We know how important it is to keep your gold and silver secure. To ensure the metals’ safe arrival to their storage location, Augusta Precious Metals covers all shipping and liability insurance costs for your metals until they are delivered to your storage location.
Precious metals in a gold IRA will be delivered to an approved highly secure depository storage facility you choose. Refer to this page to learn more about the approved storage facility recommended by Augusta.
Precious metals purchased through an Augusta cash account (outside of an IRA) will be sent directly to the destination of your choice. You only take responsibility for the metals after you receive them or they are delivered to a secure depository.
Once your metals arrive at their destination, Augusta’s free transit insurance expires:
|Depository shipments. The moment your gold or silver arrives at an approved depository, the facility’s comprehensive insurance policy provides coverage.|
|Direct shipments. Once your metals arrive at a destination other than an approved depository, you are responsible for them and must insure them yourself if you choose to.|
Augusta will receive a delivery confirmation from the shipping provider. We ship via USPS Express Mail, Registered Insured or Federal Express to any location in the United States. Large orders are shipped via Brinks Armored.
All of our packages are carefully wrapped in a discreet box that gives no indication of its contents. Not even the delivery person will know what’s inside.
Shipment Delivery Time and Tracking
We normally ship orders about 7 to 10 business days after your order is confirmed. We will notify you by email of the shipment date and tell you which carrier will deliver your precious metals. You can prepare for your shipment’s delivery by tracking the shipment status on the carrier’s website. Please note that wait times are expected when the supply is disrupted due to unique circumstances (i.e., COVID-19).
Please contact us if you have any questions about shipping and insurance coverage.
