You need it, we craft it.

No matter how obscure your needs may be, Dinosaur Cases guarantees we can build a case to fit your specifications. Every case we build is custom, which means your case is specifically designed to meet your unique requirements. We thrive on innovation and love to create custom case designs to meet your weight, transportation, protection and layout needs. We also specialize in case refitting, custom case fabrications and custom case parts.

From our first contact, to the delivery of your custom case, we strive to give you the best possible service to address all of your custom case creation needs. We pride ourselves on creating high quality, protective custom cases that you can depend on. When you contact us we will find out exactly how we can design the perfect case that matches your vision. We use detailed measurements of your equipment/objects to be cased, get your approval on all design elements, construct the case, and do a final fitting, with adjustments as required. To create your custom case, we use mahogany plywood from sustainable sources, custom plastics, aluminum extrusions (our own design), custom hardware, custom foam inserts and custom foam interiors.
