Here is some information on how
I construct my shipping cases
and ship my doors

I design the case to fit the door(s), jambs and hardware

I lay out all the pieces to fit tightly and well padded

We start out by cutting strips of 1" and 1-1/2" styrofoam

Then we wrap and seal each door in 4 mil plastic

Here I set a "bed, placed the jambs on the bottom ........

..... then laid in the first door

.... then added a layer of 1-1/2" foam ........

........ and then laid in the second door.

I designed the case to accept the hardware and screws on the end.

The outer layer of foam is adhered to the sealed door

Then the case is closed up and screwed together .... every 6"

Lastly ... we add feet for a fork lift and transportation

We build our cases .......
to make the trip

Then we sneak it out of the shop.
Everything around here ...... is a custom fit.

and slide ithe case out the "loading ramp" and onto my trailer

It's sprinkling today, so we keep the case covered

I live about 7 miles from the Pacific Coast, on the edge of a 30000 acre Redwood state forest

I ship through Al Lewis trucking who transfers my doors to TransGroup trucking in South San Francisco and from there ......
the world !!

Now I wait for the trucking company to call and I'll drive down to Hwy. 1

........... and we load 'er up ....... and off go the doors to Hawaii !!
