Thanks for the Motorbike Storage review, it looks great and we love the tool shed at the back - A great idea! Good to see two bikes in there as well. The perfect use of an Asgard Motorbike shed!

Fantastic shed, but delivery and instructions should be better Review by John Brown

Well, I got this shed in brown, and it looks great. Its SO secure, and very well made. Its absolutely solid, and it will outlive me that's for sure!

However, the delivery...
This basically involved a one man delivery, and all he did was lean the parts against the side of the house. I asked, "Any advice on putting together?", and was brusquely told, "I don't build, I don't know anything.". That was that, just a delivery man, so please ignore anyone saying how good the delivery was as that is not the case anymore.

The instructions...
Utterly useless. Faded drawings on washed out paper, virtually no words at all. Frankly the worst set of instructions I have ever seen for anything. How can you spend >£2000 on something you have to assemble yourself without instructions. Come on guys, you can do better!

Even with the above, once built it is the BEST product you can get. Much better that a concrete, wooden or any other metal shed you can buy, but sort out the instructions!

Hi

Thanks for the feedback, we have looked into the instructions issue. It seems you may have had a photocopied set - our apologies for that. A fresh copy of instructions can be downloaded from each product page if there is a problem with the ones supplied.

Ref the driver. Our delivery drivers are technically delivery only. However, that attitude is unacceptable. That individual has been dealt with through our internal procedure.

Many thanks

Extremely secure, solid and well designed shed - 5 Stars Review by Chris Ball

7 x 14 Gladiator P2 Shed (Ivory)

This it is an extremely well designed product and would thoroughly recommend it.  OK, it is expensive but this shed will, I am sure, outlive the purchasers, sad I know but we are thinking of including it in our will!

The security of this shed is second to none, no external screws, the design of the very hefty doors, metal thickness and quality make this more secure than Don T’s lacquered hair.

Self-Install - two of us, myself and her indoors, took approximately 5 hours (including tea breaks and biscuits).  The only issue we had was knowing how to fit the roof seam cover and getting a bit mixed up with the internal cover strips. But after a yoga pose and yoghurt we worked it out.

It is essential that  you have a cordless screwdriver with the correct screwdriver bit.  We also had an impact screwdriver as a standby, but would not advise using it unless you want to really upset your neighbours.

 I am sure the neighbours were already saying ‘ how many screws does it take to put up a shed (actually about 542), my wife started naming them but stopped at ten when she ran out of names, the first ten screws living happily together in section A rear panel right.

The only criticism my wife has is that there is nowhere to hang curtains!

We, that is the ‘royal we’ are most impressed by the quality of the shed, or garden storage condo, as my wife calls it. Customer service were very good keeping us informed from ordering to delivery. There was a slight issue with a small amount of damage to a part caused in transit. The damaged item was replaced with delivery a few days later.

The Gladiator Plus 2 Pack Bundle , which I would thoroughly recommend. The wooden subfloor, shelving, hooks and ramp is at the same level of quality and strength as the shed.

Hi

Thank you for taking the time to review your Asgard Gladiator (Police Approved) Metal Garden, Shed. We do like to build our sheds to last, we take produce in our quality control, we don't always get it right! but we try our best. The Bundle packs do offer exceptional value for money when bought with the unit, so always worth a look.

Good product let down by lousy instructions Review by John Handscombe

Overall

Excellent product, accurately made parts, good finish, good delivery liaison and driver. Unfortunately totally let down by installation instructions (probably 1-star). Inadequate line drawings with uninterpretable blow-ups of smaller parts left our pretty-intelligent 6-man assembly team absolutely flummoxed at several stages. Not helped by basic instructions plus those for 2 extension kits. Still not sure everything is correctly assembled. This is a real case of spoiling the (£2000) ship for a happeth of tar. For goodness sake give this job to a professional illustrator and include good clear PHOTOGRAPHS of the positioning of the smaller parts.

British engineering and design at it's best ! Review by Paul

Just bought and installed a Gladiator +2.
I just have to say what a fantastic example of engineering, design and manufacture it is.
The delivery team were great and positioned the parts in the correct order for assembly.
The individual parts were very accurately manufactured and all screw holes aligned perfectly.
I fitted the hundreds of self-tapping screws with a cordless drill which I would say is a must.
The instructions were clear and straightforward.
Delivery was three weeks after placing my order online.
I recognise that these are not the cheapest metal sheds, but for quality and security they are clearly the best.

I have bought a Gladiator Plus 2.

I went to the factory and had a look at a shorter version built up. Tracy was very helpful and friendly and all my questions were answered quickly and efficiently. I was impressed by the build quality compared to other metal sheds that I have seen.

The delivery was in the week that was given at order, and at the time given when the actual delivery date was agreed. The two men that delivered it were very helpful and friendly and gave me some useful advice about assembling it as they often put them up.

It took 2 of us about 6 hours to put up without rushing. We could do in about 4/5 now that we know how! We are both engineers and were impressed with the fit of the panels and alignment of holes etc. No redrilling or forcing and bending was required to get it to fit together. Once assembled it is rigid structure.

There are a couple of points. I used 2 full tubes of Evo Stik clear all weather sealant rather than silicone as there was a probability of some dampness during assembly. No point in saving a fiver on a project like this. I may have been a bit generous with sealant but a single tube (as instructions) would not be enough. Using clear on the Green shed meant any excess does not show in the joints. I would advise buying the accessory package with the shed as it really does need the Stirling Board floor.

The only small problem was that we were short of about 10 screws, I had some suitable in stock so it was not a big problem, however it would have been very frustrating if I had not got any as we were fitting the ridge with the sealant wet. This is the reason for the loss of 1 star in overall.

I am very pleased with it and impressed with the security and build quality. I would buy another if I needed one. Service was excellent and friendly.

Well designed secure shed, don't hesitate to buy - well worth the money.

Building it yourself lets you see the niceties of the design, but think carefully about getting the company to build it - they will make it look easy.

I am a customer of Asgard and purchasing in the region of £2500 of equipment, not a substantial sale however the Customer Service I have received from Tracey has been exceptional. Clearly she is the face of the business and is promoted as such on the web. People view Asgard in the first instance pretty much the way they are treated and the Customer Service is first class. Have you given any thought to making up a Calendar with Tracey’s image on it, the face of Asgard?
Many Thanks & Best Regards

Asgard Gladiator +2 shed buying building, review and comments.


I was looking for a large wooden shed as a replacement for my old sinking leaking one. I had never heard of Asgard and had looked at a few cheaper metal sheds but could not find one as secure, complete with a base and all built from the inside.
When I came across the Asgard web site which is top notch! It gave me all the information I needed. I chose the Gladiator+2 which was a similar size to the one I was replacing. Questions were answered promptly my email.
Ordering was easy online, no problems there. I ordered it just after the concrete base was laid to the dimensions off the web site. I did read it could be 3 weeks delivery which did seem a long time, but didn't want to order before the base was complete and well dried out.
Delivery date was the only slight problem; I received a phone call only the day before to confirm delivery which was not enough notice to book time off work so had to wait another week. But when the day came for delivery the driver phoned to say he was on his way and gave me a time he would be there. They had a quick look so see the best place to put it to make it easier for me to build. They even tried to arrange it in an order of parts I would need first. I would like to say they were the friendliest, most polite delivery men I have ever met - nothing was too much trouble (Thanks to Jacko).
Building was quite easy following the supplied instructions. Being one of the largest sheds with extensions, the instructions didn't make it clear whether to build all the wall panels before fitting the roof (it does get very wobbly). I used some wood to steady it. One of the build videos just builds the rear walls and then first part of the roof - not as instructions.
Fitting the roof was the hardest part as it was very heavy and not very rigid when lifting into position, making it difficult to line up the screw holes. Once the roof was on I was a lot happier and it all came together and took shape. The doors didn't close first time even though I had the shed level but after trying different spacers (provided) under each corner (one at a time) they closed and locked.
Now it's finished it looks really nice and the electric mounting plate is a great idea. The quality finish and the way it closes is very secure and a lot better than a wooden one, with no roofing felt to replace or wood to treat. The matching hooks and purpose made shelves fit easily and are very strong.

If I could suggest improvements they would be:

• Clarify the instructions when building large sheds with extensions.

• Include a centre rear wall cover trim as it's the only join that doesn't seem to have one to cover screw points.
