Making sure that the shed you have just purchased is level and, so that air can circulate, does not rest directly on the ground, should be a prime consideration.

The base is made from high-quality softwood that has been pressure treated, so you needn't worry about rot as the wood has a 15-year anti-rot guarantee. 

Remember that your shed is a long term investment, providing strong foundations will pay dividends in terms of a long and useful life. 

This Forest product is pressure treated and carries a 15-year guarantee against rot. This means it will never require any further treatment - saving time and money and helping the environment.

Forest's entire product range is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council, every product carries the FSC logo, ensuring that timber comes from properly managed forests and controlled sources.

Vehicles We Use
For the majority of cases, items will be delivered on larger lorries which can get to most places. Typically they are a 7.5-ton lorry which is about the size of a dustbin lorry, this will depend on the item that is being delivered and should you have any concerns with restricted access to your property we ask you to contact us prior to placing an order.

Unloading Of Your Delivery
Due to the nature of this product, delivery will be made to the front of the property to the nearest location. Our drivers will not carry these items inside your home or back garden. When the item is delivered on a pallet, the pallet and packaging are non-returnable and the goods can only be maneuvered on a flat and level surface (i.e. not a gravel driveway) by a pallet truck. On some occasions, the driver will split the package to assist with the maneuvering 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.

Very good shed base

For what it is, some spikes and some planks of wood, it is quite good. Would be nice if I could just buy the spikes and then some wood to cut to the length I need, but this did the trick. It matched the shed I bought in dimensions perfectly.

Excellent product

Good quality shed base at cheapest price around. Unfortunately cost another £50 to cover it completely with decking to support the flimsy floor of my new plastic shed! Much easier, quicker and cheaper than using flagstones or concrete base!

cheapest I could find and fast delivery

Marked down 1 on quality only because it is slightly smaller that 8x6 so my ancient shed that is to be moved onto it needs extra batons screwed to the outside of the completed frame for better support.

Megan Davies Asked:

Why is the shed base smaller than the shed's dimensions?

We Replied:

Dear Megan Thank you for your question. The base has smaller dimensions because the shed's maximum measurements include the overhanging roof. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Lauren Bilboe

Aaron Summers Asked:

What is the length of the spikes as I have trees close by and am worried about roots stopping the spikes from going to the full depth?

We Replied:

Dear Aaron Thank you for your question. The metal spikes are 38cm (15ins) in length. I hope that this information helps. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Andy

stephen davies Asked:

In the video it looks as though one side of the timber base is actually touching the ground (you can see this when the chap is hitting in the first spike). Is this base designed to be raised off or located on the ground?

We Replied:

Dear Stephen Thank you for your question. Ideally, the base spikes are inserted into the ground so the frame itself rests on the surface of the ground. This is natural for a flat surface however, if the ground is slightly bumpy this may result in a spike being visible, in which case we would recommend some support underneath the visible spike to keep the base as flat as possible. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Lauren
