UK Drug Testing Covid 19 policy last updated 18/05/22

We are all continuing to work very hard, in our offices and warehouses, to ensure that we’re able to get your drug testing kits, and drug and alcohol testing products to you quickly and safely.

Our prevention policy for Covid 19

The health and safety of our staff, customers and delivery partners is always of the utmost importance to us. Social distancing, regular covid testing, and increased cleaning and hygiene measures, in line with UK government guidelines for business, are in place in our UK offices and warehouses, to protect our team, delivery partners and customers.

The day to day operations of UK Drug Testing are continuing safely and efficiently. All our team at UK Drug Testing are now triple vaccinated. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our customer support team, by e-mail or telephone during our office hours. Our contact information is at the bottom of this page. We will continue to monitor the scientific and UK government advice on Covid-19 and will publish regular Covid updates on our website. 

Dispatch times

Currently dispatch times from us are unaffected. Most drug test kit orders received before 3pm Monday to Friday are still being dispatched from us on the same day either by Royal Mail or courier. (excludes bank holidays)

Delivery times 

Many of the delivery companies including Royal Mail and our courier delivery services may still be adversely affected by staffing levels, due to staff shortages in logistics.

Due to this your drug testing supplies orders may sometimes take a little longer than usual to reach you, so please allow extra time for deliveries. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause to you, and thank you for your continued patience and support during these exceptional times.

Our customer support team are all in the office as usual. Please contact us if you require any advice or assistance.

Next business day before 12 mid-day courier delivery is now also available as an express delivery option for orders placed Monday to Friday before 3pm and that are over £150. There is an a additional delivery charge of £24.99 for this option and you must select it at checkout.

Safe Delivery 

To help ensure the safety of our customers and delivery partners, packages may sometimes be left at your doorstep where appropriate. Please allow the delivery person or postman to move back before you collect your package.

If you would like to tell us a safe location to leave your package, please add delivery instructions in the notes when placing your order, or if ordering by telephone please advise the person processing your order so that they can add it to order delivery information.
