By agreeing to these Terms of Service, you represent that you are at least 18 years of age, if anyone under the age of 18 uses this site it is assumed that you have given us your consent to allow any of your minor dependents to use this site.

You may not use our services for any illegal or unauthorised purpose, nor may you, in the use of the Service, violate any laws in your jurisdiction (including but not limited to copyright laws). It is your responsibility to ensure you hold the copyright, or have permissions from the copyright holder of the material you send to us for transfer, we do not accept any responsibility for any copyright claims, and any claims will be transferred to you. You own the copyright if you have filmed the content, or if it has been transferred to you. If you are unsure, please get in touch so we can advise.

In regard to your supplied tapes, some tapes may be too degraded or damaged to play, usually a result of poor storage or mistreatment over their lifetime. We will do our best to transfer every tape you provide to us, but if a tape is too badly degraded and it won’t play, or breaks, we can’t be held responsible. However the cost of the transfer will be refunded to you. Furthermore, if a tape is blank, we will refund you the cost for that tape. Charge only applies to tapes that have had footage transferred from them, regardless of length.


The cost to transfer a tape to digital file is £20, however for VHS the cost is £20 for tapes up to 90 mins, see the VHS product page for pricing of longer tape lengths. Supply of the digital files can be delivered on USB Drive or DVD (CD for Audio) and charged separately. However for all products (except Floppy Disk), the USB Drive and Storage Tin is free when ordering 10 or more.


Whilst we offer an advanced digitising service, with advanced techniques to improve picture/sound quality, results are however limited to the quality of the original recording, such as, how it was recorded. If the footage has low-light (which produces lots of noise in the image), poor focus, shaky filming, sound issues etc. then this is how it will be digitised. The result will be the best possible digitising quality for a recording. No responsibility will be accepted for poor quality filming or audio capture.

Order Time

We aim to return your order within 5-working days, however, please allow up to 28 days for us to complete your order. Busy times and demand greatly affect our turnaround times. Remember, if your tape is 1 hour long, it will take 1 hour to capture it, plus post-processing time and conversion. Any long delays in processing orders will be displayed at the time of ordering. All orders are based on a ‘first come, first served basis’, however if you require an expedited service, please contact us to discuss.


We offer Square Payment Processing (debit or credit card) which is a secure form of online payment. If you are in our free collection and return area and would like to’ Pay on Collection’, please contact us before ordering.

Please note: We do not store, or see, full debit or credit card information, this is all encrypted by Square.


Please notify us immediately if there are any issues with the ‘Delivery Products’, such as DVD’s or USB’s. We will rectify any issues, or replace the products as quickly as possible or within 5 working days.

If there is any damage to a parcel or missing items, please notify us within 7 working days so we can take it up with the courier service. We do not accept any responsibility for the loss or damage to your media, and will only reimburse you for the cost of blank media. This is due to the unavailability of insurance to cover items of undefined value.

Cancellation & Refunds

Please notify us immediately if you wish to cancel your order. If we have already started capturing your media, we will only charge you for the work we have done and will refund the rest to you in full. Refunds will be processed within 5-working days and will be a refund/part refund to your original payment method. Once the refund has been processed, please allow 10-working days for it to appear in your account.
