I'm looking for two 1200 flight cases!

Just would point out an alternative is to use these and some kind of wrap around the package to safely transport:


I got two of these over the years, when moving last year was able to bring them to the new location with peace of mind! There's a central cut in the plastic design which you can use with a strap to keep the cover on

I'd never heard of those before. They would make nice dust covers but I'm looking for something that can survive a moving company's knocks or the back of a pickup truck. I reached out to George at Shakedown Sound for some used flight cases which I would prefer to get. Also reached out to Phil at Clydesdale (Canadian manufacturing FTW) and he can make me a couple but I'll have to pay more for them. If George can't find any, I'll likely buy from Clydesdale. Might get a couple of those polycarbonate covers for inside the house.

That's cool - when moving i try to take "sensitive" equipment and electronics in our rental car or whatever while movers take the rest of everything - so if you're throwing these on a car seat you control, having one of these lids on with a strap to keep it on is pretty safe/secure. Of course for your use-case, something more protective all around may be called for!

I'm likely doing a two stage move where my stuff will be in storage until I find a new location to buy. Thus the flight cases.

Alex, If you are unable to find them, i have used "deck savers" and then wrapped them up real nice using pallet wrap and a moving blanket. Deck savers are nice to have just to keep the dust out of yours do not have original lids.

edit: Also try System Music Warehouse (Pickering) for either.

Bought a pair of cases from George at Shakedown and they are excellent, well made pro cases for just a little more than the plastic tops.
