Now more than ever businesses need flexible secure document disposal, which is why we offer a fully compliant one-off shredding service. Our GDPR-compliant team is on hand to visit your home or office on an ad hoc basis and destroy paper documents, products, hard drives and other media formats.
Documents can quickly build up in offices and homes, leaving businesses vulnerable to sensitive data being stolen. If your home or office is overflowing with storage boxes and files it may be time to invest in an ad hoc shredding service.
Documents can quickly build up on desks and in filing cabinets, especially for employees working remotely. This can not only impact the productivity of team members, but also place a business’ sensitive information at greater risk.
Office spaces can also overflow with documents over time, especially during an office move. Financial reports, payroll data, hard drives; all of these need to be disposed of securely. A one-off shredding service can guarantee that your business remains compliant with GDPR.
Not every business requires a regular shredding service. If you are an SME handling smaller quantities of paper documents or simply looking to shred old hard drives as part of an ad hoc clearout, we can visit your premises to destroy your files on site or collect them and dispose of them at our secure facilities. We also provide one-off domestic shredding services to cater to remote workers. Whatever your needs, we are flexible and can work to a schedule that suits you.
Our one-off shredding services are fully compliant with the GDPR standard, which requires you to obtain proof that all of your confidential documents have been destroyed. We issue every client with a Certificate of Destruction so that your business remains compliant, helping you to avoid hefty fines and other penalties.
In addition, our ad hoc shredding services conform to the strict standards of BS EN 15713 Secure Destruction of Confidential Material. This means that we dispose of confidential waste in a secure, controlled manner and that our process is regulated by continual external audits to minimise risk.

We’ve provided secure ad-hoc shredding to many of our clients over the years. Take a look at what they have to say about us and our service below:
“Efficient booking service. The on-site shredding lorry arrived on schedule. Staff were very polite and helpful. I requested a one off shredding service of confidential papers from my business, from when I retired. I felt a valued customer even though I had made it clear that it was an one off situation.”
"We used Shredall when we were in need of our annual clear-out of confidential documents at our offices. They sent us sacks to fill in advance and when ready we booked in our service. Their uniformed staff arrived promptly, they were polite and within no time were able to shred about 100 sacks of our confidential waste on-site. On completion we received a certificate confirming destruction. We would 100% recommend Shredall SDS Group and will be using them again in the future."

One-off shredding FAQs
Below, we’ve answered some of the most common questions that clients ask about our ad hoc shredding services. If you can’t find the answer you’re looking for here, don’t worry – just get in touch.
Are your ad-hoc shredding services on site or off site?
If I choose off-site, where will my confidential documents be taken?
Once we’ve collected the documents from your home or office, our security vetted and DBS-checked staff will take them to one of our secure facilities across the UK to be shredded and recycled. You can check up on their journey using our innovative tracking software.
Do you only offer ad hoc shredding services?
No, we also offer our full range of information management services on a scheduled basis. If you intend to use our services on more than one occasion, you will save money by switching over to a weekly or monthly schedule.
How much notice do you need before an ad hoc collection?
We would suggest giving us plenty of notice when organising an ad hoc collection. Under normal circumstances, we’ll arrange a service within one week. However, we always try to be as accommodating as possible and it could be within 24 hours.
What happens to all of the paper once you’ve shredded it?
