Delivery

UK Drug Testing delivery information last updated 28/01/22

Most orders received before 3pm Monday to Friday (excludes bank holidays) will be dispatched from us the same day.  

If you require your drug tests quickly select 1st class delivery, UK courier delivery or one of our express UK delivery options as these are currently the fastest delivery options.

There are delays in all the delivery services currently due to driver shortages at Royal Mail and the courier delivery companies, the 2nd class Royal Mail delivery service has been particularly badly affected.

The delivery times below are a guide only. Currently all the UK delivery services may be slower than usual, due to increased pressures on postal and courier systems, due to self isolating delivery drivers and sorting office workers during the current wave of the pandemic.
