Rated 3 out of 5 by Granitehibby More Than Simple Assembly Required
This item is essentially just 7 planks of wood, a bag of wood screws and some metal spikes! There's no pre-drilled holes or markings on the wood to help construct the thing together. The wood's decent enough quality (for what it's intended to do), the screws are ok, the spikes were not brilliant - some of the screw holes in the metal hadn't been opened up properly etc.
To build this, you'll need a cordless power drill/screwdriver, tape measure & pencil. Hammer & spirit level needed for positioning the base correctly.
Once constructed, this item does what it's supposed to do. However, had I known what was in this product, I'd have probably just bought some lengths of wood and constructed one myself.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nicknackpaddy22 Really not worth buying
7 lengths of timber cut to size. There are no pre-drilled holes, so be prepared to spend a lot of time drilling and marking. Also there are only 3 centre bars, where the shed I purchased had 5 bars, meaning that 2 bars were unsupported, had to make a lot of changes to this frame. Only one screw supplied to attach bars to frame, not that long too, so added extra longer screws. This was supposed to be a quick solution, but this is not the case.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Cockneyred Not 8x6!
8 feet long, 5'10 wide. You won't get an 8x6 shed on this. Also, the wood was rotten so the base split simply by putting the shed floor down let alone the rest of it. Spikes are v poor also, really wouldn't bother with this. You're much better with a slab base if you want a base for your shed. My contractor said nobody in their right mind would install on one of these

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nastynigel Excellent shed base
Asda sells this shed base up to half the price of some shed companies.it is an easy way to level the shed and keep it off the ground preventing wet rot.
Easily put together with the screws provided and once pegs are in the ground levelling with a decent spritlevel is easy as well as squaring off. Excellent product at a good price.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Benign Reasonable quality but smaller than claimed.
Not quite the 8ft x 6ft it claims to be. I had to modify the floor of my new shed to get it to match the base. Also the spikes tend to twist as they are driven in making it difficult to screw them to the battens. Otherwise it seems to do the job.

Rated 1 out of 5 by rockers58 put a proper concrete base down !
2 of the timbers were warped, on reflection I should have phoned and returned the base, one was warped by one inch, had to take take the whole thing up and cut slots to try and straighten out the bent ones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by roythehat good
very good, arrived as quoted, the only draw back was it was a little short, i had to make good, and there was not enough screws, apart from that very good

Rated 3 out of 5 by tilly68 Not a great buy
Service and delivery good but the metal spikes were too short and a little flimsy.
