How do you remove a upvc door from frame on a porch

Need to remove for furniture delivery but cant get to screws. There is a nut located on each hinge, is this how the door is removed? Any bit of help is appreciated.

Hi, most uPVC doors work on a system that allows the door to be lifted off the hinges. With the door in a 90 degree opened angle, you should use something to lever the door up approx 50mm this will lift it from the hinge pin. To refit the door it's just the reverse of this. Good to have an extra pair of hands as the doors can be heavy if there is glass in them. Good this helps.
