Shipping Doors

Fixin to send a set of full steel doors. What is the best way to package these things up to prevent damage? I'm thinking a few blankets wrapped around them, styrofoam on the edges, wrapped in Uhaul moving blankets and then wrapped in cardboard.
What do you think?

How are you shipping them? Maybe make a crate out of a couple pallets and use a blanket on each? Shrink wrap around it to help keep things from snagging the blankets?

Maybe ask the shipper how they prefer them packed.

I bought my hard doors from a guy in NY. I'm in AZ. He made a crate of sorts out of wood, maybe pallets. He used bubble wrap between the doors, insides facing each other, then wrapped them together with plastic wrap. Surrounded the doors with cardboard wrapped with packing tape and inserted into the wooden crate. Wrapped the crate with more plastic wrap. It took me about 30 mins. to unwrap everything but the doors were in great shape. They were shipped by UPS.

I would rather have a tool I don't need, than need a tool I don't have.

Another vote for some sort wood crate. Cardboard, even wrapped in moving blankets is denting waiting to happen.
