    How bad do you want it off? I'm sure we can make arrangements. Actually, I wouldn't be surprised, as the hinges are not part of the security; they may well have removable pins. I'd have to see it, though. I'd still wonder why.

    If you are just trying to remove the door for transportation, which I've done MANY times, it could be relatively easy.

    If you have external hinges, simply(ha, ha) open the door past 90 degrees, then lift straight up off the hinges.

    Do NOT try this alone!

    Even if you can lift the door by yourself, it will be extremely awkward and heavy. You will want help to remove it, or at least someone to call 911 if you drop it on yourself.

    You'll need at LEAST one extra pair of hands to reset the door too. Lifting it is bad enough, but trying to lift and align the hinges at the same time is really hard by yourself.

    I have a safe to move too. Are you volunteering? it only needs to go 30 miles north and down into the basement!
    If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

    I hear a car jack can be a huge help when lifting a safe door off its hinges..
    You would still want a couple of guys to help though.

    Yeah, might consider moving it myself if the door comes off. I have moved it twice without removing the door, but this move is different. I would have to lighten it in some way.

    My mother in law has a safe she needed the combo lock changed on..she called a local company and they told her just remove the door and bring it in. I thought this to be a little strange so I contacted the company and they told me that under no circumstances should the door be removed...they say that it can affect the alignment due to the weight. That being said as you can see from above posts that it can be done...I just dont think I would do it myself.

    If it's a quality made safe it will NOT distort during movement. I have removed the doors on several for moving, with no adverse affects.

    I'm up for most ANYTHING, if the price is right.
