Case (or 2) for tuba with removable bell

I have a removable bell-front (recording?) tuba and am looking to better take care of it. It played very well, but is in need of some extensive maintenance that I plan on doing soon. Now I have it on a stand that was purchased at the same time as the tuba (mid to late 70s in the Detroit area), simply covered with a sheet. The sheet kind of works, when it doesn't freak out the cat.... I don't want a gig bag, I'm looking for the additional protection that a rigid case (or cases, one for the horn, one for the bell) would give the front-facing valves and the rest of the horn, especially if I need to ship the horn anywhere to accomplish repairs. I am at a loss as to where I should go for this. I am in North Dakota, if that makes a difference, but am willing to contact whoever can best fill this request.

It is a York Master (Bohm & Meinl) 4-valve front action BBb.

One thing at a time: for now all I am looking for is a case or two (if I get really lucky, a third case for an upright bell). I will work on the shop later.

Recommendations, please? :?:
