How to transport my ukulele on a trip without bumping it?

Aloha Ukulelists!

We know that many of you just like us in Ukuleleria We love to carry our Ukulele everywhere, whether it is to play all the songs we know on the beach, or during the night bonfire, or why not? a coffee in the forest listening to the rain fall.

No matter your destination, if you are going to play or just want to take it to take some really cool photos, you always have to have our Ukulele well protected so that nothing happens to it and that is why we will answer the question that we all ask ourselves while packing.

How to transport my ukulele on a trip without bumping it?

The main thing is to know how are you going to travel? Will it be a long trip? Is it safe to send my Ukulele with the rest of the luggage? We are going to see the measures we can take in each of the situations.

Car

The most common thing is that we travel by car, generally when this is the case, they are not very long distances and we usually go a little more comfortable, heavy luggage such as suitcases goes in the trunk and we have a little more space for the crew. So in this case, a soft case that you can even take with you on the road is enough, as well as the ones that already included when you bought it, so you can hug your Ukulele so that you know you will have a good trip. Since if you decide to send it with the rest of the luggage, you can put it in its box or a cloth cover more resistant and always well accommodated so that it is not abused.

Bus

As more people go on the bus and you do not control the spaces, it is more advisable that you take it with you, you can buy one of the covers that have straps like backpack and take it with you without having to send it downstairs with the luggage of the rest of the people, the advantage is that it is a small instrument and easy to accommodate.

Plane

Now the good news comes ... everyone knows that airports do not have the best reputation when it comes to taking care of luggage, and once we see it on the scale when checking in we have to wait for it to appear in the healthy band and saved. That is why we must be very careful when sending them as checked baggage. We are fortunate that the Ukuleles have a perfect size that you can pass as carry-on luggage, get yourself a hard case or a hard case that gives maximum protection to your Ukulele, even taking it with you is better that it is well protected on a plane. There are airlines that give you the option of paying an extra to carry it up as an instrument in case you have a Ukulele that exceeds the measurements of hand luggage. The case is important because in any case they make you send it documented, you will have the certainty that it is well protected.

One last recommendation before closing the blog, whenever you travel it is good to loosen or detune the strings, the atmospheric pressure is not the same everywhere, and sometimes the tension will vary, which will cause the strings not to have a very good time, And that can affect your arm or the bridge ... better take 5 minutes to tune it when you arrive at your destination, your Ukulele will thank you and you will have nothing more to worry about.
