Hard Drive Shredding Time?

Do you have hard drives lying around holding sensitive data that need destroying? Do you have any storage devices containing personally identifiable information (PII) at your place of business or remote worksite?

Deleting information is not the same as destroying it. With the proper technology and knowledge, deleted files can easily be recovered. These devices are also taking up valuable space in work areas and could be a liability for your business. The Data Vault ensures electronic information is unrecoverable by shredding the actual hard drive and other media devices.

The Data Vault’s hard drive shredding service offers your business a secure solution for preventing the theft of digital data stored on your media devices. Need to destroy other types of digital media? We offer media destruction for other digital devices too.

Does your company have a need for regularly scheduled shredding services? We make it easy and cost-effective to securely dispose of your sensitive and confidential business information. With The Data Vault’s scheduled destruction services, you get the peace of mind that comes from knowing your hard drives, media, and documents are being destroyed and recycled in accordance with industry best practices.

Our drivers arrive at your location according to the schedule you set up with us. Your empty bins replace your full bins, which are placed on our truck with the lids still locked. They remain locked until they reach our secure facility. For media and hard drive destruction, we bring our mobile shredding truck, “The Data Shark,” and destroy all of your digital media on-site at your facility.
At your request, The Data Vault will provide you with a Certificate of Destruction after each scheduled shredding service.
