We understand that digitizing all of your memories can seem like an expensive task that you can put off year after year, but it doesn’t have to be. We’re here to help. The cost to have VHS tapes professionally converted to DVDs or digital files has become more efficient to save you money. The cost to convert a VHS to DVD is in the range of $9 to $15 per vhs tape


There are companies that will charge more for a single VHS tape but our pricing is competitive regardless of quantity or type of tape. We want you to save money!

High Cost Digitizing VHS Tapes Yourself

If you have a large number of videos to transfer and are thinking of saving money, you may consider doing the job yourself. A VHS-DVD combination player/recorder is the most effective way to do the conversion, but it is outdated and difficult to find. 


You can look for these machines online on Amazon or eBay, but they can be costly, usually over $100, and shipping can take a long time. Right now you can find a VHS/DVD player on Amazon for $250 at a minimum while some machines are selling for over $600. They are not easy to find, especially since the last VCR was produced in 2016. Any equipment you find is going to be refurbished and can potentially damage your cherished memories.


The items you need to digitize your tapes on your own include: 

  • VCR/DVD combo machine
  • Blank DVDs
  • RCA to HDMI Converter
  • VCR Head Cleaner
  • Time and Labor 

When it’s all said and done you can end up spending well over $1,000 to secure all of your equipment before starting to digitize your old VHS tapes. Why not use professionals with years of experience to take that headache off your hands?

Considerations When Choosing a VHS Conversion Service

Your home movies shouldn’t be handled by any video transfer service provider. Your family memories should be in the hands of a business you trust. When considering a service to use keep the following factors in mind.

  • Business Located in the US: All of your media is digitized right here in the US at our warehouse in North Carolina. 
  • Happy Customers: Legacybox has served over 1 million customers and is the world's largest home video and photo transfer service.  
  • Real-Time Updates: Once your Legacybox arrives at our warehouse you will receive real time updates via text on where your memories are in our digitization process!
  • Experience: We have been in the business since 2007 and digitize over 700,000 items per week. You can say we’re experienced in what we love to do! 

  • Final Thoughts

    Getting your family's VHS tapes converted to DVDs and digital files should be easy and affordable. It's important to take action now to preserve your videotapes because VHS tapes degrade and you can lose picture quality during transfer.

    Instead of tackling this yourself, let us take care of everything for you. Take advantage of our $9 tape offer today, and we'll help you preserve those precious memories before they fade away.
