We can unload the shed right on your foundation. There must be a clear path for us to deliver the shed to your foundation. Make sure no trees or overhangs will be in the way of a loaded delivery truck. We need at least a foot of clearance on either side of the structure for delivery; if the shed is going around any turns or angles, we will need more space. If you do not have access for a delivery truck, we can either use a shed dolly for $80. to move the shed into place or build the structure on-site for 30% of the structure cost. Contact us for more information.

Payment Terms

We accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover credit cards on our website using secure and encrypted servers. We will charge your credit card 50% of the total order on large structures like garages, sheds, and playhouses. Upon completion, the balance owed will be charged. Lawn Furniture will be charged the full amount when the order is placed. We can also accept checks or money orders.

Shed & Garage Site Preparation

We offer professional site preparation for all our sheds. Cinderblocks should only be used for 6′ and 8′ wide storage sheds. Our site preps consist of a stone pad with laser leveling, 4×4 pressure treated timbers for a neat, straight border, and 4 to 8 inches of 3/4 inch crushed stone compacted and leveled. The pad will be 12 inches wider and longer than the structure. The cost is $6.00 per square ft; $495 is our minimum charge. This price includes up to 7 inches of the slope; if the slope is more than 7 inches, add $1.00 per sq. ft. (shed size) for each additional 4″ inch drop. PLEASE NOTE !  If your shed pad goes on a slope these additional charges will be added to your invoice at the time of the delivery which can double the price of a pad. For site preparations, we also add $2.00 per mile from our location at 2441 Stumptown Rd. Bird-in-hand, PA 17505. We recommend contacting Site Preperations LLC for a second price, or if you’re doing it yourself, siteprep.com has good information on how to do it yourself.

If you opt to do the site prep yourself, please make the pad 12 inches wider and longer than the structure itself. The pad must be perfectly level. We recommend using 3/4 in. clean, crushed stone for the gravel base. We can unload the shed right on your foundation. There must be a clear path for us to deliver the shed to your foundation. Make sure no trees or overhangs will be in the way of a loaded delivery truck. Additional fees may be added to your balance if the site is not accessible with our truck and trailer. If a mule and dolly wheels need to be used, please add $80 to the balance. If anything obstructs the passage of the structure like fences, hills, trees, flowers, cars, etc., and you have to return the shed, then we will hold your deposit until all shipping and expenses are paid.

*prices apply within a 50-mile radius from our location. For a site farther than 50 miles away, contact us for a custom quote.
