Who are the best kitset shed companies in New Zealand?

Best kitset shed companyResearching the right shed company to go with for your project can be overwhelming! One quick Google search will reveal that there are a plethora of kitset shed providers in New Zealand.

So how do you figure out who is the best company to contact?

In this blog, we look at several well-known companies that provide kitset sheds across New Zealand, and what each of them offers.

While it can be difficult to gauge who the best companies are at first glance, reviews are a good way to find out whether a company is credible and aligns with what is important to you.

Most businesses will have a Google listing that will often have numerous reviews to showcase the experience others have had with that company — both good and bad. While reviews and customer testimonials are helpful, it is best to do your own research, think critically about each design and try to take price out of the equation. It is easy to focus on the cheapest options but very rarely does cheapest equal best.

There are several key factors to think about when finding the best kitset shed provider for your project:

Materials used: What is the quality of the materials like? What is most durable? Is the timber wet? Is the cladding quality suitable for my location? How thick is the steel?

Engineering: Is this shed designed specifically for my site? Can it withstand the snow and wind loadings? Will it be able to support the weight of extra attachments like solar panels etc?

Design: Is the shed design suitable for my intended use? Is it birdproof? Will it have apex braces and knee braces? How long will my shed last? Is rust going to be an issue?

Service: What is the communication of the company like? How fast do they respond? How long does it take to get quotes and other information? Is the salesperson knowledgeable?

Service is a key indicator of the competency of the company, if communication is poor, information is not provided in a timely manner, and keen interest is not displayed in your project in the initial research phase, how will the delivery and installation of your shed go? Promises are easy, execution is sometimes not so simple.

These are several questions that when answered, will give you a good idea of which company is best suited for you.
