“Merced County Schools Insurance Group has contracted with Preferred Alliance since DOT-required compliance began for our Member District’s commercially licensed drivers. The program has been seamless and, without exception, perfectly compliant and trouble free.

The on-site testing option makes all the difference. Employees appreciate the convenient, consistent and respectful handling of the sampling process. Equally important is that the school districts are not inconvenienced. Many drivers also work in other capacities after driving their morning routes. If the testing were at a remote facility, many employers would lose service and productivity. With on-site testing, there’s no delay.

Preferred Alliance’s reporting and documentation services have resulted in years of successful audits by CHP. We would never consider changing to a different provider—Preferred Alliance is truly the best partner in assisting our Member Districts.”

“As the Human Resources Manager for Del Monte Foods’ Modesto plant, I have had the pleasure of working with Preferred Alliance for our seasonal drug testing needs since 1998. Preferred Alliance offers quality customer service and quick and accurate results. In our industry, we place high demands on our testing providers for flexible scheduling, quick turnaround, and competitive pricing. Preferred Alliance has consistently exceeded our expectations.”

“It would have been a virtual “feather in my hardhat” had I selected Preferred Alliance and its vendor partner, On Site Health & Safety, but both were in place at our tunnel project when I arrived. In my 14 months here, it has been a most satisfactory and beneficial association. Preferred Alliance’s professional and empathetic management, On Site’s scheduling and coordination of drug testing and training at our location, and immediate response for service needs have made all the difference.

Both are all “pro-client.” The construction industry is often plagued with last-minute changes and needs arising minute by minute. Our group couldn’t ask for better response. Preferred knows their business and strives to understand ours.”

“DOT regulations are complex with plenty of grey areas—one mistake can close us down. Preferred Alliance’s timely response and accurate information on how to manage the testing process has helped us achieve “letter-perfect” compliance.

Our business as an agricultural carrier is seasonal. We can grow from 50 to 350 drivers in a week. Turnaround time for results is critical—we have 30 days to qualify new drivers. Preferred provides on-site testing once or twice yearly at convenient locations, as well as all related forms and paperwork in a secure chain of custody. And the online services help expedite reporting. We’ve had a great relationship for almost 10 years—there’s no reason to consider anyone else.”

“We started with Preferred Alliance when the DOT first began enforcing the random drug and alcohol rule. I have never worried about recordkeeping or testing matters because of their management of these highly sensitive, complex tasks. With Preferred Alliance as our TPA, we’re confident our compliance record will stay intact.”

John Rossi, Vice President

“Balfour Beatty depends on Preferred Alliance’s services to keep us compliant. Preferred’s knowledge of substance abuse testing and expert program management are two of the many reasons why we recommend them.”
