As voted for by WhatShed


WhatShed review guarantee

There is just something so dependable and high quality about a good metal shed. Here at WhatShed we have put many metal sheds through their paces, but today we are kicking things up a notch by looking at the people who actually sell these metal sheds. That is right, we are doing a top 10 metal sheds retailers list with all the glitz and the glamour of an episode of Top Of The Pops from the 80’s. One thing we must say is that actually nearly all of these sites are fantastic and do what they do very well, so this was a hard list to put together. But we did give each one a fair look so you can rest assure that these are our honest opinions on who is the best metal shed retailer.

Having a vast selection of metal sheds means that Shed Store offer one of the biggest selections of all the sites on this list. They have a good range too, with some that cost just over £100 and others that are far more extravagant. The site is very easy to look around and they make it so you know the ins and outs of each metal shed very  more...

clearly. Most of the sheds offer some kind of customisation or extras which is a nice touch. The fact that they make it so easy to contact them if you have any questions is something else that makes us give them two big thumbs up, followed by a high five.

We will be honest, when we think of Waltons, we think of high quality wooden products, so we were very impressed with their selection of metal sheds. They have them in all shapes and sizes and the prices they are charging are very competitive in comparison to what the other sites are selling theirs at. The site is very simple to use and does  more...

not try to overload you with extras and customisation options, but at the same time these options are not as easily seen as they are on the Shed Store site, which is why they just beat Waltons to number 1. Still this is a fantastic site that offers some very cool looking sheds and they also have great customer service.

As well as having a great selection of metal sheds, Buy Sheds Direct also specialise in some smaller more compact, metal storage boxes as well. This is a very easy site to use and they make looking around at their different products very simple and hassle free which we like. They have a live help section, so if you do have a question you can get  more...

a quick answer online without having to actually speak to a person on the phone because let’s face it who actually wants to do that? They are not really offering many extras or other options with many of their sheds, but to be fair this can be seen as a good or bad thing depending on your point of view. We see Buy Sheds Direct as a solid site and one that you will find easy to have a look around.

Sheds.co.uk have a very wide selection of metal sheds for you to browse through. We really like how they have a good mix of basic lower cost storage sheds and more larger and expensive sheds as well. We found the site to be very easy to have a look around and each shed we had a more in depth look at had all the information we would want  more...

to know, such as if they come with a floor or not which some sites are not as always as clear with. They do offer very quick and responsive customer service as well as rather speedy delivery times so this is certainly a site that you will want to check out, we just wish that they had a few more extras and customisation options for their sheds.

Rounding off the top five of our list is Taylors Garden Buildings, which came so close to being number 4! These folks have a tremendous selection of metal sheds, propane storage, bike storage and pretty much any kind of metal storage you could need or even think of. They have various different sections where some then go into further different  more...

sections, so while the site has a vast collection of products, you are going to have to do some clicking around to ensure you do not miss something really cool. This may be a little bit more work than some people want to do and we totally get that, but if you are willing to click around here then you are going to be blown away at the selection that they have.

At first glance, it looks like B&Q only offer three metal sheds, but actually each of these sheds can be purchased in different sizes, with or without assembly service and with different extras. So while the selection may not be vast, it is by far one of the easiest and most convenient ways to purchase a metal shed that we have come across. Each shed  more...

has more than a few pictures and a detailed description as well. So again this is not going to blow you away with their selection, but if you want a quick, fair priced and easy way to get a metal shed then this is the way to do it. If they had a slightly larger selection then they would have certainly been a little higher up the list.

We really like the BillyOh range from Garden Buildings Direct, but their metal sheds section is a little on the confusing side when it comes to navigating it. Do not get us wrong, they have all the information you could possibly need as well as many different pictures, but the way they have organised this part of their site makes navigating it a bit  more...

of a pain in the rear end. It is just a little bit too busy for our liking. As is always the case with Garden Buildings Direct, the customer service is fantastic and their selection of sheds is not too shabby either. We just wish this part of their site was presented in the exact same way as their wooden sheds section is.

Wickes does not have a large selection of metal sheds, but they do have a good selection of various sizes and prices so while not large there is a good mix here. We like how they make it very clear what sheds come with a floor and what ones do not. Each of the metal sheds they have has a good detailed description as well as a few different pictures  more...

. While it may be far down on our list, there is not actually a whole lot wrong with what Wickes are doing so if you do want to purchase your metal shed from a more mainstream retailer then we are sure you will have no problems with their site.

Homebase has a very similar layout to what Wickes offer and their selection of metal sheds is also very similar. Each of the sheds they sell has a rather straightforward description which we are sure some people will really like. Some of the sheds could use a few more pictures as some only have a single image. The site is very no frills, but  more...

it is easy to look around and will not cause you any problems. They do offer some DIY advice, which will probably come in handy for those of you who are not too skilled at DIY.

Sheds World at first really dazzle you as they have an incredible selection of metal sheds on their website. But once you start to look at them you will notice that you have seen them all before and that is because while the selection here is great they do not actually stock them, themselves so you will be ordering your shed from Sheds World and then  more...

they from somewhere else. So while the site may have a lot of information about each metal shed and also show them off with plenty of pictures, we feel that their long delivery times and their less than fantastic customer service make them a site that you should think long and hard about before you actually use.
