meet zipcar for business members chess & bridge

Each month we put the spotlight on one of our Zipcar for Business accounts to celebrate the great work they do and how they use Zipcar to make it happen. This month meet Chess & Bridge, the UK's largest supplier of chess and games equipment. Read on to find out more about Chess & Bridge and how they use Zipcar.

Chess and Bridge

"Every chess player knows that strategy and planning is the key to success and you don’t need to be Gary Kasparov to work out the logistics of transport are vital to any retail business.

Chess & Bridge Ltd is the UK's leading online supplier of chess and games equipment with a busy shop near Selfridges on Baker Street and a warehouse in north London. As well as chess sets we sell quantities of poker equipment, books, DVD’s, software, Scrabble sets, board games and even card tables.

We have a regular supply run from warehouse to shop and using Zipcar makes a lot of sense, especially as it means we don’t pay the London Congestion Charge with every trip. And when the unexpected occurs, as happened recently when a customer demanded half a dozen computer chessboards and a giant chess set within the hour, having access to a Zipvan meant we made the sale and the delivery deadline.

Zipcar’s competitive pricing and strong customer service are the reasons we will stick with them and why we hope to be “check-mates” in business for a long time to come."

Matthew Read, Manager at Chess & Bridge
