Seems a reasonable price for this size tin shed, what more can I say.
I can say I wouldn't have one chucked at me because
1 it would hurt.
2 not very secure.
3 very noisy.
4 the old condensation problem.
I'm not selling this deal very well really but if your after one it's a good price!

Buy shiplap timber frames from somewhere live Tigersheds, please don't buy metal.
They are a poor substitute. Talking from experience unfortunately

More plastic shed deals needed please. Too many TV, phone and laptop deals. Not enough deals on plastic sheds.

Yes I totally agree, I've just ripped my tin shed down and built my own wooden shed from Pallets and a bit of bought timber that's why I sort of took the pee out of my own deal when I posted it

@col11 You forgot about:
5 Suitable only for the vertically challenged Door height is only 159cm = under 5.25 feet!
PS they usually are for some reason, maybe by the time you've struggled to get it up, you don't care.
We've got two. The Arrow one, purchased first is much better quality. We get no condensation and it holds a lot. There is thick cardboard on top of the slabbed patio base with carpet on top. It stores two motorbikes with no issues whatsoever. We do have the door open on hot days though as it gets very warm! The second one is a Yardmaster - no real issues here either, but this one is used for storing garden tools and equipment, and replaced a wooden playhouse that rats had chewed through and were nesting/sleeping/breeding between the wooden floor supports. They also chewed from a Keter plastic storage box.

Agree though they are a pain to put together and you need to be an octopus
I built a 10 x 9 Yardmaster shed 10 years ago and its rock solid and as good as the day i built it, the only maintenance its needed is grease on the sliding door runners. It gets a bit of condensation on the panels, but its housed my 2 motorcycles and tools and they've suffered no ill effects.
However.... I recently decided to have a smaller one for scross the other side of my garden and spent £210 on a 7 x 6 Yardmaster. Its really low quality and flimsy compared to my other one. Panels, door and roof are much thinner quality and there is no brace bars around the walls. Every self tapper screw stripped its thread going into the pilot holes and i had to go out and buy decent screws.
I can see from the picture that this grey one is the same lower quality and design, with no side bracing, like the one i recently built.
It seems to be only the bigger Yardmaster sheds, that are better made and a much stronger construction.
Welcome to the sweatbox!

It may be the case for this item but the best metal sheds are Asgard. The Rolls Royce of secure and well made British sheds
I am awaiting the arrow 8 x 6 tall shed on Argos for £200. Was meant to have delivery late April, but Argos postponed to 17th or May. It was best price vs what your getting I could find. I am sceptical about what I will be facing erecting the shed however...

Yes I noticed that, that's why the display model had the warning tape over the door!

Agree with you, bought one 30 years ago and was still standing long after I moved house 10 years later. It was the bracing that gave it strength. Constructing outdoor buildings from thin materials is fine if the geometry is right, but leaving out that extra strength doesn't look good. I now have a Keter plastic shed that I bought second hand 10 years ago, and it's really sound. One person can assemble it, whereas it took 5 people to put the roof on the big Yardmaster (as I recall), and had to be done when there was zero wind!!

Are there any instructions how to get started? Would be really interested to build my own shed just don’t know exactly how to get started.
I did an extensive search before buying one from Asgard via screw fix. Asgard is British made heavy duty garden storage company. Yes they are pricey but as it goes "buy cheap buy twice".

I would highly recommend Asgard made to order storage.

Start by buying wood

Brilliant idea, you must be the smartest person on HUKD
Do not buy this, even if its £20!

Basically make 4 Square frames from 2x2 or 2x3 two of them sloping so roof is sloping, board them over(leaving a doorway) and bolt together, put a couple of joists across board and felt OR corigated sheets, I used mainly reclaimed timber but new 2x2 for frame, lots of videos on YouTube
I love these tin shed deale, loads vote hot but all comments say don't buy them!
