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 provides free shipping and transit insurance.
Precious metals in a gold IRA will be delivered to an approved highly secure, risk-averse depository storage facility you choose. Refer to this page to learn more about one of the approved storage facilities 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. We require a signature upon delivery. You only take responsibility for the metals after you sign for them.
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 all-risk 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.
To protect your purchase and your privacy, all precious metals are securely packaged and shipped discreetly. No one – not even the delivery person – will know what’s inside.
Shipment Delivery Time and Tracking
We ship orders about 7 to 10 business days after purchase confirmation. 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 contact us if you have any questions about shipping and insurance coverage.
