In the half-century since its inception, the Bel-Air custom carrying case has become synonymous with unparalleled protection, innovation, and bespoke design. Born from a vision to revolutionize the way we transport and safeguard our most valuable items, Bel-Air has meticulously crafted a legacy that blends cutting-edge technology with unmatched craftsmanship.

9 Reasons To Buy Custom Carrying Cases

While off-the-shelf cases have a somewhat lower price tag, opting for a 100% custom equipment case can be the best option for some and here are just a few compelling reasons to consider a custom carry case or custom shipping cases.

  1. Tailored Fit: Custom cases are designed to fit the exact dimensions of your equipment, ensuring a snug and secure fit. This minimizes movement and potential damage during transportation.
  2. Enhanced Protection: With custom foam inserts and specific design features, custom cases offer superior protection against impacts, vibrations, and environmental factors like dust and moisture.
  3. Optimized for Specific Needs: You can design the case to meet specific requirements, such as meeting ATA standards or perhaps MIL specs. If you need an ATA case or a case that meets military or aerospace requirements, we have the experience to handle the requests with ease.
  4. Professional Appearance: Any custom carry case can be designed with a professional look, including brand colors, molded-in logos, and specific aesthetics that align with your company or personal style, such as custom decals or engraved plates. We make branding custom cases easy!
  5. Efficient Organization: A custom case foam interior can be designed to hold multiple items securely in an organized manner, which is particularly useful for complex equipment setups. Every custom carrying case you order includes a custom foam interior that cushions every inch of your equipment, and no matter how complex an interior you need, our design team is equal to the task.
  6. Adaptability for Unique Items: If you have equipment with unusual shapes or delicate components, customized carrying cases can accommodate these unique characteristics much better than standard cases.
  7. Long-Term Durability: Custom cases are often built with higher quality materials and construction standards, which can lead to a longer lifespan compared to some mass-produced cases. Bel-Air cases are meant to last a lifetime and many of the cases from our early days are still going strong.
  8. Cost-Effective in the Long Run: While initially more expensive, the enhanced protection and durability of a custom case can save money by preventing damage to valuable equipment.
  9. Convenience Features: You can include additional features like wheels for easy transportation, custom handles, or specific types of locks and latches for security and ease of access.

Your Case Options

We offer two types of carrying cases – medium-duty cases and heavy-duty cases. Medium-duty carrying cases are ideal for sales kits and demo kits, as well as for equipment weighing less than 40 pounds. These cases also are popular as OEM cases, and, remember, we can add a molded-in logo, custom decals or engraved plates to your cases for a completely professional look.

Medium-duty cases are not meant to be shipped frequently as either luggage or cargo, so if you do want a carrying case that can handle frequent transport, we suggest that you opt for one of our heavy-duty carrying cases. For these cases, we form these cases on the tooling for our carrying cases, but we use the same materials and components that are utilized for our heavy-duty shipping cases.

In some circumstances, we might recommend that you opt for our heavy-duty shipping transport cases instead of a carrying case. These cases are ideal for larger and heavier items that need frequent transport. For many size configurations, we can add wheels and handles, to make it as easy as possible for you to move a case from place to place.

Of course, in addition to adding custom wheels and handles, we also can add locks and latches, including TSA-approved locks. And, as stated earlier, we can customize the color of the case, add decals and logos, and completely customize the interior foam.

We never just hand customers a case filled with cheap diced foam. We believe that a custom foam interior is essential to protect your equipment and if you are paying for a custom case, this should include a custom foam interior.

Back in the late 1960s, the world of plastics was just taking off and Bel-Air Cases was at the forefront of this new booming industry. Back in those days, life was drastically different. For instance, to get the word out about our custom carrying cases and shipping cases, we had to advertise the old-fashioned way – in newspapers and magazines, which might have looked something like this illustration to the right.

We set the industry standard in the early days, and we continue to set the standard in the new millennium. Every custom plastic case we build is meant to last a lifetime, protecting your equipment through countless treks by plane, train, ship, tank or whatever method of transport you need.

Bel-Air has been a trailblazer in the case industry for more than 50 years, and we are proud to continue leading the charge as makers of high-quality, durable cases that last for decades.
