100% Secure Hard Drive Shredding


We have a dedicated website for your region, would you like to go there?

Here at Techbuyer, your data security is our number one priority. It is also our company mission to support a sustainable and circular economy, ensuring IT equipment is used for as long as possible and minimising e-waste. That said, we also recognise that there are some circumstances in which you would choose to shred your hard drive, such as Company Policy, Insurance or Legal Requirements, or when a device is nearing end-of-life.

Discuss your Requirements

For hard drive shredding or sanitisation, call us on 01423 789120 or fill out the form below. Include the details of the hard drives you would like to destroy and our ITAD experts will be in touch shortly to discuss your options.

What Is Hard Drive Shredding?

When a hard drive is nearing end-of-life a decision needs to be made as to how to dispose of the data. Often this is either by means of sanitisation, shredding or both. As a company, it is your responsibility to dispose of sensitive information which may be stored on the drives, and destroying the device completely is a secure way of doing so.

The shredder is a heavy-duty piece of machinery that takes the hard drive and cuts it up into tiny pieces.

For extra peace of mind, we can also sanitise the hard drives prior to shredding. Contact us today on 01423 789120 or by using the form above, and our friendly experts can advise on the best solution for your requirements.

Data Security

On-site and Off-site Shredding Available

There are two options when it comes to the shredding of your hard drives. The first option involves our mobile shredding truck coming to your premises and the hard drives are shredded within the truck on-site. Alternatively, we can shred the hard drives at our secure ITAD facility.

You Can Trust in Techbuyer

This ensures a secure chain of custody from the point of collecting your hard drives right through to destruction. All storage, erasure and destruction takes place in our fully secure, IT Asset Disposition Centre.

We are also ISO 27001 for Data Security and Information, ISO14001 Environmental Management, and ISO9001 for Quality Management accredited too, so you can rest assured you’re in safe and secure hands and limiting environmental impact.
