New Zealand’s Leading Property Testing Company
Methamphetamine testing matters. Whether you are a home buyer purchasing a property, a landlord renting an existing property, or are simply wanting peace of mind, engaging a professional specialist methamphetamine testing company really counts. As one of New Zealand’s leading methamphetamine testing companies, ATS has the experience and the know-how to ensure that your asset is protected. We take on the liability, so that you don’t have to.
Fully qualified and fully insured ATS has worked with hundreds of property owners to ensure that their properties are expertly tested for for methamphetamine at cost effective prices. The added bonus is that with ATS, you have the peace of mind in knowing that a company director will stand right along side you in support of the testing conducted in any setting required such as a Tenancy Tribunal hearing.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral made up of many small fibres. Unfortunately for all of us, it was commonly used in building products right up until the year 2000. As we now know, asbestos can be a killer and it is vital that you manage this risk appropriately. As a specialist property testing company, our primary focus is in the residential sector and working with landlords and property management companies.
If you are a landlord, you will be aware that on the 4th April 2018, new asbestos regulations came into effect. This means that if you own a rental property you now have a legal obligation to take all practicable steps to ensure that both your tenants and any contractors working on the property are protected from the risks associated with asbestos containing material. ATS has created a revolutionary and cost effective way for landlords to achieve this.
We have recently sold one of our rental properties in Rotorua. We were amazed when the purchaser insisted on having a meth testing clause in the contract. As we were under significant time pressure, we wanted to ensure that we had a company that was absolutely top shelf, but that could work to very tight deadlines. Active Testing Solutions offered us their overnight service which ensured that everything happened in time to meet the contract deadlines. It was a great experience and we highly recommend the company.
We were about to move into a home that we had rented. A friend of ours asked if we had got it tested for meth? We hadn’t even thought about it! We contacted Active Testing Solutions and they were able to come in the following day and we had the results within a couple of days. Amazing service and we highly recommend them.
We have recently bought a home in Tauranga and had been reading about the amount of meth that is being found in homes. For the sake of a few hundred dollars it was an absolute no brainer to have our home tested before we committed to the purchase. Active Testing Solutions were there within hours and we had the results within three days. It was a fantastic experience and I would highly recommend the company.
We had planned on using an alternative company that was slightly cheaper, until we found out that for almost the same price, we could use Active Testing Solutions. We were so impressed with their commitment to using individual samples which are then combined at their lab, rather than having one swab used over and over throughout the house. In the end it was a no brainer. A great company with a true commitment to helping keep kiwi families safe.
We didn’t realised that a lot of companies don’t go to the extent that Active Testing Solutions does in ensuring that each sample is treated separately right up until the lab takes a small portion of each sample to test as one. We loved the fact that they would store the rest of the samples individually for 30 days free of charge, just in case meth was found to be present. Five stars!
We were convinced that tenants in one of the rental properties that we have was using P. Because of this we jumped straight to the higher grade test. We were not disappointed. We were able to pinpoint exactly which room was contaminated and as such we were able to save a whole lot on the remediation work. While disappointing, that it was found Active Testing Solutions was great and we would highly recommend them to anyone that has this concern!
We were not 100% sure that the house that we were about to buy had been used to make meth, but we had our concerns. Because of this we jumped straight to the individual lab test and we were happy that we did. The garage was indeed contaminated. By jumping straight to this test, we were able to ensure that the house was completely safe and that it was just the garage the needed to be chemically cleaned. Highly recommend ATS.
We were distraught when ATS did the initial test for us and found that there was P contamination in the house that we had just bought. But they were able to recommend a remediation company to come in and fix it. Of course we got ATS back in to retest our home once the work had been done and the cleaning was all finished and we were over the moon to get the all clear. We can now rest easy. Thanks ATS.

First Home Buyers
The family home is often the largest purchase that we will ever make. It’s something that we spend years saving for and often months of scouring open homes to find. But when we do finally find that perfect home, it’s amazing and it feels like we would be willing to do just about anything to get it!
We know that it’s hard, but right now, when emotions are running high, you must hit the pause button and take a few simple steps to protect yourself. This is an incredibly exciting time and ensuring that you are protected against methamphetamine contamination and making sure that you are aware of any asbestos on site (and the implications of this), will give you peace of mind and add to the excitement.
Methamphetamine is pretty hot topic right now. You will probably have heard the horror stories of people purchasing a property and moving into their amazing new home only to find out down the track that the property is contaminated and requires remediation. In this instance, insurance will likely not pay for the remediation and these unlucky purchasers are left tens of thousands of dollars out of pocket. A simply, fully compliant meth test would have highlighted the issue and saved them the heartache.
We understand that meth is a controversial topic and you will likely have an opinion one way or the other as to the necessity of meth testing. Whether you decide to have the property tested or not is completely up to you, however we would encourage you to think really carefully about not spending a small amount now to save yourself tens of thousands of dollars down the track. The reality is that meth does cause health issues and properties that are holding unsafe contamination levels must be decontaminated if the occupants are to avoid getting sick. Please, get a test and protect yourself, your family and your investment.
Asbestos testing was historically a really expensive very invasive test that has never really been part of the home buying process. We aim to change that. Asbestos was used to create building materials right up until 1990 and those building materials were used to build houses right up until the year 2000. Most people don’t realise just how common the use of Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) really is! If you are looking at a house that was built prior to 1990, it will likely contain asbestos. If you are looking at home built between 1990 and 2000 there is still an incredibly high chance that you will find some ACM on site.
ATS has developed a Non-Invasive Visual Inspection which will tell you where the asbestos in the property is and whether you need to take action to remove it. In most cases, all that is needed is to be made aware of where the ACM is, so that you can keep an eye on it and ensure that it does not become damaged, which is when the asbestos fibres which can be deadly are released into the property.
