Timeless Moments Current Prices
The preferred payment method is BACS via online banking, this is free and instant and extremely secure.
We also accept all major credit cards and PayPal. Note if you wish to pay by one of these methods a PayPal invoice will be emailed to you. You do not need a PayPal account and you can choose your credit or debit card. Note: PayPal will add 4% to the price of your order as their handling charge.
Cash in the studio: We only accept cash for orders over £200 in the studio.
Cheques and Postal Orders are not accepted at all.
At this time we cannot take payment over the phone or in the Studio via credit card. This is because the amount of people who actually visit the Studio to pay is too small to offset the huge charges made by the credit card companies for other equipment and their commission on every purchase, a commission we are not allowed to pass on to the customers. To make this pay we would have to increase our prices to everyone which we don't think is fair, especially when there are free alternatives such as BACS.

Quick Turnaround Service
Sometimes you may have a really urgent requirement, wedding anniversary, birthday, sadly a funeral etc. We will do everything possible to get your films to you as fast as we can. However, this means stopping our normal schedule, working on your job, then running overtime, sometimes until late in the night to catch up again. So this quick delivery is charged more as you might expect.
Same day (requires you to bring the films to the studio in the morning and collect them in the evening) - Prices as listed plus 100%, assumes it is possible to carry out the transfer in one day, larger amounts of films may take more time but will be immediately worked on.
Within 1 week - Prices as listed plus 50%
Within 2 weeks - Prices as listed plus 25%
Note: Minimum charge and Minimum Footage length
We have a minimum charge for all work of £40, this is around 175 feet of cine film and 3.5 hours of videotape.
For DVDs, we have a minimum charge of £60.
We also have a minimum footage transfer length of 50 feet, so please do not attempt to cut down the footage on the 3-inch reels to save money as this results often in damaged film that can't be transferred.
