A few months after moving to Oklahoma, I found a few treasures I didn’t even realize I had. Namely the little Kodachrome Movie Film reel dated 1963 and about 25 slides tucked inside a small slide box. Of course, I took out each of the slides and squinted into a lamplight to see the small images. The tiny slide box was labeled “Six Flags” with most of the slides dated 1974. The small movie reel box was dated 1963 in my dad’s handwriting and labeled “Airport film & Jeanette & Judy Twist.” I was so excited to find these old treasures. I remember years and years ago, my parent’s showing slide shows and playing reel tapes for extended family and guests. It was a BIG deal getting all the massive equipment set up. I remember my dad had a large metal polled pull-down tripod white screen he set up in our family room giving us a ‘true movie experience’ in compared to our 1960’s TV which was a piece of furniture in the room. These two tiny boxes held lots of memories for me. I was so excited to see the contents after so many years. I knew I wanted to send them off for media transfer with Forever.com. I went straight to the computer and ordered the small media transfer box that very minute. The other item I found was my wedding VHS tape I knew I had but hadn’t watched since we married 27 years ago. I couldn’t wait for my media box to come in the mail so I could finally view these old treasures on my computer.
Within a few days the box arrived with specific labels, bags and instructions on how to add my media to the transfer box. Easy Peasy! I tagged the 2 tiny items with the labels provided by the company and slipped them into the plastic baggie they provided. I used the provided label to add to my VHS tape and placed it in its separate baggie. I used all the packing material they provided and double checked the return label already addressed with its bar code. Forever provides three-way shipping in the price of the media box so all I had to do was drop the box off at my local USPS. Forever has made this process very streamlined and easy for the customer.
A few days later I received an email from the media service team at Forever. They let me know the package was received and being processed. The next email I received from them was that they had completed the media transfer and my original items were being sent back to me. They provided the USPS tracking code, too. What wonderful customer service! If the media conversion staff have any questions about the customer’s products they will email the customer prior to dealing with the product. Same goes, too, in the case that too many items were placed in the box provided. The media conversion team will contact the customer BEFORE handling the products asking if they should proceed especially if there is an added charge. This is great because you will never be surprised at a charge you didn’t expect. This is outstanding customer relations and service by the media conversion team.
Finally, my box has been returned. I signed onto my Forever private account to view the slides they had already uploaded directly to my site. Did you hear that? Yes, they upload photos directly to your private account!!!!! That is just SO COOL. Seeing those photos come to life on today’s technology is fantastic. The movie reel and VHS tape were transferred onto a flash drive stick. I could view the movies for the first time in 25-40 years. Forever is a progressive company and within another year or so they will have the capability to upload all media, even movies, directly to your private Forever account. I can hardly wait! As a matter of fact, the company guarantees that all media in your private account will be migrated to the newest technology for your lifetime, plus 100 years. I know there are NO OTHER media conversion companies can claim this in our world today.
