Testimonials

Your photos are your families’ memories and we know how precious they are to you and how it can be hard to trust someone you don’t know to look after them while they are scanned.

Below are just a few testimonials from customers all over the country. We hope these give you some peace of mind when sending us your photos to us. We look after your photos, slides and negatives like they are our own and keep you informed every step of the way.

“Like most people, I was apprehensive about sending irreplaceable photographs and slides in the post to get them scanned but with boxes and boxes of 35mm slides that hadn’t been seen by anyone in the family for over 20 years, I bit the bullet and sent a selection to Joe and his team. Communication from the beginning of the process was prompt, turnaround time was really fast and the slides were returned to me safe and sound.  We couldn’t be happier with the results and will definitely use Scan My Photos again.”

Donna McTavish, Auckland

“After my husband’s death I was frantic about securing his photographs in a more permanent format. Joe guided me through the whole process, assuring me that no photos ever got lost by mail. He let me know the moment he received my photographs, stayed in contact the whole time, scanned the 300+ photos and newspaper cuttings in a week and digitally repaired some of the old photographs. The peace of mind that a fire/flood can no longer erase my precious memories is priceless!”

Alet Du Preez, Auckland

“Awesome service, good communication, and an excellent job of my late fathers hand cut box brownie negatives, highly recommended”

Leo Frizzell, Blenheim

“Just to say thank you for scanning my slides, dating from 1976-8 on to a usb.   I am happy with the images you produced and the work and time frame.  Although I said it was not an urgent job it was completed fairly quickly. Definitely will be bringing more for the same service.”

Suzi Thirlwall, Tauranga

“I highly recommend the services of ScanMyPhotos.  Joe and Andrea are most accommodating to meeting your needs and my precious photos were returned safely to me.  I didn’t use the postal service, instead I picked them up as I live locally to them but as I had some personal issues delay that, they kept them safe and sound for me until I was able to.  However, next time I would happily use the mail system rather than pick up. The scanned photos on a memory stick came up great too, good quality and expertise and having met them at their place, I can assure everyone they’re a legitimate and professional business.”  

Vicki Lee, Tauranga

“I am very happy to give ScanMyPhotos a reference.  I found them friendly obliging and professional.  I sent my photos in a N Z Post box, and they were returned the same way, with headings to fit the boxes.  Their service was quick and to a high standard.”

Helen Glyde, Hamilton

“I was so very pleased with the way the slides turned up last time as it happens I am just preparing to sort some more old ones and I look forward to getting you to repeat the good performance that you did last time. Appreciated the first service last time and hopefully I may get these ones back before Christmas as I intend to drop them in any day soon. I can highly recommend any others that may have valuable all slides to have them converted into a digital record. Cheers,”

Andrew Sterritt Te Awamutu.

“Hi Joe and Andrea, Thank you so much for the incredible work you have done scanning some really challenging and large projects for us – and you did not even flinch! Both included very old photos that are very precious to our family – so we really appreciate you taking such good care of our originals, and getting them back to us so quickly! Not only did you scan them, but you were able to ‘miraculously’ transform some of those rather ‘patchy’ ones into clearer, brighter photos – perfect for the books I am creating and also for our genealogy website! Can’t wait to get some more done!”

Amanda and Paul Smidt, Christchurch

“This year my Mother passed away and us siblings were cleaning out her place and came across some old Negatives that were Black and White and we were not sure what they were as we had never seen them. Rather than risk us trying to do something with them I got Joe from Scan My Photos to put them on to a memory stick for each one of us. The service he provided was fantastic also to know he is in New Zealand and close by was wonderful.

Nothing was a problem and he delivered as per his instructions in a quick and easy manner. I was totally delighted in his work and would highly recommended his service. It is so nice to know that our precious few photos are saved now for us and the grandchildren to enjoy. Thank you Joe for a wonderful memory you have saved for us.”

Glenda Ryan, Tauranga

“I was very impressed with the quick and professional supplied from Scan My Photos. Their service was fast and professional to change my very old slides in to amazing pictures for my family to see. I would definitely recommend them as they even went the extra mile to collect and drop them back to my home.”

N Thomson, Whangamata

“From the time I made contact with Scan My Photos the experience was a very positive one and very straight forward. Reply was prompt and Instructions were very clear. I received all my photos back well within the time they stipulated and in perfect order, they had also gone to the trouble of putting them on in the order that I had posted them, and the old discoloured ones looked amazing. I would highly recommend this company and will certainly be using them again.”

Bronwyn Watkins, Tauranga

“Recently I saw a Grab One voucher from Scan My Photos to have my old slides repaired and put onto a USB stick. I was very excited to say the least considering my OE had been over 40 years earlier and I had only seen the slides once in that time having rented a slide projector. I promptly posted 150 slides to Scan My Photos in Tauranga and the service right from the get go was amazing. Joe emailed me immediately to advise my slides had arrived safely and he informed me of the approximate delivery date. They were completed before the delivery date and I received another email outlining all the options and costs of delivery plus given the option of any additional USB sticks. Everything arrived at my address right on time with the safe return of my slides and the USB sticks, plus discount vouchers should I want any further slides digitalized. I am over the moon now I have the opportunity to relive my amazing trip through Europe and North Africa and be able to look at them whenever I choose. I would highly recommend Joe and Andrea to anyone who are wanting excellent service on high quality scanned photos and slides.”

Denise Grace, Mairangi Bay

“From our first contact with Joe to delivery of the final product was so easy. Questions were answered promptly and they let us know where we were at in the process. Was surprised how fast the slides were returned with copies on USB, Dad thought it was great sitting back in his chair seeing the old photos on the TV. The next lot on their way soon. Cheers”

Karen, Auckland

“Thank you for your work on my photos. I am happy for you to use any of my comments as a testimonial of your service. I would just like to thank you both for such a fantastic job you have done. Some of the photos I sent through are quite old (photos of my grandparents & great grandparents, so probably from the early 1900’s). The scanning quality is excellent even for these older photos that have been creased & faded over the years. I am so happy to have copies that are computer screen size so they are even more vivid & I can see details that aren’t so obvious on the photo itself. The service was fast & all my photos have returned safe & sound. I am so pleased I have copies of these photos as an added insurance should anything happen to the originals. I highly recommend Joe & Andrea to anyone who needs a photo scanning service. They are very professional & I will continue to use their service. Many thanks to you both.”

Sonia Matthews, Kaikohe

“I first used ScanMyPhotos recently as I was wanting to collect some images for our Daughter’s 21st. They were helpful, professional and very quick with their turnaround time.

Having never sent off family photos before, I was naturally a bit nervous that they could go missing etc however we used courier post and all seemed secure. I would happily use MyScan again for further photos.”

Glenda Stone, Central Otago

“I would like to tell you all about the experience I have had with this Scan My Photos.My slides dated back 50 odd years and had no extra care or attention in that time. Kept in a box and casually handled by all my siblings thru-out the years as we occasionally viewed the odd ones thru a view finder. Abandoned in either hot or cold places for years on end and now magically put onto a usb stick .What a good laugh my family has had at their parent and relatives. Modern enough for our adult children and grandchildren to look at and the conversations that has created. AWESOME. Wonderful clarity to show the times back in the 50/60s.”

Fiona Keys, Bay of Plenty

“Just to let you know my package arrived safely back yesterday. You have done a lovely job with the photos. I am very pleased. Also great to be kept in the loop regarding my package arriving and having been dispatched back, that personal touch was much appreciated. Thank you so much.”

Janice Thompson, Auckland

“I would like to say thank you for the way you handled my order my order. As my slides were very old I had my doubts as to how they would turn out. But you did a very professional job. I was just dying to see how they turned out and was very pleasantly surprised when they came back in super fast time. They look great, for me, it is a trip down memory lane seeing my daughters as children again. Now I have them on a portable USB and I can take it with me anywhere. I will be going overseas to see them soon, so will be taking it with me. Thank you “Scanmyphotos” I will be using you again in the near future.”

Jan Mckenzie Auckland

“I was very satisfied with the service I received from ScanMyPhotos. I sent them a large number of ancient black and white family photos. The scanning was good quality and the photos were returned well protected. I would definitely recommend this service.”

Julie Weiesmuller, Tauranga
