Our Company

Professional meth testing services and expert advice you can trust

Drug Smart is an independent methamphetamine testing company operating in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. We service all areas of Hawke’s Bay and travel to other regions upon request. It is our mission to provide an honest, reliable and quality service to our clients at an affordable price. We have extensive experience working with nationwide government agencies through to individual home owners.

Meth testing and the regulations surrounding it have been somewhat of a hot topic in recent years, with plenty of airtime through the New Zealand media. When you deal with us you can be sure you will receive honest and unbiased advice tailored to your individual situation.

We believe the New Zealand public deserves the best high quality testing, which is why we’re committed to operating in accordance with NZS8510:2017 Testing and decontamination of methamphetamine-contaminated properties.

Working partnerships

As experts in the methamphetamine testing industry we know that property management is becoming more and more stringent, and so we work closely with and aid organisations of all sizes in their day to day property management operations.

Navigating the compliance requirements of property management can be extremely challenging. The property management firms we partner with enjoy continued support, advice and access to our partner pricing plans, all of which benefit the individual landlord clients.

We make the meth testing process easy to understand and provide all necessary reporting and documentation to satisfy landlords, tenants and insurance purposes. Knowledge is key and we are committed to working with property management teams as a meth testing partner they can rely on.

“Always prompt, highly professional and easy to deal with. They provide detailed reports, great advice and education to us. They have never let us down.
