Convenient Delivery Options To Save Time
Automatic Sampling Service
When you’re busy all day it’s hard to coordinate delivery of your samples. You have to collect the sample, deliver it to the lab, and everything in between (drive times, traffic, etc.).
That’s why we offer automatic sampling. Simply call us, tell us where to go, and we’ll send a professional to:
- Collect the sample
- Bring it back to the lab
- Deliver your test results via phone, FAX or email
You don’t have to do a single thing.
If you’re further than 30 km, call us. We’ll travel almost anywhere within reason, with additional charges for travel expenses.
Call us for bulk pricing or quicker turnaround times on our automatic sampling service.
If you’ve already collected the sample, we’ll be happy to pick it up and save you the trip. This is similar to our automatic sampling service, except you take the sample yourself; here’s a few guidelines to help you in your collection.
Need a pick-up outside our service area?
With our drop-off boxes, you now have many convenient places to choose from for dropping-off samples in the Toronto area. We’re able to provide you with a variety of locations that keep our overhead low and we pass those savings on to you.
Setting up drop-off boxes is easy too – you can request a new drop-off box location. If we find multiple customers located in that area, you might wake up to find a new box near you!
The quickest sample turnaround time for drop-off boxes is 24 hours.
Call us to request a rush order if you need your test results sooner. If you call a day in advance, we may be able to coordinate a quicker turnaround time.
