Okay but...

We already have a Palram greenhouse and have been very pleased with it which is why we went for this shed over other ones. For the most part we're reasonably happy with it however, there are a couple of things that could do with improvement. Delivery was surprisingly quick although I would suggest someone strong be there to help as it's delivered as a 1 man delivery. It's rather heavy (52kg) and cumbersome (2.5m x 1.5m). Putting it together was a little awkward in parts. Until most of the walls are fixed in place it's all very flimsy so do not put it up in anything stronger than a breeze, you'll make the job so much harder. Some of the instructions are a little unclear so take time to fully understand how it goes together. Once completed the shed seems to be reasonably sturdy apart from the front/door panel. The side wall panels have lugs that slide into grooves on the frame, the two front panels either side of the door do not, being held in place by the frame lip. This means that they can be pushed in so security is a problem. The door hinges are screwed onto the front of the shed so anyone with a screwdriver can undo them and get to the shed's contents. Another security issue. Overall it's a reasonable shed. I don't think it's secure enough and a bit of a pain to put together but that's probably reflected in the price.

Difficult to erect

No way did this shed only need 2 people to erect it. When it arrived I contacted a local handy man/builder to ask him to erect it. Once he realised the type of shed he would not touch it as said the amount of time it would take him would cost more than the shed. Four friends are helping me. As they can only help on a Friday this is now the second week we have been working on it and we have the walls erected. It too the four of us to do this, three to hold the panels in place and one to put on the nuts/bolts/screws. The metal strips which attach to the top of the panels have been especially difficult and still don't look right.

Well admired.

Bought this for my static caravan. Everyone on the site has said how much they like it. Took three of us to get the side panels in place (2 to hold them in place whilst I fitted them together) but easy enough apart from that. Final assembly sturdy but light and needed bolted down to concrete slabs . Door really needs an additional couple of bolts instead of the flimsy ones supplied...but I knew it would, this is my second shed (have one at home now 2 years old and no problems with it. Good and dry.) Delivery was within 4 days but no warning...it just turned up. All in all, very happy with my purchase.

A maintenance free and fit for purpose shed

First of all I must say the packaging for a 6' x 8' was so small I thought they sent me a Wendy house ! But I was amazed that every component was neatly and strongly packaged into the one box. After reading the very clear instructions and laying out all the components I began to commence erection of the shed. I must say it was fairly straightforward and with a little help from my adult daughter we had the shed erected and in use within 3 hours. It was a bit flimsy to start until the strengheners were fitted making the structure quite rigid. All in all I am perfectly happy with my purchase and happy to recommend this product.

Questions and Answers (1)

Paul Botham Asked:

I've assembled this shed on a level surface but I'm having problems getting the doors to shut properly. Any suggestions?

We Replied:

Dear Paul Thank you for your question. A common problem with the doors not aligning or shutting correctly can be due to the nuts on the front panels being tightened too much during installation. You could try slackening all of the nuts on the front section, get the doors into the correct position and then re-tighten the nuts to see if this helps. Alternatively, if this still does not solve the problem then we would advise to contact the manufacturer's after-sales department, who will be able to offer technical advice. You can contact them online at: http://www.palramapplications.com/after-sales-service/ Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701.
