Worried householders emailed the fast growing company, based in Northwich, Cheshire,to arrange for the high-speed scanning of precious photographic collections and storage on disc to prevent the permanent loss of treasured mementos in the floods.
“This is exactly the type of reaction we expect following a flooding incident or after a fire,” said Scanero MD David Houghton. “It is at times like these that people realise they need to protect their treasured memories from potential loss.
“For those old photos gathering dust in wardrobes and boxes around the house are irreplaceable memories. They may include images of lost loved ones or special family celebrations. And in reality, photographs are fragile things that will deteriorate with time anyway.
“Thankfully, a growing number of people are realising they need to protect those memories and the best and most cost effective way to do so is by having them scanned and stored on disc which is our speciality here at Scanero.”
Former IT professional David launched his company just over a year ago after identifying the need for a fast and affordable scanning service.
“We had friends who lost all their memories in a fire at their home,” explained David. “Everything went up in smoke, even their wedding pictures. Yes, they were covered by insurance but the best insurance policy in the world can’t replace photos that have been destroyed.
“That set me thinking about offering a scanning service to help people store their images. And when I checked out the availability of such a service I quickly realised there was a gap in the market.”
David invested in high-speed scanning equipment so Scanero could offer an effective scanning solution at affordable prices.
“Traditional scanning methods can be time-consuming and expensive. So we used invested in high speed equipment and found we were offering a level of service that was not available elsewhere. So now we get regular inquiries from throughout the UK.”
The company has grown steadily throughout the past year and David is looking forward to further growth as winter weather conditions – like the very recent floods – prompt individuals to protect their photographic collections.
