A Day in the Life of a Mobile Shredding Driver

Datashredders > Commercial Shredding > A Day in the Life of a Mobile Shredding Driver

Datashredders’ mobile shredding services are available to most of the UK – so our drivers travel far and wide to all corners of the country. Here, we look at two routes our drivers take over the course of the week – journeys which amount to a whopping total of over 573 miles!

Our drivers’ first port of call tends to be the furthest location from Datashredders HQ on their list, before working their way back down to Cambridgeshire, making stops at client premises along the way to take care of all their data shredding needs.


MIKEY – 274.785 miles

Here’s Mikey’s typical Monday route. Mikey sets off at an eye-wateringly early 4 o’clock on Monday morning, travelling over 100 miles from Datashredders’ shredding base to Stafford in the West Midlands before visiting clients in the towns of Rugeley and Cannock, followed by a trip to our customers in Coventry. From there, Mikey travels southeast to Lutterworth, then Market Harborough, then Corby, before returning to Datashredders HQ in mid-afternoon.


MICHAEL LARHAM – 298.945 miles

Thought Mikey’s Monday was an undertaking? Michael Larham’s Thursday tops that! Setting off at 3.15am, Michael makes the two-hour, 126-mile trip from Wimblington to Wakefield, where he visits some of Datashredders’ northernmost customers. Mikey then makes Yorkshire shredding stops in Castleford and Barnsley before visiting a number of domestic and commercial customers in Sheffield. Michael then travels further south to the market town of Chesterfield, Derbyshire – but we must stress that he’s far too busy shredding confidential waste to do any shopping! Michael then drives a short distance to visit customers in Mansfield, before returning to base.

It’s not just Mikey and Michael that are clocking up countless early mornings and thousands of miles weekly – our dedicated team of mobile data shredding professionals, consisting of drivers, shredding and recycling operatives and wingmen travel all over the country to bring our 100% secure data shredding services to your doorstep.
