    Just FYI, i bought a shed from these people a couple of years back. It was good quality at a good price and the service was good.

    I've just ordered a shed from J D Marshalls, it's slightly over 6 x 4 and is metal, with double doors. It's cost me £160 and that is including delivery.

    their prices are scandalous.. a 6x4 shed is £170, £70.01 more expensive than Wickes

    B & Q have their 6 x 4 shed back in at £95, which is okay if you have some way of getting it home but if you have to add on £20 for delivery too it's not so much of a bargain.

    The Trademaster I ordered from Marshalls is the same price as the one on GardenBuildingsDirect but it's galvanised steel and I won't have to mess about with wood preserver etc and will probably last for years longer than a wooden one.

    I've just put up a metal shed with the same idea about future maintenance (10 year guarantee) and also the possibility of dismantling when I move. However, it's soaking wet inside despite spending hours putting silicon sealant over all the screw holes in the roof. I'm not sure if this is rainwater or condensation but I really don't know what else to do. :confused:

    By the way, if the instructions say it takes 2 people 10 hours to erect, they aren't lying! :eek:

    I don't know anything about the Wickes shed mentioned above, but the B&Q one has overlap cladding, whereas the gardenbuildingsdirect one is tongue and groove. Overlap is usually cheaper than T&G.

    Trust me, for comparable products, gardenbuildingsdirect is much cheaper than the likes of B&Q. I got a Waltons 8x6 Groundsman shed that costs £299 + £20 del from B&Q (exactly the same shed) for £252 delivered. Including a free opening window. Ordered the Friday afternoon before the Easter weekend and it arrived on the following Thursday.

    The 10x6 pressure treated model, £549 in B&Q, is £429 there.

    If you want a cheap 6x4 overlap shed however, B&Q's probably as good a bet as anywhere.

    I bought my shed from gardenbulidingsdirect. The driver told me that the sheds were the same as those from Argos, and in fact Argos were cheaper!

    Maybe worth a look...
    Waddle you do eh?

    I bought a similar one a couple of years ago. It's condensation, and, lots of it :mad:
