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.
Delgado Hauling & Cleaning Services' uniformed staff helps homeowners free up space by lifting and hauling away burdensome objects on the company's 3-ton truck. Furniture loitering on precious real estate, appliances that no longer function, and electronics stuck playing Danke Schoen on a loop are just a few of examples of the items the female- and minority-owned business helps clients part with, along with old carpet, trash, and yard waste. Through their commitment to limiting the impact on local landfills and lending a helping hand to the less fortunate, Delgado's crews take the time and care to recycle everything they can. They also photograph and store salvageable items for later donation to homeless shelters, orphanages, and other nonprofits as part of their Project Esperanza program.

In their pursuit of keeping homes clean and safe, they also offer dryer-vent-, gutter-, and attic-cleaning services.

There's a reason Laundry Locker was named Best Dry Cleaner by the SF Weekly Readers' Poll every year from 2010 to 2013. Public drop-off locations and secure lockers in more than 900 area apartment and office buildings allow customers to safely stow their clothing and place orders via their Android or iPhone app. Drivers then retrieve the bundles and deliver them to a 10,000-square-foot facility where eco-friendly, high-efficiency technologies infuse dry-cleaning and washing services. Then, as quick as the next day, the attendants return the garments to the drop-off location and notify the customer. And these cleaners don't limit themselves to linens alone: the staff can restore shoes' shine by applying two coats of lotion or dipping them in molten silver.
