Collection of your Design A Shed product (Monday to Friday 9 am to 4:30 pm)
All of the products that you purchase through us can be collected from our Fairfield factory outlet at no charge.
Most of our Cubby and pet house products will fit onto a standard 6x4ft trailer (no cage) or bigger. We will forklift the item onto the trailer for you and you will need to supply rope (not jockey straps) to tie it down securely. If you are purchasing a shed or large cubby with elevation kit and slides, please check with us for the dimensions and discuss appropriate transport. Usually either a tray truck or tandem car trailer will be satisfactory.
These are examples of cubbies flat packed and ready to load.Note the floor of the cubby doubles up as a 'pallet'
Please note that we do not have storage facilities. Purchases must be collected within 7 days of completion.
A $10.00 per day storage fee will apply thereafter. We thank you for your understanding.
Delivery of your Design A Shed cubby:
Melbourne Metro Deliveries: From $190 (door-to-door) (depending on suburb)
Interstate: All of our deliveries are made with a reputable freight carrier (Toll NQX).
They only deliver to their depots. Contact us for details on (03) 9489 4377.
We regret that we cannot organise door to door deliveries outside of Victoria.
In many cases, especially if you reside outside of the major capital cities,local knowledge will be needed in order to ensure a competitive, quality quote and a local carrier may be much cheaper.
You are quite welcome to obtain your own quotes from a local transport operator, we can supply you with the package dimensions. We will work with your freight people happily.
Freight rates: Feel free to contact us to get an accurate rate as cubby model and options (such as elevation kits, or slides) will impact the freight.
Special requirements regarding Melbourne Metropolitan Delivery:
It is important to realise that, in most instances, you will be receiving a very large item, usually in excess of 200kgs. Thus to accept delivery of your product you will need at least 2 people capable of hand unloading it from the delivery van. In most cases the driver will be quite happy to assist but they do reserve the right to refuse to hand unload due to Occupational Health and Safety Concerns.
Deliveries will normally be made during business hours only.
Important. Local and Interstate deliveries:
Before you accept delivery and sign the receipt docket, please ensure that there has been no damage sustained during transit. If, in the unlikely event that your product has been severely damaged by the carrier, then we ask that you do not accept the delivery. It helps us to be able to fix the damage and resend the cubby at no additional cost to you or us if the carrier is held responsible. However, often minor damage can be easily fixed by us sending you a part. Feel free to call us if you are unsure of what to do on (03) 9489 4377.
Installing your Cubby, Shed or Pet House:
If you reside within the Melbourne Metro area, in some cases we can provide an installation service. This may depend on our current workload and the distance to your home.
We are unable to provide an installation service on 1.2m or 1.5m elevation kits.
All of our products are supplied to you in prefabricated panel kit form, along with all the hardware you need. All you need is a cordless drill and someone to hold the panels in place while you drill. A standard cubby can be easily erected by two adults within 2 hours. Sheds may take more time depending on their size.
Elevation kits of 1.2 and 1.5m are required to be dug and concreted into the ground to a depth of 600mm.
