As long as the site is prepared, cleared of debris, trees etc and is level with sufficient room to build the shed then the standard installation charges listed on this site apply. You will also need a floor if there is not a suitable floor on site.
The assembly time differs depending on the size of your shed. Usually, your shed will be assembled in one day.
Not usually. Most of my equipment is battery operated. I will advise if we need power.
As I don’t need access to power, I’m able to assemble your shed without you being home. Obviously, if you have pets they would need to be contained. It is also a good idea to mark the ground with a couple of broom handles, or some spray paint so I know where you want the shed to go.
It can be dangerous to handle sheet metal in high winds, and my power tools are not too keen on rain. If the weather is bad I may have to postpone the assembly. I will discuss this with you if this happens.
Yes, I will remove all of the packaging.
Yes, I can. A delivery fee will apply. Please note there may be a travel charge for more remote areas, or a higher delivery fee for the larger sheds.
I want your shed to be perfect! So, I need shrubs, tree roots and other material to be removed so I can get your shed assembled as quickly as possible. Also if the ground or floor is not level it becomes difficult or impossible to fit the roof correctly and often doors will not open/close properly due to the walls being twisted out of shape by the floor.
Any building is only as good as the foundations it sits on. A shed built on un-level ground will never look as good as one on a prepared site. Concrete pads MUST be level AND square for the shed to fit. Timber floors are slightly more flexible in that posts can be added in extreme case to level the floor. There are a number of options. If the site is slightly un-level I may be able to pack under the floor to level it up. Otherwise, piling may be required.
Yes, sometimes if the build area is too tight I am unable to move around to get the roof or walls on. I need at least ½ metre (500mm or 50cm) around the shed to be able to assemble it.
Having your shed secured with a floor will ensure that the shed is anchored down and also keeps the shed sitting square which is important for the stability of the walls and roof. A floor is important for:
No, you don’t. However, I do recommend that you have a solid base for your shed – usually this will be a manufacturer’s floor kitset, a Heavy Duty wooden Floor, or a concrete base.
Yes you can. But, there may be an extra charge from us if your floor needs re-modelling to fit the shed correctly. In this case, I guarantee the shed assembly but not the floor assembly.
I can, but it is important that you check with me first. A site visit is required.
There are a number of options. You can buy a floor kitset when you purchase your shed, I can supply a Heavy Duty wooden floor, or it can go onto a new or existing concreted area. I prefer not to put sheds onto pallets or other unstable surfaces as often the shed strength and integrity suffers.
If you supply timber for your floor there is an extra charge for me to cut the timber to the correct length, as well as the floor assembly charge.
Your shed will be watertight if you get an appropriate floor that fits the shed. This could be timber or concrete.
Yes, I can. A charge will apply for this service. I only provide this service when I’m assembling a new shed, and the price is conditional on me viewing the shed and site.
Yes I do! I will come back to site if there is an issue with anything I have assembled. I do not guarantee my work if I assemble a shed without an appropriate floor and the shed blows away or leaks under the bottom.
Most optional extras require extra time to assemble. The price for the shed and floor assembly is the basic price as not every shed has optional extras.
Yes I can. I can arrange a site visit to come to and measure up and advise the best solution for your site, and point you in the right direction for an appropriate shed supplier.
No, I don’t. There are a number of great shed retailers out there that provide this service.
Please contact me to discuss. I support the sheds that are on my website, but there are some that I do not assemble due to quality issues.
Site visits are a service I provide, however, there is a cost associated with the travel to site.
Sheds under 10m2 do not need a permit as long as they are their own height away from boundaries and other buildings. If you are in doubt as to where to position your shed and have concerns then please check with your council. I take no responsibility for this, I build the shed where instructed and it is the responsibility of the shed owner to ensure the shed is legally sited.
