Thanks to Fire House Hauling, you don't have to set your garage ablaze to get fire department trainees to carry away your junk. That's because the company's staff of junk removers consists of aspiring firefighters, who develop strength and agility for the job by collecting unwanted furniture, scrap, and waste from houses and commercial sites and hauling it away. They need all the endurance they can get to handle the task, too, especially when they're clearing out the type of house they tackled on A&E's Hoarders.
The process is simple. Fire House Hauling's crews swing by in their trucks and scoop up any nonhazardous materials, from unwanted furniture and construction waste to appliances and human answering machines. The considerate staff flexes more than just its muscles, however; they also sweep up any leftover debris, and afterward they sort through the truckloads of junk so that they can recycle items or donate them to Goodwill.
American Shredding - Oakland may specialize in destruction, but it's in the business of protection. The licensed, bonded, and insured collectors understand that until your confidential documents are no more than thin, illegible strips of rubbish—they’re valuable and must be treated with sensitivity.
One way they get the job done is by shredding the documents immediately in mobile trucks. The collectors can also pick up the materials and shred them at their facility, a system that comes with a set of safeguards: documents are transported in locked, secured, and GPS-tracked trucks and destroyed within 24 hours. Furthermore, customers can choose a shred size they feel comfortable with, and all employees undergo background screening and drug tests. After the materials have been shredded, American Shredding - Oakland’s staffers haul the residue to local paper mills for recycling. They also offer hard-drive shredding for those who don’t trust their computers to self-implode when compromised.
