    Where Can I Find a Hard Drive Shredding Service?

    If looking for an IT asset disposal expert, always ensure they're accredited and perform secure end-to-end services. This means that when you have a hard drive you want to shred, they can come out to collect it in one of their secure vehicles and take it to a specialist data destruction centre. Here, approved methods will be used to shred the hard drive. At Gigacycle, we can even shred assets at your business site if you need us to. As part of our secure hard drive destruction service, we'll even produce a certificate of destruction for all assets and hard drives destroyed at our site.

    Do You Offer Confidential Paper Shredding?

    No. While a data and hard drive destruction are often similar to paper shredding, we mainly specialise in IT asset disposal services, helping you meet the terms of your data privacy policy.

    Is Shredding Hard Drive Equipment Easy?

    Shredding hard drive equipment and media requires expert know-how. Our advanced shredders use approved methods to shred assets down into tiny pieces. You can imagine this is a bit like paper shredding - but for IT assets (like hard drives) instead! It's a highly secure destruction method which we're happy for you to witness.

    Is a Hard Drive Destruction Service Permanent?

    If you choose a hard drive security shredding service, the results are permanent. We can break hard drives down into parts as small as 6mm, depending on the shredding widths chosen. If you want to use your hard drive again, it wouldn't be wise to shred it. In these cases, speak to our team about other destruction services available to you.

    Is Data Erasure Better Than a Shredding Service?

    Is data erasure better than shredding?

    If you choose data erasure over a shredding service, it will allow you to use the hard drive again. Erasure services are one of our most popular services for this reason. Blocks of data are overwritten so that they won't be recovered, but your confidential information can't be accessed on the device. Unlike shredding, it still allows the hard drive to be updated with new software or hard drive if required.

    What Else Can You Shred?

    We can shred lots of different assets as long as they fit into our shredding machines. As well as hard drives, commonly shred IT assets includes DVDs, CDs, magnetic media devices, security fobs, USB sticks, floppy discs and more. If you're unsure about whether an item can be shred, contact us about all shredding services.

    Who Do You Work With?

    We have provided security shredding services for many different clients and companies over the years, from top businesses and public sector organisations to domestic customers. Let us know how we can help you with your shredding needs.

    Do You Offer Free Shredding Collections?

    Yes. All our shredding and recycling collections are free - it's all included as part of the service fee.
