As of 2015, the cost of a single session of mobile document shredding in most locations is between $100 and $150. The final cost varies based on the amount of paper shredded and whether the material shredded includes plastic binders or sleeves.
Mobile document shredding services calculate costs based either on the amount of paper shredded or by setting a flat rate for each visit to a location. Companies or individuals that schedule regular shredding appointments may pay reduced rates when dealing with some shredding services. Some mobile services also add a fuel surcharge to the total bill when they travel beyond a certain distance.
