Operational Update

Friday, July 23, 2021


Our offices will be closed from 3pm on Friday 30th July until 9am on Monday 9th August, to give our hard-working team a break after another very hectic period.

Our website will remain open to accept card payment orders up to the value of £10,000 throughout the closure period, but delivery will be delayed until our return.

We operate with a very small team and rather than rotating individuals onto annual leave and putting more pressure on the remaining staff members as a result, we have decided to close our offices for a full week so that everyone can get some much-needed rest and the opportunity to re-connect with family and friends as lockdown measures are now starting to ease.

We have timed the closure to minimize disruption as much as possible. Whilst we apologize for any inconvenience caused by the holiday closure, the wellbeing of our staff members and our ability to continue to provide outstanding service to our customers in the months ahead are of great importance to us.

As our offices will be unoccupied, please do not send items to us for delivery during the closure. Mail will not be delivered to us during this period and will be held in Royal Mail or courier depots until our return.

Wishing all of our customers a peaceful and healthy summer.

The Team at The Gold Bullion Co

Unprecedented demand continues for physical precious metals and whilst we are delighted that so many customers, old and new, put their faith in us to supply their requirements, the sheer level of demand is continuing to cause delays in sending out orders.

All acknowledged orders are safely price locked and allocated to existing stock, or, where notified, to scheduled deliveries from our suppliers. Your orders are safe and will be supplied as quickly as we are physically able, but we ask for your patience and understanding during this period when it is taking longer than usual for us to ship orders.

We have re-assigned some staff members to our packing department and our team is working extended hours in a continuing effort to reduce delivery delays as far as possible.

Please assist us in our efforts by not calling in or emailing to request dispatch information as this takes staff members away from the primary task of getting goods shipped to our customers. Our system will send an email to confirm when an order has been shipped.

At present, we are managing to ship the vast majority of orders within seven days and will continue to make every effort to reduce these delays over the coming days and weeks.

Thank you to all of our customers for your continuing support and patience.

Since February 1st we have seen a huge increase in silver demand from our customers and increases in premiums from manufacturers and suppliers as global demand increases.

Over the last weekend we have received the equivalent of three weeks’ worth of orders in the space of 48 hours!

We would like to thank our customers, old and new, for their patience during these turbulent market conditions.

Our staff have acted quickly to secure additional stocks and to cater for the increased demand going forward.

It is our intention to dispatch all currently received orders in the next 7 – 14 working days.

All the products that are listed for sale are either in stock or on order from our suppliers, with a firm commitment date for delivery to us, giving customers the opportunity to lock in the current metal price at the time of order.

We would like to assure all our customers that we are working hard to dispatch orders with the least delay possible whilst social distancing and observing other measures that are in place to keep our staff safe.
