Delivery and Installation

Depending on your location you have the choice between our installation service or free delivery for self-assembly.

**Green Friday Offer 26th-28th November**

From Friday 26th until Sunday 28th November, you can order any bike shed from our range and receive completely FREE installation in Installation Zones 1 & 2. Load your shed to your cart and there’ll be no fee at checkout.

Option 1: Self-assembly (Delivery only)

Free delivery to UK (except Highlands and Islands where surcharges apply)

Please note: due to size restrictions on pallets we do not deliver 5-bike or 6-bike Slot-in units or any Vertical units in Zone 2. If you are in our Delivery Zone 2 you would therefore need to select from our Classic range (1-6 bike) or our Slot-in range (1-4 bike).

Please contact us if you live in these post codes: PA (20, 41-49, 60-78) £30.00, KA28 £90.00, IV (41-49, 51, 55, 56) £90.00, PH (42-44, 49, 50) £90.00, KW (15-17) £250.00, KA27 £105.00, BT £10.00, IM £300.00, GY £300.00, JE £300.00

EU and USA – unfortunately our products are not available in these areas.

All Brighton Bike Sheds products are delivered by courier services on standard pallets.

If you order a self assembled kit, once your order has been processed it will be booked in with a local courier (part of the UK Pallet Network) for delivery, and we’ll send you an email confirming your delivery date. The courier will deliver at between 9am and 5pm on delivery date, and will send you a text reminder on the morning of delivery. In the unlikely event that the pallet is delayed they will contact you on your mobile and also keep us aware of any hitches as they unfold so that we can keep you updated. Please rest assured that we will do our utmost to get your shed to you on the specified date.

The pallet is large and heavy and the couriers will use a pump truck to offload it as close as possible to your property. If there are unsuitable road surfaces or restricted access, you will need to unpack the pallet and manually transfer the components by hand to your property, so it might be worthwhile getting a friend or two lined-up to help!

You must ensure there is a responsible person at your property to receive your delivery on the day. If there is nobody in to receive the pallet on the specified date the courier will make every attempt to contact you to check your whereabouts. The courier reserves the right to pull the vehicle out and invoice you for a wasted journey if there is no solution on the day.

Please see below for an important update from the UK Pallet Network regarding the current HGV driver shortage:

“With the very publicised driver shortage added to a huge increase of freight (as more and more people are ordering home deliveries), many areas are experiencing delivery delays. Although every endeavour is made to deliver on the correct day the aforementioned issues across the UK may delay arrival of some goods.”

 

Lead time

We aim to deliver within 12 weeks from receipt of your order. This can vary and at periods of higher demand can extend to 14 weeks.

Option 2: Installation

Depending on your location we also offer an installation service, alongside delivery. We have three available installation zones, each with a base cost for the service. Depending on the size of your order an additional charge may be applied.

Installation zones

See below details of the installation zones and the corresponding base costs. Please read on for information regarding the volume-based surcharge.

Zone 1 — £175.00
– BN1

Zone 2 — £250.00
– AL, BR, CB, CM, CO, CR, CT, DA, EC, E, EN, GU, HA, HP, KT, IG, LU, ME, MK, N, NN, NW, OX, PO, RG, RH, RM, SE, SG, SL, SM, SN, SO, SP, SS, SW, TN, TW, UB, W, WC, WD.

Zone 3 — £300.00
– BA, BH, BS, CV, GL, IP.

Zone 4: Rest of UK
– Self-assembly only.

Volume-based surcharge

The volume of your order is calculated using the width, height and depth values of the configuration of your shed, including any selected add-ons. Orders of units 5m³ and below do not incur any surcharge.

For installs of between 5m³ and 10m³ there is an additional cost of £85, while for installs over 10m³ the additional cost is £175.

For example, installation to a postcode in Zone 2 (£250) for an item that has a total volume of 8m³ (£85) would cost £335.

How it works

If you order a product to include our installation service, you will receive an email with the date of installation, as well as instructions on how to prepare your site.

If the access is through the house (back garden install), you will need to ensure that a responsible person is at your home for the duration of the installation, which usually takes between 3 to 4 hours. If there is a side access or the shed is to be sited in a front garden, it is not essential you are at home during the installation once you have confirmed the location for the shed.

We use cordless power tools so won’t need access to your house. Any parking permits or cups of tea are gratefully received.

Lead time

We will aim to deliver/install your Brighton Bike Shed within 12 weeks from receipt of your order. This can vary and at periods of higher demand can extend to 14 weeks.

Covid-19 Protocol

We will install/deliver your Brighton Bike Shed as normal. On arrival we will confirm the position that you require the shed to be installed with you while maintaining the recommended safe distances of 2-3m. On departure we will show you the shed functions, while maintaining a 2-3m distance, and leave the keys in the lock of the shed. You may then remove and sterilise the keys. No handshake or sign off on completion will be necessary during this outbreak.

  • What is the installation procedure?

    COVID-19 UPDATE, PLEASE READ FAQ1 FOR POLICY DURING INSTALLATIONS

    If you order a product to include our installation service, you will receive a confirmation email with an installation date. We will deliver and install you shed on the same day, in the location that you have cleared and made ready. Installations start between 8am and 4pm, and you will receive an email notification from us when the team are on their way on the day.

    If the access is through the house (back garden install), you will need to ensure that a responsible person is at your home for the duration of the installation, which usually takes between 3 to 4 hours. If there is a side access or the shed is to be sited in a front garden, it is not essential you are at home during the installation once you have confirmed the location for the shed with us. On completion we will post the set of keys for the bike shed through your letterbox. We use cordless power tools so won’t need access to your house. Any parking permits are gratefully received.

  • Do you offer free site visits?

    We conduct all initial advice and estimates by checking your emailed images and dimensions. We have found that the simple dimensions of our products make this relatively easy and we don’t ever encounter problems with subsequent fitting on site.

    If you require advice selecting a product please email us with measurements, photos, sketches, postcode etc, as with a bespoke enquiry and we’ll email you an estimate. In either case, we will be able to offer a product that is ideal for your space and your storage needs.

    Also, if you need advice on how to prepare your site for the installation we’ll be happy to help with that too. Just send us images of the site and we can offer advice based on our experience.

  • Does a Brighton Bike Shed require a hard level base?

    There are three types of base that our sheds can happily live on: a level concrete slab, an area already paved, or eco-base.

    1. The first type (concrete slab) is the best base for any of our bike sheds. It is especially suitable for our Vertical units. The slab should be the same dimensions (W x D) as the shed footprint. It should be 100mm thick and level.
    2. The second type (already paved area) is fine for our smaller units (Classic 1-6 bikes, and Slot-in 1-4 bikes). Most front garden locations are already paved with a slight slope for drainage, and we mainly install Classic sheds in front gardens on existing paving without issues. If the paving is partial (some soil areas), then it should be extended with more paving or concrete to include the whole footprint of the shed.
    3. Eco-base is a grid/honeycomb layer that is designed to be filled up with shingle. Classic and Slot-in sheds can be installed on eco bases. We recommend that the eco base is laid on sharp sand over a well compacted and level sub-base that is 100mm thick. The eco base should be firmed up and level prior to filling with shingle and ideally would be finished around 25mm above ground level.

    Our sheds all include a sturdy timber floor which sits on rubber pads. These pads can be adjusted so that the floor panel is firm before installing the walls.

    We do not install concrete bases, so you would need to arrange this prior to the bike shed being delivered/installed.1
