Flight Case Hire

Case Hire - flexible terms from UK's flight case manufacturers

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 flight 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 flight cases.  Well, that’s where 5 Star’s 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 flight cases including two sizes of Eurotrucker road trunks, Cable trunk, three sizes of 19″ racks and two versions of Drawered Production Racks, which are all fitted with PAL label dishes. 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. View or download the Case Hire Leaflet and pricing by clicking here, or the image on the right.

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 Case Hire stock has two versions, the full-size (1200) and the ‘Half’ Euro (600), both of which are built to Super Tour Grade specification featuring a stacking facility and PAL label dish.

Removable trays and dividers are also available, which are a handy option for keeping all those smaller accessories in one place.

Wardrobe Trunk

Wardrobe trunk


Wardrobe Trunk is an ideal solution for transporting and even displaying garments and  accessories including workwear, sportswear and motorsport race suits.  Featuring a hinged double-body design with four 400mm deep drawers for accessories and two hanging rails.

Vent dishes are fitted to ensure good airflow in the flight case when in transit.  Eight casters make easy handling.  A PAL dish is also included, so that hire information can be applied to tour labels (label not included).

Flit-Crate from 5 Star…a new take on the traditional Tea Chest

5 Star Cases, UK's specialist flight case manufacturers has designed this useful crate to make moving house or company easier. For many years, the traditional tea chest was the choice for packing small and fragile items. The modern version of the tea chest is Flit-Crate, a durable, reusable container manufactured from high-quality plywood, finished in a hard-wearing polyurea coating.

These crates are stackable and include rubber feet which help prevent damage to wooden and tiled floors. A recessed dish is fitted to the lid, allowing for placement of packing lists and delivery details. Grab handles on all four sides aid handling and once loaded, the lid can be secured using zip-ties if required.

The crate’s rectangular footprint allows for loading into both smaller vans and larger trucks and can be oriented for the best fit. Internal volume is 6.35 cu.ft or 179 litres.  Internal dimensions: 582mm (L) x 482mm (W) x 641mm (H)*. External dimensions are shown below*.

Flit-Crates will be a valuable aid for removal firms, van-rental companies and general logistics organisations that require a reusable, durable and professional container.
