Feedback:The customer service I received was very good in store, payment on the phone and by the installers. I believe the item I have purchase is of very good quality. I looked around 5 other garden centres I didn't come across any that were as sturdy and good quality.
Response: Hi, Thanks for your feedback. It's good that you received good customer service by all concerned in the supply of your new Platinum Super Pent wooden shed. You also did yourself a service by taking your time and going and visiting actual examples of garden buildings. I just wish that everyone would do that and there would be less unhappy customers in the world. Thanks again. Regards, Robin

There have been many things stored in garden sheds over the years, which most people have not or could not imagine. Whilst you could imagine odd pieces of furniture, gardening tools, old clothes, old bikes and various items put in there 'just in case they will come in useful' could you imagine finding a dead body. Obviously this is quite extreme and you would have thought that this sort of thing would have stuck out like a sore thumb. I found this information on the Internet and actually have my doubts that a garden shed would be a place where a body would be left, but there nothing so 'strange as folk' as they say.
It has been known for people to find old bombs in their gardens and thinking they were not dangerous just put them at the back of the shed, why - I don't know!! And there they stay. When you take over this potentially dangerous shed - you don't call Ghost Busters - but the British Army Bomb squad, just to be sure.
Drugs, such as cannabis seeds, can also be found stored in garden sheds, admitted not very often, whilst waiting for the law to change so they can be grown legally. It's unlikely these will be growing without someone knowing as they need very specific conditions to germinate. Also, shady characters have been known to keep their stolen booty in the shed away from the house and then sell these knock off items when the heat dies down.
Beside the above there have been many treasures found at the back of sheds where the owners have just put them there out of the way as they did not know their value. In a Polish shed, which was owned by a 92 year old former bricklayer, last year 300 paintings worth a vast amount was found and police were baffled as to how they got there. These included works of art from the Renaissance and German baroque periods, with the oldest painting dating back to 1532.
Also a while ago a historical booklet with information about a Suffolk famous garden was found in a garden shed. This booklet, which was found in a shed in Suffolk at the National Trust's Ickworth Estate, contained details of what the garden looked like in the past and where plants were sited in the garden. Sean Read, the head gardener, hopes that the discovery of this booklet at the garden will help the estate to reconstruct lost features and also some of the original features of the county estate.
It was Capability Brown, the famous eighteenth century garden designer, who was the inspiration behind the estate gardens. Reid said that the discovery was the most fantastic find for the National Trust and that he found it hard to describe what it feels like to have come across this amazing piece of Ickworth's history. He further said that any gardener would do anything to obtain this precious information and that he was amazed this had been sitting there all this time in a humble garden shed.
If you have some treasures you want to store then take a look at the Diamond Barnham or Platinum Workshops ranges as these are like works of arts themselves and which the everyday person can aspire to and afford.
