Hi, thanks for visiting! If you need to ship your VW doors, you'll be happy to know that there are plenty of options available for you. Large, heavy items such as van doors from a VW are not easy to move or ship, which means you'll need to consult a professional moving company to assist you with the move. 

However, if you're only looking to ship the vehicle doors and not the entire vehicle, most moving companies will not take it because it may fall below their minimum weight requirements for a moving load and you won't be able to consult an auto transport company either. If that's the case, you'll find that hiring small movers or even specialty movers who are experienced in transporting large items such as these, will be your best option under these circumstances.

Benefits of hiring special movers
  • They have the experience and expertise necessary to transport your belongings safely and securely. While you may not have the moving skills that are needed to transport an item as big and as heavy as two large van doors, special movers certainly do and can take the proper measures to ensure that your items are moved safely and securely and are not damaged during the move. Trying to handle such a move without the help of professional movers can result in damage or injury. 
  • You'll save yourself money and time. In the long run, the amount of time and money you'll likely spend trying to ship your doors without professional movers will be less than what you'd end up paying for special movers to move your items for you. 
Preparing your doors for the move

To prepare your doors to be shipped, you should first have them carefully wrapped in moving blankets or moving pads to ensure that they won't sustain any damage while they are being shipped. You don't want to receive your doors with scratches and dings in the paint and a broken window, so it's important that the doors are wrapped securely prior to the move and held in place with a few layers of packing tape for extra protection.
