4 Reasons Mobile Shredding Beats Off-Site Shredding
Mobile shredding involves confidential documents being shredded at your place of business, using a truck equipped with a document destruction system. Off-site shredding, sometimes called plant-based shredding, refers to your sensitive documents being shredded at a secure facility operated by your document shredding service.
While both services are readily offered, mobile shredding offers the following benefits over shredding off-site:
Your documents never leave your premises intact, and you have the opportunity to witness the destruction process. There is never any issue of whether every single piece of paper made it to the off-site facility or if they were completely destroyed, because they were shredded before the truck left. To increase the security of your documents, your shredded material is mixed with shredded material from other sources, making it impossible to reconstruct.
2. Convenience & Flexibility
You have the freedom to add last-minute documents while the shred truck is on site. Additionally, if you anticipate needing to have sensitive documents shredded on a specific day, such as for a quarterly file purge or file room cleanout, you can schedule the on-site service accordingly.
Your service provider will likely work with you on pricing and a plan that fits your needs. Even if the price of on-site shredding is slightly higher than off-site, in the long run, it is more cost effective to keep your staff focused on their core tasks than sorting and preparing documents for off-site shredding.
4. Peace of Mind
When your documents are securely destroyed on site, you have no concerns about whether some of your papers were misplaced, lost to the wind, or stolen in transit or at the destruction center. You won’t have to worry what will happen to your documents should the truck break down on the way to the shredding plant or be concerned with how long your documents will sit unattended at the shredding facility or left in the open before they are destroyed.
Consider these key benefits of having a professional, mobile shredding company look after your sensitive document shredding needs.
