The Case that Pays For
Our headline product is the Porter Case, a hard shell, lightweight (11 lbs), fully carry-on compliant case which doubles as a handtruck with a 3/8" solid axle and 4" ball bearing wheels. It saves $4 to $8 on every trip in avoided cart rentals. Plus, it is on the job as soon as you leave the gate!
The Porter Case is designed to carry up to 200 pounds of additional luggage in the manner of a handtruck! Unlike other rolling cases, the load is balanced over the wheels. You are not carrying the load, you are just pulling it. Even in the "tote" mode, the load is suspended below the handle for greater stability.
The case snaps together quickly and precisely and causes no delay when you pass through security. It fully complies with airline carry-on size requirements, and passes through security baffles without a problem. It is strong enough to be used as a seat when no chairs are available in the waiting area.
Its uses extend well beyond travel: Steve has used a Porter Case to move his entire office when there was no other handtruck available, and to move heavy computer monitors in and out of trade shows.
The Porter Case is exceptionally well engineered, and pays for itself in avoided airport pushcart rentals (and it goes where pushcarts aren't allowed, such as between widely separated airport gates). It offers excellent protection for delicate equipment, such as computer projectors, CPAP machines, cameras, etc. It allows you can take fragile and valuable items with you, rather than entrusting them to airline luggage handling.
Should you wish to order a Porter Case before we have our on-line credit card processing available, please proceed to the catalog. We have an excellent introductory offer.
The order submission page uses a secure server for the safety of your personal information. You will receive email confirmation of your order, and your credit card will not be charged until your order has shipped.
Please note if you wish to have your case shipped by second day air (always true for Alaska and Hawaii), the actual shipping charges will be reflected in the amount charged to your card. Please use the comment field on your order form to let us know of any special shipping requirements.
