Why Choose Australian Made Garden Sheds

Why Choose Australian Made Garden Sheds


Choosing a garden shed was an easy task up until about 5 years ago. Since then, imported garden sheds have started to appear on the Australian market and as a result, there is a lot more options to look out for now.

Let me explain. I am not a protectionist myself, I believe there is room for imported goods and I am a fan of the whole ‘global economy’ idea. However, when it comes to garden sheds,

Australian made Garden sheds are regarded as the best of the best worldwide

… so why would you want to go into a hassle with an imported shed when you can access the Australian made sheds at affordable prices?

Guess what?

Americans, Europeans, and many other countries around the world pay premium prices for Australian made garden sheds as they are considered to be the finest quality out there. The same garden sheds are very easily accessible for us here in Australia and we don’t have to transport them halfway around the globe to get them.

Here is the thing, overseas manufacturers are trying to copy what the Australian big guns do, but it could potentially take them decades to catch up.

We all hear the horror stories of imported sheds

  • leaking all over the place
  • blown away by the first breeze
  • Panels and parts don’t fit or line up
  • No pre-drilled holes
