Why should I get my old tapes converted?


The average lifespan of a tape is only 15 to 20 years and are at risk of damage. Getting your tapes converted to digital media will ensure your precious memories are saved.




Do you convert other tape types?


No, but if there is a high enough demand for other tapes such as Super 8 and Cassette’s this may be a possibility in the future. Let me know if you would like this.




What if I’m not happy with my end product?


The quality of the conversion will be at or near the quality of the original tape. If for whatever reason we cannot get audio/video from the tape provided we will advise you. A full refund will then be provided, less the cost of postage.




What if my package gets lost in the post or courier?


We recommend that you track and trace your tapes when sending them to us. Once your tapes have been converted we will track and trace your tapes back to you. All copies of your conversions will be kept safe on our system for up to 60 Days.
