Shed Delivery You Dream It. We Bring It.
At 5-Star Buildings, our shed delivery policy has been to bring and set-up your building on your property free of charge* (of course, site preparation is your responsibility). When we arrive at your home to deliver your building, we use our “mule” to help get your building just where it’s supposed to be.** The “mule” is a small portable forklift with flotation tires that hooks to one end of the building with a set of wheels at the other end. This mule lets us maneuver the building around trees and other obstacles. If you aren’t sure about whether your shed might not fit or not on your property, feel free to call us, and we’d be happy to help.
Although our 5-Star buildings can be set directly on the ground, we don’t recommend this option. Gravel pads are one of the best options to place a building on, and we highly encourage this option. If you choose not to use gravel pads, we level and block the first 8″ on all our buildings. If you want your shed to be blocked higher than 8″, you will be charged $4 per block by our driver. But if you supply your own blocks, we will install them at no additional cost. And finally, before we leave you with your 5-Star shed, we always make sure that your shed is level, and that your doors and windows are working properly.
*This includes 1 hour of delivery, which is sufficient time for 80% of our deliveries. Any additional time will be charged at $150 per hour after the first hour
**We will do our best at being careful, but we are not responsible for any yard damage on your property.
Preparing Your Shed Site For Delivery
Before your 5-Star shed arrives, it is your responsibility to have your shed site prepared. There are three common options for shed sites: shed blocks, concrete pad, or a gravel pad. Shed blocks may be the best option for you if you are looking to place your shed on a slight hill or are looking for the cheapest option. Concrete can be a good option, but generally a gravel pad is more cost effective and provides an even better, more porous base than concrete does.
Prior to delivery, the customer must do the following:
1. Check your HOA, county, or city regulations for permitting
2. Clear site for 3’ clearance around building
3. Prepare a level base (gravel recommended)
4. Evaluate site access and overhead building clearance
Also please note that we are not responsible to prepare access to your property. Our delivery drivers are not authorized to remove obstructions like fences or other objects on your property.
