Q. Can I have separate storage areas in my case?

Q. What if I don’t know what I need?

A. We are experts – we are happy to talk to you about what you need the case for and work with you to build a case that will be exactly what you’re looking for.

Q. Can I buy hardware from you as well?

A. We are happy to refer you to Case Ware, a division of Dinosaur Cases International. They specialize in the custom manufacturing and fabrication of equipment and parts. They also ship world wide. Find out more at case-ware.com

Q. I just submitted the online form, now what?

A. We will contact you ASAP, and found out more about your item to be cased, what you will be using your case for, and what your vision is.

Q. How are you going to build my case?

A. We will first discuss with you your vision, requirements and specifications. Then we will get detailed measurements of your equipment or object to be cased. You will then approve our design, and we will get to constructing the case. Last but not least, we will do a final fitting, with adjustments if necessary.

Q. Will I have approval every step of the way?

A. Absolutely! We pride ourselves on making sure you are 100% satisfied – we are happy to include you in every step to ensure your case is exactly what you want.

Q. What kind of materials do you use in building your cases?

A. We use mahogany plywood from sustainable sources, custom plastics, aluminum extrusion (our own design), and custom hardware and custom foam.

Q. How can you guarantee my item will fit into my new case?

A. We will make sure we have detailed measurements of your equipment or object to be cased. If possible, we will measure and fit your item physically in our warehouse. We are also happy to make adjustments as required.

Q. What is the strangest request you have ever received?

A. The more obscure, the better! We love to innovate. To date the most interesting items we have been asked to case are a full size dinosaur skeleton (we know, how appropriate), a case for an urn, and exercise equipment for a touring rock musician. We are happy for you to challenge us!

Q. Why the name ‘Dinosaur Cases’?

A. Besides the fact that Dinosaurs are awesome, we wanted a brand that represented armoured protection, durability and longevity.
