Great shed but number printing needs more quality control

the 30302GECOK shed is a great size and well made. I have assembled a few of these prior which makes it a lot easier, The instructions could be improved with hints and tips of shed building in general, no mention of tin snips needed that I noticed, Not supplying printed instructions was disappointing but easy to find and printout. The sheet and bracket numbering was smudged , poor or hard to read on many parts but not all. Prior experience helped a lot to find the right item needed. I mount the sheds on a sleeper base which makes them much more stable and I reinforce the corners with treated pine to make them very solid and they will last a long time. Show details

Great shed!

I had 4 joiner connectors missing from my shed. I contacted Ron at Absco and he sent the missing parts to NZ straight away. I have assembled the shed and found that a lot of the pre drilled holes did not align. I have made my own wooden base spending $140 on timber so have saved a bit of money there. I recommend having a person help with the assembly. I put the walls and roof together by myself but needed a second person to construct it. I am very happy with the result. Show details ·  1

Never again! Not even if they give it away for free!

Would not get this again even if Absco or Bunnings were giving them away for free! MODEL: 15081SK - AWFUL instructions in video and PDF. Snaptite system is complete and utter load of crap. Holes don't align. Instructions are so poor. Watched the instructions on the app AND on Youtube. If you want to waste your time and money, buy this poorly designed shed at your own peril. I've given up. Chucking this PoS out with the next bulk waste collection. $229 down the drain. Show details

DON'T buy, so many bad reviews for a reason, how it has a 4 star average seems a little suss to me

Hard to put together with less than 4 people as each individual part is so flimsy, holes don't line up, engineering is poor so that it makes certain parts or assembly even harder. Try and line the doors up, good luck. Requires plenty of rivets as the click in system is pretty half arsed. Dont rely on this to store things safe, a philips head and you're in.... Wish I'd bough timber and roofing and build my own. Would have been better, stronger and quicker Never again! Show details

Tedious, Frustrating, Time consuming

I purchased this shed a month ago with the intentions to set it up within the few claimed hours that Absco mention. Its been a few weeks now, due to missing/wrong parts. x2 I have had to contact customer service to have parts from QLD mailed to me. This has placed a hold on the construction of my shed. It is a time consuming and tediious process to construct the shed, so you can imagine when you reach a step and the part(s) are missing.
Ill be honest, Absco Customer Service has been good, but due to the frustration, and amount of time this is taking to put together a shed, I am rating this 1 star. I wish I just contracted someone to erect a shed end to end. Such a waste of time.
The shed as of this review is in pieces all over my garage. Show details

Nice little Shed

I received my new shed as a birthday gift from the wife, the build was a little frustrating , even for a Qualified Chippy. Ran into a damaged roof part from the manufacture process, so had to call their customer service team. Tom helped even on a Saturday around lunch, he was prompt at resolving the issue and had the part reordered made and shipped. The shipping was held up but not due to Absco and the part finally arrived after 2 frustrating weeks. Great storage shed, assembly instructions could be alot better ,overall happy thanks to Tom. Show details ·  1

Excellent customer service

The shed is great for the price (599 USD at Tractor Supply) but unfortunately a piece was missing. This is a shout out to customer service rep Ron, who handled the case with great courtesy and professionalism. Show details ·  1

We got there in the end

Had 3 roof panels missing. It took 7 weeks to resolve the situation and then only by going directly to the NZ agent. Thanks, it is now complete. Show details ·  1

Missing parts

Purchased Absco shed under the impression probably missing parts as most reviews state missing parts had fingers crossed I wouldn’t have that problem but yes I’m missing items .
Trying to get items from Absco been an up hill battle with Absco was told take photos of numbers of production date / initials of who made it done this 2weeks later an email no we can’t send unless you send photos of the channels of who made it what a joke .
I wouldn’t recommend I use to build sheds for a living an have found other brands more reliable. Show details

Denise S. · Absco Garden Sheds

Hi, we have the 1.52 x 1.52 space saver. A few missing holes but no drama until we got to the top door jamb (part 90C) which is about 5mm too long. We checked off parts prior to assembly but didn't measure to the mm. Would rather not have to cut parts to fit. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Thanks. Actually we have solved the problem with a pair of tin snips. Cheers

Can the bike shed be disassembled to be moved and then reassembled at new location? Thanks

I'd suggest partially disassembling it, into four sides and two roof subassemblies. But yes it should not be a problem.

Why don’t Absco provide a list of parts found in each box, would be helpful when attempting to assemble. Model 30302GK

Hi John, Apologies for the confusion. We do recommend that all components in each box be marked off the checklist prior to starting construction of the shed. We have passed your feedback onto the team as well.
