4 key advantages of using flight cases to transport equipment
It doesn’t matter what industry you’re in – if you have to move equipment, then logistics is always going to be one of your key concerns as a business. After all, it’s not just about getting to your destination, but ensuring that you do so with minimum risk of damage to your equipment, and that it can be safely stored or installed once you get there.
All that’s as true for power distros as it is for anything else, so it’s an area that we’ve got a bit of experience in ourselves here at Rubber Box. That’s why we’ve got a variety of flight cases to choose from right here on our site, alongside our range of electrical distribution equipment. Here are 4 reasons why they’re so useful!
Flight cases help give you peace of mind
It makes sense to start with their core practical purpose, and the reason why they were designed; they’re excellent for protecting valuable equipment and components as they’re being transported, providing a solid barrier against all the normal knocks and bumps that they might otherwise be subjected to while out on the roads, air or sea. That can ultimately end up saving you from the considerable expense and hassle you’d otherwise have to deal with if something got broken or damaged in transit.
However, something that not many people always consider is that flight cases can also be useful for protecting people from the objects themselves, especially if they’re sharp, heavy, or present slightly less obvious hazards. Streaming cables, for example, even if they’re tied up, can end up being tripping hazards if they’re simply left on the floor of the transport vehicle.
They facilitate easier loading and unloading
By keeping everything neatly contained in flight cases, even large or irregularly shaped items can be easily loaded into transport vehicles and safely secured in place, saving you from having to tie them down in increasingly awkward configurations. By the same token, flight cases also make everything quicker, simpler, and possibly even safer when unloading at your destination. That’s especially useful when you’re on a tight deadline to get everything up and running, such as for a festival or sporting event.
They look professional for clients, audiences or investors
First impressions are everything in many industries, especially in ones as tightly regimented as music events or sporting competitions. Let’s be honest, it doesn’t always look hugely professional to be hurriedly unloading with bundles of objects gathered up in your arms, and hastily deposited. Using flight cases helps everything go a lot more smoothly and efficiently, which not only reduces stress for you, but also helps you to project a calm, collected and professional image to everyone else present. Impressing the venue’s officials, business partners, or other persons of interest can sometimes make all the difference as to whether they’ll seek your services again in future!
They’re available in a range of shapes and sizes to suit your purposes
Modern flight cases are available in a huge range of shapes, sizes and configurations, so whatever you need to move around, you can count on there being a specialised case to suit you. You can find cases for musical instruments, DJ equipment, computers, photography, video equipment, DIY equipment, catering materials and more.
