What our customers are saying
Mike was able to convert a few 8mm tapes for me that were over 30 years old and they came out perfect. Highly recommended and the turn around was only 1 day and he was able to put them on a USB flash drive. I was looking at online places that wanted me to mail in the tapes and wait time for 4-6 weeks. So glad I found Mike locally. Very reasonable pricing too.
Michael was a great help. OurMemories from 20 years ago were made easy to watch and share.
Great service. Mike responded to me in short order. His prices are very reasonable. He even was able to go the extra mile to get my project done within 24 hours so I could have it for Christmas.
Mike is wonderful to work with! I was so excited to convert 50 of my parent's old VHS tapes to digital files as a Christmas gift. Mike walked me through some options when I called and was very willing to help with a short deadline. Mike was able to deliver all of them in under a week's time to meet the Christmas deadline!! Such a fast turnaround. Additionally, not only are his prices reasonable, but he goes above and beyond to meet you at one of his locations closest to you, so you don't need to drive far. So excited to have these memories digitized and it's all thanks to Mike! I've watched all the videos with my parents and they've come out perfectly.
Extremely pleased with both the result and the customer service. First of all, Mike answered my questions about which output would be best. (For me, digital). Then he agreed to meet me half way so I wouldn't have to mail him the 23 tapes. Wow! He did the work in 2 days and while I haven't watched them all the quality looks great. It's worth noting the price was very reasonable, particularly given the high level of service. Would highly recommend Mike and Chicago Transfer Service!
Mike at Chicago Transfer Services is very easy to work with. I sent him my dusty old VHS tapes and Mike digitalized them and sent me my memories of my children on a convenient flash drive. I was afraid that the tapes had gotten old and brittle but no worries. He successfully transferred them to a flash drive. I now have videos of my children growing up.
Mike transferred my wedding video tapes from 1989 to a DVD and flash drive. Outstanding service and great finished product. Mike was a pleasure to deal with. Very accommodating and fast. He was very prompt and willing to answer question afterwards. For anyone in the Chicago area, he is able to meet at a variety of office locations in the city and suburbs. Much better option than sending out your sentimental video cassettes for transfer. Thanks again Mike!
I highly recommend using Chicago Transfer Services if you have any old VHS tapes that you want converted to dvd or flash drive. Decent prices and fast turn around time in the convenient location of Schaumburg with plenty of free parking. Mike was extremely helpful and got my memories to me fast! One video was of my baptismal as a child so it was so important for me. I feel so relieved and happy because I had the smaller VHS that went into the larger tape and one of them had a broken flap, so I was not even sure anybody could convert them. I am so thankful he was able to convert for me! Mike's services were truly a godsend! Now I can relive these old memories anytime on my laptop or DVD player.
Working with Mike was amazing!! We did an anniversary video for my parents that was a collection of video messages from their friends with ALOT of additional still photos. He made this so easy and the video turned out great! I can't wait to see my parents reactions.
Being able to have direct local contact with Mike for VHS tapes and movie film transfer to flash drives was the best decision for this project. Having conversations with the person managing the project proved beneficial to me for a bit of education, communication, clarification and decision making. Mike worked diligently and communicated throughout the two phases of this project. Mike guided me from start to completion. I am very satisfied with the VHS tapes and movie film transfers to flash drives. I can add additional files to these flash drives too, as Mike suggested purchasing flash drives with large gb capacity.
After a good house cleaning, we found 100's of old family tapes gathering dust and deteriorating in our basement. I decided to surprise everyone with a special Christmas gift this year. I preserved all my old film & VHS and had this company digitize our precious memories before they were lost forever. I shopped around for companies and very impressed with Chicago Transfer Services. The owner Mike was professional, easy to talk to, guaranteed us the best price. Turn-around time was fast! The price was very fair. I was thrilled with the outcome (digital files of all our videos on a flash drive and a memory book with DVD copies of all our tapes.) I recommend this family-owned business-Chicago Transfer Services-is fast courteous & offers fair price, great quality-excellent customer service. Thank you!!!! So thrilled to re- live our family memories and so very happy they did not fade away !! 6 STARS
I shopped around before entrusting my precious family movies with Chicago Transfer. They offered references which put me at ease and their price was lower than the other company I researched. Chicago Transfer did an outstanding job transferring my family movies. They were very professional and thorough when answering my questions! My family movies look great. Mike did a wonderful job restoring them. I would HIGHLY recommend Chicago Transfer they will do a fantastic job preserving your cherished memories.
I have done business with CTS for years in every facet of the business from video production of a wedding to filming and editing commercial spots, transferring and archiving film, video and magnetic tape, as well as cataloguing and digitizing slides and all types of media. This company works in all formats and if they don't have the format, they will go out and purchase the equipment to serve your needs, they are real pros!
I had rare and out of print cassettes transfered to CD and they came out phenomenal! I couldn't have asked for better service. Super friendly and turnover time was amazing. I will be a returning customer for sure! Highly recommend!
After my grandfather passed away we discovered a large box containing several old reels of 8mm film. We did not remember seeing these long lost films before, so we looked online for a service which offered film transferred to digital. The cost was really not a concern, we just wanted an experienced company with the best personal service. We found Chicago Transfer Services in Schaumburg, Illinois and could not have been happier with our choice. The best part was the backup file they offered on flash drive, all my family members were able to download the files onto their computers. Thank You Michael @ Chicago Transfer Services.
My name is Troy Clendenin owner of 'The Demo People' in Houston, Texas. I was in Chicago on September 8th-10th 2019working at the GSX convention. We didn't have any local contacts for videotaping or editing. I contact Michael Slowik with chicagotransferservices.com. Mike was extremely professional and understood our unstructured shooting request. Mike and his team shot our footage, provided direction and edited all of the videos. I can't recommend this company any HIGHER than 110% satisfied without sounding like a paid commercial. If you are looking for someone for Photos, Videos or Editing you can't go wrong with these guys. They are Honest, Hardworking and true Professionals ! This is an honest recommendation from a REAL paying customer.
Dr. PhillipsWe are grateful!
I am a member of the American Society of Anesthesiologists in Park Ridge IL. Our association decided to have our 16mm sound film reels transferred to DVD. These films date back to the 1950s and were in fragile condition and one of a kind. We considered many companies and after speaking to Michael over at chicagotransferservices.com in Schaumburg ILL, we knew we were in good hands. Our choice could not have been better. Myself and all of the members are grateful for the professional service.
My family and I couldn't recommend this family-owned service highly enough. We've had over 200 VHS tapes gathering dust and deteriorating. Our family decided to forgo individual Christmas gifts this year and all chip in to digitize our precious memories before they were lost forever. I shopped around for trusted companies and was very impressed with Chicago Transfer Services. From the jump, Mike was friendly and easy to talk to, guaranteed us the best price and completely delivered. The turn-around time was truly impressive for the number of tapes we threw their way. They kept us in the loop throughout the process and helped ease my mother's worries about handling over her memories. The overall price was very fair. We were thrilled with what we received in return(digital copies of all our videos on a flash drive and a memory book with DVD copies of all our tapes). I would recommend this company to anyone looking to preserve and digitize their family memories for their price, quality and excellent customer service. This Christmas will be one for the ages! Thanks, Chicago Transfer Services
I did a lot of videotaping over the years, so I finally decided it was time to look for a service that could transfer VHS to DVD. Filming with Betacam SP, 3/4" U- Matic and full size digital, I needed to find a place that could handle all different types of formats. After speaking to Michael the owner of Chicago Transfer Services, I felt comfortable he could handle the job, The DVD's came out perfect and as promised were delivered on time. I would highly recommend Chicago Transfer Services to all my friends.
