Shed as described, does need two people to erect. Everything provided other than tools.Good value for money.

Where to start? I purchased a rather expensive 14x8 shed with log store with the intent for it to replace a dilapidated garage. The BSD package included installation and had a delivery time of 3-4 weeks. Unfortunately due to a series of mishaps it took 7 weeks and 5 attempts to get the shed installed. This incurred me significant time off work and delay costs to further building work.
My builder created a concrete base to the dimensions given but when the third party fitters (Malvern Collection) arrived with the deconstructed shed to install it they told me that the base was 3" too small. We all checked the base to ensure it matched the stated dimensions and all agreed it did. Unclear where the issue originated the fitter stored the shed parts in my garden for a 'short period' whilst the issue was resolved. The days turned into weeks as BSD and the third party discussed where the fault lay; whilst during this time I was left with a garden full of spare parts and no shed. Finally, BSD confirmed that whilst the dimensions were correct they understood that I could only proceed with the information given to me by the experienced fitter and that i should send them the invoice for the builder who was required to extend the base to match the fitters comments.
This was duly done and a new date was established to fit the shed to the new base. Unfortunately the next set of fitters then arrived only to tell me that the wooden base of the shed had warped over the proceeding 2 weeks leaning up against the fence and they could not install the shed. Another wasted day off work.
Yet another call to BSD and Malvern resulted in a new base ordered and yet another install date. When this set of fitters arrived they informed me that several pieces of the roof slates (an expensive optional extra) were broken, the double door lock was faulty and numerous other pieces of the structure had been heavily stained by the trees they were placed under by the previous fitters.
The fitters (who I must say were excellent at calming me down and organising new parts) returned the following day to finally complete the install.
So why am i giving 1 star? Well - despite keeping BSD constantly informed of the situation, along with photographic evidence, they have now stated that they accept no responsibility for the delays, errors or incurred costs - despite earlier clear indications to the contrary. Apparently, the shed became my responsibility when it was dumped in my garden and not when i actually signed for it upon completion of the install!
I am now several weeks behind schedule of larger renovation works to my garden, i have been forced to take several days off work and I am significantly out of pocket in terms of builders costs - not to mention the amount of time i have had to assign to this debacle.
Avoid this company at all costs ..............

Recently bought a Lumley summerhouse for our Mum, and I have to say that she is thrilled with it. The size is good, 7’x5’.
And the general quality of the manufacture is ok. Everything required for the assembly is there and there were no real issues with the build. Delivery was good, despite various text messages saying the delivery was going to be delayed. It was actually delivered on time.
Just a couple of issues. I felt the floor threshold was a bit weak and needed cross pieces in, and the front overhanging roof needed extra supports behind the fascia.
The door catch was an issue, as it is not designed for this type of door, and there is not enough space to put the holding bracket, but these are small issues, which were easily resolved.just a shame that I drilled holes in the door, when I didn’t need to, as I bought a different door handle.which then had to be wood filled. Overall though, I would say that the finish is good and is easily assembled the value is very good and when painted will last a good few years. So generally, a happy customer.

I am very happy with my shed and the service I received. My shed was delivered on the day I wanted in the time slot I was advised of. When I noticed a slight problem a replacement component was sent promptly and without question.

An absolutely great shed and very good value for money. The shed arrived on time and was light enough to be moved by myself. the building instructions were very straight forward and the shed was built quickly with no problems. I would definitely recommend this shed for bike storage.

Every time we have bought from BuyShedsDirect we have never been disappointed. The online site is easy and convenient to use and we have found the costs are very comparable, especially as the products are of a high standard. Delivery is excellent, being on time and the men are always happy to help.

Review by MariJoxe2 months ago
Delivered very quick but was shocked how flimsy the plastic shed was
even thought about sending it back and get a wooden one, but the summer house I purchased last year had to make new doors because they were warped. My experience has not been a great one on the products.
But maybe once the shed has been erected could be a lot sturdier than the first impression

I found the quality of the wood and the way some of the panels were put together was a bit sub standard but I altered some of the panels and now it looks great. Delivery was very good.

Purchased a barn style shed that I erected myself. All in all a nice building but a tad difficult to erect both ends as they are fairly flimsy until fixed to the sides and the roof put on. A nice spacious feeling inside and plenty of room to add a shelf at the eaves height inside so that the roof space can be utilised. The instructions were fairly good for the most part but fitting the roof was difficult to work out from the diagrams. Lots of screws supplied which was great. The pre delivery build was generally good although there were a few proud "nails" that had to be hammered down so as to not cause a problem with the felt. I would have prefered that the warning to "remove the protective blocks of wood used for transportation" purposes were right at the start and in bold letters rather than the way it is at present. Spent nearly 30 minutes working out that they had to be removed. My fault as it does state it but I missed it when reading the instructions. Would I buy the shed again? Yes. Good value for money. Quick and helpful delivery and appears good quality. Thanks
