Make a list of questions to ask before paying deposit

We have compiled a list of questions you might want to ask your shed supplier before signing on and paying your deposit. They are in no particular order of importance. We suggest you have a read through them, decide which of them are most important to you and ask them before you sign your shed order. Some companies have prepared guides of their own to assist this and some cover off some of these points in their contract.
