We bought a shed from Wickes, Shires being the supplier. Overall the shed is extremely poor quality and we are very unhappy. We have had to go out and buy further materials to re-inforce the shed so it is usable. It was brought for my mother who is disabled and she requires the shed to be able to put her mobility scooter in. Without our modifications we have completed my mother would be left without a shed for her mobility scooter meaning it would affect her day to day living and isolate her. This has also affected her financially as she has had to buy further materials to ensure the shed is safe for purpose.  We noted: - Broken pieces of wood which we had to either replace or fix. Several pieces. - The base was not structurally safe and you could not stand on it let alone hold a mobility scooter so we had to buy more wood to enforce the flooring   -Several holes in the wood work all around the shed -Back right door not lining up and not sitting flush with eachother due them being different lengths  -Roof was poor material and different lengths which meant it didn't meet up in the middle.  -Felt roofing was ripped. This meant we had to buy new felt and patch it up. Meaning different colours of felt.  - peices of wood which were bowed and not straight. - split wood on quite a few areas. As soon as we would put it together it would split using your screws provided.  Overall we are extremely disappointed with the service and materials we have recieved from Wikes and Shires. My mother tried to phone shires and they kept putting the phone down on her. We have called Shires and Wickes several times and kept getting the answer nothing can be done. Do not buy from either of these companies!!!
