In this post we will cover how and why average shipments by DHL are prohibited from having gold bullion in them.
As well we will show you other options you can utilize to ship physical gold bullion throughout the USA (and possibly elsewhere around the world).
Of course many gold bullion dealers including us use various private delivery parcel services but we use third party insurance policies and have express written agreements to do so.
Most individuals involved in the process of gold bullion sold back to gold bullion dealers do not have access to these insurance policies due to limited volume and size of most shipments (there are some exceptions we will allude to later on).
The good news is that we can offer such services to our customer base as well. Simply give our bullion team a call ( at 1.800.294.8732 ) to to discuss our current gold shipping rates and procedures. For those selling and or shipping gold bullion in large size, we can also possible provide you with convenient professional gold shipping options as well.
First let us show you what DHL expressly prohibits from its US origin shipments so you fully understand that trying to ship gold on your own is risky and not allowed by DHL.
According to DHL, shipping gold bullion is akin to shipping illegal drugs, guns, and pornography (none are allowed without express written permission from DHL).
