" not sure how they work in Yorkshire, but like me I'm a property developer and been in the game too long to mention, this product was an absolute doddle to erect on my own and does the job more than adequately. Granted the doors are flimsy but they are secure when padlocked. At the end of the day your not going to put the Crown Jewels in there are you. "

Excellent Shed
15 Aug 2014
By
, Retford
" I read reviews before buying and was expecting it to be a real pain to build. Great surprise - it took 4 hours with the help of my 12 year old son (and it was raining!). If you can read numbers and understand a 3D drawing, it couldn't be much easier - it does need 2 people, however, because panels, etc need to be held whilst screws are fixed. A decent cordless screwdriver also makes the job easier. Once assembled the shed is rigid and stable. One downside is the locking method, which uses a padlock through the 'plastic' door handles. I will easily improve this by fixing a good hasp and staple with some nuts and bolts.
I have reviewed performance and reliability as average because I have only had the shed for 2 days - but so far so good!!

Poor instructions
10 Feb 2014
By
, berkshire
" Now that it's up seems very sturdy and good quality but the assembly was a nightmare took two full time maintenance staff 5bours to build. Reading a step ahead then going back to current step helps other than that the only minor down side is trying to hold the small field screws whilst getting them to bite. Can't comment on reliability as only just been built so given a mutual rating but would recommend if you have the patience to assemble "

Best metal shed ever?
25 Jul 2010
By
, North Wales
" The main sore point about purchasing this product, is that it got delivered to my home at 10pm on a Thursday night!
Other than that, the product itself is as it says on the description, it is a galvanised steel shed.
It took just under 4hrs for me and my dad to assemble and fix it into position, so not as bad as some claim, although the instructions could be a bit better. When fully assembled and fixed to the floor, it is probably more stable than a timber shed, but yes the doors are a bit flimsy, but if someone wants to break into a wooden shed, all they need is a screwdriver, so it is probably just as safe, and more noisy if someone does try to get into it!!!
I have only just put it up, but having had a yardmaster shed before for over 5years with no issues, I am sure this will stand the test of time.
This is a good form of cheap storage space that requires no maintenance so I would recommend it. (they do sweat in the summer, so don't store anything in carboard boxes)

Better than wanylap
3 Oct 2009
By
, Manchester
" Very time consuming to build and yes, the doors are flimsy by virtue of being made of thin sheet metal.
However, in comparison to a similar sized wood shed I found that...
1. its in the same price range
2. you wont need to treat it every year or two
3. you wont need to refelt the roof after it degrades
4. with a decent lock, the doors are no less vulnerable
5. less likely to lose its shape if you lean on it or a strong wind blows!!

" Can't see what all the fuss was about.
One person to hold panels in place whilst other person fixes them.
stared at 8am finished by 2pm.
Shed is good value for money.
Ordered shed on the Monday it was delivered on the Wednesday.

Pain to put up
17 Aug 2011
By
, London
" This product was an absolute pain to put together even though I had professional assistance. It took two people almost a full day to erect. The door was the most difficult part as the instructions are inadequate consisting of small pictures that did not have sufficient detail. We persevered and won in the end but the doors do not slide easily and stick on the round screw heads. I have padlocked the door but security is a disappointment as any one with a screw driver will get inside in five minutes. "

" shed was a pain to build and took two of us a day to put up. Doors are poor quality and could easily be broken into. Would recomend a conventional timber shed any day. "

Yardmaster
24 May 2015
By
, South Yorkshire
" This product is self assembly. I am tradesman of 40 years experience and run my own building company.
Beware!! Unless you are prepared to work from picture instructions and spend approx 4 weeks trying to understand the logic of the instructions and then literally a further 4 weeks putting this together with self tapping screws that are too small for the pre drilled fixing holes, good luck.
All in all, it is total rubbish and poor quality is an understatement.

Nice shed......now it's built!
7 Jan 2013
By
, Forest of Dean
" Now that it's up, this is actually a nice little shed, and at a very reasonable price - but oh my god what a pain to it is to put together.
You will not beliece how many components are involved. It's clear that nearly all the design effort has gone into ensuring all the parts fit snuggly into the smallest box possible - and virtually no thought has gone into ease of construction. "

Sureal amount of construction
21 Sep 2012
By
, Forest of Dean
" Now it's built, this is a decent shed, for a decent price, but the sureal amount of construction required means there's no way I could ever reccommend this product.
You will not believe how many components there are and it took myself and a friend - both of experienced maintenance men - around 6 hours to build. 12 man hours spent putting this thing together!!!
Nearly all the design effort has gone into making it fit into a surprisingly small box (presumably to keep transport costs down). The instructions are vague and there's just some many littles parts to find and join together, all of which could easily have been manufactured in one section. The parts are numbered, which is definitely helpful - but when you realise that there are part numbers like '408409.24EA' it's pretty obvious how little importance has been placed on ease of construction.

It's OK
11 Apr 2011
By
, London
" Delivery was exactly 2 weeks. It arrived ok and we started to assemble it. We found 2 parts the same and one part missing. We had to ring Yardmaster who said they would send the correct one straight away. It arrived 4 days later. The shed is ok ish but the screws keep popping out all the time even when you just open the flimsy doors. It is NOT very well made, but for the price, it will have to do. Will stick to a wood fence in future "

nightmare!!!!!!!
22 Jun 2009
By
, manchester
" This reveiw is mainly attributted to the construction of this flat pack nightmare only time will tell if all the other claimed qualities are lived up to. If you purchase one of these you will need to set aside all weekend and be prepared to be amazed how many screws and corrugated panels go into making up this relatively small shed, and also you will need help from a friend or two you will not manage it on your own.
