Site Prep and Delivery

Site Prep and Delivery

Please take a few minutes to read over this information concerning the site preparation, delivery and permits required for your new shed. It is very important the shed pad is level and accessible for delivery and placement. Please contact us if you have any questions about preparing for your new shed delivery.

Site Preparation

  • We highly recommend setting your shed on a level stone pad. 2B modified stone 3-5" thick allows the water to drain and gives a firm foundation for your shed.
  • The size of your shed pad should be 1' bigger then the shed allowing the rain to run off the shed onto the stone instead of creating a muddy river around your shed.
  • You can either dig out the grass or build a pressure treated 4x4 border to keep your stone from washing away.
  • Blocking up your shed is not recommended because they tend to shift over time and make it very difficult to keep your shed level.
  • Concrete pads are an option but in most cases are not recommended.

Delivery Information

  • Our sheds are delivered fully assembled and placed in your yard using a Shed Mover. We call this ‘no truck in your yard' delivery! It is important we have a t least 2’ clearance on both sides of the shed to access your shed pad.
  • The driver is not responsible to trim branches or move obstacles blocking the path to your shed pad.
  • Please make sure there are no trees, fences, shrubs, low tree branches, utility lines etc. preventing us from delivering your shed.
  • We have the option for an additional cost to bring your shed in a kit and build your shed on site if your yard is inaccessible to our truck and trailer.
  • If you are not sure about the accessibility of your yard, please call us and we can help you determine the best method of delivery.

Shed Permits

  • It is the customer's responsibility to apply for all the permits required in your township to place a shed in your back yard. We highly recommend checking with them before placing your order to confirm you can place the shed where you would like to. Most townships have set backs making you set the shed 10' - 25' off your property line; this varies depending on the township.
  • If you live in a development with a home owners association it's a good idea to check with them too, making sure there are no size and color restrictions that would prohibit you from getting the shed you want.
  • If you have any questions or need pictures or measurements to help get your shed approved we would be happy to assist you in this process.
