Mobile Shredders

Mobile shredders are portable industrial shredders that are mounted on trucks and travel to businesses and residences for on-site shredding. Instead of transporting sensitive information and shredding it off-site where the risk of accidental loss or intentional misuse of sensitive information is possible, some companies ask document destruction operations to destroy documents under their supervision.

Industry Information

Mobile Shredders

Identity and information theft is a real threat to business and individuals. As people realize this, the demand for mobile shredding services increases. Mobile shredding is mostly used by large corporations, businesses, hospitals and government agencies that have large amounts of documents they need destroyed. Many institutions use mobile shredders because of strict privacy laws that require witnesses to sensitive document destruction, like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, the Gram-Leach-Billey Act and the Fair and Accurate Credit Transaction Act. Besides office paper and documents, other sources of information, including CDs, DVDs, hard drives and credit cards are often shredded this way.

Shredding trucks are usually mid sized box trucks, specially modified to haul and power an industrial shredder. Half of the truck is designated for the shredding equipment, while the other half is left as a payload area for the material to be shredded. Most trucks are able to shred about 8 thousand pounds of documents in an hour, and can transport anywhere from 6 to 15 thousand pounds of shredded paper. After the on-site shredding takes place, the paper is taken to a recycling center, where it is made into new paper products. Even though mobile shredders eliminate information custody issues, it's important for document destruction companies to hire trustworthy employees that have passed criminal and credit background checks. Many companies fingerprint their workers. There are several benefits associated with mobile shredding besides added security. Many companies provide customers with large bins and containers to keep their paper in until is has been shredded. Companies don't have to deal with purchasing or maintaining a shredder of their own, meaning no maintenance, bags or cleanup. Since the shredders travel to the site, the hassle of transportation has been eliminated. Customers can make appointments as necessary, or work out a scheduled service. Although mobile shredding is the easiest and safest method of shredding, it isn't costly when you factor in all the employee hours that would be spent hand shredding.
