Recycling your old office computer and other electronics without completely removing the data or shredding the hard drive could result in your confidential information ending up in the wrong hands.
A single data breach of a hard drive can cost your organization thousands and in some cases, hundreds of thousands of dollars in penalties, fines and lost business due to bad PR. That’s why ShredQuick offers the most secure destruction process available that we call, the Ultimate Hard Drive Destruction Process.

Will The Hard Drive Destruction Company You Choose Meet The Highest Security Standards?
Some information security companies won’t even shred your hard drives. These companies will claim that they shred them, but they are only bending the drives or drilling holes in them. What they won’t tell you is that data thieves can still mine old hard drives you thought were destroyed and collect bits of confidential information. And if they do, it can expose your organization to lost business, government fines and bad PR.
How Highly-Secure Government Agencies Destroy Their Computer Hard Drives
When the NSA or the Defense Department needs to destroy their old computer hard drives and other media, they don’t take chances that their confidential and sometimes classified information will still be retrievable. They insist that the information security companies that destroy their hard drives not only shred the hard drives, but that they must also erase all the data by degaussing them, before the old hard drives are shredded.
The only way to ensure that your hard drive data is 100% destroyed is to choose the same process required by the NSA and the DoD. When you first degauss (erase) the hard drives and then shred the drives it’s the Ultimate Hard Drive Destruction Process.
We First Erase Your Data and Then Shred Your Hard Drives
ShredQuick doesn’t just shred your computer hard drives and other media. We first use a degaussing machine that employs four large magnets to remove all electronic encoding off your hard-drives. Then for added protection we also shred your hard drives and provide a certificate of destruction to verify that your confidential hard-drive information is gone forever.
This destruction process is so safe and secure it’s been chosen by the NSA, Defense Department, and other government agencies to protect their most sensitive information. That’s why we call it The Ultimate Hard Drive Destruction Process and we make it available to everyone at a price that other information security companies charge just for destroying the hard drives.
Here’s How Our Ultimate Hard Drive Destruction Process Works:
Step 1: Scan Serial Numbers
Our service tech scans the serial numbers for every hard-drive.
Step 2: Erase Your Data
We remove all electronic encoding (data) from your hard drives with our degaussing machine.
Step 3: Shred Hard Drives
All hard drives are then placed into the shredder and shredded into small pieces, so that your information is completely irretrievable.
Step 4: Record Shredding Process
We record the shredding of your hard drives and burn a copy to DVD or flash drive.
Step 5: Provide Documentation
Once your hard drive shredding is complete we provide a Certificate of Destruction, Serial Number Report and a DVD or flash drive of your shred, so that you have comprehensive documentation for your chain of custody.
Step 6: Recycle Materials
After our shredding trucks return to our facility, all shredded hard drives are prepared for secure recycling.
