Hard Drive Shredding & Destruction

hard drive shredding machine

When you retire your organization's computers or other data storage devices, it’s not enough simply to “delete” the old files stored on them. Deleted digital files contained on your old hard drives can still be accessed by technically-savvy people who seek to access sensitive information about you, your company and your customers. Simply deleting or wiping your files leaves you at risk.

The best solution for reliable data destruction security in the Western Michigan area—including Grand Rapids, Lansing, Benton Harbor and Muskegon—is to call Kent Record Management where we’ll securely destroy your hard drives and other physical electronic media completely. We're NAID AAA Certified for plant-based data destruction.

The amount of information stored on a digital drive can represent an enormous quantity of client, corporate or personal data. With identity theft so commonplace, it is no longer adequate to simply erase this information from hard drives before they’re discarded. In order to prevent the theft of data from hard drives or other data storage devices, it’s necessary to destroy them before recycling.

How Hard Drive Shredding Works

One of our trained team members will collect your hard drives or other data storage devices. We’ll securely house and transport them back to our facility for destruction. We employ a strict chain of custody in order to protect your information.

Once the hard drive shredding process is completed, we present you with a Certificate of Destruction documenting your compliance. You have confidence that you’ve destroyed your digital information in a safe and trusted manner, along with proof for your records.

If you are interested in our hard drive destruction services, please contact us by phone or complete the form on this page. We look forward to hearing from you.
