Lot of steps to put it together but well worth the effort. The only issue I have would be the floor. Not good to put heavy items on. It tells you that in the brochure. I use mine a a garage for my golf cart. I put down 3 pieces of 1/4" HardieBacker under the tire tread areas to spread out the load and it work great.
they will beat another internet price I found by 10.00, saved 60.00.
no shipping fees.
Great looking shed.
Shipping was within 1.5 weeks and driver was really a great guy.
Salesperson I spoke to was really helpful and had answers to all my questions.
None so far and do not expect any either.
Starting off, Competitive Edge has THE best prices to be found. Second, Free and Fast Shipping directly to your door.
This shed is a solidly made product made with precision. If you have/had any problems putting it together it is because you did not have a flat level base. You should spend ample time working on whatever type of base you are constructing to make sure it is flat and level. If you do this the construction will go very smoothly. Instructions were clear, laid out well, and easy to follow. I put the entire shed together by myself in about 6 hours including a break for lunch. I did have my daughter (13) assist with holding the skylight pieces in place while I screwed them in place.
I highly recommend this shed! High quality craftsmanship that should last longer than the 10 year warranty.
Received my shed and everything is good. I would have liked the longer shelf to be wider but, over all I love it.
Maybe for the future of Lifetime Sheds, you can display how some sheds are being used with photos on your web site.
Maybe have a contest for the best use of your product/decorated and put the photos on your web site. Customers can send in photos of their shed decorated and can win money or a gift card or free accessories for their shed.
I am not using the shed as your typical shed but for an artist studio!
We really like the shed and figured out how to put it together but we feel the instructions are very inadequate. Would be great to have an instruction DVD included along with a more detailed written instructions manual rather than just the pictures. I see after having put it together also that there is a parts list online but it would be nice if there was one shipped with the shed.
I put the shed up on my newly poured concrete slab by myself and everything turned out great. I would recommend getting help installing the doors.
the shed is very nice, however, the directions were in pictures only. there should have been the written word along with the pictures. it would have made it much easier to understand. when I looked at the instructions on line , it was stated in words as to what to do--- which made it much clearer.
First, I want to say how professional the service has been with Competitive Edge Products. From the order to the delivery, attention to detail has been outstanding. Second, the item purchased Lifetime 6405 8 x 10 storage shed was exactly as advertised. The installation was a "snap" no pun intended. Third, I would recommend your company to anyone interested in a similar product or any other product offered.
We really like the shed. We spent about 6 weeks researching different types of sheds, wood, metal and vinyl. We landed on vinyl because of cost and no maintenance.
We then looked at various manufacturers of these sheds and landed on this one. The sturdy construction with steel reinforcing is what sold us. We have extreme temperatures here and having the extra support was important to us.
The instructions were very well written and easy to understand. I especially appreciated the instructions for various types of foundation that could be made for the shed. I was having trouble finding what we could do on our property and ended up with a very simple design that was one of the ones proposed in the instructions.
I was able to do most of the shed by myself but the walls are easier with help. Follow the instructions carefully and it goes together really well. The only part of the instructions I felt could be better are the ones showing the dead bolts. I figured it out eventually, but more detail would be good on the instructions.
I have showed pictures of our final product to friends and they have all asked if it was a picture form an advertisement.
I would also say I was really impressed with Competitive Edge. They not only had a very competitive price, but we ordered it on a Saturday and it arrived on Tuesday.
We are very happy with this shed and have already recommended it to a couple friends here in town.
We've always wanted a shed and shopped around until we found Lifetime Sheds. You cannot beat the price paid for this quality product. And, customer service is great!
I was pleased with my order. It took less than two weeks for delivery to my door.
It went together much easier than I would have expected. It does snap together easier when the temperature is below 80 degrees. I started early in the morning and by noon it was getting near 100 degrees. The plastic gets soft at that temperature and it does not snap into place quit as easily. Other than that it all went very well. I put it together by myself with the exception of the roof ridge pieces. My neighbor came over and helped me with those.
Instructions were fairly straight forward. Took about 6 hours total time to put everything together. No major issues during construction. Looks great and frees up some garage space. Just purchased a Lifetime 130 gallon storage box.
Hurricane Irene has just left our area shed is still standing. It took me and my wife 5 hr. to put it together. Not a drop of water was to be found in side the shed. I called lifetime tech people to get help with the directions only two times, I never put up something like this before. They explained just how to read and get organized and it went up and we like it. Looks cool my wife likes the window, I like the size of the doors. I wont say its hurricane proof but it handled some strong winds. Make sure you build a platform to have a level surface to build on you wont be sorry. Its there in the directions. I used 2 x 4s and 3/4" plywood, all pressure treated with a vapor barrier placed on the 2 x 4s then the plywood on top. Do not use nails screws are a must do not forget shims to level the platform. Guys be calm and do not yell at your wife,(I owe my wife dinner). You will get frustrated along the way if your a novice like me. Stick with the directions and you will overcome. I called around and people wanted 500.00 to install this shed. That was all the motivation I needed to do it my self. Oh and have fun.
Purchased 2 of these, order was shipped and delivered promptly. We put both up over the weekend and they look awesome. Product is of nice quality and fairly easy to assemble. Like others here said, follow the instructions. Thank you!
I really like this shed. It looks very attractive and is quite functional. It also comes with some nice accessories and touches such as skylights for light and a battery operated light. Very well thought out. It does take a while to build but so do most sheds.
The building arrived quicker than I thought it would. No missing pieces and extra hardware. It was not as easy to put together as advertised as the side panels took considerable force to snap into the floor pieces. I guess this is a good thing though because they should stay in place. Upon completion of the wall and roof pieces, I had to make a considerable adjustment to the base to get the doors lined up even though I took great pains to make sure the base was level and square before assembling the building. Now that it is complete, it is sturdy and very functional. I was able to get all my lawn care equipment in it as well as our bicycles. Overall it is a good value for the money.
I wanted to say thanks for the product. I ordered the shed on 3/29 and it was already delivered to Fargo, ND on Thursday 4/1. So I’m very happy with the customer service and speed of shipping on this purchase.
just put together the plane teeter totter, cant wait for the kids to use it. Have not put together the shed or the the jungle gym yet
Easy assembly for two people. Has been up for almost six months, has held up well to heavy rain and wind storms. Great color, blends nicely with house.
Hello, Thank you for a great purchase experience on eBay. Not all sellers are like this. I also wanted to say this shed was easy to set up.
I purchased this product to try to get our backyard more organized. We had an installer from the manufacturer assemble it for us after having a concrete block poured. The shed is very robust, and looks very nice and helps us keep things clean and organized in the backyard.
Good Morning, I purchased an 8x10 Lifetime shed from you in mid September. I was holding off on sending a review because the shed arrived so quickly that I was not ready to install it yet. I had seen the same shed ... (elsewhere online) ... but they wanted over $500 to ship it, and it would take 4+ weeks for it to arrive. I was lucky enough to find the Lifetime shed at your web site, where shipping ... took only one week for the shed to arrive. I received a call the next day to tell me how the shed would be delivered and by what carrier. The carrier called me the following day to set up the delivery and it arrived exactly when they said it would. Unfortunately, I was not ready to put the shed up until late November. But when I did, all the pieces were there, and the parts were divided into separate bags indicating if they were for shelves, or the roof, etc. It was a bit of a bear to get the walls installed and there were places in the instructions that were confusing. But after just 5 hours the shed was put together, and I am very happy with the results. Thank you, Competitive Edge Products.
I have just finished assembling your 6405 8x10 with 30 inch extension. I assembled it entirely alone, with the exception of installing the front gable, which is a tribute to the efficiency and attention to detail of your design team. After all if someone who has had a bypass and back surgery can assemble the shed without difficulty, anyone can! Maybe I should also say that I am 79 years old. It took me a week to do, but I had to fit it in between sessions of cardiac rehab and physical therapy, which took up most mornings. Needless to say, I am very pleased with the result, and it wasn't too strenuous!
I originally saw your shed ... and went on line to look at them. I Googled Lifetime Sheds and picked your company out of the many offered. I nearly have it completed and will finish the roof tomorrow. I love the product. Thanks!!!
Hello, I just wanted to say how much I love my new shed. I was so surprised at how little time it took to assemble and the look is great. I am very impressed with the ease at ordering and delivery from your company and I thank you. I will definitely keep you in my favorites list and order again when needed.
