5 Ways a Mobile Shredding Service Benefits Your Business
Your office has a treasure trove of expired documents. What’s your solution for getting rid of them? To save time, do you push them aside, hoping to tackle shredding later? Or do you devote several hours each month to destroying them with your paper shredder? In this blog, we discuss how a mobile shredding service benefits your business.
1. Anytime, Anywhere Document Destruction
Having to lug documents to an office supply store for destruction is expensive, inconvenient, and time consuming. Whether you need your documents destroyed at your primary business location, satellite office or storage facility, a mobile shredding provider can shred them whenever it’s most convenient for you.
2. Privacy Protection
Off-site shredding and destruction companies transport their customers’ documents to a shredding plant. On the way to the shredding plant, many things can happen to your information, including theft. A mobile shredding service eliminates this risk. Your information never leaves your business. Screened professionals collect your documents and destroy them on-site while you watch. The mobile shredding truck features a video verification system that records the entire destruction process.
3. Time Savings
In-house shredding is time consuming. Your employees must remove paperclips and staples from documents and slowly feed a few sheets at a time into the paper shredder. If the machine jams, it must be fixed. Paper scraps must be cleaned up and the shredding receptacle needs to be emptied. These tasks pull your employees away from their core responsibilities.
Mobile shredding helps your business stay productive. Your mobile shredding provider places security containers throughout your facility, allowing sensitive documents to be discarded fast and securely. Weekly, monthly or quarterly, the contents are collected and destroyed on-site at your business.
4. Cost Savings
In-house shredding isn’t free. Time, employee labor, and shredder upkeep costs add up. A mobile shredding service eliminates the need to buy shredders, repair them when they break, and use employee labor to destroy documents. For a low fee, your documents are routinely destroyed.
5. Compliance Assurance
Many state and federal privacy laws require businesses to have written and verifiable information destruction policies and procedures. To avoid non-compliance penalties, organizations must be able to prove these policies and procedures. A mobile shredding service provides a Certificate of Destruction that proves your compliance with regulatory standards.
