Cello Flight Case Rental

Posted on | May 15, 2014 | 4 Comments|

We have a ‘Bam‘ Cello Flight Case now available for rent.  We’ve successfully used this case to fly with cellos in North America.  It increases protection for the cello during flights when the cello is placed with the hand loaded cargo. We thought cellists traveling to summer festivals, courses and concerts might find it useful just rent a good flight case for a short time when they need it.

bam-caseThe flight case is in two parts. The standard case is placed inside the thick protective outer shell while traveling.  Once a cellist arrives at their destination, they can use the light weight standard case to get around and leave the outer case at their hotel or residence.

The rental fee is $35 per week, plus a refundable deposit, for both the outer case and standard cello case.

Cellists interested to rent a flight case can contact us at 613 569 4803.

    Hi there! My son has been invited to accompany a singing group to play in Scotland this summer for a week in July. A great opportunity. Now to try to figure out how to fly his cello out there safely and came across your website. We are looking to rent a flight case/hard case for this purpose. Our dates we would need it are July 11-20, 2016. The problem is I see your address is in Ottawa and we are in Toronto. Any plans on being in the Toronto area near those dates? We are planning on visiting Ottawa coincidentally after the trip so could easily return to you.

    I appreciate your suggestions

    Hello – Thank you for your question regarding the flight cases. I’m sorry I have no plans to travel to Toronto this summer. If you can visit Ottawa before July 11th, of course I would rent the flight case to you.

    You could try calling violin shops in Toronto and ask if they rent a Bam flight case. Some shops in the US are also renting cases to help their clients and perhaps one shop in Toronto could do the same. All the best for your trip to Scotland!

    My son is looking to travel to Ottawa at the end of August to attend the University of Ottawa for the musicprogram.
    He needs a Bam flight case to travel from Calgary to Ottawa. Is there any way you could send one to Calgary that we could rent?

    Thank you for the question. I don’t ship such a large case. It’s only available for pick up at my workshop. So sorry!
