About us

We are a London based Data & Document Shredding Company called Total Shred. We provide our customers with mobile shredding solutions by way of our fleet of shredding trucks in and around London.

Having been in the industry for 8 years, I think it’s safe to say that in this space, we’ve heard and seen it all.  We pride ourselves on both our service and our competitive prices. As a privately run company, we’ve stuck to our core principles in the data and paper shredding business; that’s been to help our customers create space, time and peace of mind.

Our data and paper shredding services protect people in many instances from becoming victims of things like Fraud and Identity Theft.

For many SMEs and Blue Chip companies, their biggest fear is having all of their customers’ confidential data leaked. As a result, we’ve ensured that our fleet of trucks use modern, state of the art shredding technology, to cross shred the papers into tiny, little pieces.

Today’s Data Protection Laws have very heavy penalties written in to them for companies that are non compliant. By entrusting your paper shredding services to a reputable company like Total Shred, you can take comfort in the fact that we’ll handle all your document shredding services for you.

How We Work With You

Your paper shredding would take place in one of our trucks on site, which allows you to watch our Operators conduct all of your document shredding. Each of our Operators are uniformed, professional and most importantly vetted. By using our document shredding services, you can take comfort in the fact that your confidential records will be shredded before they even leave your premises. This allows you to be 100% compliant with Data Protection Laws and keep in line with your industry standards.

We work closely with the residential market and aid people with the disposal of private paperwork during a house move, whilst also working closely with Local Authorities, National Health Trusts, small to large businesses and everyone in between. If you happen to be in the schooling, automotive, IT, finance, legal, medical or pharmaceutical sectors and need a more tailored approach to your shredding needs, then please ask us about our existing packages.

Tree Planting & Voluntary Carbon Credits!

We have invested in an exclusive partnership for the Greater London area with Forest Carbon – enabling us to plant enough trees in the UK to make our own operations carbon neutral. This scheme enables us to capture 1 tonne of CO2 on your behalf for every 1 tonne of confidential paper shredded for you.

The trees are part of new forests that are certified to the government’s Woodland Carbon Code. You will be issued with individual carbon credits, listed on Markit – the world’s leading environmental credit registry, which you can then use as part of your own carbon neutrality programme.
