Safari HP does a good frame with wood to ship doors. I got a pair from them in good shape. I also had UPS ding another pair that were sent just in cardboard boxes :facepalm
Had to have those repaired at a body shop.

Agreed - I bought from Stephen and the shipper destroyed and threw away one of the crates ... the door was dropped and damaged in the process. Stephen covered the new door and dealing with the shipper.

Can I mention that back then the price for 2 doors ... was $1350!

Are you thinking this one? Bottom of the page.

I actually had a factory box from a Puma rear door. The door bottom is suspended above the bottom of the box with a flap, and has end grain cardboard holding it up. Biggest thing in shipping these types of items is securing the item inside the packaging. So if it's hit, the package absorbs the impact, not the item. Think, "crumple zone".

No Scott, but that is pretty good too.
There was a guy who put the doors upright- on a pallet- in a triangle shape.
That way they(the evil shippers) cant stack anything on top of your doors!

In February, My Puma doors shipped from the UK wrapped standing up on a pallet. Once they got into customs off the boat in Montreal, they were required to be re-packaged as the wood the skid was made from was not pressure treated. Customs re-packaged them in a mailing crate which has served quite well for storage.

Bit of a PIA to deal with, but it gall got done.

Not scratch on them.

I posted the UPS guidelines I saw in my local UPS store in misc chat, after I read this.

Cheers

Virtually every single "door for sale" thread on D-90 is along the lines of: "New NTO doors for sale (with a small corner ding)"

My guess is that foam and cardboard is not sufficient to support a corner drop of a 50 lb door onto concrete. After a 3 foot drop, the corner of the door would pretty much go through foam like a hot knife through butter. I'm guessing it's the weight of the door that supplies the majority of the energy.

This wood thing is getting out of hand. I had a PT-6 engine in a Pratt & Whitney engine crate come back from SE Asia. I had to ship the crate back to Singapore for disposal because the skids where solid wood, not stacked plywood. We had to go to the port with another engine shipping crate to pick it up. They will not destroy anything anymore in the US, you have to ship it back out.

So moral to the story, only use plywood in your crate construction, to the extent you have to stack it to make thicker sections. Since plywood goes through a heat gluing process it is acceptable, but not solid wood of any kind. Unless... You have the magic wood certification stamp. Which you can get from agriculture, if you take a wood insect course or some other such lolly nonsense.
