5 Star launches Flight Case Hire, a new service for 2017. Even the most professionally run company knows that the inevitable happens. You’ve specified a project and as it’s just about ready to be loaded, you find a shortfall of cases to pack the last few items of equipment. It’s too late to have anything built and the budget doesn’t really warrant purchasing new cases. Well, that’s where 5 Star’s Flight Case Hire can help!
Whether it’s a general-purpose road trunk, 19″ rack or a drawered production case, our Hire stock is the ideal choice for a short-term solution. We’ve started the Hire Stock with a selection of popular cases including two sizes of Eurotrucker road trunks, Cable trunk, three sizes of 19″ racks and two versions of Drawered Production Racks. Details of these can be found below. As every hire will be different, based on quantity, duration and location, our sales team will submit an individual quote upon request.

Eurotrucker – General Purpose Road Trunk
Probably the most popular road trunk available, the Eurotrucker has been manufactured by 5 Star for more than twenty years and will prove invaluable for equipment protection and handling. Our Hire stock has two versions, the full-size (1200) and the ‘Half’ Euro (600), both of which are built to Tour Grade specification featuring a stacking facility and PAL label dish.
Based on the Eurotrucker, this trunk features two sturdy vertical posts that can aid winding of large multicore and mains cables. The interior of this trunk is foam lined to protect the cables being housed. On each end of the trunk there are hinged access flaps that enable the bulk of the cable to be kept inside whilst keeping the lid closed.
For standard rack-mounted equipment, these 19″ Racks based on the popular ‘555’ range are available in three sizes – 4u, 8u and 16u. Body depth is 550mm nominal and internal door depth is 61mm. The 16u version has 4″ heavy-duty casters fitted to the base, whilst the 4u and 8u have stacking glides and can also be stacked on top of the 16u version. Front and rear, punched rackstrip is fitted as standard, as well as a PAL label dish.
Drawered Production Racks
Two styles of Drawered Production Racks are available from our hire stocks. ‘Style B’ features five pull-out drawers (2 x 60mm, 2 x 140mm and 1 x 200mm internal depth), with a hinged single door layout. ‘Style 3’ has the addition of a top hinged lid, as well as a hinged front door. The top lid features twin gas struts and a handy work-surface. Both styles include heavy-duty 4″ casters for easy handling and useful compartments in the front door for accessories.
