    I found this on the side of the road empty. Im trying to figure out what to use it for. Maybe a mobile toolbox since it has foam. Or use it to put my camping supplies in. Any ideas?uploadfromtaptalk1308254894538.jpguploadfromtaptalk1308254906682.jpg

    I'd be willing to bet that it was previously used for a projector...was it found on a trash pile or just out on the side of the road like it fell off a truck?

    Typically cases like that run pretty high $ and if it wasn't on a trash pile and it has any sort of identifying info on those labels...the owner would probably like to know where their case is

    We use those cases for shipping very high $$ and fragile aircraft parts and other equipment like computer servers and stuff like that. Those are very very expensive and very nice shipping containers. Nice find. Oh ya that case usually costs about $800.

    Or maybe it was stolen, contents removed, and then the case was ditched. I'd bet the owner might like it back also.

    Trying to find the rightful owner is the best and only thing to do right now. Check with the local authorities where you found it and ask if a report has been made.

    How many people have a police record stating that they just "found it"?

    As a FedEx guy, and as said above...those things are worth a pretty penny just as the case alone. Pull out the foam and see if there is any other identifying markings under.

    You didn't own it up to this point, you wouldn't of bought it to have so give it a shot trying to return it. If no one claims it after your efforts have been exhausted, then Happy New Case Day to you.

    You were lucky it wasn't pressurized when you cracked it open.

    They have small valves on them to equalize the pressure.

    OP...i want to be clear...i'm not trying to give you a hard time...just understand that these cases are, obviously, expensive and typically transport very high dollar items

    it is unlikely that the case was just thrown out with yesterday's trash

    Made some phone calls to some folks I know in the supply department on base. Turns out they were transporting a truckload of these from a sister base and lost a couple along the way. They have been sitting out in the sun for quite some time that's why all the labels are faded. Anyway, they are accounted for and I'm gonna take it back on my way to work today.:(
