There is significant confusion when it comes to garden sheds in Australia. You might be wondering … what do you mean? How do you know and some other similar type of questions, right?
And that is exactly what I mean…
Most people do not even know there is a huge difference between the products that are available on the market and there is hardly anything done to distinguish these products.
As the largest online retailer of garden sheds in Australia, cheapsheds.com.au receives phone calls every day, inquiring how our quality garden sheds are different from what they bought from their local hardware store or shady online sellers and ended up throwing in the bin.
You see, I was in the same situation some years ago, I bought a garden shed kit that I had to throw away due to its inferior quality and that inspired me founding a shed retailer company, that only stocks high quality shed kits.
That is how cheapsheds.com.au was founded. You can read more about us here>> Cheap Sheds Story
Since then over the years more and more imported sheds appeared on the market (mostly from China) and these products are fundamentally different from the Australian-made kits.
Retailers of the Chinese import sheds are working hard to make the origin of the product less and less obvious so consumers often have no idea they are purchasing a Chinese-made garden shed.
I recorded a video with Kris Ross from Absco and this shows you what to look out for:
On one of our recent trips to check out some products overseas we were shocked and the designs of some products and we shared our experience and photos in the following article: https://blog.cheapsheds.com.au/beware-of-a-dodgy-display/
It is definitely worth checking out to know what to look out for when browsing the displays in stores.
