NZ’s Best Shed Company

If you Google kit shed suppliers NZ, the result is quite something: roughly 7,000,000 results in less than half a second.

So how do you choose which company to go with? The first few results you see are often paid for ads anyway.

For a start, reviews are a good way to find out if a business is credible, has experience and will deliver what you’re after, and most established businesses will have a Google listing that will has numerous reviews to showcase the experience others have had with that company — both ups and downs. While reviews and testimonials from customers are helpful and reassuring, nothing beats doing your own research, thinking long and hard about the design you’re after and what the shed will be used for, and above all, trying to take price out of the equation. It is both common and easy to focus on the cheapest option, but cheapest doesn’t mean you’re buying the best; in fact it often means the reverse!

Asking a few (or all!) of these questions may help you come to a final decision:

What materials do they use: 

What is the quality of their materials like? What is most durable? Is the timber wet? Is the cladding quality suitable for my location? How thick is the steel? What are the guarantees on the materials? Do they use Machine Gauged or Rough Sawn Timber?

Engineering & design:

Will my shed be designed specifically for me and my needs? Will it take into account snow and wind loadings? Will it be able to support the weight of extras, like solar panels? Is the shed design suitable for my intended use? Can I make it birdproof? How long will my shed last? Is rust going to be an issue? Who supplies doors and windows? Can I get solar panels and water storage at the same time?

What are they like to deal with? 

What is the communication of the company like? How fast do they respond? How long does it take to get quotes and other information? Is the salesperson knowledgeable and open to listening to what I am after, or just trying to upsell me all the time?

The way you’re looked after is a key indicator of the company’s competence. If communication is bad and they take ages getting information back to you, and no or little interest is shown in your project in the initial research and design phase, how will the delivery (and possibly construction)  of your shed go?
