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. 

Fixing to the ground is straightforward using the metal spikes, making the procedure of securing and levelling it very simple indeed.

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

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.

Questions and Answers (3)

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.

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
