General FAQ’s

What happens if my item is damaged/missing parts?

Occasionally items get damaged during freight or our factory misses packing a part. If the item has been damaged we must be notified ASAP and within 7 days of delivery so we can claim insurance and send you a replacement. If your pack is missing a certain part notify us ASAP and we will send the missing parts directly to your address.

Can I return my item?

Once you have ordered your item it then becomes yours! If you have decided it is not quite what you want any more please contact us ASAP and we may be able to stop your order. However, if it has already been manufactured the item is then yours. You are able to return the item but you will have to pay a restocking fee of 10-25% of the purchase price. The reason being is all the products at Sheds and Shelters are made on demand, this is so you can get exactly what you want with different colours and modifications.

Do you ship to my town?

Yes!! We deliver NZ wide! Our items are freighted by PBT or Mainfreight where depots are located in Northland, Auckland, Bay of Plenty, Waikato, Hawkes Bay, Taranaki, Manawatu and Wellington in the North Island and Nelson, Canterbury, Otago and Southland in the South Island. You can either collect from your nearest freight depot or most of the time your product can be home delivered to your address. Please check each product individually or give us a call!
