Buying options from Romania

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi guys.

I am looking to buy one or two silver bars and I could not find a trustworthy store so far that delivers to Romania. Any thoughts on the options and where to buy from will be appreciated, I am sure there are other members who had the same problem.

It all depends on what you are looking to purchase, usually members will buy coins due to lower/no VAT.

I've done businesses with (buying AU/AG/PL )

https://www.coininvest.com/en/

https://www.europeanmint.com/

https://www.eldoradocoins.de/en

https://goldvorsorge.at/

all ship to RO

 

Don't forget that TSF has a great trading section https://www.thesilverforum.com/forum/13-uk-europe/ and many members will ship to RO

 

Also (have option to ship to RO, haven't done business with them but they are highly trusted )

https://www.chards.co.uk/

https://www.bairdmint.com/

 

Before committing to a purchase  (from a new PM dealer) do a search on the forum/ ask is this dealer  trustworthy / has anyone use them.

Also, you should read about others experience and learn what to avoid.

 

Happy hunting .

Ps: All the decisions are yours and yours alone, I've just share a few things from my own experience and what I've learn since joining the TSF community.

@daca MultumEsti, thank you very much for the info. I am more inclined to buy a couple of silver bars (500g/1kg) instead of coins and after finding a lot of suspicious sites and local sites which are a lot more expensive, I found the forum. Buying from here will definitely be an option in the future. The sites you mentioned mostly sell coins but there are bars as well.

I wanted to create an account at Auvesta.com but they want a lot of personal details and I am sceptical. They seem to have the lowest price around with 688eur (incl vat) for a 1kg Hearaeus and their local sales rep are quick. I am not sure if there are any additional customs charges but from what I read that is the full price+shipping. Any experience with Auvesta? https://www.auvesta.com/preise-barren.php

@daca Thanks. They have a auvesta.ro as well, in Romanian but you can not create an account unless you send them an email. They want a lot of details incl. ID card and bank statement to open an account because of money laundering but I haven't found much info about them, is this normal? 

I could not find much options for a 1kg silver bar on the sites you mentioned and the product reviews are mixed. By the way, thanks for the warnings on suspicious sites.

@silverdocket Thanks. I really can't risk losing the money and silver on the shipping so there has to be an option. I would not mind buying from a trustworthy member for a good price but it must be a safe delivery.

The only options is to buy from a member close to you or jump on a cheap flight and pick up from somebody.

Once you go over a few hundred Euro insurance is a must.

Thanks but traveling is not what I had in mind, I know it would be a lot easier. There must be shipping insurance on the delivery service, how come that is not an option? I also found this thread which can be helpful:

I have a 100 oz silver bar up for sale, should that be of interest to you. I have no problem shipping to Romania.

Royalmint and  Baird have ask me for ID card/ passport and proof of address, but never a bank statement.

Transferwise requested a ID card (I use them for all my PM purchase, better rates than my bank)
