Extending or exchanging a warehouse receipt or relocating precious metals

At OrSuisse, you can extend or exchange a warehouse receipt or chose a new storage for your precious metals at all times. This can be done by postal mail or in person at our offices.
After the extension or exchange, you will receive your new warehouse receipts from OrSuisse.

An exchange can for example become necessary when all endorsement fields on it have already been used or when the owner wishes to store the precious metals at another warehouse (relocation).
An extension is necessary when the prepaid duration of storage has expired.

After an exchange, the remaining storage fees will be entirely credited to the client pro rata temporis, and the new storage fees calculated accordingly.
