Shipping Your Door Order
We are aiming to make the shipping/delivery process as hassle-free as possible for our customers. Pre-hung door systems are packed in plywood crates, using bubble wrap and/or styrofoam as protective packaging material.
We provide curbside residential deliveries with a liftgate service in most cases. However, depending on the door size, liftgate may not be available at the time of delivery. This applies to all crates with the length exceeding certain size (usually 90” but may vary and this length restriction is in a sole discretion of the carrier). If this is the case, the crate will not fit on a liftgate platform and our freight broker will not be able to book a liftgate service at the time of booking the shipment.
In case we cannot book a liftgate due to size limitation, and the carrier is unable to provide it, the consignee needs to arrange manpower to help unload the door from the truck at his/her expense.
Attention US customers: before we can ship an entry door to your US destination we will contact you to request either your SSN or Tax ID so our customs broker can do customs clearance for the shipment.
It is a US government requirement that consignees of freight shipments must providing SSN/Tax ID. You can read more about it here Importers - Social security number / Tax Identification Number / IRS Number / Importer Number requested by overseas supplier
If you do not wish to disclose SSN or Tax id to Doorshoppers.com directly, you will have to contact our customs broker. Please, inquire about our customs broker’s contact info.
Important: no door order can be shipped until either we or our customs broker has either your SSN or Tax ID on file.

Accepting the Shipment
As a consignee you are responsible for a full and thorough inspection of the crate BEFORE signing the POD (Proof of Delivery) document in the driver's presence.
If you find any damage and still decide to accept the freight, it must be very clearly stated in writing on the POD that there is damage. There is no such thing as too much detail.
DO NOT SIGN for a shipment that is damaged without noting the damage.
Important: If the crate is intact, the POD is signed clear, and the driver leaves, you MUST open the crate and inspect the door as soon as possible. If you discover any damage of the door inside, you need to take high resolution pictures and report the damage to both Doorshoppers.com and the carrier within 24 hrs from delivery.
Can I refuse an order if it is damaged?
You have a right to refuse a damaged crate if it has major and visible damage. In this case, do not sign for it, do not accept it. The crate will then be returned to Doorshoppers.com.
Note any damage on the delivery receipt when refusing the freight.
Please take good quality pictures of the damage.
Obtain or make a copy of the delivery receipt.
