What Are the Top Benefits of Mobile Shredding?

It’s becoming more common to see mobile shredding vehicles on the road. There’s a good chance you may have even come across one in your office complex parking lot. It’s no coincidence; mobile shredding offers a host of business benefits. Here we highlight some of the advantages that mobile shredding offers your company. 

Reliable Fraud Protection

With in-house shredding, fraud protection only goes so far. As soon as your bag of shredded material lands in the dumpster, it’s fair game for anyone with bad intentions. Mobile shredding offers a far more reliable fraud protection solution. Secure shredding collection containers delivered to your business allow documents and whole files to be dropped through the slot in a matter of seconds without the need to remove staples, paper clips or other fasteners. On a weekly or monthly basis, your containers are emptied and the contents are professionally destroyed on-site at your place of business as you watch.

Regulatory Compliance 

Whether you’re a retailer, medical provider, lawyer or financial adviser, you have a legal responsibility to protect your clients and customers from identity theft. If a regulator comes knocking on your door, you must be able to prove your compliance with the law. Otherwise, your company may face stiff fines and penalties.

Another advantage of mobile shredding is that it ensures due diligence when keeping up with privacy regulations. There’s never an issue of when, where and how your documents are destroyed. A Certificate of Destruction issued during destruction offers documented proof of your company’s compliance with state and federal privacy laws.

Convenience and Flexibility

A big benefit of mobile shredding is convenience and flexibility, as service is fully tailored to your document disposal needs. You can schedule on-site destruction on a daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly basis. And as your shredding requirements change, the service can be easily scaled to give you seamless privacy protection.

Environmental Sustainability

Environmental sustainability and mobile shredding go hand-in-hand. After your documents are shredded into small, unreadable pieces, they are shipped to a paper recycling plant where nothing goes to waste. There, the shredded material is baled, pulped, and recycled into a variety of business and consumer products. And since you’re not relying on a plugged-in paper shredder for document destruction, your business consumes less energy.

The benefits of mobile shredding are undeniable. Maybe it’s time for your business to take advantage of them.
