In a damaged state when delivered and was clearly packed like this, no damage to protective packaging.

The garden box which was delivered was damaged on the lid quite badly and was clearly in this state when packaged as the protective coverings were all perfect.
They did offer to replace it or offer me a 20% discount which I thought was quite low considering the damage and also since I have since found the same box being sold through garden trading at John Lewis for £160 instead of £180. I have settled for 25% discount but I think they have done quite well out of the deal considering transportation costs.

Beautiful wood and zinc top without a shred of plastic! Delighted with the design and the craftsmanship.Many thanks!

I ordered a deck storage box. It was hard to find a non-plastic one at all, but the one at Garden Trading was just beautiful. Made of alderwood and with a zinc top, it is going to be a beautiful addition to my patio.I expected a long and expensive delivery to the US, but neither was true. Well done!

The item , a large spruce storage box was damaged on one corner. It's possible this was caused as a result of delivery by a one man service and not the two man service that GT had arranged.

The garden item was for my 91 yr old mother . GT were very helpful regarding the delivery arrangements. They ( Kayleigh) responded promptly to my questions and were consistently helpful and professional. Sadly the delivery company were not as good. For whatever reason the item was damaged and has had to be returned. GT were prompt at dealing with this and made arrangements for a replacement immediately . I would be very happy to use them again.

Yes, the storage box was what we expected. One of the legs was showing slightly split wood. It would have been helpful if this box came painted/ treated

Ordering was easy and the worker was helpful and pleasant.
Delivery was easily organised, but I needed to contact the company to establish when they may arrive. A phone call / text to give a rough eta would be normal for products costing this amount. As a result I had to take a full days holiday.

Very pleasant customer service and the goods arrived extremely well packaged. Minor criticisms only - the tracking information provided was vague and despite written and verbal instructions, the delivery vehicle was still a bit too big. That apart, a great service as usual.

On arrival and first appearance, the storage box looked great, only to find a huge dent in the metal top. The delivery company were very helpful and took it away but i noted that there was no packaging to protect the item apart from a cardboard box. Sorry but have not had a good experience so far. Let's hope it is rectified speedily.

Made the order with no problems but then trying to track when it was being delivered was not very good. I tried to logon to track the delivery but couldn't login and requested a password change but the password change email never arrived. Left 3 messages in total to find out delivery. Finally took delivery 8 days after it had been despatched.

I am very happy with the storage box. Looks like I had it made for the space in my porch. Waterproof, attractive greyish stain and the zinc lid seems to reflect light in the porch.

I ordered on line, but rang to check a detail with a very helpful customer service person. The chest showed up on time - even a day early which was great for me.

Love this storage box. Truly good, solid, well made, nice finish, quality trim and hinges. 10 minutes to coat it with a weather sealer. The wood and zinc colour combination very attractive and smart. Loads of room for wellies and riding boots by the back door. Solid to sit on while booting up too. Inside use or out, I would highly recommend it.

A delightful website to shop on, great and speedy delivery, all in all highly recommended.

This is a really nice product, very practical and also good looking. Yes I would recommend it if it will fit through your property and you can lift it, if not, go for the smaller one.

Your customer services were not clear about which carrier would be delivering the box. But when I had to return it because it was too big to fit through my house they were very helpful indeed.

I absolutely love my new garden storage box - it looks really lovely and is obviously a really good quality item. It is not a lightweight box but good and sturdy. I especially love the design with the slanted top so that the rain rolls off, which is just what I was looking for as my last garden box was a cheap plastic one and the rain always collected on the lid and got all messy - this is just perfect!!

Ordering was easy and communication was excellent - could not have asked for better. Detail about internal dimensions would be useful though- I read the other reviews before making my purchase.

Because of the heavy lid it would have been better with a sofy close lid stay to hold it open when using the box. Now that I have it I wish I had ordered the large size.

Very good range of products and my order was dealt with very quickly.

Lovely box, lovely products and lovely colours. I would recommend and will probably make further purchases. Did take the precaution of soaking the feet in wood preserver, though. It's the one bit of outdoor furniture that doesn't get enough protection/attention.

Customer services were very good, item arrived promptly and website easy to navigate. Teeny fly in the ointment was that I had to lug the box through my house because the delivery driver didn't have a sack truck to wheel it around for me.

Just what I needed for the garden.... though for me, the box could have been longer as I have the space available. Looks smashing in a contemporary setting. Almost good enough to have indoors! Lovely pale grey wash on the wood.

My experience with your company has been so negative that I doubt I will ever purchase from you again.

I tried repeatedly to track my order and ascertain when it would be delivered. I was unable to do this on your website and was offered no explanation or alternative way of finding out when my order would be delivered. I was eventually told that I would be contacted on the day of delivery with a time slot. This never happened and the courier company arrived unannounced.

This storage box was as described, quite well made and sturdy. It is now treated inside and out to ensure the wood lasts a long time. I am using the box to store compost bags and have manage to fit in six bags. I have also ordered another for storing other garden items.

Very well packaged and arrived on a pallet.

It's beautiful. HOWEVER, it's not waterproof.

The service from garden trading was excellent but the delivery through DPD was bad, the driver was rude and not helpful, he neither spoke nor helped me with the parcel, when he arrived I was on the phone and asked him to wait a moment, he kept banging on the door being inpatient, when I did go to the door he didn't say a word, threw the box down and thrust the device for me to sign for the package at me, no please of thank you. He was very rude.

I love the boxes, but for the price I would expect them to be perfect and the joints on one of the boxes hasn't been knocked in correctly. I would return it but I desperately need to use it.

The box is fine but the slats on the bottom are uneven, and they don't fit properly. However, it doesn't seem worth returning.

The website is excellent and provides a strong platform for your products. The only disappointment was that the delivery company left the product sitting in the road on a wooden pallet and refused to help move it into the house. At the time I was away, my wife was here on her own and had to ask neighbours to assist as she feared it might get stolen.

Great product and certainly fit for purpose. Only slight niggle was that one of the plastic adjustable feet was really hard to screw in – needed a pair of pliers. Thread possibly damaged when that part was hammered in to the bottom. Will make adjusting that particular foot a bit more difficult than it should be. I have seen this problem mentioned in a few other reviews (before purchasing) so slightly surprised that it hasn't been addressed yet. But, as previously mentioned, a slight niggle.

Has a sharp corner so could cut fingers on opening lid. My husband fixed it by tapping it down as easier than returning but if it was smaller it would have been returned.

Happy with purchase other than a sharp corner. My parcel was dumped on a driveway in the next village. The home owner kindly drove to my address rather than ask the company to collect it. A huge inconvenience to him as a very large item and very disappointed. This needs to be dealt with by GT!

Gave specific instructions on how to deliver my purchase to my home as the sat nav will not take you to my address which was not passed onto the driver who ended up calling me very lost and confused.

The product is very good, but as mentioned in a few of the other reviews the interior is surprisingly small compared to the outside dimensions. I knew this in advance so not a complaint and the larger model would have taken up too much room. Good, solid construction and sits on our wooden-decked balcony perfectly. Unless it is opening against a wall be careful of the hinges. Ours opens against a brick wall so I've put a safety stopper on the wall to prevent the lid from being scratched when resting against it.

Excellent website and easy ordering. Lovely collection of products. Unfortunately our product was damaged on delivery even though it was very well packaged (I think damaged from manufacturer). The service received from Garden Trading was excellent offering a discount or replacement. Can't argue with that. Lovely product for storing our bird feed and tools on our balcony.

I really like the box, and it is as described the concern is that the wood looks like I need to treat it against the rain, and the feet could do with some protection I noticed after a rain shower they had a tied mark. I am pleased and it will be useful. Oh nearly forgot for some reason I thought it would have a zinc lining again to protect from rain? Thank you

The box is well made, but it would be useful to give the inside measurements as the interior space is considerably smaller than it looks from the outside.

The delivery was three days late, and although my wife explained to the courier exactly how to get to the house he left it in a field and we had to load it into the car and bring it to the house.

We're using ours to store our beach toys outside rather than bringing them inside with all the sand. The box is beautifully made and looks so much nicer to the plastic ones I found locally.

Very quick service and they answered by queries promptly
