Thanks to q44q for further discount code.Good price for a large size metal shed, even more so with code, with some other sizes also reduced...
6' x 4' Argos 'wow' deal £99.99 Item: 705/3225
Another 6' x 4' was £179.99, now £119.99 Item: 705/4918
10' x 4' was £199.99, now £169.99 Item: 705/3249

Had one of these for our static caravan, and it lasted longer than the caravan!.They take a while to put together (lots of bolts! a bit like a large Meccano kit) but the finished result makes it very worth while, as you end up with a very sturdy shed, which can easily be fixed to a slab or concrete base.
These can not be collected instore, no surprise when you see the size of the boxes they come in, so Delivery is in addition, and is £8.95, although this is per order, not per item.
10 year guarantee against rust!

I looked at these the other day, and I'm sorry to say but these have some really awful reviews, people having to spend hours building them, flimsy sheets of metal, holes not in the right locations etc..

I'm not voting either way, but personally would spend a bit extra and go wooden.

Not really worried whether this deal goes hot or cold, at the end of the day it's only a shed, but for people that aren't familiar with these metal sheds, it's worth pointing out a few things before dismissing them.Most of the reviews are actually very good, with the majority of any poor reviews, really being down to the reviewer's lack of DIY ability, the sort of person that can't put a flat pack together.It's true they take a while to build, took me 4 hours I think on my own, wheras I can put up a wooden 6x4 in less than an hour, but although the panels seem flimsy on their own, once all attached overlap style to the rigid framing, and the cross sections are put in, they become very strong, even more so if fixed to a base.Mine was sited next to our caravan (shame I had to give it up!) on the Lincolnshire coast, and got a right battering every Winter with some very strong winds blowing in from the North Sea, as our pitch was quite exposed, but it was never damaged, and kept all my bikes and gardening equipment dry and secure.As regards the holes not aligning, that is again I'm afraid more down to the person not assembling it correctly, the holes do align correctly, but obviously you need to make sure you build this on a flat or level surface, like a drive etc, otherwise no, the holes won't align, and you'll probably end up with a poorly built shed, and a load of bolts left over!.Obviously it's down to personal choice, but with a 10yr rust warranty, and hardly any maintenance required, these are a very good alternative to the traditional wooden sheds.They are not for everyone, because as I hope I'm pointing out, you'll need a bit of DIY ability to assemble, but they're not difficult.If you have, or are thinking of getting a sited caravan this year, you'll find the majority of caravan holiday parks specify that wooden steps, veranda's, and shed's are not allowed due to the fire risk, and although I also have a small Keter plastic storage unit, I personally find them ugly things.

Anyway, thanks to q44q for the code, make this an even better buy, for some!;)
