Me too. I don't have cases for anything but the snare & my cymbals, so I have a very useful system for transporting in my CX7- floor tom upside down, rack tom on top with protector in between in the rear passenger seat (with seatbelt around), cymbal bag & snare in rear driver seat, stands in the footspace, kick in drivers' side trunk (with a sheet over it), hi-hat stands, throne, pedals, etc. in the passenger side trunk. I put the throne seat between the kick and the other stuff back there so nothing will slide into it.I used to when I carried all the hardware in one case. Now the hi-hat stand just goes in the car in one piece.
