Commonly Questions Asked Document Shredding Services

What’s the best method to destroy my confidential documents?

Document shredding. This quick and easy procedure cuts your documents into thousands of tiny pieces of paper. Any private or sensitive material is no longer legible and you can relax knowing your documents have been thoroughly destroyed.

Why shouldn’t I just throw away my private documents?

Your personal data isn’t safe in regular disposal methods. Anyone can access your materials at public dump sites and waste facilities. There’s also the high probability of papers flying away during rubbish collection. You or your company’s information getting into the wrong hands can have disastrous results.

Where can I go to get my paper shredded?
Vault Document Destruction offers you a range of different shredding services. Whether you want on-site shredding or off-site shredding, we can organise a solution for your needs. Vault services Melbourne and its surrounding suburbs.
How is my digital data safely destroyed?

Vault’s commercial shredders cut your hard drives and digital storage devices into many small fragments, making it impossible to retrieve any information from them. A much more comprehensive service than just erasing the data, there’s no way to access anything on the hard drive after we destroy it. We’ll also provide you with Certificates of Destruction including the serial numbers we recorded before destruction.

What is Secure Product Destruction?

Secure product destruction refers to anything that’s been permanently destroyed. This covers any materials that are physically destroyed and rendered unrecoverable, no longer accessible for their information or intended use.
