I need to to ship my URB from Washington D.C. to California soon. I'd rather not spend thousands on a trunk. I looked into renting one, but then I came across this item at Gollihur, a hard case for URB that only costs $815. By my calculations buying this case might actually be cheaper than renting a pro quality travel trunk. Anyone have experience or thoughts on this item? Lightweight Travel Hard-side CASE for 3/4 size Upright Bass at Gollihur Music - Double Bass, Upright Bass, String Bass Specialists I'm at this point thinking I'd do ground shipping because I'm hearing airlines can give you a lot of headaches with this kind of thing. I imagine I'd probably only need this for the one use, so I'm not too worried whether it will last a lifetime or not. Further info for those interested: my upright bass cost $6000 new, so not a cheapie but not high-end either.
