Have the seller wrap them and put them on a Skid.. If you want you can have them sent to my office.. and I can likely get you good rates on the LTL Freight.

Dez This is a Skid.. used to ship product via freight.. forklift will pick it up I understand the doors are light but bulky product many times is handled better on a skid.

Bike boxes work great, you can ship UPS or fedex.
