There can surely be few things as frustrating as looking around for a service you want, finding it and then discovering that the cost is kept secret. That’s not how I do things.

Here’s my pricing, which I hope you will find to be both competitive and affordable.

TAKE THE £3 TEST! (EXCLUDING POSTAGE AND PACKAGING)

If you’re not sure how your video, tape, negatives, slides or photographs are going to turn out, then why not try me out with this low cost sample service?

Send me three slides, three photographs or a strip of negatives with up to three images on. I will scan them and send you the digital images via email. These will be reduced size files, but should give you a clear indication of the quality. You will need to send an SAE for the return of them; regrettably, these sample images cannot be put on a disc.

Do you have no idea what’s on your VHS videos or audio cassettes? For £3 I will test them for you, and either email you or call with a summary of what seems to be on. Screenshots of the VHS are also possible. After that you can either place your order to convert, or pay the postage and packaging costs to have them returned.

 

PAYMENT

At this stage I can accept payments by bank deposit, cheque, postal order or PayPal.  You can use PayPal with a card even if you don’t have a PayPal account.

LIVE NEAR ME? FREE COLLECTION AND DELIVERY!

If you are close to where I am then I’m happy to come and collect and return your videos, slides and negatives. As a sole trader I don’t publish my address. I am based in North Yorkshire / Tees Valley – give me a call or drop me a message, we can arrange something.

POSTAGE AND PACKAGING

I don’t include this as part of the services pricing as it will vary from order to order. How many tapes, photos, negatives and slides you need to have done means different pricing will be applicable. It might well also be the case that you want to arrange your own courier or delivery service to get them to and from me.

All pricing will be quoted on orders, but as a guide the following would be example charges. I use Royal Mail services.

Example postage costs for the following –

1 VHS in padded envelope with the DVD

1 audio tape with the CD or CDs made of it in padded envelope

30 photographs in sleeve in padded envelope with disc of images

10 strips of negatives in plastic, with disc of images

20 slides in box, with disc of images

£4.00 1st class

£3.00 2nd class

£5.00 1st class signed for

£4.00 2nd class signed for (when available)

£9.00 guaranteed by 1pm next day delivery

I am happy to work with you in using any alternate service you prefer. After all, these are your memories I am bringing back – I want you to be happy with the way you send and receive.
