Hard Drive Destruction Service Cost

If you’re looking into the hard drive destruction service cost, contact Gigacycle for a free quote. We offer an accredited hard drive destruction service, including shredding and erasure solutions, as well as free computer recycling collections. Please book destruction services now through our secure website or get in touch with our office to enquire about pricing.



    How Much Does It Cost to Destroy a Hard Drive?

    How much it costs to destroy a hard drive is dependent on several different factors. This includes the services you need, the experience of the company you use and the type of waste you want to destroy. For example, paper shredding for confidential waste is going to be a different price to shredding secure hard drives and generating a certificate of destruction. 

    When you get in touch with an IT asset destruction company for a quote, always check what the service covers. This includes whether collections are free, how many hard drives they can take, whether their shredders are mobile and how they handle your business waste securely. 

    Contact Gigacycle today for a quote. We can also provide more information about how we securely shred hard drives and other media.

    What is the Best Way to Destroy a Hard Drive?

    The best form of hard drive destruction will come down to different company needs, from those who want a secure data destruction service to businesses wishing to witness their hard drives being physically shred into small particles. 

    One of the most popular hard drive destruction methods is a shredding service. Imagine this process like you would paper shredding. Hard drives are placed through a machine which will shred the device into pieces. Much like paper shredding, the hard drive can’t be recovered – it’s completely destroyed.

    However, you may also choose data erasure as an alternative to hard drive shredding. This process allows the hard drive to be reused after confidential information on the device is completely overwritten.

    What Happens If the Hard Drive is Damaged?

    If a hard drive is damaged, it doesn’t mean that confidential data can’t be accessed. To ensure you comply with your data protection responsibilities, you must use a secure destruction service, whether it’s hard drive shredding, degaussing or data erasure. You must then keep each hard drive certificate of destruction for your records.

    Why Choose Gigacycle for Destruction & Shredding Services?

    From securely erasing data from IT assets to permanently shredding hard drives using certified techniques, there are endless reasons why you should hire Gigacycle.

    Get a Certificate of Destruction
