On-site Hard Drive Destruction in Charlotte

Data Killers renders nationwide data destruction services via our strategically placed destruction trucks and rapid deployment system.  We recently completed on-site hard drive destruction in Charlotte for one of our long-term repeat customers that specializes in software manufacturing and cloud computing services.

In this two day project, Data Killers technicians degaussed and shredded 7,000 hard drives on-site at the customer’s facility in Charlotte.  Our trucks are fully equipped with state-of-the-art, patent protected hard drive shredders, NSA approved degaussers and high-power generators to power our equipment.  This on-site degaussing and shredding of hard drives means that the media was fully destroyed per NSA specifications before leaving the customer’s facility.  As a compliance requirement for this project our customer not only witnessed the destruction on-site, but also elected our DVD option for their retention.  Prior to the destruction, Data Killer’s technicians scanned and captured each hard drive serial number which provides our customer with complete audit trail.

In addition to data destruction services, this on-site hard drive destruction in Charlotte also included the Turtle Wings electronics recycling arm of our company for the customer’s excess electronics and IT equipment.  The items picked up for recycling included a combination of PC’s, laptops and server equipment.  Our customer in Charlotte elected to scan and capture the serial number, make, model and manufacturer bar codes of their equipment which provides total asset management.   As an R2 certified recycler, Turtle Wings has an internationally approved environmental, health and safety management system verified by a third party auditor.

Turtle Wings/Data Killers electronics recycling and variety of data destruction services are recognized by businesses and government agencies throughout the country.  This on-site hard drive destruction in Charlotte was a complete success.  Our repeat customer in Charlotte was again impressed with the hard work and overall professionalism displayed by our staff.  We go above and beyond to accommodate special requests because we always strive to make the shredding process easy and timely for our customers, which is why we have such a high customer retention rate.
