- You say that your chess pieces are the best in the world; what makes them so special and better than other sets I can buy from other chess shops?
The Regency Chess Company has an exclusive agreement with the worlds finest wooden chess piece manufacturers, you won't find better quality wooden chess pieces in the UK. We have carefully scrutinised all of the wooden chess piece manufacturers and settled on the very best in the industry. Our luxury chessmen have to be seen to be believed in relation to their quality and perfection. For those insisting on the best, our chessmen represent the very best there is.
- Which courier company do you use for delivery?
We currently use FedEx and Royal Mail for UK residential deliveries & UPS for UK business and international shipping. You can choose your delivery option at checkout.
- You refer to some chess pieces on your website at being 'Investment Grade' - what does this mean?
Our luxury chessmen are crafted to the highest possible standards from rare and exotic woods. Some of these woods are endangered and the chessmen are made from old existing stocks of the wood, in some cases stored for over a decade. The price of these materials is sky rocketing as a result and it's widely expected that within the next ten years the export of products made from these materials will have to end due to supply issues. Collectors therefore regard finely crafted and certified original artefacts made from these woods to be good investments. Their value is certain to rise.
- Will my chess set automatically come with a storage box and, if not, how do I choose one?
Some of our sets are already matched with a chess piece storage case but not all. Each product listing has a "What's included" list under the images. If the set of choice is not listed as having a box, when you add it to the basket you will have a selection of up to 3 recommended cases that will accommodate the pieces in that particular set. If you would like to see the full range of our cases and cabinets, please click here, where each product will advise the size of King it is able to accommodate in the description.
- Do you purchase second hand chess sets?
No, we do not purchase second hand chess sets.
- Do you offer engraving or other personalisation on any of your products?
No, we do not offer engraving nor other personalisations on any products.
