I've worked with Didlake twice and would happily work with them again. The entire Didlake team makes the process as smooth and easy as possible. I've shut down 2 offices over the last few years and Didlake was fantastic in picking up my files, scanning and disposing of them, and getting me a flashdrive of my documents. The files were labelled and orderly. I really couldn't ask for more and will use them again should ...

I am a strong believer in supporting local businesses, and you couldn't find a better one than this to support. I ...

I have had a couple of occasions to find myself looking at digitized files and have found it straightforward to access the data. While I don't foresee any large scale digitization needs ...
