredding may be cheaper and more cost effective, but it entails a lot more work on the part of the client. The transportation of the documents to the facility also entails a certain degree of risk, especially if the documents are extremely sensitive in nature. All these hassles are easily avoided by opting for an On-Site Shredding service.
