For businesses with full storage rooms or residences with stacks of old papers, Allstate Information Management’s one-time shredding service is a cost-effective way to safely discard private or confidential documents. There’s no need to commit to a recurring service, and your appointment will allow you to securely discard a large amount of documents in a single visit.

What is One-Time Shredding?

Also referred to as purge shredding, one-time shredding is a one-time appointment during which a large quantity of papers can be shred at the same time. Service can be arranged for any time convenient to you within our hours of operation. Clear away your stored-up clutter in a single afternoon, and enjoy the peace of mind that comes from the knowledge that your information was destroyed according to professional industry standards.

Perfect for Cleanouts or Purges

Allstate’s purge shredding services are ideal for those in need of a one-time cleanout as required. Whether you are cleaning out the attic, moving offices, or emptying the old filing cabinet, purge shredding services can provide the one-off shredding assistance needed for your project.

Our purge service is available on or off-site and comes with the same security guarantees and benefits as our scheduled services do. No job is too big or too small!

How Does One-Time Shredding Work?

One of Allstate’s state-of-the-art mobile shredding trucks will be dispatched to your location. Our uniformed technician will collect the items you’ve designated for shredding and directly load them into the truck’s internal shredding mechanism. As our machines are capable of shredding thousands of pounds of paper every hour, the process will be both quick and thorough. 

At the conclusion of your appointment, you will be issued a Certificate of Destruction. This document provides a record of the items you had shred, and affirms that the process was performed by a certified shredding company. The particles, still within the truck, will then be taken directly to a local recycling facility, where they will be cleaned of any remaining traces of ink or markings and turned into recycled paper products.

We are proud members of The National Association for Information Destruction (NAID) and AAA Certified for Mobile Destruction.
