Great little shed

Shed arrived in delivery slot ands offloaded by friendly driver. Instructions clear and we put it up in an afternoon all went well. Great little shed and great value, perhaps not the most robust of sheds but then you get what you pay for.

My little Garden Shed

Delivered on time, Just! Men were great but under time pressure, unusual that they had another shed delivery in our road? Content was all there not sure that £20 for less wood and only a preformed thin plastic to replace it was good value. 25% 0ff one side was a much darker rougher wood and stood out, I had to trim roof pieces a bit to fit, yes base was square! but it is waterproof and is doing a job. Overall Ok and works fine

Seems ok for the money

Only had the shed a couple of weeks. It seems ok at the moment. It is not the best shed I have had, but you get what you pay for. Not sure the pressure treatment will last the 15 years they guarantee. The delivery was on time & the fitters were on time & tidied up after they left. Time will tell.

Perfect Shed

I would just like to say thank you for the excellent service your organization provided today in delivering the shed to my son's allotment in Plymouth. From the initial enquiry to the final delivery and product I could not fault your setup. Both GardenSite and Forest Garden telephone were very polite. The delivery driver kept us informed an hour prior to delivery and arrived at the expected time. All-in-all a very efficient and professional staff who displayed some wonderful reassuring customer support and once again many thanks. Yours faithfully
