Welcome to my bargain on-line log cabin Review with images

AdvantagesExcellent prices, fast delivery, lovely stuff

DisadvantagesAre you willing to buy from a photo?

"...log cabin? ************************************************* We headed off to garden centres and big DIY places like B&Q /Homebase etc. We were looking in February and I can tell you now that nobody has them at that time of year. All the big DIY places have catalogues with nice cabins in but none had them on show. The size we were looking for was coming out at around £1500. I price-check EVERYTHING but as the cabin was intended as a birthday ..." Read review

Wouldn't touch them with your bargepole, let alone mine.


DisadvantagesJust read the review!

"Garden Buildings Direct. Well. I don't normally post bad reviews. Poo happens, every company has an off day, so I like to give the benefit of the doubt. However. This company took the biscuit. Biscuit isn't the word I would normally use. Think, a four letter word starting with 'p' describing urine, and ending in 'iss'. However, I don't know if there's any issue with profanities on your site, so I'll err on the side of caution. A rather lengthy story, ..." Read review

Stay away from this company!

AdvantagesCheaper than other versions

DisadvantagesAlot of the pieces of wood were damaged and cracked, the floor bows (not a problem if not raised)

"...works taking place in our garden but we have had to make other alterations to stop the floor from bowing in the middle. We certainly would not be happy with our children playing in it without added support. I have never left bad feedback on a company before and feel uncomfortable doing so but on this occasion I think it is in the interest of prospective customers that they know what sort of problems they may encounter ..."

Oh dear....Billy-Oh Motorbike shed from Gardens Building Direct

AdvantagesCustomer services were responsive

DisadvantagesAwful roof quality, laughable delivery, unsatisfactory resolution

"...a BillyOh Motorbike Shed from Garden Buildings Direct, which was delivered by being dumped in the road, yes that's right - in the road!After that less than impressive start, the shed went up fairly easily and on went the roof, all according to the instructions (which had to be emailed to us as they had neglected to include them) The tongue and groove of the shed went up fairly quickly and easily - no complaints with that. When ..." Read review

Shoddy goods, appalling service!

AdvantagesTrading Standards are aware of this company.

DisadvantagesTotal waste of time and money.

"...agreement. Only after contacting Garden Buildings Direct (otherwise known as Kybotech) to query the delay, did they deliver the goods. To our shock of horrors it was next to impossible to assemble the log cabin even for our experienced team of carpenters due to many parts being warped and badly cut. Forced to dismantle the whole thing followed up with a call to the supposedly "Product Support" team with photographic evidence to illustrate the problem, ..." Read review
