Shirley won our 'Name our Teddy' competition on LinkedIn, and she proudly named him 'Shreddy Teddy'! Upon popping in for some shredding at our shred as you wait facility in Chichester, (and a cuddle with Shreddy Teddy) she mentioned her stepdad was looking to move into a care home and she needed some assistance to clear the contents of his flat.


The flat was located on a 1st floor with no lift, which proved challenging when moving the bulkier domestic furniture items. The moving date was fluid and so we had to await confirmation of the official moving date and respond swiftly.


Identity Destruction Ltd was pleased to be able to swiftly send a 2-man team and flat was cleared of all household items within just 5 hours.

Here's Shirley at our Shred-as-you-wait branch with 'Shreddy Teddy'!

We collect all manner of bedroom furniture including bed frames, wardrobes and mattresses

We fully clear out kitchen cupboards and collect and recycle everything including fridge freezers and microwaves

We collect any and all lounge items including sofas, dining tables and chairs

We are able to re-use and repurpose intact furniture with local charities to help families in need and reduce waste


All the electrical white goods from the property along with the wooden furniture and the metal items were fully recycled and we achieved a 90% recycling rate on this house clearance.


I've used Identity Destruction for my shredding but hadn't realised they could also help with house clearance. Getting my stepdad into a care home had already been a bit stressful, so it was great that I could leave the flat clearance in the team's capable hands.

Being on the first floor, access wasn't easy, especially for some of the bigger pieces of furniture, but they did an amazing job and left everything very clean and tidy so we could get in and decorate before putting the flat on the market.

One of the reasons I use ID is that I know how hot they are on the recycling angle, so it was great to know that as much as possible would be recycled (and I wouldn't come across it dumped at the side of the road somewhere!) Well done Team ID!

Shred-As-You-Wait Service

Thank you again to Johny and the team for an outstanding service. We had a number of old PC's, hard drives and miscellaneous data discs and back up tapes (yes, tapes!) that needed destroying securely, with certification. A super-quick, friendly service - these guys know what they're doing. Cannot recommend them highly enough!

Hard Drive Shredding

Thank you to Identity Destruction for shredding 2 laptops, an Ipad and 6 mobile phones for me. Everyone was so welcoming and friendly. A great way of making sure any confidential files were destroyed safely. I was invited to watch it happen in front of me which was interesting. It was more involved than I thought as all batteries had to be removed first to prevent a fire risk, safety first. I received a certificate via email promptly after the shredding. I have recommended your services to others.

I have used Identity Destruction for the last few years and through three moves of premises in Chichester! They are efficient, and I am satisfied that the highly confidential medical records I give them are securely destroyed.

Office Paperwork

Second time I've used ID. Previously I went to their old Shopwhyke site. They are now located in Priors Leaze Lane. As before, I just turned up and made use of the Shred as you Wait service. The staff are very friendly and my files were destroyed while I looked on. A receipt and destruction certificate were emailed to me later in the day. The whole process is extremely quick and efficient. I can thoroughly recommend this company.

This is the perfect way to safely destroy any paperwork that you need to dispose of . I have just taken over a few sacks of my mother&pos;s estate . Too much to shred at home . It&pos;s also a great price and saves a lot of time

Family Shredding

As a business we have been using Identity Destruction for 3 years and the service is excellent. We have a monthly collection of confidential paperwork. The day prior to each collection we are e-mailed a pick up time slot, the following day we receive a certificate of destruction. The team at Identity Destruction could not be more friendly and helpful.
