Buying PMs bureaucracy-free

I know this site recommends several sites for precious metals like BullionVault and GoldMoney. I myself am a patron, but would like physical delivery.

Is Hard Assets Alliance a good choice? I'm concerned about having to go through bureaucratic hoops in shipping.

Trading precious metals on line

Does anyone know of any companies where I can buy and sell precious metals on line like KITCO.  I use Kitco, but would like to diversify so I am with a few companies since I do not like to have all my eggs in one basket, so to speak.
