I don't usually bother filling in this kind of thing but I do have to say that dvdedit were really, really good. The communications were so helpful and the service good value and faultless.

Reliable, efficient & high-quality service.
Video to DVD Transfer No Frills
The whole order was excellently treated
Video to DVD Transfer No Frills
A splendid service that was completed in only five days. The attention to my somewhat ancient video tape and the manner in which it was transferred onto a disc, packaged, labelled and despatched to me with following-up Emails from the management was a service sadly lacking in many departments these days. I very gladly endorse this firm and recommend it to anyone who wants a good job done at a fair price.

Excellent service and very quick response. Will certainly use them again.
Video to DVD Transfer No Frills  

Excellent communication - emails arrived at every step of the process, keeping me informed. Some of my tapes were blank, for which I was given the option of a partial refund or credit note to the full value. This is exactly what online shopping should be like

Excellent communication from start to finish and great management of the order as a whole.

I was delighted with the quality of service from Michael at DVDedit right from my first phone enquiry. My VHS tapes had irreplaceable moments from my kids' childhood and DVDedit handled everything perfectly from post to transfer and return. Unreservedly recommended!

(We have transferred many video’s where permission has been granted for a personal transfer to be carried out. If you have obtained permission please either e-mail or send a copy to us with your tapes.)

2) If you can provide evidence that the video was recorded some time ago and that DVDs have not been made available for that tape or tapes and the transfer is for your personal use only.

Not sure of video tape recording duration

 

 

We understand that if you no longer have a suitable working video player or camcorder, it is sometimes difficult for you to know the duration of the recording 
We only charge for the DVDs that we make up for you, so if you order a 'double disc set' in case the recording is over 2 hours and we find the recording is less and fits onto a single DVD we will reduce payment or give you a credit.
If paying by Debit or Credit card online via Google checkout we will reduce the payment or refund the over payment
If paying by cheque we are not able to collect part of the payment so we will issue you with a credit to the value of the over payment to be used with any future orders
If you prefer you can send 2 separate cheques i.e. one cheque for the cost of a single DVD and a cheque for the additional cost of a second DVD (double disc set) if the additional payment is not needed it will be returned with the DVD. Alternatively you can leave the payment section of the cheque blank and we will fill it in for you for the correct amount..

Sending Your Video and Camcorder Tapes to us.

 

 

We strongly  recommend sending your video  and camcorder tapes by royal mail special delivery or another trusted courier 
Smaller camcorder tapes are best sent in their original plastic case in a good quality bubble wrap style envelope please label both the tapes and cases.  
Full size VHS video tapes are heavy and can easily be damaged, we advise sending them in cardboard sleeves the type normally associated with blank VHS tapes, using a good quality bubble wrap style envelope or wrapped cardboard box. If possible try to bind the video tapes together (Clinging film type food wrap works well) or pack tightly to avoid movement and possible damage by colliding with each other if the package is shaken. Please ensure the actual video tapes are labelled  not just the sleeves.
If possible send an e-mail advising us of the delivery and tracking details if available, we will send a return e-mail advising of their arrival with us.>Contact us

Can I use my DVD for editing?

There is not a simple answer to this question. With most domestic editing software you can't edit from a DVD without first converting the video content of the DVD to a suitable editable digital file usually Mpeg2 this is commonly known as ripping the DVD. Some more recent software may have DVD file importer / converter included that will allow you to convert the files from our DVDs.

With our Rescue and transfer service we can also o produce an  Mpeg2 format digital file that is suitable for use with most  "Windows" based PC editing software and we can supply a copy of this file for you on a DVD data disc for a small additional cost normally £5.The Mpeg2 file can be copied to your Hard Disc Drive on your computer and imported into suitable editing software  without having to be previously converted. (please note an Mpeg2 file will not play on most DVD recorders)

Can I make copies of my DVD?

Yes

The DVD is made from video material you supply so we do not put any restrictions on copying the DVD discs.
However our current additional copy price of £5 or down to £3.34 if you order 3 additional copies (Professionally produced and presented the same as the main copy) may be worth considering.)
