My rental house in in an area that has cycle thefts. The metal garden shed I used to have had a foot through it and some expensive cycles stolen so I needed a secure store to regain confidence.
I was impressed with the video and the Police design mark, so ordered the large cycle store.
The day the store arrived was on time and the team kindly lifted the old shed out of the way to go on the existing slab base. The guys were very good despite the not so great weather being around Xmas time.
I am very pleased with the store and so are my seven tenants some of who regularly cycle to work. The inside has plenty of room including shelves and custom places to prop and hang the bikes - well thought out and designed.
I have already had other landlords ask where I got the store from and am delighted to recommend Asgard to them.

Many thanks for the great photo and superb review. Glad you liked the video, it was tense making it, just in case we failed the Loss Prevention test.. but we passed!

Really good to hear the delivery team were on time and great news they were happy to help with the old shed move.

Great review, many thanks Andy

Having just moved into a new house with no garage, we needed somewhere to store all our tools and 2 bikes. We wanted something really secure but good to look at. This 8-bike shed, in the colour of brown really fits the bill. It's strong, secure and easy to use. We are absolutely delighted. Thank you.

Thank you for your shed review, Mr Lowe - We agree the Brown Gladiator Shed looks great in your garden.

Many thanks

Will be finished tonight ran out of daylight but will get some pics to you over the weekend. Easy to build even on my own

Have a few updated pics to send over the weekend, insulated and boarded with electric and lighting added

Thanks for the photo Steven - your new GIANT Asgard bike shed looks really smart and I see a nice flat base to put it on - the key to a successful build! I Can't wait to see the additional custom options!

And a self build?? a unit of this size is remarkable! Asgard always recommends a 3 man team for these... they are HUGE!

Thanks

Fantastic 8-bike metal shed Review by Juan

After our old insecure wooden shed rotted away and had to be replaced, we opted for the Asgard Cycle Storage x8 metal shed (also called the 'Gladiator Cycle Unit' on our delivery note and 'Gladiator Motorcycle' on our assembly instructions). Here are our thoughts:
DELIVERY: 9-week lead time, but we were told about this at the outset and considered the wait worth it in terms of getting the right shed.
Towards the end of the 9-week period it looked as if I was going to have to swap my days at work to receive the delivery, but after a couple of phone calls it ended up being a day that was more convenient.
ASSEMBLY: we opted for self-assembly in order to save the substantial assembly cost.

It took us a lot longer than the 2 hours that apparently the fitters take (if that's how long it takes them I take my hat off!) - more like a whole day with 2 people.
You definitely need 2 people some of the time, to hold up the corner pieces until they stand up on their own,
and to put the roof sections on. It was fine doing it ourselves: a long day, but satisfying, and the instructions were very good on the whole (with just a query needed to confirm that the roof joint strips are fitted just with silicone).
You definitely need a power tool for all the screws except the door hinges. The shed sat really well on our concrete base, with all the holes lining up pretty neatly.
QUALITY OF ASSEMBLED SHED: seems excellent quality in terms of anti-rust galvanised finish, anti-theft robustness, ventilation, rain- and snow-shedding apex roof etc.

Also very good internal space and nice touches like metal channels to cover up the sharp screw ends, a ramp by the front doors, plastic wedges of different thicknesses supplied in case the base isn't quite level...
We also think it's pretty attractive in our garden, blending in well - at least with the green colour we chose (see photo).
OVERALL VERDICT: not cheap, but it feels like a very good investment which will be maintenance-free and will provide peace of mind for our bikes and gardening stuff.

Reply from Asgard

Juan - wow great review and picture. Yes, the 9 week delivery time was back in 2018 - we were super busy and just could not get our sheds made quickly enough - thanks for your patience. A days build for this bike shed ... tbh thats quite a long time... slow and steady wins the race though!
Asgard installation crews take around 90 mins at the most to build these btw! but they have made .. rather a lot of these!
Power tool / driver yes!!! 100% you must use one or you will never finish!

Great review,

Thanks Andy

Solid & Secure Review by Chay Keogh

I ordered this after quite a bit of research. The product is as good as the website suggests.
Solid construction and does the trick of holding my five bikes, plus helmets, shoes and servicing equipment. Paid for install and well worth it.
The two fellas were extremely courteous and had it built in less than 2 hours. I know that would have taken me at least a day and half.
Two small watch outs - arranging delivery was easy but I hadn't considered I would need to fit in with other scheduled deliveries.
It wasn't a problem, just not what I was expecting. The chipboard sub floor is also a little oversized on the cut and doesn't sit completely flush as it doesn't allow for the base pins/screws sticking out (hence losing a star).

Reply from Asgard

Hello and thanks for the picture review - The bike racks look great in these bigger bike shed, they free up lots of floor space, allowing you to use the bike shed as a maintenance garage in the winter months.
The wooden subfloor (designed to protect the integral metal floor) is front and back sized - so the poor fit is due to a backward install - just swap the front and back floor panels around and they will fit perfectly!

Thanks

Firstly, this is a superb bit of kit!

We recently moved house and in the process forfeited a garage in order to gain more internal space, but this left us needing storage for 6 bikes.
I came across the Asgard sheds and decided this would provide the solution we needed.
We went for the ‘cycle storage x8’ shed in brown, which is sized at approx 2.2m x 2.7m.


Firstly a few minor negatives BUT these do not affect the actual unit quality itself.....
- there was no call on the day by the driver to confirm the expected delivery yime, despite being told this would happen.
- there was no call from Asgard staff to confirm the delivery date, as it drew close, and formally arrange the delivery
- an incorrect panel was sent and, due to it being almost identical to the correct panel required, wasn’t spotted until the shed was 40% erected. The replacement was sorted quickly after a little firm persuasion. I had no doubt Asgard would sort the problem, but the service was not initially understanding of the immediacy of our requirement.
- the bike rack was missing from the original delivery. After reading a few other reviews, this seems to have happened on a number of occasions. When I chased this up, I was told that I hadn’t ordered it. I had to explain that the bike rack was included within the price/spec, and Direct the staff member to the spec on their website to check. So be aware of this if you do order.
It’s a minor quibble but irritating at the time.
- the panels were delivered loose within the delivery van. This was not how I was told it would be delivered. The Asgard transport manager had told me that the shed parts would be delayed feed within a basket container that could be wheeled up the drive to unload. The upshot of all this was that some of the panels were scratched due to the loose storage in transit. Asgard have since provided some touch up paint so I am happy with that.

Onto the unit itself and it is positives all the way!
- the construction is superb.
- every hole for screw fitting lines up perfectly. It was a pleasure to put together and very straightforward.
- the locking mechanism appears incredibly robust and instills confidence.
- the unit looks far better in our garden than I ever imagined. My wife is fully approving of the appearance, which is important as I know she had concerns over a large brown metal box being erected in the garden being a potential eyesore. Thankfully no such problems!
- Lot’s of space inside for bikes, racking systems etc. With a bit of creative thinking you will be able to neatly store A LOT of gear in here.
- I have elevated one bike off the floor using a floor to roof bike stand, which makes even greater use of the storage capacity and illustrates some options you may want to explore when considering how many bikes you need storage for.

To summarise, I’m really happy with my Asgard bike garage. It is an impressively secure and robust product and well worth the investment. For the final step in security I am getting an alarm sensor installed to link to our house alarm system. I can barely think what else I could do to better protect my bikes.
To echo what others have said, “I can sleep easy at night”

TOP TOP PRODUCT!!

Reply from Asgard

Brilliant, super detailed review - exactly what we like!

Our lack of a call on the day of delivery is poor - several customers on that day received no calls - that driver is no longer with us.
The wrong panel has also been attributed to the same load/delivery day - that driver is no longer with us.
All Asgard sheds are caged and wrapped for protection and ease of transport - any lack of packaging is again this is down to one errant load.

All the positive stuff is great though!! The hard bits we got right!

Thanks for the great review!

Having used all the space in our shed, and without a garage, I recently started looking for alternatives to sheds.

A google search brought up Asgard’s. after a bit of research I decided these were the ones to go for!

I ordered the largest bike shed to hold 4 bikes, and also lots of equipment for work. There’s plenty of room for bikes and other garden tools etc. In fact it’s almost become a small garage for me.

The quality is second to none. Very very few issues. I just had a small bend in one panel that Steve the delivery driver sorted for me.

I put it up with the help of a couple of family members and we had it up in 2 1/2 hours. We were really impressed with accuracy of the alignment. It really is well ‘engineered’ . Your best printing the instructions from the website though. As the instructions supplied aren’t as detailed. We stupidly forgot to put the ramp in. So it was a bit of a gaff trying to slot it under the unit after! We got there in the end!

Steve, the delivery driver was brilliant. Very helpful, he gave loads of advice and even put a few screws in for us to get us going! He earnt his cup of tea! I hope the team reading this will pass on our thanks to him. He works hard!

It is certainly very secure, I feel comfortable leaving £4000 worth of bikes in there, plus £3000 worth of equipment for my business.

The only thing I would like to see is a way to keep the doors open, they can shut with the wind when your inside tinkering! Perhaps in future the designers will add some sort of hook for the doors.

All in an a song product, thoroughly recommended!

Great Bike Storage Shed review - great to hear our delivery drivers are doing what they should! We don't believe in drop and run deliveries!

As these units are Police Approved/ Secured By Design - you can be sure you have a decent level of security for your bikes and work tools.

Thanks for the review

Andy
