Good news... A convenient PICK-A-DAY delivery service is available
We are pleased to offer you the ability to choose your preferred delivery day for this item. The below calendar indicates the dates currently available (highlighted in green) for your location. You do not need to make your date selection just yet, as you will be asked to make your choice during the checkout process.Note: Pick-A-Day availability may vary or become unavailable if other products are added to your basket too.
The design of the Shire Durham shed is classic but with the added feature of having modular side panels. This feature allows you to choose where on the shed to have the window panel in order to make best use of the available light in your garden.
The wall panels are constructed of tongue and groove cladding and supplied in modular sections. The main advantage of a modular design is that each individual panel will be small enough (in one or both dimensions) to be carried by one person and will fit through a standard pedestrian door. As a concequence the individual boards may not line up perfectly with those on adjacent panels, due to the variences in the natural timber cladding.
The roof and floor provided are made from solid sheet OSB. There will be fixtures and fittings provided along with roofing felt and full instructions.

Our product specifications are given in good faith but can be subject to manufacturer change without notice. Should an attribute be of essense to your purchase, please feel free to contact us first for confirmation.
The Shire Durham Shed 8x6 is delivered from central UK stocks by the manufacturer. Shire's own experienced personnel undertake delivery to ensure your goods arrive in a perfect condition.
Shire operate mostly small, flat-bed trucks. If a dustbin lorry can reach your property, Shire should too. Limited access? Please call us prior to ordering to avoid a costly abortive delivery.
Unloading will take place at the kerb-side or your adjacent driveway. Vehicles will not leave the public highway. The driver, at their discretion, may be willing to carry the goods to your garden. Shire will not carry goods through or into your home, therefore you may wish to arrange some extra help privately.
Shire offer a free delivery service within Central and Southern England, as indicated by their red zone on the map below. The above postcode checker will confirm this for you.
Pick A Day Delivery
For products on '3-7 days' delivery located within the majority of Shire's free red zone, during the checkout process you will be offered a calendar which allows you to select a preferred delivery date. Shire will endeavour to deliver on the date you have chosen. You will be promptly notified in the rare event that an alternative date is necessary for logistical reasons. As BA, BN, BS, SO & SP postcodes are serviced on a 2-day (overnight) run, the actual delivery day may vary by +/- 1 day of the date chosen. The following red zone locations are excluded from the Pick A Day service; BB, BD, FY, GU, PR & PO. Note: When an installation option has been chosen, a Pick-A-Day selection will not be offered; due to additional, post-order labour scheduling.
Delivery will typically occur within the period quoted on this product. For those products outside the '3-7 days' offer, you will be given the opportunity to chose your delivery date via Shire's online booking portal; a link will be sent by text or email a day or so after order. If a date is not chosen, Shire will notify you in advance by either telephone, text or email to confirm their date of delivery.
Less frequently serviced locations such as those outside Shire's red zone, may be subject to an extended period of up to an additional 7-14 days. These distant locations include North and South-West England, Wales and Scotland.
Installation (Extended Delivery)
If an installation option is chosen the product delivery period will increase by approximately 14 days, to accommodate additional labour scheduling. Therefore, a '14 Day' self-assembly delivery will become a '28 day' installed order.
The only offshore location Shire deliver to is the Isle of Wight; PO30-41. A green zone delivery charge applies to this island.
Shire does not service the following distant onshore locations; Northern Ireland (BT) and Scottish Highlands (IV, KW, PA20-78 and PH19-44). These form the yellow zone as shown upon the lower map. All offshore locations are excluded too, examples being; Guernsey (GY), Western Isles (HS), Isle of Man (IM), Jersey (JE), Orkney (KW), Shetland (ZE) and Scottish Islands (PA & PH).
Due to additional Shire zone fees, certain distant locations can only be serviced at a surcharge (at cost). The above post code checker can confirm if a surcharge will apply.
These locations include:
Orange Zone (BH,CH,DH,DL,DT,HR,LA,NP,SR,TA,TS) at £24.00 (except 28mm+ Log Cabins at £108.00)
Blue Zone (CA,CF,LD,NE,SY) at £36.00 (except 28mm+ Log Cabins at £168.00)
Green Zone (DG,EH,EX,KA,LL,ML,PL,PO30-41,SA1-18,TD,TQ) at £48.00 (except 28mm+ Log Cabins at £264.00)
Purple Zone (AB,DD,FK,G,KY,PA1-19,PH1-18,SA19-73,TR) at £72.00 (except 28mm+ Log Cabins at £360.00)
This map offers a visual impression of the four surcharge zones. Delivery is free within the central red zone. No delivery service is available to the yellow zone.

Good and cheap shed. Clear assembling instruction. Delivered on time and in proper order. Only disadvantage - thickness of floor boards (boards 2 cm should be used instead of 1cm). (ONE GARDEN COMMENT: 20mm (2cm) thick flooring is considered very high-end/heavy-duty and beyond scope in the sense of a cost loading or value for this standard 8x6 apex shed.)
