Delivery times
As at 23rd September, we are currently booking in jobs for late March 2021.
Long delivery times are an industry wide issue at the moment. I have been in this industry for 34 years and I have never known demand to be as high as it is. Unfortunately, I have also never known it to be impossible for us to increase our output to meet the demand as the amount of timber we can currently obtain is also limited. There are a few reasons for this:
Summertime is always our busiest time
We have seen a big increase in orders because people aren't able to go on holiday so are spending more time at home and in the garden. The garden has become a very important retreat and a garden room or office is a fantastic enhancement
There is a shortage of timber.
The timber shortage is three fold:
First, the vast majority of timber is imported and it takes time to meet an increased demand. Timber that is ordered from Scandinavia today won't arrive in our workshop for about 6-9 months. The big timber importers base their ordering on how much they sold in that period the previous year. There is usually a good amount of stock held at the docks to cope with any increase in demand. That back-up stock has already been used
Second, there is an increased demand across all wood market sectors. This increase is unprecedented and it's going to take some time for the supply to catch up with the demand. Most timber stock is on back-order with the ongoing supply being used as soon as it is available.
Last, the American market is buying a lots more Western European timber than they usually do. We're trying to be as honest as we can with our delivery times. We're not being ambitious or unrealistic and giving people delivery dates that we know can't be met, just to get people to order from us. Up until now I'm proud to say we haven't missed a single delivery slot that we have given. Not one. Everyone has had their shed on the date we agreed with them.
Thats where things are now and it's looking likely that this will carry on into next year, there is no end in sight for it. If you are looking to get a shed quickly then you'll have to be very lucky to do so. If you are looking to get a shed for the early part of next year, I would advise you to get your order processed and booked in as soon as you can.

Booking Fee/Deposit At the moment we are taking bookings but not taking booking fees. The situation is that no-one knows what the situation is. We have heard of at least two shed companies that have gone into liquidation and taken clients deposits with them, there may be more.
As Director, I am not comfortable with holding clients booking fees (or deposits, whatever you want to call them) for 6 months in such an uncertain environment. So we will accept your order but you won't pay us anything until about 8 weeks before your new garden building is due for delivery and installation. At that point we will take 1/3rd of the cost off of you with the balance being due on completion.

Stay safe

Richard Lincoln
Director

Gorilla Sheds manufacture a range of quality garden sheds and log cabins that are built far beyond the standards that most companies work to.

Our sheds are built using quality materials. All our cladding is 5th grade or better Scandinavian redwood pine, the framework is either C16 or C24 grade and all our framework is smooth and rounded 4 corners. Our floors are either tongue and grooved or 18mm exterior plywood on the larger sheds.
Our standard roofing felt is hard wearing polyester based green mineral, not the cheap rag based felt more commonly used.

We try not to hide extras in our pricing as well. All our prices include delivery in South Essex and East London. Don’t worry if you are outside of those area’s though, we do deliver further afield, the cost is worked out according to the postcode.
We install all or our sheds free of charge at the time of delivery. We need you to ensure that there is good access and a suitable firm, flat base for the shed to go onto.

We give our sheds a basecoat treatment as standard which is also included in the price. Alternatively, you can have us treat your shed for you prior to delivery with a very high quality spirit based treatment that penetrates the timber and gives your shed the best start in life. We also sell the treatment if you would rather do this yourself after the shed is installed.

Our windows are real glass, we do not use plastic that might yellow over time. If safety is an issue then we can swap the standard horticultural glass to laminated glass at additional cost.

As all our sheds are built to order it is no problem for us to modify a design for you or to build a completely bespoke garden building for use as an office, man cave, ladies retreat, garden room or a crash out for the kids.

Gorilla Sheds – Quality Garden Buildings That Are Built To Last

Gorilla Garden Sheds

At Gorilla Garden Sheds we build garden sheds up to a high standard using good quality graded timber to ensure that your shed lives up to our reputation. Many companies build their garden sheds using cheap whitewood cladding which keeps their prices down but isn't as durable as the redwood pine that we use.

Whether your requirement is for a garden storage box, a garden shed , a home office or a bespoke garden building, we exercise the the same care in providing your new garden shed or building as we would if it were going in our own garden. If you cannot find the garden shed or building that you require on this site then please give us a call or drop us a line.
