Following 2 years of industry research and development, the Lotus 8×6 Metal Shed and Mobility Scooter Store is here to offer you the perfect home for your mobility scooter and all manner of garden tools. This metal shed is expertly designed and built from 0.3mm high-tensile, hot-dipped galvanised steel, with a heavy-gauge galvanised steel frame and base rails, ensuring outstanding long-term protection for your mobility scooter and valuable garden equipment. Supplied with a superb 15-year anti-rust guarantee, this garden shed features a traditional apex roof and a premium anthracite paint finish, which make for a smart, contemporary appearance.

There’s no need to worry about maintaining this shed’s good looks, either, for it is near-maintenance free, saving you money and leaving you more time to do the things you enjoy. This fire-retardant metal storage shed also meets the regulations concerning non-combustible stores, so if you enjoy spending time at a caravan park, you can use it there too. You can gain very easy access to this 8×6 shed via wide, double-hinged doors which provides ample room for a mobility scooter. Once inside, you’ll find that the generous roof height makes this metal storage shed very well suited for taller garden tools too, whilst the ventilated gables ensure everything is kept in optimum storage conditions.

This scooter store is certainly designed with security in mind. The doors feature a padlock fixing (padlock not included), whilst the absence of windows keeps your valuable items completely hidden from unwanted attention. Thanks to an innovative design, this 8×6 shed is made from fewer parts than its competitors, so is far easier to assemble than other metal sheds. A user-friendly instruction manual and on-hand technical support are there to assist you, if required. You can purchase several optional extras, including a metal foundation kit, a timber floor kit, a skylight and a Hilti screw kit, which allows you to secure the shed to a concrete or paved base.

If you do not have an existing level base, you will require a Timber Floor Base Kit OR a Metal Foundation Kit. Please read the section below on choosing between the two kits. You will NOT need to purchase both. Please also note that this shed is supplied WITHOUT flooring. If you desire a floor you will need to purchase the timber floor base kit or add your own with the help of the metal foundation kit. Free delivery is available to most UK addresses.
