What a nightmare
"When I ordered it, there was only 1 review up so far, and I thought my very experienced DIY neighbour and my personal handy skills should get this sorted.
How wrong I was, the instruction are very poor, the markings on the parts are poor or non existent, holes don't match up on quite a few parts and having to bend your own corner panels after a stupid picture is ridiculous. How this thing received a TUV approval for anything is beyond me. The flimsyness of most of the parts doesn't help to a good building experience, either. B&Q would be well advised to either stop selling these or advise to get the help of a master craftsman in flimsy shed building. Never again.

What a nightmare!
"Will never buy a metal shed again! To start with there were some parts dented and/or scratched. The instructions that were supplied were completely useless. The parts were very poorly stamped with parts letters and some were not stamped at all. The walls are incredibly flimsy and the the screw holes poorly drilled and/or in the wrong place. The front doors aren't flush when closed and there are extra holes in the roof that will presumably let in rain at the first chance! We bought this shed a few months ago and have only now had the chance to put it up. If the previous review had been made before we bought it i would never have done so. We encountered exactly the same problems. Don't buy it!
It took 10 hours yesterday to build and will need a few more hours to complete some little bits this morning. At many points i thought my husband was going to smash the useless thing up and take it down the dump. I wouldn't have blamed him if he had! How this product got past B&Q quality control I do not know, but will think twice before buying anything substantial from there again.

worst purchase ever
"My advice is 'DO NOT BUY IT'. What a nightmare, 4 weekends, 2 adults, 18 hours later and we still do not have a finished product. Even the company who supply this Australian shed have said the instructions are poor and incorrect. We certainly did not expect to have to fold metal sheets to make the corners of the shed. The metal braces to support the front are too long so the doors won't close, screws for the front fachias again stop the door from opening and closing. Roof holes that don't even need screws so the rain gets in. Base of shed not flush against floor so rain gets in here too!! In all fairness the company who supplied this on behalf of B&Q have been good , so far."

Our main office number is 0161 430 3347. If, upon inspection you find any missing or damaged parts, we offer a full and immediate replacement service. Customers are advised to check all parts prior to building for that purpose.
The complete range of steel sheds offered through B&Q is of the highest quality in each category. We are confident that when erected according to the instructions, Canberra Pent Shed 8x4ft will provide dry, secure and maintenance free storage.
