Requirements for On-Site Document Shredding
An issue that many on-site shredding services face is the fact that many companies in larger Metropolitan areas have little access to the building’s loading docks. This severely limits the amount of time that a Mobile Shredding facility can be utilized. It is recommended that you ensure that sufficient space is available to the Mobile Shredding facility on the day that you require their services.
Another consideration that you need to take into account when hiring a document shredding service is the cleanup. Document shredding can leave behind a significant mess; therefore it is important for clients to make arrangements in regards to the cleanup process when the shredding is completed.
On-site shredding is by far the most convenient and safe way for any company to benefit from shredding services. That being said, this convenience comes at the expense of speed. Our On-Site shredding trucks are only capable of shredding 1,500-2,000 lbs. of material per hour, whereas Off-Site facilities can shred 8,000-12,000 lbs. per hour. It will take a shredding truck roughly four times as long as a facility to shred the same volume of material.
Is Mobile Document Shredding Right for Me?
When choosing the right document shredding service for you, it really boils down to your preference. Off-site shredding might be cheaper and more cost-effective, but it required a significant amount of extra effort for the client. If your documents contain sensitive information, then there is also a certain degree of risk in the transportation of those documents to the facility. These hassles can be easily avoided by instead opting for an On-site document shredding service.
Regardless of which service you choose, with Data Shredding Services Texas, Inc. in San Antonio, you are guaranteed fair and reasonable pricing for document shredding services that are always top-notch.
Why Is On-Site or Mobile Shredding More Expensive?
The reason that On-Site Mobile Shredding Services is often more expensive than Off-Site or Plant based document destruction has absolutely nothing to do with security, but is due to the operational cost factors involved. The Mobile Shredding Units are self-contained, and powered by diesel. Although these shredding trucks do a great job in destroying confidential documents they do not do so well in terms of fuel efficiency. The Mobile Shredding Units shredding systems are actually powered by the diesel fuel from the unit.
In addition, Mobile Shredding Trucks are limited in their destruction capacity and are only capable of shredding a fraction of the material of that of the Shredding Systems found at Off-Site Facilities. Most On-Site vehicles are capable of shredding 1,500-2,000 lbs of material per hour, whereas Off-Site Shredding Facilities are capable of shredding 8,000-12,000 lbs of material per hour. As a result, Off-Site Facilities are not only better equipped to handle large volumes for purges or clean outs, but are more cost effective, therefore offering better prices to customers.
