There are many different types of chess pieces, from hand-carved wooden chess pieces, pieces of gold, silver, steel, to pieces of plastic. The transport of these pieces according to use requires having adequate material for their storage. For this, there are many different styles of chess boxes, but we can divide them into two categories. Boxes to transport from one place to another or boxes to add to an elegant display of chess sets. In this article we are going to see different bags, boxes or suitcases. Some exclusive boxes that we will show are not intended to be transported, but would be better to complete a display piece.
Of course, if you have animals or babies at home, having a chess box is not a bad idea to keep your precious chess set safe.
Although these boxes are designed for chess pieces, they may be suitable for storing other valuables.
When carrying the pieces from one place to another in short distances, transporting the chess pieces in an easy and light way is usually a requirement of chess players.
Unlike the boxes, both made of wood or plastic, where they are stored in a safer way to be able to transport without losing or damaging any piece, the use of the bags in short journeys safely and lightly carrying our chess pieces, it's what makes chess players go for piece bags.
In our selection, in case of not having a simple bag we have a clear decision.
How we show in the dedicated section of our website on giant boards , to be able to store the chess pieces or checkers pieces, there is a standard bag for it. This product contains two bags, one for each color of the pieces or chips, the functionality is very easy. This mesh-shaped bag allows you to put all the pieces inside and once inside, adjust it with the rope, when moving it, it can be dragged and stored if not used.
Normally, the pieces that we buy come with a box to store the chess pieces, but sometimes with use they begin to wear out until they end up breaking or losing the lid. In this case we show you the two main types of boxes, the plastic and wooden boxes. The plastic boxes allow in an economical and light way to move the pieces from one place to another, however in the event of a blow the pieces may suffer some damage. That is why there are wooden boxes, a much more resistant place that will keep our pieces safe, to begin we are going to see different plastic boxes.
In this case, Amazon's best-selling plastic box is as follows.
A plastic box that comes with parts included where in an elegant way they can be removed to use in our games, there is no doubt why it is the best seller and all those positive evaluations that it has, also with an incredible price.
Wooden boxes are classic in this sport, when it comes to wanting to move on long trips in a safe way (without damaging our material), wooden boxes are ideal.
There are different types of wooden boxes, in this sport as in all there are fans who prefer material of an exclusive style (if you want to see some exclusive material I leave you our section on it), the boxes to store the pieces are no less and there are also boxes exclusive. These exclusive boxes are often boxes to display the pieces, with very careful materials, handcrafted or with limited units.
At this point, we are going to see some of the most purchased non-exclusive wooden boxes, at the end of this article we will see exclusive boxes.
The first box, in addition to being very economical, meets all the requirements, a box of natural boxwood, made and varnished in wood, with Amazon ratings that leave no doubt about the quality and with a unique price.
Second, we leave you a basic wooden box. A box that the main characteristic is that it adjusts to any type of piece thanks to the different dimensions, in addition, the quality price is undoubtedly adequate.
Finally, those who are looking for a product with a little more aesthetic, we leave this mahogany wood box product, this box has a hinged closure and with the dimensions so that most of the stauton pieces fit. But the most surprising of all is the price, we let you discover it for yourself.
Tournament organizers (although this section only shows boxes to store chess clocks, I leave you the link to the dedicated section for tournament organizers ) they move a lot of material continuously, for many weekends they are in different cities and it is important to be able to transport the material carefully. As we have seen, nobody gives away the official tournament material.
Not only organizers, clubs when it comes to making exhibitions, campus or teaching also have to move the material so having the right material to do so is important. For many years, we have seen a huge box that contains all the chess clock or parts, which finally begin to break and make it complex in some situations to be able to move the material.
Clocks as we have shown in the chess clocks section is a material that must be taken care of, for them there are wooden boxes or metal boxes.
Wood or metal make it have rigid walls to avoid bumps or falls, without a doubt they make it a bit heavier. But being able to have the safe material so as not to have scares is worth it.
The first product is the wooden watch box, in this box you can move 8 chess clock to transport, with a handle which makes it very simple.
The DGT aluminum box, in addition to being a material equal to or more resistant than the wooden one, has a device that allows you to add a password. In this way, you can add a key to complicate in case of losing or taking away our material.
Not only do we have to move the clocks, to complete the game tables of the chess games the boards are necessary. As we have seen, there is a large number of different boards (plastic, metal, wood, glass, stone, electronic, exclusive, etc.), I leave you the section in case you have not read it about chess boards .
For plastic or wooden boards we recommend this first transport bag, with dimensions of 64 x 60 x 2.5 it allows several boards to be transported together. The system is a velcro fabric system, which in a simple way allows the tournament boards to be moved.
In large tournaments, there are different broadcast boards, these boards are very expensive and delicate. A small bump can cause the sensors to become unbalanced and not be able to retransmit games correctly. DGT knows this and that is why they brought out a special carrying bag for the boards.
This bag allows you to carry the set of boards and cables that you require in a simple and safe way. Knowing that when you get to the next tournament, the board will work (what worse feeling than arriving at the tournament in a hurry, testing the board to broadcast the games and not working).
Finally, House of Staunton has a slightly special product. For organizers or people who want a board, clock and that can be transported all together, they allow to configure the complete set of products. In this way, you can choose the board, pieces and clocks, being able to transport everything in the same bag.
