Urgent Storage Cupboard Door Problem
I have a large storage cupboard room outside my apartment, which I have stupidly filled with too many suitcases and boxes. This morning, as I put the Vacuum cleaner back, I dislodged a suitcase which fell against the door.

The door opens into the cupboard and is now jammed shut. I've tried everything to open it but it just won't budge.

What are my options here?

Any advice would be gratefully received.

poke a thin rod or stick through the crack and try to lift the suitcase away from the door.

If you have another door, fitted with the same kind of hinges, post some photos of the hinges, with the door open. You might have to cut them. It is not very destructive as new hinges can easily be screwed on.

Is there a gap to see under the door so you can see the position of the case and maybe shift it with a thin bit of wood or anything?

Can you see the door hinges? If you can't see the screws to undo, you might be able to knock the pins out. If not, you will have to do what piglet has said and saw through the hinges.
