Good value for money shed
Recently I purchased a 1.52m x 0.78m x 1.95m garden shed. I assembled an identical shed 5 years ago without any problems but the one I recently purchased presented a few minor problems. All of the punched holes in the rear right hand panel were in the wrong place and I needed to re-drill holes in the connected panels for correct hole alignment. Several of the holes were not punched right through and needed drilling. Also the holes punched in the roof edge angles if aligned with the roof holes placed the angles too far forward. Re-drilling was ...required. Overall I am very pleased with both of the sheds and would not hesitate to purchase a Garden Pro shed in the future. I was pleased to find an anchoring kit in the package although the sticker on the front said it was not included.
Purchased in August 2019 at Bunnings Warehouse for $159.00.
Pretty good except holes were hard to line up
It is a good size and design but the holes didnt line up that well so needed to drill others to put it together. Good price though so can complain.
Great shed for the money, great support videos
I bought a 3mx3m zinc shed and assembled it with help from my dad and brother. The instructions are pretty clear, but the videos are really excellent and I recommend them. We kept quoting them to one another like fans. "Nest the corners in." FYI, the site is in the country, without power. So I spent a couple of hours putting the channels and roof beam together and assembling the doors at home. Then put it all in the trailer, took it up country, and laid it out on big tarps. These panels are big so I used the trailer as a workbench, along with a...nother set of trestles. It went together well, the snap-on channels are terrific, it's all logical like a great big Meccano set. We had to check the videos on the app a few times for sneaky tips, and did have to drill out a few extra holes but no drama. You will need a step ladder, preferably two drills so you don't have to keep swapping bits, gloves, and wrench or socket set. And cake! And take your time - don't rush, think things through. We took about 7 hours. Would do it again. It was interesting to do, and well engineered.

Perfect for my tools and garden equipment
I am glad i bought the garden shed for my garden equipments storage room. Perfect for keeping all my tools in one place . I love to have it in my backyard.

Overall Easy to install and few improvement is suggested
This shed has detailed manual to help me install it step by step. I can follow it easily. And the design of structure is simple and efficient, quite good for DIYer.
I would suggest to improve the manual about exact screw type for each application. Besides, I find when I water the roof, there still some water leaking into internal area via the edge of door, which could be improve as well.
Overall, it is good stuff for people with basic assemble ability and I would recommend any one give it a go.

Easy to assemble
This shed was put up by 2 mates of mine and it was easy to assemble, great size/quality for the price paid.
i am happy
because i have not done a shed yet when it starts with my friend it was like ooom ommm is it gonna be good. but after doing the roof, sides, rear and front panels i said to my friend looks good. when its done to a concrete slab it looks amazing
Absolute rubbish to put together
Purchased the 3m x 3m shed. It took 6 hours to try and understand the instructions which were not clear at all and put the shell of the shed together. None of the holes lined up, rivets not supplied, not enough bolts supplied for the hinges, not enough screws supplied. Holes didn't line up.
The pressed locks on the hinges snapped off so had to purchase new hinges, more expense.
It took 3 days to put together one shed because we just dreaded attempting it any further.
Unfortunately I bought two of these sheds and we now have the dauntin...g task of putting another one together. Don't tell me how sorry you are to hear I am not happy with the product, just send one of your reps to my home and put the bloody thing together for me. Absolute nightmare and migraine material. Never again will I purchase one of your products.
Not having built a shed before was suprised at just how easy the whole process was, great quality with easy to understand instructions.
Missing brackets, broken door hinge
Purchased a 'GardenPro' Masterstore Shed 15081MK (Made by Absco Sheds) from Bunnings in August. Have only just got around to assembling it. Assembled the front panel and attached the door with hinges to the frame as per instructions before final assembly. Moving the front frame panel around after assembly, the door detached itself from it's hinges. My only option to fix this will be to drill out the rivets I attached the hinges to the frame with, then drill out holes to re-attach the hinges to the door with rivets before re-riveting the hinges ...to the frame. This shed should also have come with angle brackets to bolt it to whatever base I chose to use, but there were none. There were also only included 6 bolts and nuts for attaching the (non existent) brackets to the walls, however the instructions showed 8 anchor points for securing the shed to a base.
This shed was easy to assemble, all the parts were supplied, the pre-drilled holes lined up and the finished product is very sturdy.
Good shed - difficult to put together
The shed is of good quality and well built. The application for construction of the shed did not work. We called the helpline and they spoke to us, requested we send photos by e-mail but never responded. The paper instructions for the doors were very confusing and it took probably an hour longer than it should have to put them together as a result. We received one wrong part which meant we had to drill the holes as the pre-drilled were not in the right position.
Great product, easy to asemble. Looks fantastic and great quality. We are very happy with the shed, it matched the description and looks exactly how it should. Highly recommend .
Great instructions with App
I had been warned about how difficult setting up sheds can be in kit form.
However this kit arrived with clear instructions and an app to download which contained videos.
The Snaptite feature made installing easy.
The only thing to keep in mind is you definitely need 2 people to install.
Just the right size for my yard
I have a small back yard and it was the only one I could find that would fit perfectly am very pleased looks great and was very easy to assemble
