Security

The Shredding Company only use our own vehicles to service our clients throughout the UK. Currently, we have 25 vehicles in operation with only new vehicles being purchased. They are sign written and serviced and maintained per the manufacturer's specifications. They are also registered to carry waste.

All of our vehicles have the following security measures fitted as standard:

  • Central locking, alarm and immobiliser
  • Trackers
  • RoadHawk front facing dash cameras
  • Fire extinguishers

We monitor all of our vehicles via Abax software, which allows us to see live GPS web tracks of the vehicles. This means we can carry out effective route planning and use of our vehicles and is a further commitment to our environmental creditability. In addition to this, all of our drivers have a hands-free mobile phone kit which allows them to notify us of any delays or concerns. We then proactively contact our customers should we expect a delay. All drivers are The Hill Company employees and wear corporate uniforms and display ID badges. All drivers are CRB/DBS checked upon employment.

All of The Shredding Companies facilities are modern buildings constructed to the highest specification.
