Assembly FAQ’s

If I purchase a carport can you install it?

This depends on your location. We can Install our Formsteel carports throughout the Waikato and Auckland areas as well as covering the Bay of Plenty region. Our Installers are more than happy to travel so contact us and we will see if we can help!

Will you install my Garden shed if I haven’t purchased from you?

Unfortunately no, we only install garden sheds that we sell. Some garden sheds can be difficult to install. If you are wanting your shed installed it is best to order your shed and install with us as a complete package – a one stop shop!

Does my site need to be level for my garden shed Install?

Yes. Level foundations are the most important part to a successful garden shed install and trouble free shed. If the area isn’t level parts won’t line up properly and doors can be become difficult to open and close. If your area isn’t level our installers can do this, there may be an additional cost depending on how much work is involved or whether they need any materials. If you aren’t sure send us a photo of your area and we will let you know. Otherwise check out this article on garden shed base preparation.

How much room do you need to assemble my garden shed?

We will install your garden shed on site and therefore our installers do need room to work. The Assembler usually requires at least 500mm on all sides of the shed. If you are wanting to position one or two sides against a fence this isn’t usually a problem as long as there is plenty of space to install in front, they will build your shed and push it into position. Contact us to discuss your site if you aren’t sure.

Do you Assemble on site?

Yes! our items can be shipped NZ wide in kitset pack. If you order an assembly the installer will collect the kitset pack, deliver it and install it onsite.
