Poor quality product.
The storage shed side was damaged on arrival, however I patched that up rather than try and send the unit back. However the roof has basically sheared where the hinges are located and the whole roof has warped and discoloured in the sun. Not fit for purpose is my view. I certainly can not recommend this product to anyone with my experiences to date.
Purchased for $800.00.
ROCKWOOD DECK BOX (CHARCOAL)
Garbage. Parts missing in the box. Tried getting a replacement from Bunnings and got nowhere! If you are thinking of getting one of these storage units ... do yourself a favour and think again.
Poor product, non-existent customer service
Bought a shed last year. The product was fine for a few months but then the top panel started to warp allowing the rain in. Gotten progressively worse. After trying to fill in a the form on their website the site said it's not working at this time (for a while now). So I contacted Keter Australia a few times with absolutely no response. Their product seems pretty poor and the customer service is totally shocking. Couldn't recommend them at all. With no response from Keter, I'm still trying to figure out how to get this product sorted out - its too big to return to the place of purchase
Purchased in August 2018.
Keter factor 8 x 11 garden shed
I purchased this shed from Bunnings and was it delivered undamaged with no pieces missing.. Its quite an ingenious construction. The panels look a bit flimsy but when erected it is quite strong. A couple of problems with it. The ad says no slab required but the first instruction in the handbook says lay a concrete slab.I didn't lay one but it does need to be dead level so the doors close and the panels are straight..The door hinges are rubbish I cant see them lasting out the Lifetime warranty..I did the whole job on my own without help and it t...ook a week to erect. The roof panels were the most difficult to do. Whatever you do don't take them out of the box until they are ready to be installed. If you get the slightest bend in them you cant slide them into the grooves. I had that problem with one panel and ended up cutting it in half and joining it again when up. It reminds me of those construction kits of battleships I used to do as a kid. Guttering as an optional extra would be good though. All in all don't expect it to look exactly like the picture in the brochure.. Ingenious design by Israeli Manufacturers..The instructions were easy to follow. It was quite expensive but I saved on the cost of a concrete slab.

Very disappointed and way, way over priced
Keter Factor 8-Foot x 6-Foot Storage Shed in Beige
COLOR : BEIGE | SIZE : 8' X 6'
This is a very flimsy and poorly designed storage building and especially for the price. I'm very, very disappointed. The good thing is that it will sit on my carport, under a roof. I bought a rubbermaid shed that is much better constructed. Just couldn't find one in the size I needed.
Product delivered damaged!
Do not buy. Ordered the Keter storage shed Grande. Shed parts damaged. Sent email, nothing, not a thing has been done. It has been over 2 months. Assembly of product proved to be a pain in the neck. Would not buy from them again. It would seem that they don't stand by their own products.
Great value - long term thinking
Expectations are rarely met because at most times we expect perfection - this is not a solid resin pre-fab, if it was you would be paying 4 x as much, when you 1st unpack your impression may be that the panels appear weak or flimsy however as you progress through the construction you will find that at each stage the engineering balances that.
It's a 2 man job and I needed to employ a professional handyman to assist , he's built countless colorbond (Australia) sheds and he was really impressed with the Keter - his words ' When I put ...a "tinny" together the average cost for labour is $1.200 and that's without the foundation" this job took 5 hours at a cost of $ 275.00. In comparison a Keter shed seems more expensive than a "tinnie" but given the longer labour of a 'tinnie' and long term benefit of resin, as in no rust + good air flow = no condensation for stored metal tools and other equip + visual appeal, I'm a bit OCD but I'm rapt with the purchase and would recommend - keep in mind as reality is a few minor flaws but the visual finished product as opposed to 'tinnies' is to me a better option , I'm trying to have a argument with my wife just so I can have a sleep out : )

8x6 Keter shed
Arrived promptly when expected good communication on delivery. Started putting this together bag of washers missing to put the Base together. Rang keter on hold for 30mins then cut off. Their website would not allow you to contact on line. Eventually managed to send an email on email@example.com. Still no response. Building the shed without them. After spending £500 on a shed disappointing these parts were missing and vital to start building the shed. Wasted more than 1 hour trying to contact them. Poor customer service. Only the roof to put on now. But le9vel Base needed as this is the 2nd attempt at erecting the shed. Some of the panels are a little warped.
STOP!!!! Do not purchase!
All Keter Products are complete garbage & so is their customer service!
Cheaply made. Awful customer service. The company is shady.
I purchased a 10x8 Keter resin shed at the beginning of January 2017. After spending several hours assembling the shed when I finally put on the doors, they didn’t line up. I have been in contact with the company, at least, 20 times since then over the course of 4 months via phone and email. I confirmed that the shed was on a level surface, but the door still wouldn’t line up. I first spoke with [name removed] ...
Sturdy good looking storage shed
I bought this shed from Bunnings a few years ago and have been pleased with it ever since. It's a good looking shed and stores everything securely. However it was actually tricky to put together, so it was lucky I had someone handy who was doing it for me. Even so it took a lot longer than the instructions suggested it would take. A couple of pieces were a little bent and we bent them back to the right shape - but that would be an inconvenience if you were unable to do so. I didn't have a concrete slab so we laid pavers down on the area beforehand and this worked out well.
Hard to put together, some pieces arrived bent in the box
Great DIY shed
I bought this shed online through eBay and it was delivered by Cheap Sheds in 2 days ( Brisbane Metro). Fantastic customer service with speedy delivery. Well done Cheap Sheds.
The shed itself was easy to build and I did most of it on my own, apart from screwing down the roof panels which requires someone holding down the roof panel from the outside while another person works inside with a screwdriver. I had it finished in a 4 hours. All the parts are well labelled and Instructions are clear and concise.
I highly recommend watching the "Ho...w To Build" video(s) while waiting for delivery because this makes it so much easier to follow the instructions. I built my shed on a 20cm compacted base of drainage gravel as it will house a model railway for my father and I need it to be very dry inside. The flooring panels have bedded in after a few days of foot traffic so there is no more crunching sound underfoot. It appears the roof 'gutter' may direct water onto walls and external part of the floor panels so I may have to seal the wall floor joint or attach a proper gutter to redirect the water. As for the construction...Plastic "flash" from the molding process was mostly cleaned off but I did have to do a little myself. All the parts fitted together easily but, as per instructions, the site must be perfectly flat and level or the roofing sections wont come together with the walls. I had this problem but because I erected it on gravel a few movements of the shed back and forth leveled everything up. The roof panels are black so get quite hot under the Australian midday sun. It would be good if they were a lighter colour to reflect some of the heat. As an experiment Ive attached white corflute sheets to the roof and insulated inside the shed on the sun exposed side so we can work inside during the day. Results yet to be determined.
Very Functional Garden Shed
i wouldnt buy anythinmg but Keter sheds, this is the second one i purchased. you dont need a concrete slab... it is water proof, and the way the floor and everything fits together you hardly any spiders and definitly havent seen any mice or rats in there.... and very simple to assemble.
it was very easy to make it happen, didnt need to get concretors in to do a slab and only took me 3 hours to install
wasnt exactly cheap but the old saying goes.... you get what you pay for, i would say it was good value for money but not cheap.
Questions & Answers
Who can I contact in Australia regarding my Keter product. Pleasae provide a name, contact no. and email address.
I have just bought an Oakdale Keter shed and as usual, the customer response is average at best.
I am considering installing a small wall AC and TV on separate end walls and was wondering about the load or weight bearing capacity?
Are the garden sheds suitable for Central Queensland coastal areas that may be exposed to a cyclone from time to time?
I dont know.Instructions reccomend staking it down but we are in South Australia and dont get cyclones.If Bunnings sell them in Queensland then they probably are ok but check with them before buying.The floor has holes to bolt it down through. Same would apply to any shed I would think. From what I have seen even houses get blown away so you have to take a chance I think.
Hi Peter and for anyone else watching, Geoffs' answer is pretty good. If well anchored these are very strong, they are rated to 105 KMH. Keter have 2 other lines, their more premium sheds that are rated to 145 KMH, the Oakland and the Artisan, both of which we sell on our website. I dont think I can post an image here but heres a link to a screenshot of the wind ratings: https://i.imgur.com/m7emOO0.png
