On some occasions, the driver will split the package to assist with the manoeuvring of the item. Once you are happy, we will ask you to check the condition of the goods and sign for the delivery. Assistance with unloading may be required.

Decent enough

A decent enough shed that should do the job nicely. Instructions were quite poor as were the screws that came with the shed (the use of stronger, better quality screws would save hassle in the long term i'd wager, so I used them instead). Delivery took an awfully long time but, understandable given the current circumstances. The quality of the wood is of a relatively reasonable standard, given the price. The panels are a bit on the thin side but once it's all screwed in to place it seems solid enough. The floor is good, thick and looks as though it could bear a fair amount of weight. It is also boarded which is a nice touch (as even some more expensive sheds have cheap sheet board flooring.) The felt provided seems alright, however they didn't quite provide enough as I just managed to cover the roof and no more. I thought this was a bit stingy of them as another couple of metres would have sufficed. Oh well. There are no leaks or big draughts though I put this down more to liberal use of good quality screws for a strong, snug construction and some silicone to cover gaps between panels and to fill some knots (there's not loads but there are a few) All in all then an alright shed that should suffice for my small garden. I've read some reviews on other sites and you would think some people ordered the bubonic plague. Sure the quality is hardly top end but I think this is probably as good as you will get for a 6' x 4' prefab shed without buying loads of materials and hiring a carpenter. It's honestly not bad at all and as long as it stays dry inside and keeps it's shape, then that's fine. Lastly, this review was written after storm Ellis hit my area (60 mph wind and heavy rain) the shed didn't budge, is still in good nick and is as dry as a bone inside. If I can get ten year of use from this shed (which I think I probably will) then i'd consider it a good purchase indeed.

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
