Should hard drive shredding companies offer free pickup?

In our fast paced world, new technologies are making lives more convenient every day. As the technologies increase, old electronics are becoming obsolete faster than ever before. As a result, companies are left with old hard drives and other electronic devices. These devices all have sensitive data stored in them since data is not erased simply by deleting files. This increase in technology has spurred the need for hard drive shredding companies. Today, there are more data destruction companies around then ever before. To keep customer loyalty, companies are offering various incentives, one of which is offering free pick up to customers.

One of the best ways to win customer loyalty is to offer the customer convenience. Companies with large numbers of old electronic devices are likely not going to want to pack up all the devices on their own and then drive to a company’s location, which may be far and out of the way. Instead, companies are going to want to choose a drive shredding company that will meet them where they’re at since this is a much more convenient option. Instead of wasting time and resources and sending out old electronic devices, companies will appreciate the ease of having items picked up and destroyed at an offsite location. When hard drive shredding companies can think through and plan for the entire data destruction process, it makes the whole process that much easier for customers.

Some companies offer the option of both on site or off site data shredding. With on site shredding, companies will come to the company and shred hard drives at the company’s location using portable shredding equipment. This is convenient for companies as they know that the process will be completed in a timely manner. Other companies offer secure off site destruction where a company will pick up old hard drives and, in a secure vehicle, transport devices to the offsite location. This is convenient as the customer will not have to worry about transporting old devices themselves. Either way, hard drive shredding companies should offer convenient options to improve customer loyalty.
