I need a transport solution for some shock-sensitive equipment. Looking at large Pelican cases (1600 or im2700 or larger) and good quality PE foam. If you have one for sale or know where I can buy these cheap, please let me know

I have several Safe Cases from Super Cheap Auto.


They work well for me.


Something like:


Don't know how that compares to what you were looking at.

Thanks for the tip. The explorer case looks interesting...and may be just what I need.

Be careful putting cases like that on a plane though. In my experience the baggage handlers will deliberately drop them.




Best to pack the shockproof case inside cardboard so it doesn't look like it's fragile.




Also, don't put 'fragile' stickers on it as they will use that as an excuse if the item is damaged.
