Shredding On-site vs Off-site

TrueShred offers on-site and off-site shredding for you convenience. On-site shredding is great for businesses that are looking for immediate destruction that you get to witness first-hand. Mobile shredders are custom designed vehicles with a built-in, industrial shredder that come directly to your place of business and shred materials on the spot. Customers are encouraged to observe the procedure, and are issued a Certificate of Destruction prior to departure.

Off-site shredding is best for businesses that have less time to focus on shredding. This service is as simple as moving all of your documents to our secure, locked bins, then leaving them for us to collect and shred. We’ll take the documents to our secure, off-site facility to destroy at a later time. Unlike other shredding companies, we maintain a strict chain of custody of your documents to ensure they don’t end up in the wrong hands in the shredding process. Just like on-site shredding, you’ll be issued a Certificate of Destruction once we are done.
