How to Properly Dispose of Confidential Documents Before a Corporate Relocation

Are you planning a corporate relocation? Give careful thought to your confidential company information. Companies spend time and money to safeguard their sensitive data during daily operations which shouldn’t change during a move. Here’s how to properly dispose of confidential documents.

A Good Old Shredder

A shredder is a tried-and-true way to dispose of documents you don’t want to get into the wrong hands. Planning for small batches with individual office shredders or large quantities with a professional document shredding company is essential. Communicate with your employees to ensure they comply and shred the right documents before they pack them up for the move.

Disposing of Electronic Data

Before you start loading your electronics onto a truck, be sure you backup or dispose of any confidential data. Work with your IT staff to ensure everyone is on board with what they should keep and what they should remove. And create a plan for disposal, not simply deletion.

Secure What You Want to Keep

Your company certainly has massive amounts of documents and data that you don’t want to destroy. Securing a location for the hard copies or backup for the electronic information before your move day is critical. Storage in a secure warehouse or secure servers is the best way to protect your information. To ensure the security of your confidential documents, the safety of your electronic data and equipment, and smooth corporate relocation, you need an experienced moving company.
