6' x 8' Walton's Reverse Overlap Apex Wooden Shed
Service very efficient with delivery within four working days.
The assembly of the hut took just an hour and a half.
Very happy with the result; will buy from you again

As a whole I've been very impressed by both the product and the service from Walton.
Delivery was on time and fast, the only thing that would have been good to know was I didn't realise their policy prevented the deliverer to enter a customers house and as I don't have outside access to my garden I had to carry the panels through on my own.
As for the product, it is excellent for the price. Obviously if you want something sturdier they you need to pay for it, but the shed had stood up to the elements very well. The instructions have some minor typo's but are quite clear. There was an excess in the screws needed and a shortage of felt tacks so I'll need to buy a small pack on top of what they sent.
As suggested I am very happy with the product and only have some minor suggestions for improvement.

Great value for money, great delivery service
This is the second item I have bought from Waltons. This shed was ordered online and delivered 2 days later on the designated day. The delivery company phoned me up booked delivery in the day prior. I mentioned I wont be in all day but would be local, they said they would call 30 mins prior plus I asked them to leave on the drive if possible. Never had a phone call however when I got home it was laid on my drive. The shed came flat packed but the sides were complete panels. 1 person can manage lifting the sides on your own but easier with 2. Assembly was fairly straight forward, instructions are ok, was confusing what screws are used for what part but common sense sorted this. As mentioned you really need 2 people to put together initially, this is because the sides need holding together whilst you screw them. The wife or children can manage this. Once 4 walls are together you can manage on your own. Took about 1/2 day to put together, not too difficult & only need a drill bit to pilot screw holes (to stop any timber splitting) & driver bit for the screws. The shed looks great and good value for money, I think I may have paid the extra for shiplap shed next time as this shed is ok but a little flimsy, ok for the garden tools store etc but not so good if you were using as a workshop.
If you are putting this shed on a flat surface such as concrete etc then you will not need any extra bits. If you are putting this shed on uneven ground or on grass etc like I am, you will need to buy or make a base frame. I made my own out of 3"x2" timber but floor was a little springy so had to strengthen it a little, I would recommend a 4"x2" frame. If this shed was laid onto grass/dirt where the timber would be in constant contact with moisture/water I don't think the base would last long before it rotted.
All in all a great buy, delivered to your door & cheaper than anywhere else such as wickes, B&Q, ebay etc.
