Loaner Car and Identity Theft… how they could they be related?

Unfortunately in the past year, I have spent too much time in a car provided by the dealership (loaner car) where I purchased my new car. The one thing I consistently notice is each time I get in it and lean over to put the rental agreement in the glove box I find the previous drivers did the same thing because their rental agreements are still there!

Rental agreements have your name, address, driver’s license number, date of birth, car insurance company & policy number on them? These are all things legitimately required by the dealership to legally allow you to drive their vehicle. Maybe you are thinking the dealership should clean those out and make sure the information is properly destroyed. Yes, that would be a good practice for dealerships but the bottom line is no one is as concerned about the safety of your identity as you are and this is a reminder to remain vigilant in protecting it.

If you are one of the last 4 people who drove the loaner I’m driving now, rejoice, I have pulled the rental agreements and will shred them on a shredder that we sell here at Brewer Company. Maybe I should take a shredder with me when I return this loaner and show them just how quickly and easily the information can be destroyed!

Would a breach in security at your company tarnish your reputation?

Company policies protect customer and company information on file but what is being done with the information no longer needed? Proper and immediate destruction is optimal although many companies rely on outside vendors to destroy such information. Be aware that once the information leaves your company the “chain of ownership” is broken. If that information is stolen, lost or not properly destroyed your company is still liable. Having a high quality shredder in house provides immediate destruction of information and keeps your good reputation polished.
