Hard Drive Destruction Services

ShredQuick offers secure hard drive destruction services for both businesses and residents of Florida. 

Our process is straightforward and simple for our customers, yet highly effective. In fact, our hard drive destruction process is the same used by the NSA and the US Department of Defense.


Why do we structure our hard drive shredding service with these strict requirements? 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.

That’s why ShredQuick offers the most secure destruction method available. We refer to our process as the Ultimate Hard Drive Destruction Process.

Why Choose ShredQuick’s Hard Drive Destruction Services?

We’ve ensured that our hard drive destruction process is secure, certified, and convenient. Here are four reasons why you should choose ShredQuick to destroy old hard drives:

We offer two convenient destruction options: on-site hard drive destruction and shipping service.

Onsite Hard Drive Destruction

If you prefer our on-site service, one of our uniformed drivers will arrive at your location wearing their ID badge, so you know they’re one of our certified ShredQuick team members. We’ll then perform the degaussing (erasing) and shredding. You’re welcome to watch this process for peace of mind.

Hard Drive Shipping Service

We call our shipping service the ‘U-Ship We Shred’ program. As the name implies, you can ship us your hard drives and we’ll degauss and shred them at our secure facility. 

In this option, we provide a secure container for you to ship your hard drives to us. We will then forward tracking information to you so you can check the status of your materials during transit. We recommend that you take photos of the contents before shipping. We will also take photos of the contents of your container when it arrives to verify the contents.

Our data wiping program starts with a degaussing machine that employs four large magnets to remove all electronic encoding off your hard-drives. 

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 two-pronged process ensures secure hard drive disposal.

Our process meets stringent NSA and Department of Defense security standards.

When the NSA or the Department of Defense needs to destroy their old computer hard drives and other media, they don’t take chances. They insist that the information security company 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 Department of Defense. That’s why we first degauss (erase) the hard drives and then shred them. 

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

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.
