Shredding Credit Card Offers Could Save Your Identity
You get them in the mail, daily. Offers to open a new credit card with some sort of amazing deal attached. But what do you do with the gobs of credit card offers that you receive each and every time you open your mailbox?
With the abundance of credit card offers the average American receives regularly, it’s not secret that if they get into the wrong hands, your identity could be compromised. Identity thieves can easily use the information provided in the offer and open a credit card account under your name.
Proper shredding of these documents could make such mishap easily avoidable. In addition to credit card offers, any records that include social security numbers, sensitive account information, PIN numbers, passwords, and even signatures could put you at risk.
At Mobile Record Shredders we know the risks. Your confidentiality is the most important concern we have. We have a system in place to help you privately and securely dispose of these documents. Contact us today for more information about how we can help keep you safe and your documents secure.
Why Hire a Shredding Service?
For businesses, shredding documents has become part of the normal routine. Shredding allows you to keep important documents confidential and abide by strict US Government rules and procedures that mandate documents are properly destroyed and to eliminate the opportunity of identity theft.
As a business grows, it increases the number of confidential documents that need to be disposed of in order to keep your employee and customer information safe. Shredding in-house can take too much time and resources to properly destroy documents. By hiring a shredding service, you are creating a cost-effective solution to the burden of shredding.
Rather than going through the expensive and time-consuming process of owning and maintaining your shredding equipment, a shredding service uses it’s own equipment and eliminates the time and effort taken to shred materials under your supervision. Plus, shredding services are affordable. Whether it’s having us pick up your documents or bringing them to one of our shredding facilities, the cost and time associated with using our services far outweigh that of doing it in-house.
Medical Record Destruction
With the age of the internet, identity theft is a large problem. With online shopping, auto pay, and anywhere else you would be inputting your credit card information, it is easier than ever for identity thieves to get ahold of your payment information. It’s important to keep your confidential information private so it is out of reach of those praying thieves.
Your credit card isn’t the only thing that can be stole on the internet. Medical records with your health insurance information listed can be used by thieves to receive health information under your name. Congress passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, encouraging transactions made by insurance providers and health services companies to be performed electronically. If they are in hard copy form, they need to be destroyed properly.
Which is exactly why you should hire a shredding service to destroy your medical records - from a service provider standpoint or if you have personal copies of your own.
Keep your medical records out of harms way and shred! Contact us for more information on how we can help.
Secure shredding services to help you!
Organizations are often in need of shredding services to ensure documents are securely disposed of.
Companies that generally need security for their documents do not have the equipment necessary to ensure documents stay confidential, such as locked consoles to house documents before shredding.
Mobile Record Shredders can come to you -- or you can come to them! We have an option for companies to have on-site locked storage bins for security, so documents remain safe from prying eyes. Our mobile shredding trucks allow for on-site shredding, rather than your documents being transported elsewhere. Leaving only a small trace of your documents that cannot be reassembled. After each project is complete, we leave you with a NAID Certificate of Destruction, to prove your documents have been safely destroyed.

It’s more than just a piece of paper. Recycle!
Due to contrary belief, one piece of paper is not just a piece of paper. It’s not just a small article that will just go away, it’s not just light, thin and something you write on or make paper airplanes with. Its paper and its recyclable.
The average office worker throws away 10,0000 sheets of copy paper per year. When you skip the recycle bin, it’s a problem. Approximately 33% of the municipal solid waste stream (MSW) is made of the paper thrown away by those that fail to recycle. That 33% is the largest portion of the MSW.
Knowing that we recycle 100% of the paper that is shred, shredding should be just another step in your recycling routine. By shredding paper, you are not only recycling but you are also conserving resource and preventing greenhouse gas emissions, pollutants, saving energy and creating additional jobs. Additional recycling stimulates growth for greener technologies and reduces the need for landfills and trash incinerators.
We’ve all heard it a million times, but the words Reduce, Reuse and Recycle are more than just a phrase, they are currently a recycling movement. We have the recycling part down, so let us help you become part of the movement by going green and shredding.
