Do "have sth done" and "get sth done" have the same meaning?
Ex: I'll have Max wash the car ~ I'll get Max to wash the car.
=> I won't wash the car; I'll will tell Max to do it.
Ex: I'll get the car washed.
=> Either I will wash the car or I will have someone else do it.

Have + n + pp = get + n + pp
these two forms have the same meaning, and can be used in any form.
I am painting the door ( iam doing it myself)
I am having/getting the door painted ( i ask someone else to do it for me)
I have painted the door ( i have done it myself)
I have had/got the door painted ( i have asked someone else to do it)
