Home      Dealer List      William Rand Antiques      Customer Testimonials

I recently purchased online a rare pair of Georgian silver spectacles complete with their original tortoiseshell and silver case. The service and customer care I received from William Rand Antiques was superb. The items were very carefully packed and also arrived very promptly.

I bought, online, a small wine table from William Rand Antiques. I made an enquiry which was promptly answered by Will and I agreed to buy it.

The table arrived at my home in Suffolk 24hours after leaving the Isle of Man, superbly packaged and in perfect condition. I was very pleased with it and it proudly stands in my sitting room here at home.

The service I received was very friendly and professional and when Will learned that my grandfather lost his life on the Ellan Vannin in 1909 he kindly sent me a photograph of theMemorial Stone which stands on the quay in Ramsey from whence the Ellan Vannin left that fateful night. I was very touched by his thoughtfulness.

Their antiques are of high quality and their service second to none.

I had an excellent experience with Will from William Rand Antiques. He replied promptly to my e-mails with extra details about the cupboard I purchased, and always in an extremely professional and polite manner. He arranged a very good courier to deliver the cupboard who was equally as polite and professional. I would not hesitate to go back to William Rand Antiques in future.

Mr.P, London

As a professional, when I buy something I am looking for two things - 1. Is the product/service good AND2. Is the customer care/attention also of a high standard? A lot of companies these days don't get or do No.2

In my purchase with William Rand Antiques, they did well on both. Thank you.

I was looking for an antique spoon by a specific maker and I contacted William Rand Antiques as I had seen similar spoons on their website in the past. Everything ran smoothly. The communication was friendly and professional and the set of spoons arrived in time and well packed-up. The items were beautiful and exactly as described. I highly recommend William Rand Antiques and I will definitely use their services again in the future.

Mrs. N. Davies, Isle of Man

The vesta has arrived this morning safe and sound. It is gorgeous. Thank you. Thanks very much also for the beautiful gift box and very thoughtful packaging. It is a very nice solid piece and given the age its perfect.
I am not really a collector, it is more of an everyday carry item. I put some matches in it and now it is back in service.
Many thanks again for your kind arrangement on this transaction.

Mr. B. Keung, Canada

The music stand arrived yesterday in perfect condition, having been extremely well packed-up. It is far nicer than it looked in the photographs, thank you very much.

Dr. Lista, UK

I am a customer of William Rand Antiques owned by Will Rand.

My first purchase was in 2013 and was an Edwardian bookcase made by Druce & Co of London which fitted in very well with the existing furniture in the study.
I found Will very helpful in advising me on this purchase and giving value for money.

My family as a result of this first purchase asked him for help in finding a suitable larger bookcase for our period home. Will suggested a period piece, which we liked, and fitted in proportionately with the existing furniture and this was purchased in 2014.

Will is also very knowledgeable onManx paintings and watercolours and I subsequently purchased an EdwardChristian Quayle painting from William Rand Antiques.

I have also received help and advice from Will in selecting trained and reliable restorers in repairing antique furniture and arranging for transport to and from the Isle of Man to facilitate this.

As a result of these experiences I can fully recommend Will Rand and William Rand Antiques for friendly, knowledgeable, honest and value for money goods and services.
