The standard service level is based on our typical turnaround times and allows for efficient organisation of our workload. This is offered at the usual prices. See below for turnaround times. We will always seek to improve on this turnaround time, but our ability to do that will be determined by the workload at the time. We will review our standard turnaround from time to time according to capacity and customer feedback.
