Contact us today to tell us about the devices you want to destroy and book an appointment to visit our premises in Cheadle Hulme to make it happen.

How to avoid identity theft

Devices like laptops, home desktop computers, tablets, mobile phones, data discs and USB drives will always retain data. Even if a device has been reformatted, erased, wiped or degaussed, an identity thief may still be able to access your information.

The only way to guarantee complete security and assurance is to shred the hard drives of old computer equipment, or destroy and recycle the device itself.

Why protect your data?

As detailed on our confidential paper shredding page, identity theft can have catastrophic results on your credit rating and personal finances. Our hard drive destruction service will stop your private data falling into the wrong hands.
