Thinking of buying a shed but just can't make up your mind? There are so many options and a few key decisions to make before you can reach that place of pride where all your garden equipment, tools, and excess furniture are safely stowed away out of sight.

Aussie company Sheds4Less comes to the rescue at times like these. The business was started in 2009 by a group of hardware industry veterans who felt there simply had to be a more reliable way of providing Australian consumers with a better value deal when buying a garden shed.

They found visiting a local hardware store to buy a shed was quite the hassle - with stock levels low, little in the way of specialist advice and then of course, the issue of delivery.

That's why Sheds4Less has designed its products for the customer - not the retailer. Sheds are packed into multiple specially designed cartons weighing no more that 25kg, so you can easily move your shed without too much trouble. Importantly though, the sheds are delivered directly to customer's homes. This all means the price savings get passed on to you too.

Sheds are a great space saver and are known to increase the value of a property. Many of us have a large pile of clutter stuck in a part of the house, on the deck, garage or even in crawl spaces we vow we are going to use one day and when we do, accessing just the item wanted is a struggle.

With the average size of a backyard now 22 per cent smaller than 15 years ago - finding a place for the mower, garden tools, bikes, sporting equipment, and hobby paraphernalia is almost impossible without turning your home into a junkyard. Not any more.

Solve this problem with a Sheds4Less shed. No matter the size of your property, its range is beyond the average, adaptable and easy to assemble. And the beauty of it all is your shed will be configured as soon as an order is received. Sheds4Less also provides this handy video to guide you on your DA/council requirements when deciding which shed to buy.

Of course, the look of your shed has also been thought of for you. Depending on what you will put into the shed, you can choose a single, double, hinged or sliding door. For example, ride-on mowers, bikes, spare beds and tents are bulky and will need more room to get out - so a sliding door is perfect for this.

Sheds For Less has a "no more to pay" pricing philosophy which means there are no surprises. The price includes delivery to your home, plus the bolt down kits you need, no matter where you live in Australia.

In a few weeks, when summer is well and truly here, we are all going to need more space and for our homes to be clutter-free and welcoming in time for friends and family when they visit.
