Shed installation service
Asgard shed installation.
All Asgard sheds come with full instructions and are designed to be home assembly (more details). You may, however, choose the Asgard shed installation service to save you the time and effort of assembling yourself. Whichever decision you make, please read the following advice.
Before taking delivery of your new Asgard metal shed.
Before taking delivery, we recommend that all Asgard storage sheds be situated on a firm, flat, level base. Ideally, this should be 50mm concrete, tarmac, or flagstones (patio). You will notice all of the products on this website site have a "base size", this is the minimum level base size we feel is appropriate for each product. A firm, flat base will ensure doors open cleanly and will make assembly of the units much easier, for more information please see our "Why is a level base important" page. Here is a quick reference list of recommended shed base sizes for each Asgard shed.
The location of your shed is also important to ensure the ventilation system works as designed. Please ensure your shed is suitably away from plant life and walls to minimise shed condensation. For more information, please click here.
Please note, if your base isn’t suitable to build on when the Asgard shed installation teams arrive and you ask to proceed against our advice, you may be asked to sign a disclaimer.

Why does the shed base need to be bigger than the shed?
Asgard metal sheds feature an integral metal base so can be bolted down to a concrete base as an added security measure. If the shed base is built to the exact size of the shed and you attempt to bolt the shed down, the impact of the drill can cause the concrete below to break and crumble. More information is available here.
*Please note if you wish to secure/drill your optional ground anchor to the floor you will require a minimum 100mm depth of concrete. Tarmac and paving stones are not suitable. Asgard does not fit ground anchors.
Instructions for fitting a ground anchor can be found here.
Asgard Sheds & Planning Permission.
Asgard sheds do not normally require planning permission. However, there may be exceptions such as in a conservation area or in certain London boroughs. The customer must check with the relevant authorities prior to ordering their unit. Asgard will take no responsibility if after taking delivery a customer is asked to remove the unit due to local authority regulations. Find out more here.
