Palram polycarboate shed 6x8

What a great shed, just what I wanted. BUT would never have been able to build on my own or with my sons assistance despite being fairly technically proficient and very used to doing many diy jobs around the house. Was having a couple of builders erecting garden fencing who looked at instructions and said thought they would take about 1 hour to build and quoted a very reasonable cost to do this. Took them 4hours and 30 minutes! Probably would have taken my family at least 8 hours with lots of stress and angry words.

Great shed

Really pleased with purchase. Perfect size shed for our garden. Looks appealing and plenty of room for storage. Took husband a good 3-4 hours to put together and very solid. Only time will tell whether it withstands rainy and wet weather

Overall pretty good - excellent customer service

First the bad bit; our shed arrived minus some major parts. The good news is that the customer service was great, and the missing parts were despatched immediately. To be fair the missing parts were a manufacturer problem, as it was clear that the package was intact, so the supplier would have had no way of knowing the parts were missing. As others have said this is DEFINITELY a two person job, and do not attempt to install it if there's any wind blowing. The plastic parts are a heck of a lot tougher than they first look though, and once assembled with the aluminium supports the shed is robust enough. I've previously built both a timber and a metal shed, and would say that assembling this is on a par with a timber shed, but with much lighter components. The metal shed I assembled has literally hundreds of screws, nuts and bolts, and was tedious to put together. The captive bolt and nut system this shed uses makes it very easy to screw parts together, and I found that all the parts were very accurately sized, making it easy to get the shed dead square as long as the base is flat and square. The shaded light through the roof panels is a definite plus, and allows a surprising amount of light in. Clearly this is not as secure a shed as some other types, so if you live in a high crime area I'd perhaps look at something more sturdy, although having said that it's hard to find any shed that's robust enough to keep a determined thief out of. Overall, if you're looking for a maintenance free, lightweight, fairly easy to erect shed, then I'd recommend this model. The 8ft x 4ft version seems plenty large enough, and if you wanted to add some shelves, a bit of foresight when assembling the walls, and dropping some of the spare captive bolts down the slots in the wall extrusions would make fitting shelf brackets, or even a wall board for fitting tool hooks, easy.

Had to replace all screws with nuts and bolts, I can't believe sheds (at this price) still come with screws as standard

As previously stated, I can't believe that such a large shed arrived in a small, lightweight box. In addition, like other reviews have said, please don't attempt to build in windy conditions. Me and my 16 year old daughter managed to erect it in about 6 hours. It was very easy to assemble and came with clear instructions. My only gripe is that the shed came with screws and not nuts and bolts for security reasons.

Was worried at first flimsy and definately at least a two person job

Purchased this item to replace a rotting wooden one. Not easy to put together as sides are flimsy until put together as a whole. Sides are a little out and can't shut doors properly yet but will try to resolve

Do you sell a suitable base for your plastic sheds?

We Replied:

Dear Peter Thank you for your question. The Palram Skylight shed range comes complete with a floor and anchoring bolts ready to bolt the shed to a stable hard area. We do sell a range of pressure treated wooden base frame kits with metal spikes which allow you to install the base frame into the ground with the supplied spikes and then erect the shed on top. These can be found from following this link: 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.

David Allan. Asked:

This shed looks just the job! 1. How long realistically will it take to erect? 2. I live in the north west of England, how long after purchase would delivery be and would someone need to be here to sign for it? 3. Is the 6 X 8 Palram in stock?

We Replied:

Dear David Thank you for your questions. 1. We would recommend at least two people with an estimated installation time of around 4-5 hours, however this could be less or more depending on experience. You may see the instructions beforehand by viewing this link in your browser which may give you a better idea: 2. Delivery is normally within 5 working days to mainland England, and slightly longer to parts of Scotland (please see the delivery options on the product page to see where we deliver to if you are not within mainland England). And yes, the package(s) would need to be signed for when delivered. 3. At this time of writing, we do have this shed available and in stock. I hope that this information helps. Should you wish to contact us further or to place an order, please don't hesitate to reply to this answer via email or call us on 0121 355 7701. Thank you for using our online Q&A system. Kind regards Andy.

Ray Wigzell Asked:

The roof sections seem to slide in. I want to erect the shed in a corner with one side beside a garden 6ft fence how can I assemble the roof on that side?

We Replied:

Dear Ray Thank you for your question. We would normally recommend a 3ft space around each side of the shed in order to make installing it as easy as possible and to give you access to the roof to fix the panels. If you don't have this space, you could potentially attempt to install it in a nearby location, and then using the help of 4 people, lift the shed up from each corner and carry it to its desired location, before bolting it down to the ground. 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
