Terms & Conditions

We charge by hours unless mentioned otherwise. (Tape with less than one hour video/audio will be considered as ONE hour, read the "Calculation Method" section for more info)

We highly recommend our "POST, PAY LATER & GET MORE DISCOUNTS" service: To make your order pleasant and error free with even more discounts we highly recommend this method.

Our online Post & Packaging cost is an estimate: As there are variety of tape types with different weights, therefore our online Post & Packaging cost is an estimate; if the post & packaging of your order becomes more than what you have paid (after the service is done) then you will be invoiced later accordingly.

If you place your order incorrectly: We may process and finish your order and then you will be invoiced accordingly.

Calculation method

  • Orders with any minutes less than the service minimum order will be considered as the "minimum order".
  • Orders with more minutes than the service minimum order will be counted every 10 minutes.
  • If your total order is, for instance, 22½ hours then we will consider it as up to 23 hours.
  • Tapes with less than one hour video/audio will be considered as ONE hour for setup charge.
  • Blank tapes will be charged up to 35% of the service cost. (minimum: £2.99)
  • Blank sections in between audio/video will be charged as they take the same time and effort for transfer.


Transfer method

  • We don't transfer tapes partially, our systems transfer from start to the end, unless any problem occurs.
  • We use special equipment to automatically correct the poor signals where possible thus it will lead to a same or better video quality production.
  • Your privacy is our top priority, we do not listen/watch your media unless it’s blank or has some problems. (call us for more info)
  • Up to 5% of tapes/films might snap or require a repair during the transfer, however, there would be no worries as the repair will be done on the spot and the transfer will proceed. (you will be charged for the repair, please read the Tape/Film Repair/Restoration section

By default, we transfer up to 2 hours onto one DVD, however, we try to keep them organised as possible. e.g.:

  1. 1 1/2 hours tape and 1/2 hour tape will go onto one DVD
  2. 1 1/2 hours onto a DVD and 1/2+ hour/s onto another DVD
  3. Any other requests may have additional costs. please contact us!


Unwanted audio/video scenes
We do not listen/watch your media as your privacy is our top priority. Our systems are designed to transfer everything and nothing would be left out and cannot be manipulated. Your tapes will be rewind automatically and transferred from start to end except the blank parts in the beginning and end.

Film Status
Your Cine, Super 8, Polaroid Polavision, APS and 35mm or any other films must be developed/processed before placing your order as we DO NOT develop/process films, we only transfer them.

Tape/Film Repair/Restoration
Repairing a tape is a delicate procedure so we must take it seriously. As all audio and video tapes are already worn, there could be another type of repair/restoration needed as they might break again during the playback/transfer. Any type of repair price on this website only represents ONE repair only and is subject to be placed ONLY after contacting us. We only repair tapes to transfer, no repair will be done on its own in any circumstances.
E.g.: if a tape is snapped in one place and snaps again during the transfer there would be an additional cost of up to 40% of the actual repair cost for each additional repair. If a tape needs additional attention (cleaning, lubrication, baking, mending, etc.) then there would be additional cost involved. For any reason if your repair cost becomes more than £30 each then we will attempt to get in touch with you to confirm the cost to proceed unless your tape was jammed/sticky in some section/s and you failed to inform us in advance as this will damage our system and it might cost up to £100. IF YOUR TAPE HAD/HAVE ANY ISSUES PLEASE INFORM US IN ADVANCE TO PREVENT ANY DAMAGES TO OUR SYSTEM AND ADDITIONAL COST TO YOU.
If you decide not to proceed with the repair for any reason then there would be a cost of diagnostic, test, part-repair, etc. that has been already done on it.
