Before taking delivery of your new metal shed:

Before taking delivery, we recommend that all Scooter Stores are situated on a firm, flat, level base. Ideally this should be 50mm concrete, tarmac or flagstones (patio). You will notice all of the products on this website site have a "base size" this is the minimum level base size we feel is appropriate for each product. a firm, flat base will ensure doors open cleanly and will make assembly of the units much easier (Why is a level base important). Here is a quick reference list of recommended shed base sizes for each shed.

Shed base sizes

Before building your shed, it is important to make sure you have a good, firm base for your shed to sit on. Your shed should sit on a level base of either concrete, tarmac or paving slabs.

Why does the base have to be level?  A common question!   Sheds are precision made products – Designed to be as secure as possible – So the doors need to be level for all the bolts and locks to line up correctly and provide you with that top level of security famous for.  The sheds are the heaviest on the market, with sheds weighing over 76 stone you need a decent base just to take the weight!

The customer must check with the relevant authorities prior to ordering their unit. Asgard will take no responsibility if after taking delivery a customer is asked remove the unit due to local authority regulations.

Why does the shed base need to be bigger than the shed?

Metal sheds feature an integral metal base so can be bolted down to a concrete base as an added security measure. If the shed base is built to the exact size of the shed and you attempt to bolt the shed down, the impact of the drill can cause the concrete below to break and crumble.

*Please note if you wish to secure/drill your optional ground anchor to the floor you will require a minimum 100mm depth of concrete. Tarmac and paving stones are not suitable. We do not fit or supply ground anchors.
