Responsibility of the Distributor, Pre-Hanger, Retailer
1. Visually inspect each door prior to delivery and do not ship any door that appears to contain a manufacturing defect.
2. Store in dry, well ventilated building.
3. Avoid abuse in handling.
4. Deliver in clean trucks under cover in wet weather.
5. Deliver doors to job site after building has been closed in and plaster, dry wall, and concrete are dry.
6. Repair slight imperfections prior to pre-hanging and/or delivery.

I would guess that it is the person who fits the doors initially, so that the client can then suggest modifications. The pre-hanger would be responsible for getting the door to the exact fit, sorting out hinges etc.

Check out Google Pre-hanger...there are about 20 sites, that might give you some ideas.
