Domain Name Information
The domain record provides the information to show that this site has been around for a very long time. The address was registered in the year 2000 and doesn’t need to be renewed until 2022. A long registration and a domain which has been registered for more than one year at a time are indications that this site is operated by a legit business.
Business Contact Details
The business provides a contact address on their site which is good to find. When we check this address we can see that it seems to be a genuine warehouse location on an industrial estate.
The business name of the company which operates the site is called ‘H I Weldrick Ltd’. This business claims to be based in the UK so we can check on the British Government Companies House website that they are legit.
They are a correctly registered business with the British Government and we can see that the company has been registered since 1959. Such a long history certainly suggests that this would be a safe place to purchase your meds online.
Weldricks currently operates 63 pharmacy stores in South Yorkshire, England.
This online pharmacy is required to be following the law for operation in the UK. Included in these rules is the requirement that the common European distance selling logo is displayed on every page which sells medication. They are correctly showing this logo.
It is also a requirement that they are registered with the British Government agency which oversees the selling of drugs online. This agency is called the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency and we can see that they are once again correctly registered.
As this business is operating a pharmacy, they are also required to be registered and regulated by the General Pharmaceutical Council. A check with the GPC shows that they are registered but using a different address to the one we have already seen. This other address is found elsewhere on their store, so it is associated with the business.
Despite all this correct regulation, they remain unverified on LegitScript. This doesn’t mean that they’re not a safe pharmacy, just that they haven’t been reviewed by the site.
This online pharmacy offers the sort of wide range of product you would normally expect to find in a real-world drugstore. They provide over the counter medications and a prescription refill service.
Payment and Shipping
The site is secure and you are able to pay using:
- Major credit cards
- Apple Pay
There are quite a few options when it comes to shipping. Standard delivery is free on orders over £35 and costs £3.19 below that threshold, it is expected to take 3 to 5 days. Other delivery methods include 48-hour which costs from £3.49 and two next-day services one which requires a signature from a cost of £3.89. All these delivery options include tracking and Royal Mail is used.
There is another option for special delivery next-day before 1 PM which is provided by DPD. This costs from £5.48 and also includes tracking. If these options weren’t enough, there is also the opportunity to collect your order from one of their pharmacy branches.
When looking at customer feedback we see that there are Weldricks.co.uk reviews on Trustpilot. The pharmacy has a very impressive 32,000 customer testimonials on the site, with so few 1 and 2-star comments that they register as 0%.
With so much feedback, it would be very unlikely that these comments aren’t from genuine customers. The orders are verified and some of the customers have provided multiple reviews of the pharmacy. This shows that the store is asking for feedback from their users.
It seems clear that this is a safe choice to purchase your medical supplies online. They have a lot of really great feedback and are correctly regulated.
While this is all good, there is an issue with the store. They don’t ship all their products all over the world, some products can’t be dispatched to European addresses outside of the UK. It is a slightly confusing situation and for this reason, we award Weldricks 4 stars out of a possible five.
