Travelling is stressful enough as it is, when you consider how much thought is involved. You’ve got to make sure that you have your passport on you and that its up-to-date; arranging transportation to and from the airport; is your accommodation booked? When should you arrive at the airport to allow you enough time to check in and get on your flight? Is your hand-luggage too heavy? Do you have everything you need? The list goes on and on and very rarely does it run as smoothly as we’d hope.
Now consider all of that, but you’re travelling with expensive equipment! You’ve seen enough television to know that the baggage handlers don’t put the safety of your personal bits at the very forefront of their priorities. In their eyes, its your duty to ensure that your items are secure and in sturdy enough baggage to survive being lugged around and tossed from one conveyor belt to the other.
Make Your Life Easier with Custom Made Flight Cases
This is why it is so important that you consider investing in custom made cases for your equipment, particularly if it is of significant value to you (whether financial or sentimental) That was you can rest assured that no matter what, your equipment is entirely safe and will be able to endure the hardships of its journey without any issues whatsoever.
And it’s not just about bags being tossed around carelessly. (We’re not saying that is always the case, but you can’t guarantee otherwise so it is best to be prepared for the worst treatment), but there are temperature issues to consider as well. It’s not exactly all that warm in the cargo hold of an airplane, and some equipment is more susceptible to temperature related damage than others, particularly if there is moisture in the air.
By having your own custom-built flight case for your equipment, you can have it tailored to suit your specific requirements perfectly. This could be anything from the foam padding inside, water and temperature proofing, down to the aesthetic appeal so that you can easily identify it (rather than waiting for half an hour trying to differentiate your case from the rest)
If this is something that you’re interested in exploring further, there are many reputable companies out there who can assist you. Take Aerolyte for example; a reputable Australian based business that offers a 7-year guarantee on their equipment. A little peace of mind for you when you’ve got a million and one other things to be worried about while you’re tearing around the airport and trying to make it onto your flight on time.
The last thing you need is to get off your flight only to find that your equipment is damaged, especially if you need it for work. Ensure the safety of your equipment (and your sanity when you arrive at your destination) and invest in a well-made, custom built flight case for your gear and equipment.
