Summerhouse Installation

A 15 working day lead time will apply to customers requiring installation of their summer house.
We will always do our best to achieve these times but exceptional or unavoidable circumstances may extend these lead times.

Installation is not available on all summerhouses, please refer to product for installation details and cost.

Let’s face it, we are not all experts in DIY, and with today’s busy lifestyles we don’t always have the time to work out what goes where and how everything fits together – even when simple step-by-step instructions are provided!

That’s why, here at Buy Sheds Direct, we are pleased to be able to offer you a professional installation service for your garden shed, garden building or structure, leaving you with more time to spare for other activities.  Let’s face it we make them so who better to assemble and install them?

Once you've made your purchase and selected our installation service our installers will arrive with your shed, un-pack it and assemble it in your chosen location.  All we need you to do is make sure that a level and firm base is ready for the building to be assembled.

Once the garden building is up and you are happy with the job, we will take away all the packaging and dispose of it, so you don’t have to worry about clearing up after we’ve gone.

Finally, our installation service has some geographical limitations, so please make sure that you check that we can offer the service in your area with our simple post code checker, or please feel free to contact us directly.
