The cost of transporting a shed could easily be £100-200. And, that's assuming it fits into a transit. If it needs a flatbed truck to transport it, there's no economic way to move it. That's why a secondhand shed has negative value
I'm not altogether surprised it hasn't been picked up. Your buyer was naive, and you're very lucky they paid cash.
Your cheapest option for disposing of it is to saw it up into small enough bits to go into the boot of your car, then take it to the dump. You can saw sheds up with a handsaw pretty easily, and just regard it as good exercise.
So, really your only problem is getting the buyer's consent and/or serving the correct notices under the Torts Interference.... Act.
I'd be grateful if, when you get a response from gumtree if you would share some of the info with us.
What's happening to you is worth remembering as no one wants to sit on something for yonks especially if its a large item
and the platform used should have clear guidelines.
