Paper Shredding Services Mobile, AL

Mobile, Alabama, is the county seat for Mobile County, Alabama, and is the fourth most populous city in Alabama behind Hunstville, Birmingham, and the state capitol, Mongomery.

Mobile, Alabama, is located on the Mobile River at the head of the Mobile Bay and serves as the only salt-water port in the state of Alabama. Historically, Mobile Bay has been the main source of economic prosperity for the city and played a vital role in Mobile’s early days as French traders and Native Americans relied on the port for trade and commerce.

Originally, Mobile was founded by French colonists to serve as the first capital of Louisiana in 1702. Mobile, Alabama, would change hands several times over the next 100 years, acting as a colony for France, Great Britain, and Spain. Mobile was eventually annexed from Spain by President James Madison of West Florida and became a part of the United States in 1813.

Today, Mobile is considered the Gulf Coast’s cultural center. Mobile is home to a professional ballet troupe, a professional opera group, a symphony orchestra, and several art museums. Additionally, Mobile has one of the largest concentrations of historical architecture in the Southeast. Mobile is also very well known for its celebration of Carnival or Mardi Gras, which is actually the oldest organized celebration in the United States. Take that, New Orleans!

As a longstanding member of the Mobile community, the Gilmore family has been protecting local businesses and families for over forty years. From paper shredding to records storage to moving services, the Gilmore family has Mobile covered from top to bottom.
