Blanchard now offers an online shopping cart for internet sales. At the time that I did business with them (note: well over a decade ago), they were one of those companies that required you to call them and place orders over the phone. So, my review / rating will reflect my experience with phone orders.
If you place a phone order, Blanchard will try to sell you on buying metals on account with them (ie. not taking physical delivery) and using leverage/margin. If you want physical delivery, you have to insist on it and make darn sure that they have physical inventory on hand to fulfil your order. I would be leary if they could not commit to a prompt delivery schedule.
Blanchard was very helpful and professional on the phone. They delivered as promised and their S&H was fine.
