Our services

We used to have a whole load of waffle here like so many others. We even confused ourselves about what we actually did

The simple truth is this

We specialise in bulk scanning for solicitors, IFA’s and accountants. You end up with data you can search upon and back up. It’s not complicated, but it’s very effective.

A typical sized job for us is about 500 standard archive boxes worth of paper files. We send a clean branded van with a couple of our chaps to collect about 150 boxes at a time. So typically, we’d do 3 or 4 collections over a number of weeks or months. Or if you’d just like all of your boxes taken away that’s absolutely fine – we can then scan as quickly as we can or we can do a certain amount per month for you. Incidentally, the guys who pack and collect boxes, they also work in our scanning team when they’re not collecting – so you can chat through the specifics of what needs doing and they’ll get the plot.

We also run another website called Tradescanners (sorry, the website is terrible, it was written in about 1845 and it shows – it’s on our to do list to sort, and simplify)


We set up Tradescanners about 15 years ago and it became the number one website in the UK specialising in just scanners. We’re told by our customers they chose us because we knew what we were talking about and because we cared, which is what we’re all about. There are 4 or 5 staff in our team who advise and support the scanners we sell. Our knowledge in the scanning world is very extensive, pretty sad isn’t it, but it can come in useful.

Finally, we sell and support Virtual Cabinet document management software. If you’d like to know more about VC as we call it, please just get in touch and we’ll arrange a demo for you.

Unfortunately we don’t build space rockets, but we love what we do

Some of our lovely customer comments

E File have been fantastic from beginning to end – always very professional and client focused. Thanks for helping us lose the “weight” of paper!

David Bolton

I wish had found Efile years ago. What a difference it made getting rid of all the paper files and how simple they made. Thoroughly recommend them.

Marie Duckett

As part of modernising our business the scanning of all our hard copy files and folders has made a huge difference to our productivity. Everything is now filed digitally, meaning information is much more easily accessible, and our office is much closer to being paperless. The service we received from the team at E File was fantastic, and I would recommend them to anyone considering looking to digitise their business in this way.

Allister Kitchen

Thanks to the Superb Service from E File we no longer pay for storage each month and the best part is we can find anything from our PCs rather than files going missing every 5 minutes, would highly recommend to anyone.

Helen Beckwith

E File were very efficient and reliable with our scanning project, a company I will happily recommend to others

David Halsall

We freed up an entire office and another room we were using purely for file storage, the service from E File was impeccable and very accommodating, and the best bit is we can find anything from our pcs rather than spending time manually searching for files that can then get misplaced
