Delivery & Returns

UK Drug Testing Delivery Information-last reviewed and updated 27/11/20

If you require your drug testing kits quickly please select 1st class Royal Mail for small orders and UK Priority Courier Delivery for larger orders (free when you spend over £150 on drug tests) as these are the fastest UK delivery methods currently.

Although UK delivery times are significantly improved Covid-19 measures may still be slowing some Royal Mail delivery times in some areas, so please allow extra time for deliveries by Royal Mail before contacting our customer support team. 

Fast Delivery

  • We are all working very hard to maintain our speedy delivery service, while following government guidance on social distancing and hygiene, to keep everyone safe.
  • Most drug and alcohol testing kits are in stock for immediate dispatch, so orders placed before 3pm Monday to Friday are still being dispatched from our warehouse the same day
  • While most deliveries are arriving quickly, Covid-19 measures are slowing some of the Royal Mail and courier service delivery times in some areas, so please allow extra time for your drug test deliveries. 
  • We thank you for your patience and continued support.
