Option 1

Local Drop Off

Call to schedule an appointment.

Drop off drive(s) with completed authorization form at

50 W Third Ave Suite 210, Collegeville, PA 19426.

Inside of Collegeville Station on the first floor across from Bonjung 

If you would like to drop off your drive(s) in person you can schedule an appointment to drop off and pick up your storage device at our Collegeville laboratory.  The safest and most secure option when dealing with important data and damaged media is always to hand deliver.  You can meet with the data recovery engineer working on your case and you can verify the recovered data in person at our office upon completion.  We kindly ask that all local clients’ call to schedule an appointment so that the engineer can be available to meet with you. Please complete the authorization form and bring it with you. If you do not have access to a printer then we can supply the form in our office.

Option 2

Using the Secure Dropbox

Located in front of the laboratory inside of Collegeville Station

Pack your drive(s) securely in a box (shoebox size is fine), include the completed authorization form and a check for the diagnostic fee.

The building is open from 8am-12am daily and the drop box is located directly in front of the lab on the first floor across from Bonjung. To use the drop box, open the lid and place your box inside and then close slowly. Your package will gently fall into a padded and locked bin. Call us or use the contact form below to let us know that you have delivered the drive(s) off using the drop box so that we can start your case without delay.
