If this is by Forest Garden i wouldnt touch it with a flammin barge pole.

Ordered a 7x5 shed for £299 from them April 5th, took them until today to deliver by courier and its falling apart. Utter crap. Its being sent back at their cost. The wooden panels are snapped or split on most of them, the frame is coming away from each other and the doors havent even been put together properly.

Crap.

Ive stayed neutral as its not fair to tarnish a deal on one customers bad experience,

Wowsers...good price for a decent looking shed. Thanks

No, it's made by a company beginning with w - can't remember who, maybe walton's?

Anyway even if it's as crap as the one you had - I'm not going to grumble for £75 delivered.

True BUT.. this is the one i bought Timberdale 7x5

This is called the Timberdale but its made by Forest Garden Limited. Not sure if The Walton is going to be made by them as its just a brand name. I hope not lol.

Me too!

But I ordered this one a week or so ago for £200 (£100 with clubcard) and called them today to see when it was being delivered. They said "it's coming straight from Walton's and they'll call you to arrange delivery".

Hopefully, it'll be better than your experience...fingers crossed!!

If not, I may keep it for £75 anyway and repair it, or send it back for a replacement. Even if it's cheap it has to be fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality (SOGA 1979).

Well done for posting...but I must say, whats the point of going to the hassle of ordering it, erecting it, removing your old shed if its a heap of s*it? I would not pay £7.60 let alone £76 if its that bad ! You want your shed to be sound and solid !

I wouldn't erect it if it was crap. I'd send it back for another one, and another - or just get a refund if they're not good enough. I wouldn't take mine down until I was happy anyway.

This is probably made by a different manufacturer and Lavondys may just have had a particularly bad one.

It would not be hard to make it "safe and sound" anyway, if need be.

i got me a shed off north street sheds in birmingham, 12ftx12ft made to my spec, used 2x3 timbers and 22mm cladding...deliverd and put together in preston for 750 quid

i changed the glass for some laminate stuff and put 2000 guage visqueen on the roof as the felt blew off and its a solid structure, i use it for a workshop, and because every man should have a shed/garage to hide in

Waltons sheds are just as bad as Forest. Framing is tile battern. They are like the garden center sheds that wobble 4 inches either way when the wind blows. Phaaa

Wow, that's a big shed! Sounds great for the money, especially delivered and put up, but I've only go enough space (and money) for this size!!

Wish I could hide in it too though!
#15
Got it about a year ago.
Now the roof covering started to break down, was really fragile when putting up and doesn't seem very secure but if you're after something to cover your stuff from the rain this will about do it.
BTW The "Wood" is only about 0.5 to 2 cm thick.

i used to work at the argos direct warehouse in stafford years ago and their sheds were made by waltons, ok we hgad a fair few come back due to transit damage etc but can imagine it was only a few percent compared to what was sold.
sheds a shed really.
#17
where did the was £250 come from, i can only see £190 unless it was originally £250 in the catalogue?
#18
7.2 overall scores not based though on over 100 reviews, like argos though if i see the same negative comments about the same thing or fault i tend to stay away.

Unfortunately agree.
Got a friend working at Forest Garden and he said that the quality is ....
He show me some photos.
75% should go for the scrap, not to the shops.
Quantity and not quality.
Sorry, for your lost time and money but he is not the quality check man.

But the deal here hopefully is from a different manufacturer.

It says at the bottom of the page somewhere. Something like "was £250, then £200, now £146".

Never worth £250 or even £200 but it's the clubcard vouchers that make it good value for me.

Edit: it says was £250, then £200, then £198, now £146 under the add to basket.

I have one I doubt if it will last for 5 years ,as has been said its of a very light flimsy construction.
#22
I would stay away from all cheap sheds, a good wind will rip this thing apart and the wood likes to split rather fast. If you do chose to buy one I recommend you build it next to a wall or in a corner just to be safe.
#23
Hmmm looks a good price but would love to know a little more about the quality! I would be putting it in a corner with 6ft fences around the side and back. Have to have a think!!
#24
You are better to build your own shed using decent timber. I helped my brother build his and its nothing like this cheap tat, and it was built for a lot less than that price.

Very true ...
#28
With the clubcard vouchers, this is an excellent deal.

I bought an identical shed from http://www.gardenbuildingsdirect.co.uk 2 years ago for about £220.
The quality was far below what i expected, but i broke up some old wooden pallets to use the timber to give added extra strength to the doors, doorframe and windowframes, and now its fairly secure.

Really? Out of curiosity, I'd be interested to hear how much timber and roofing felt would cost to build a 6 x 8 shed.

Any carpenters / joiners about to give an estimate?

Thanks

Thanks lavondys, I was considering ordering one of the Forest Premier Range but could only find mostly negative reviews. You have helped me make my mind up. Going to source a decent quality shed from a local supplier...or build my own.
#31
I just built a 1m square goose house using good timbers and the timber cost alone was £100 so you have no chance of building an 8x6 for anything less than £250
#32
Great first deal, got the 6x4 about the same time last year, good quality for the price.
#33
ordered. use £25 clubcard exhange paid £101 in total

gonna put it at the corner anyway so should be good for temporary measure until i move in a year or two x
#34
I got the 6x4 in Jun 2009 for about £125 but its crap would not recommend. I supose you get what you pay for but its poorly made with very thin wood and is not very stable at all. A number of pannels were delevered and had to be replaced (give them their due this was done quickly and efficiently without question) If you push lighly near the top of the shed it moves a couple of inches without any effort. I now have to do this just so the bolt aligns so I can lock the door. Next one I will make myself with decent materials.

I've heard this sort of thing a lot. These cheap sheds need reinforced if they are going to last at all.

A few years ago when I got my 12x6, I went to a local supplier where I could see the quality. A decent built shed looks so much better than a cheap one.

It should be pretty obvious how to strengthen it once you've put it up. I mentioned the weak areas, you just need to screw additional timber in the appropriate places to brace the existing wood.

I also added a ton of extra screws as there was nowhere near enough included and also used an old kitchen worktop as a workbench along the back wall. This really added alot of rigidity, and mine is now rock solid. The only weak point on mine now is the roof, which I will replace within a couple of years.

Bought for £71 after voucher exchange. Will hopefully suffice as a temporary store for a couple of years while I sort out my garden. Cheers OP! :)

Good stuff - any tips on what can be used to strenthen and improve the roof? or just a case of replace? Ive got a half shed that need a bit of maintenance. Thankyou.
