Frequently Asked Questions
What is a good Checklist I should Consider before I buy my Garden Shed?
- Make sure there is enough room around your shed to allow access behind the shed for building. Most Shed measurements are based on the footprint (ground area size), but most models have a roof overhang that you need to consider. If unsure, please ask our staff and let them know the model you are considering and the area available. Also consider fences sometimes have a lean, check what obstacles may be around and note the ground you have available is not always perfectly flat.
- Make sure the site is level and flat or consider the option of a floor framing kit if you wish to avoid extensive ground work.
- Allow for door openings and free space in front of your shed so it’s easy to get your stuff in and out without obstruction and causing damage. Consider if the ground in front of the door angles upward potentially blocking the door from opening.
- Consider the surrounding aesthetics and the visibility of the storage unit in the yard; consider a colour option that will potentially be more appealing.
- Investigate any local regulations or restrictions, some areas may have limitations on the overall height and or colour of buildings.
What Shipping Methods Are Available?
GardenShed.com offers delivery to many depots around Australia for pickup or Home delivery. You can select your preference in the checkout page.
To find the closest depot to you, click the menu item ‘Shed Delivery‘ at the top of the page then enter your postcode in the Map Search. We also try and automatically find the closest depot based on your computer location. But you may need to accept the pop-up for Google to obtain your location consent.
How Long Will It Take To Get My Shed?
Most orders to the east coast (Qld, NSW, VIC) arrive at the depots within 7 days of ordering. If you get your order in before 12:00 noon on weekdays, your shed will leave on the next delivery.
The west coast takes a little longer as we manufacture out of Brisbane. So expect around 10-14 days to reach a depot.
For Home delivery, there is normally a extra couple of day wait for the depot to contact you to arrange a suitable time to delivery to your house/dwelling.
For Depot deliveries, if need your shed in a rush, we suggest you keep an eye on the tracking code link. When the link shows the shed has arrived, we suggest you call the depot and ask to pickup asap. As sometimes they can take 24 hours before contacting clients.
Please note, these figures are based on our statistics of previous orders. However, from time to time, the delivery can be a little longer and this is out of our control. We always do our best to keep you informed and you get emails along the way including letting you know when the delivery truck is expected to pickup the shed, as well as a tracking code once collected.

How can I make my Garden Shed Waterproof?
Garden sheds are not a water proof structure to the standard of a home and/or properly installed portal steel framed building. Extreme weather conditions make it difficult to keep water from entering the shed through gaps, doorways and entries. Most commonly moisture may seep in under the base frame. We recommend a rebate in your concrete slab to minimise the risk and volume of water entry. Many of our customers purchase or make a flooring kit with a gap between the slats to allow any moisture to escape through the floor. We also recommend the use of shelving to keep water sensitive items elevated.
How Can I Return a Product?
GOODS DAMAGED IN TRANSIT
If any goods arrive damaged, be sure to mark the delivery receipt as being damaged to avoid being liable for replacement costs. We request that you email photos of the damage as well as providing proof of purchase in the form of your receipt, invoice or order confirmation email. We can then process your replacement parts free of charge. Please ensure you notify us not later than 30 days after delivery.
CHANGE OF MIND
We recommend you carefully review your order before adding them to your cart and proceeding with your order. We accepts returns for change of mind within 30 days of receipt of your items however, a refund of the product price, less a restocking fee of 30%, will be offered for any change of mind returns. Delivery costs are non-refundable and return freight costs are at the buyer’s expense.
When the returned item has been received into our warehouse, your refund will be processed.
If you need to return an item, simply send us an email with the details of your order and the refund request. We will notify you via e-mail of your refund once we have received and processed the returned item.

How do I place an Order?
We have designed our website to be as user friendly as possible. GardenShed.com even works nicely on mobile devices.
Simply browse through our sheds. We have a number of filters where you can search by Model, Size, Colour etc. Once you find the shed you would like to purchase, select a Colour, add any Accessories, and click Add To Cart. This will take you to the Cart page. Here you can check your order, and select the shipping option. If you are happy to collect from our Depots, then select the depot delivery (We will automatically find the closest depot to you. However, in the notes, you can always let us know too). If you prefer Home delivery, select the appropriate option and click Checkout.
The next step is the Checkout. Here you enter all your information and payment method and then confirm your order.

What’s The Coupon Codes Policy?
From time to time we run special promotions via promo codes. These are normally via the internet or email. If you come across a special promotion with a Promo code, simply enter this in the checkout process. You will see a Coupon Code field. Once entered, the discount will be reflected in the total.
How Can I Cancel Or Change My Order
Please check and double check your order receipt after purchase. As long as the delivery truck has not picked up your order, we can make changes. So if there is a change required, make sure to call us ASAP on 1800 272 681.
Is Buying On-Line Safe?
Absolutely. We have a secure website so when you go to checkout, the page turns to an encrypted page. Meaning that when you submit your order, all the details are encoded/encrypted and not readable until they have reached the payment gateway (EWAY) where they are only able to extract the credit card details.
Of course, if you still do not feel comfortable, we can certainly take your order over the phone. 1800 272 681
How Do I Track My Order?
Once our delivery truck has picked up your shed, we send you a tracking code/link via email. You can use this link to see what stage your order is at. And when it arrives at the closest depot to you, you can always call them for quick pickup, or call them to request a suitable home delivery date/time.
Do note, you will receive a msg/call when you shed is ready for pickup or scheduling for home delivery. But you can always check your tracking code and call them when it arrives to speed up the process a little 😉
Enjoy your Shed!
