Frequently Asked Questions about this service:
What exactly is a HARD DRIVE?
The hard drive is a small device (see photo below) measuring no more than 6″ x 4″ in a desktop PC & even smaller in a laptop.
It lives inside of your computer & has a VERY IMPORTANT job to do.
Think of the hard drive as the “file cabinet” for your computer.
It’s responsible for storing all of the programs like Windows or Mac OS, Microsoft Office, Chrome, etc..
But, MORE IMPORTANTLY, it stores all of your personal data like Photos, Videos, Music, Documents, etc…
What happens to my data when I sell, donate or throw away my old computer?
Unfortunately, all of the data that is on the hard drive now will still be there sitting on your hard drive after you get rid of it.
For ANYONE to access!
And guess what – even if you delete the data first – it can still be easily recovered.
This includes ALL of your private photos, videos, web browser history, sensitive documents, tax returns, bank statements, business information, medical data, etc…EVERYTHING!
What can I do to prevent my data from EVER being retrieved, accessed or viewed?
To ensure that the data cannot be recovered from an old hard drive, drive destruction is normally suggested.
However, this service can be expensive & is not available in all areas.
WireHead Data Destruction answers this call with an affordable & convenient drive destruction service.
We will come to your business or residence & destroy your hard drive right in front of you. Then give you the remains to safely discard.
The process only takes a minute & 100% drive destruction is guaranteed.
What method do you use to destroy hard drives?
We use a proprietary hard drive crusher that plunges a large steel pin into the drive causing the drive to fold in half & bend the platters.
It’s important to understand the the platters are where the data gets stored on the hard drive.
Once these platters bend (even slightly) they are rendered unusable & unreadable.
So manually destroying the drive ensures that the drive can never be used again.
See examples below.
What is the cost for this service?
The cost is only $25.00 for a single hard drive.
Each additional drive is $10.00. Your tenth drive is FREE.
For example, if you had 3 hard drives to decommission the cost would be $45.00
($25.00 for the first drive & $10.00 for each additional drive).
Discounts given on quantities over 10.
What are the payment options?
This service is CASH ONLY (no checks or credit cards).
