Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Cale Very poor materials, bad customer service from Arrow, Garbage!!!
So after reading multiple reviews of this shed both good and bad I decided to the trade off of saving some money on buying this kit was worth it from the negatives I'd read about. Most of the negatives were how difficult it was to install, how many pieces there are etc. I wasn't worried about that and after receiving it I can say yes it is a lot of work to construct but most mechanically inclined people can figure it out no problem. The materials are very thin especially the support structure. After getting about 80% of the shed completed I walked into my back yard to see the shed that I've spent thousands of dollars on and lots of man hours to be crumbled up pile of scrap. (See Pictures).
I cannot stress to all potential buyers to please do yourself a favor and spend your hard earned money elsewhere. There was no major storm, tornado or hurricane that caused this. The weather was beautiful with a light breeze. This shed is made with the cheapest and thinnest materials possible that crumbled under its own weight. Companies used to care about the quality of products they put their name on but not anymore. I contacted Arrow Sheds directly to see if they would make the situation right. I received terrible customer service in the name of "that's our policy". I emailed them the pictures and explained the situation they only thing they offered me was to purchase the pieces that were damaged (which would be 70% of the parts). They wouldn't offer any sort of refund/ exchange or even to send out replacement pieces to fix the damage.
It saddens me that this is how companies treat customers nowadays. Companies used to take pride in the products they put their name on, but long gone are those days. Customer service and Quality have been replaced with "Policy" and the largest profits possible. Companies spend more money on marketing trying to sell us inferior products instead of actually producing quality products that would sell themselves.
Now I'm stuck with this scrap metal in my back yard that I'm going to have to pay to haul away to the dump. Again please do not buy a sorry excuse for a shed from Arrow. Not only is the material poor, with the amount of work involved in assembling this erector set you can use stronger materials with the same amount of effort and a little more cost.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kreh Hard to put together
Very hard to put together. Some of the holes didn't match up. The directions are very hard to follow. The pictures sometimes don't dipict how the part is installed (the direction) and the written directions don't help. Some parts had holes on both sides and you couldn't tell which way to install it. Sometimes there were holes punched in parts that didn't go to anything. That could be because the parts were the same number as others and were just being used for a different purpose, so it was confusing. We had 7 people trying to help us put this shed together, and it took forever. Plus the shipper damaged a couple parts. The box was apparently hit pretty hard on the end. We didn't unpack anything for about 3 weeks, so we didn't know right away.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jeff This is a light metal shed
This shed was mounted on a concrete slab --- has been a OK storage shed for 10 years -- Metal is light gauge and will not withstand abuse from children (balls, Frisbees, etc.). Bought it to store camper and summer toys. Has stood up to several sever snow storm and 28" of snow. Doors are average and will need adjusted every so often. Assembly was fairly straight forward.

Would like to give 4 and 1/2 stars, but not an option.
Building went up according to my expectations. I made sure I had a month of weekends to do it. Takes more than a passing knowledge of a screwdriver to do it. Directions say use sealer to make the build weather-proof, and it needs it. Ran out of small bolts - but hardware store has more.
Had to call Home Depot to clarify free delivery with shipper, including removing from truck to my yard. Home Depot took care of it - but make the call!
Completed building seems sturdy and I'm looking forward to using it to rebuild my Corvette.

This was an expensive purchase that was complete JUNK! We ended up using the tin for skirting around our sons trailer because the shed would not stand up to the wind! Highly recommend you look around for something OTHER then this!

This is the best investment I have made thus far. Though cheap in price quality was and still is superior. I Figured I was going to by the cheapest one to just through a few of my tools in and it would not be any other use. I'll tell you boy was I wrong. This is what I call an all out usefull tool for all your lifes needs. Not only did it double as a tempory bed for a bad storm but I have not had any problems putting it together. Although I strongly suggest you get a Pro to do this, it was fun. Not only did it fit my life. But it also gave me a bonus. I call it my Fishermans Nook. All my gear finally has a home. Not only that, but the space even after all my garden tools were put in, was just right for my fishing gear as well as in house items. So thanks Home Depot you really made me happy and my wife, well lets say she is even happier then me.
