Mike, Colchester, Essex, CO4, 6x8 Greenhouse 101, 28th October 2012
Dear Summer Garden Buildings
I have been really pleased and impressed with the service, installation and quality of the shed that I ordered from your company.
The person who dealt with the telephone order was really helpful, the delivery date was easy to arrange around my work commitments and the installation blokes were really professional and accommodating.
Thank you and I would not hesitate to recommend your company in future.
The reviews on your website are so good, you always wonder if they are truly independent! From my experience, I can vouch that they are reflective of the service that you provide.
Very best wishes
Zara, Watford, Herts, WD19, 6x4 Transverse Shed 12, 25th October 2012
I felt I had to e-mail you to thank you for your courtesy in every department regarding the ordering, delivery and erection of my summerhouse.
Everyone I spoke to or had contact with was extremely polite, efficient and helpful and my summerhouse was delivered on the promised date and time. Your employee who erected the summerhouse did so with the minimum of fuss, was very courteous and very tidy in his workmanship.
I am extremely pleased with the result and look forward to spending many hours relaxing and reading in my own little space!!
I wonder if I might ask you if the summerhouse ever needs sealing or painting at all to preserve the wood.
I will not hesitate to recommend you should any of my friends or colleagues require a summerhouse or similar.
Jean, Havant, Hampshire, PO9, 8x6 Apex Summerhouse 040, 11th October 2012
Thank you for the speedy delivery of my 6x4 lean to greenhouse. I ordered it on the sunday and it was delivered on the wednesday - may i add we live in the highlands not far from the isle of skye !

Just wanted to drop a quick email further to my Ebay feedback. My Greenhouse is now erected and looking absolutely fabulous!!! I am so happy with my purchase and what a bargain! I have never had a greenhouse before and I just can't wait till early next year now to get some thing growing. However have just planted a few lettuce to see if I can get them to grow over the next couple months. Anyway, I just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU, I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mel, Wyboston, Bedfordshire, MK44, 8x11 Greenhouse 62, 1st October 2012
EXTRA NOTE:- THIS CUSTOMER PURCHASED AN EX DISPLAY GREENHOUSE AT A REDUCED PRICE.
I felt I would like to write & tell you how satisfied I have been with my greenhouse & also the customer service. I ordered a greenhouse in March 2011, but after putting the order through, I decided I would prefer a larger sized one. The gentleman I spoke to was so understanding & didn't make me feel uncomfortable although I knew I must be causing extra work. A lady rang to check the time for delivery would be suitable and again I was impressed by her friendly helpful manner. I don't know if yours is a family firm, but it certainly has the feel of one.
This is the first greenhouse I have owned & I've been so pleased with it, and amazed how many plants I've been able to overwinter. I recommended you to friends & they bought the same one as me. I can assure any prospective customer that all the parts were in the box, and they will be pleased with the product.
Thank you again
Anne, Northenden, Manchester, M22, 6x8 Greenhouse 101, 26th September 2012

Just to say that your website is the most comprehensive I have come across and convinced me to purchase, however, it is that comprehensive, one still feels the need to talk to someone. I suspect it might actually defeat some customers who just want a shed.
I was very specific in my requirements (Apex 58 10 x 6), some might not be so. As I come from a retail background, I would suggest that you create a page that gives very easy access to your most popular lines.
Ian, Westbury-on-Trym, Bristol, BS10, 6x10 Heavy Duty Apex Shed 58, 24th July 2012
We are now planting our greenhouse and it is excellent. We are very pleased and it is better than we expected.
The guys who put it up were excellent. Please could you confirm the price they quoted for assembly? They said it was £1600 and we thought it was £1500 so we agreed to meet half way. However if it was £1600 I will send the difference.

Thanks to everyone for such a brilliantly sturdy and well constructed product. It arrived exactly when you said it would and every section fitted perfectly with the right amount of good quality screws and nails too. The instructions were good (although my wife needed to enlarge to A3 paper because I didnt want to wear my glasses during construction - minor detail). My shed is now up, having waited for a dry spell to erect. I have given it a number of coats of wood protector and it looks great.
Simon, Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, SA15, 6x8 Apex Garden Shed 072, 16th July 2012
Our shed was installed yesterday by your recommended installer Installer 229, who did a very good job. Unfortunately, he couldn't complete it because the 16 vertical wood beadings to hold the glass in place were not the correct length. Those delivered were 35.5 cm at their longest point. The length we need is 38 cm. Could you please post the replacement beadings to me.
Thank you very much

I took delivery of the above mentioned shed on 14th June. Today I erected it. I want you to know that I am delighted with the product. Due to circumstances I had to put the shed together with no help but succeeded with no problem. Your product lives up to your advertising & I will have no hesitation in recommending you to my friends.

Thank you for your prompt delivery of the four curtain rollers for my recently purchased gazebo. Excellent service.
I would also be grateful if you could recommend a weatherproofing spray or material for the roof material?
John, Polmont, Falkirk, FK2, 10x10 Gazebo 106, 21st June 2012
I just wanted to say thank you for the fantastic summer house you supplied and fitted to us on Monday, 21st May.
I ordered the 10x8 model number 079. We were a little worried about buying such a large, expensive and major garden feature based on a small photograph and a description on a web page. From my initial enquiry to the final delivery and build the service was 1st class. The Summerhouse looks amazing and has been christened with a small gathering already! Once again many thanks for a truly 1st class service and product. Please pass my appreciation to the factory and to the fitters, a great job all round.
Mike, Wirral, Merseyside, CH61, 10x8 Apex Summerhouse 079, 23rd May 2012
I have received this ammended order. I would like to thank you for the the very efficient service I recieved from you. I would also like to add that the product, the instructions, and the quality were of very high standard. I would recommend your company to others.

Just finished putting up my 8 x 6 greenhouse.
Thank you for your excellent service. The product is excellent value for money compared to
your rivals and the instructions not too hard to follow!
Mike, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, NR31, 6x8 Greenhouse 101, 8th May 2012
Hi, Thank you very much.
It is much appreciated, now I hope to grow more prize winning tomatoes.
Roy, Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, B61, 8x10 Greenhouse 06, 24th April 2012
EXTRA NOTE: THIS CUSTOMER SENT A PHOTO OF THE PRIZE TOMATOES HE GREW IN THE GREENHOUSE. ORIGINALLY ORDERED IN 2011, HE ASKED US TO SUPPLY REPLACEMENT DOOR SLIDERS IN APRIL 2012.
The greenhouse is erected and standing proud. In fact the inside is beginning to look green and colourful. It looks good and I am satisfied with the installation.
Installer 152 braved the weather and completed the job on Saturday, sadly I understand that he did have a number of further problems, particularly with issues over missing items etc.
The one he was not able to resolve from his own personal box of bits, was sufficient beading for the edge to the roofing. He thus fitted the clips at the back of the roof edge and made sure that the front did look in order.
One can only express praise for his persistence and dedication to the task required and his own personality.
He is a man you can be proud of as a representative.

Thanks for all your efffort, piece has arrived and the Gazebo is up and running looks fantastic.
Once again many thanks
Jim, Warrington, WA4, 10x10 Gazebo 102, 21st April 2012
The shed was delivered yesterday and I would like to say how pleased I am with quality and ease of which we were able to put it up. There is a slight problem as there were only 6 of the 8 bolts required to fix the panels. We were able to use other screws but if possible we would like you to send us the missing bolts as we feel the shed would be more securly fastened with them.
There was a slight mix up as the company delivering the shed had put my home address down as the delivery address instead of the allotment. Of course we were waiting at the allotment and were not at home to accept delivery. I am a bit concerned that they left the shed unattented outside our house but thankfully nothing went missing. The problem was sorted out very quickly and I have to commend the very helpful driver who not only had to put himself out to return to us and reload the shed again, but also helped my husband move the panels when we eventually got to the allotment.
Joan, Didcot, OX11, 6x8 Pent Garden Shed 064, 20th April 2012
Thanks for the reply, all missing parts have been supplied and fitted. A very pleased customer.
David, Andover, SP10, 6x8 Greenhouse 101, 17th April 2012
My greenhouse and was erected by Installer 149 last Saturday and I'm delighted firstly with the greenhouse and also with the quality of service provided by your recommended installer. He arrived on time was very polite and constructed the greenhouse very swiftly for a very sensible fee
Unfortunately one piece was missing from the greenhouse which holds one of the automatic vent opener in position and I attach a page of the installation instructions indicating the missing part
Please could you send me one as soon as possible so I can complete the installation.

John, Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, KA2, 10x10 Metal Gazebo 140, 6th April 2012
Thank you for the recent Greenhouse that I purchased through yourself. On the whole, I am delighted with the product.
I wondered if you had any spares though as I was putting the rubber seal on the door, I broke on of the black plastic runners at the bottom of the door and the door is a little lopsided now. Trying to resolve this, I broke the screw head which secures the black plastic runner to the door side. If you have a few spare greenhouse nuts and bolts I would appreciate this.
Hugh, Lenzie, Glasgow, G66, 6x8 Greenhouse 101, 6th April 2012

I want to confirm how happy I am with the services of Installer 194, who you recommend to lay the base and erect the greenhouse that was purchased from yourselves. Installer 194 and his team were friendly, more than polite, as well as being very professional. I would be most grateful if you would please pass my comments to Installer 194.

I had a metal 10x10 shed delivered on Friday 9th and everything seems to be fine, except for 1 small thing. A packet of nuts and bolts had split and some of the nuts and bolts are missing - about 50 nuts and 10 bolts (must have slipped through the packaging).
If you could replace them for me I would be grateful.
