How Our Mobile Document Shredding Service Works

FileShred has a fleet of trucks that have been outfitted with the most advanced and powerful shredding equipment in the industry that allows us to bring professional document destruction to our clients at their Connecticut locations.  When our well-trained and uniformed staff arrive at your home or business location, all you have to do is show them what documents you want destroyed.  They will place your papers in our 96-gallon bins that hold about 300 pounds of paper.  The bin will be closed and locked to protect your files.  The bin is then taken directly to our truck.  The truck’s destruction system will raise the bin into the truck and empty your papers into the shredder and they will be destroyed.  The process will be repeated until all the documents you want destroyed have been shredded.  Our trucks also have a viewing station that will allow you to see the industrial shredder destroy your papers. 

What Does It Cost for On-site Shredding Services


We offer two base services in CT that can be customized to each client’s needs, one-time and ongoing document destruction.  For our one-time or purge service, we charge a price per bin shredded.  The cost per bin is based on the number of bins that will be necessary to destroy your confidential documents.  The more paper records you have to shred the lower the cost per bin.  Our bin is a 95-gallon container that holds 300 pounds of files.  Some shredding companies use a 65-gallon bin that only holds 200 pounds of paper so it is a good idea to ask any company you are considering what size bin they use.  For our ongoing or scheduled service, we also charge a rate per collection container.  We offer several types and sizes of collection containers that stay on-site in your office to disposit of all documents in.  The cost for each container is based on the type, the number of containers, and how often they are serviced.
