How to Prepare Your Gravel Shed Pad

Gravel Pad for Portable Sheds

Storage Shed Pads and Garage Gravel Pad Preparation

Preparing for your storage shed from Sheds Unlimited is an important procedure. We recommend placing your shed on a gravel storage shed pad as outlined below. Please follow the storage shed pad or car garage pad instructions as outlined. On larger two, three of four car garages and two-story buildings we provide directions on preparing a concrete pad. As always, feel free to call us at 717-442-9055 or email us if you have any further questions.

SHEDS UNLIMITED is NOT responsible for structural problems if one fails to follow the instructions. Failure to follow instructions will VOID the Sheds Unlimited WARRANTY and may incur extra delivery charges!

Follow These Instructions For Storage Shed Pad Preparation with a Gravel Pad

1. Measure the Space for your Building

Please ensure that our “MULE” can bring the shed fully assembled into your backyard (if the area is tight, please request a “built on site” shed)

2. Build a Perimeter for Your Storage Shed

Build a 4″x4″, 4″x6″ or 6″x6″ pressure treated perimeter. The STONE AREA of your SHED PAD should be at least ONE FOOT WIDER and ONE FOOT LONGER than the actual size of the building. See Photos Below. 

3. Fill in With Stone

Fill the area inside the frame with 4-6 inches of 3/4 INCH CRUSHED STONE – DO NOT USE RIVER BEAD STONE or a SMOOTH ROUNDED STONE!!

4. Check for Level

Please MAKE SURE that the pad is PERFECTLY LEVEL and SQUARE

Going with Sheds Unlimited was a great choice. The price and the service was excellent. Delivery was quick and we love our new shed.

Kirk from Springfield PA

Excellent customer service! Excellent product!  Process to order was easy and staff were very helpful every step of the way.  The weather proved to be challenging for the delivery, but Austin provided almost daily updates until the shed was delivered.  Getting the shed to the backyard was not easy, but the crew made it work.  Minor blemishes were fixed in a timely manner.  I am very pleased with all aspects of Sheds Unlimited and would highly recommend them! 

DGM from VA

Very pleased with service , delivery was great, the mule is a great tool it let the driver get the shed just where I wanted it with no problems

Steven Henriksen from Oceanside NY

The quality & craftsmanship of their product can't be beat. Everyone there from the time of purchase to the install was great to work with. The price can't be beat either once you compare the service and the quality of the product. You'll be more than happy with their product! Thanks for a great product guys!

Tim Miller from College Park MD

My shed is everything I could of ask for. I could of built my own shed but comparing the.price and the craftsmanship they know what they are doing, and I made the right choice. . The wait was worth the time as did the kids faces seeing this 8 by 16 ft house roll off the truck into our yard. As for the people I spoke to they couldn't be nicer on the phone very helpful in a timely manner never had to wait more then a few minutes. This shed will last and be part of my family for a long time. It may seem funny I said that, but to me being in my yard with my wife n kids doing little things keep us close and a family. To look up n see how nice my yard is and havering a beautiful shed sitting there just make me feel good. Can't wait to order my pool cabanner!!!

Thomas Fasano from Deer Park New York

From start to finish, dealing with Sheds Unlimited was a great experience. After visiting Gap, PA, looking at the sheds, and dealing with Ben our salesperson, we selected a 12' x 10' Classic shed. We needed to have the shed built on-site. Ben guided us through the details, James arranged delivery, and Leon and Nate delivered and assembled the shed in under 4 hours. Incredible! The shed looks great and is well made. We couldn't be happier with our purchase.

Paul D. from Davidsonville, MD

Well first off Mark & Willie drove 4 hours to get here and when they did it had been raining for hours , these 2 guys unloaded truck & started at 7:30 am, in the rain & it was about 40* out, they had a 24x20 building up & roof on in less than 6 hours, they installed 3 windows, walk in door, trim & paint. I had a mishap with old garage & asked if they can use my garage door, no problem at all, they finished everything & cleaned up in the dark & still had a 4 hour drive home. I am extremely happy, Mark & Willie you two guys are great, my whole experience from drawings to ordering with John to building being complete was the greatest, Sheds Unlimited is #1 in my book.

very pleased with my new shed. to have all the work done for the same price of buying a kit and having to build it and paint it. you cant beat it. easily went from trailer to pad in a few minutes. wish it had a gable vent ill have to add it.

Steve from N.y.

The process was very easy and everyone was helpful and professional. The delivery driver was great and I was impressed by how easy he made it look to move a huge shed onto the shed pad. I will use Sheds Unlimited again!!!
