Cine Film Transfers

We make sure that any cine film sent to you is via Special Delivery. This is a Royal Mail service and it ensures:

  • Delivery before 1pm the next working day
  • A signature at the time of delivery
  • Insurance of up to £500.00

Before we send any transfer back to you we will call you and let you know first, to make sure there is someone in to sign for the delivery.

Track & Trace

If you have supplied us with an email address or a mobile phone number, we can email or text you to let you know the tracking reference of the parcel and the date and time it was sent to you. You can enter the reference on the Royal Mail's Track & Trace page.

Sending Your Film To Aarchive

If you are planning to send the cine film to us please make sure it is via Special Delivery. Your local post office will be able to do this for you and it is the most secure way to send your films to us. Recorded Delivery goes with the regular post and if anything does go missing you may get compensated up to £34.00—how valuable are your family’s memories? Please, do not take the risk—send them Special Delivery.

You will need to wrap your films and secure them well. A good quality Jiffy Bag, or a box with some packaging, if you have a lot of reels. Also, please mark the package as Fragile.

The cost of sending your films to us will vary, one or two small reels should only cost £5.05. For larger amounts of film the maximum charge for Special Delivery is £22.55. If you want to use your own courier service please make sure it is as secure as possible and needs a signature at Aarchive Films; there will always be someone there to sign for it.

You will find our address on the contact page.
