On-site Hard Drive Shredding in Oakland

Data Killers fully equipped and automated trucks are constantly on the go providing our certified data destruction services for customers throughout California and nationwide. One current project was on-site hard drive shredding in Oakland for a new customer that specializes in global digital marketing and digital media solutions. During the initiation and planning phase of the project, this new customer in Oakland revealed that they selected Data Killers because of our known history of providing compliant on-site data destruction and our ability to provide certified destruction of both classified and non-classified media.


With the city of Oakland situated as a major West Coast port and the fifth busiest in the United States by cargo volume, there is an extensive marine cargo and distribution transport presence in the Oakland area. Also, there are countless small businesses and major corporations that support the port’s cargo traffic. In addition to cargo volume, Oakland’s economy includes many start-up high tech and green energy companies. With such a thriving and multifaceted economy, Data Killers offers on-site hard drive shredding in Oakland for a variety of customers ranging from new technology start-ups to national brands to shipping distribution companies.


In this one day project, Data Killers technicians shredded approximately 500 non-classified hard drives on-site at our customer’s facility in Oakland with a state-of-the-art, patent protected hard drive and tape shredder. In addition to the non-classified hard drives, the customer in Oakland also had nearly one hundred classified hard drives for destruction. The process to destroy classified hard drives includes degaussing the hard drive with an NSA approved degausser prior to shredding. As a company with full on-site data destruction capabilities, Data Killers was able to securely destroy the customer’s classified and non-classified hard drives in compliance with all local, state and federal regulations. Data Killers on-site hard drive shredding in Oakland and nationwide is ideal for customers who want their media destroyed completely and the destruction to be certified.
