Live music is bigger than ever in the UK – the last 5 years have seen festival and concert sales become a headline act in the leisure industry, with 2 in 5 Brits attending a live music event in 2015 and spending an estimated £2.1 billion between them.
And for today’s bands living in a world of free online video, music streaming services and diminishing record sales, touring is becoming an increasingly important source of fresh promotion, income and connecting with audiences.
However, taking your gear out with you on the road can be stressful. Flightcase Warehouse has worked with a long line of music industry buffs from touring bands to production aficionados, so we know that even on the best of days, professional equipment can be expensive to insure, difficult to repair and often impossible to replace.
The constant setting up, tearing down and travelling between shows can also be intense and hard-wearing for your kit (and at times, you!) so we know that anything that helps keep your operation at full throttle is a win.
Whether you’re an emerging artist or a chart topping act, it’s essential that you have protection you can rely on to keep your equipment safe and secure while up on the stage, out on the road or at home in the studio. This is where we come in.
Flightcase Warehouse has over 20 years of experience manufacturing serious protection for musicians and technicians just like you.
Our flightcases have joined performers and producers on tour across the globe, and are built to withstand everything life on the road can throw at them. This allows you to focus on what matters most: the music. Here’s what Flightcase Warehouse does best:
Safety:We use the highest quality materials, and inserts personalised to your gear to keep it extra-safe and secure during transit and storage.
Reliability: Our products travel across the globe and they don't let down. They're durable, hard-wearing and fit to withstand all of the demands of life on the road!
Branding: We brand our flightcases with your logo, getting your name out there, whether you're setting up stage or travelling between shows.

Road Ready manufactured cases are built for the long haul and are seriously tough. Constructed from a rugged 9mm vinyl laminated plywood with a tongue-and-groove fit, these cases offer a structurally strong and damage resistant protective solution that will handle whatever the streets throw your way.
Road Ready cases feature a host of features designed to offer maximum protection for your gear, including:
- Industrial grade rivets, hinges, corners & latches for rock-solid structural support
- Heavy duty castors, low profile wheels and rubber feet for easy mobility and to prevent ‘road rash’
- Shock Mount suspension system to absorb blunt trauma
They’re also packed with convenient solutions tailored to musicians to make your set-up and tear-down quick and easy, such as:
- Hide-away pull-out handles for efficient storage during transit
- Hinged and removable front and rear panels for hassle free access
- Integrated storage compartments to store your cables and accessories
- Pick and fit z-lock foam customised to the shape of your gear

Here’s what Road Ready have to say:
“We do one thing and we do it well. We don't waste time making cases that don't last. Our bad boys are built for the rigors of the road. Built to take a pounding - day in and day out - and look good doing it. That's our calling and we take it seriously. We know you invest a lot of money in your gear and need the toughest protection around - period.”

We can’t believe that it’s already been two months since the launch of Pro Flightcase - our bespoke service for custom-built flightcases. Pro Flightcase has already proven to be somewhat of a game-changer for our customers and we’ve been delighted to see its popularity spread across a diverse range of industries, including retail, audiovisual, lighting and sound, motorsport and equestrian.
Pro Flightcase combines the best of our team’s knowledge, skill, passion and practical understanding to deliver quality on budget and on time. Every Pro Flightcase goes through our six-step process, taking it from briefing and planning right through to delivery.
And don’t forget, each step offers customisation to your exact requirements – meaning that your valued kit is guaranteed to always find its perfect fit.
You provide us with your requirements – simply call, email or visit us at our Tamworth site and let us know what you need. We then use this information to produce a detailed overview of your flightcase, which we then give back to you for sign off. We won’t make a move until you’re happy.
Measurements are critical for any flightcase. It’s important that you know, rather than guess; to ensure you have the correct measurements, we provide you with both our measuring service and expert advice. We measure twice, cut once.
Your case is designed in a state of the art CAD environment. We use the latest software available - Solidworks and Alphacam, in addition to our own bespoke CAD software. We then present the design to you and request your sign off before progressing with the build.
We continually invest in new equipment, ensuring that your flightcase will be cut using the latest production methods and technology. Our cutting process uses a multi-head CNC alongside precision aluminium and foam cutters to ensure clean and accurate cuts throughout your case’s panels, fittings and inserts.
With 2 production lines, 28,000 square feet of manufacturing space, and departments specialised to handle each aspect of the assembly process, we’re able to provide some of the fastest build times in the industry.
Once assembled, your flightcase will undergo a rigorous quality control process to ensure it meets all of your requirements. After we have received the final sign off, the case will be packaged and dispatched. We’re able to deliver anywhere, and offer a range of couriers to choose from.
