We have you covered in this blog post, looking at the ins and outs of shredding trucks and how they are integral to a mobile shredding service.

What Are Shredding Trucks?

Shredding trucks are what we use to destroy your documents quickly and securely. They make it easy to destroy your confidential documents without having to leave your property. Although they might look similar to your usual truck, they boast on-board industrial shredding machines that can shred your paper in seconds right before your eyes.

How Do Shredding Trucks Work?

Connect the Shred Bins

Using the secure bins provided, you are responsible for putting your documents to be shredded inside. The truck will be backed up to where the bins are located and then a hydraulic lift is used to raise the shred bins up and into the truck.

Depositing the Bins and Shredding

With a lot of shredding trucks, the shredding process is completely touch-free to ensure complete security. Once the bins are lifted up with the truck’s hydraulic arm, the documents to be shredded will be dumped inside and then sent through the on-board shredder. A mobile shredding service truck will make a large job take less than five minutes!

What are the benefits of using on-site Shredding Trucks?


The convenience of not having to leave your property in order to shred your documents isn’t to be underestimated! If you don’t have the time to manually go off-site to get shredding, a mobile shredding service is perfect. This is especially beneficial for businesses who want to keep their confidential information on-site.

Time Efficient

Shredding trucks are also much faster than traditional methods of document destruction, so you can get the job done quickly and efficiently. You don’t have to worry about travel time or making sure someone is available for that trip. Not to mention how quickly everything gets shredded! Your documents can be shredded in seconds and Chesapeake trucks can shred up to 4,500 lbs of paper each hour!


Finally, using a mobile shredding service is much more secure than taking your documents to an off-site location. This is because the entire process takes place on your property, so there’s no risk of your documents getting lost or stolen in transit. Nobody is handling your important confidential business information but yourself, and the process is automated to guarantee the security of your documents.
