In spite of the positives previously addressed and a 4.5/5 TrustLink rating, customer comments very frequently refer to very slow or misrepresented delivery times. Trust Pilot gives US Gold Bureau a ranking of 9.1/10 and once again shipping problems and excessive shipping time are frequent areas of concern. Customer comments also refer to items shipped different from those ordered, order cancellations without immediate explanation, and an abundance of time wasted trying to correct mistakes. A number of US Gold Bureau reviews found on major review sites report that US Gold Bureau is aware of and working on solutions to these most common complaints, which bodes well for future ratings. However, at this time and for these reasons, US Gold Bureau did not qualify for our Top 10 Gold IRA Companies and Bullion Dealers.
