Our Customer Reviews


Mrs M - Golspie

Just wanted to let you know that I am absolutely delighted with my garden room; the entire process from delivery, erection and internal finishing went smoothly and quickly due to your hard working team, with the unexpected good weather a bonus!   The final result is so pleasing I'm now considering a matching garage!

Mr and Mrs E - Nottinghamshire

My wife and I would like to thank you for the smooth and efficient "creation" of our summerhouse.  From the initial valuable discussion with Alan McGregor at our home and the erection of our Holkham garden building, the whole process went precisely according to plan. The base was laid on schedule and we were impressed with the smooth arrival of the building on the low loader.  The construction was done precisely, calmly, efficiently and without any fuss by the three members of staff who were a credit to the company.  On completion they kindly moved a heavy exercise bike from the house and put it in the building. It is a pleasure to sit in the space and it serves our purpose well.

Ms D - Aberdeenshire

Your two lads Bill and Alan have been here most of the day putting down the foundation for the summerhouse.............I think they are two of the nicest young men, they work hard and with commendable precision.............I do hope they return to erect the house on the 24th.    

Mr and Mrs F - Oxfordshire

Thanks so much to Andrew from Burford Garden Centre who made the process of buying so pleasant. Also to Roger Chapman and his very efficient team for the stress-free installation. We love our new Garden Retreat.

Mrs L - Gloucestershire

I would like to express my delight with the Garden Studio and shed recently completed. It is just as I imagined, and hoped, well worth the wait, and I look forward to many years of enjoyment.  

Mrs S B - London

The summerhouse is absolutely excellent in every way. I'm a musician and for me the one important thing I could not check until it was here is the acoustic: I was thrilled to find that it is quite superb. Your staff, and the electrician, were all tip top in every respect.

Mr L & Ms A - Herefordshire

The base of the 6.0 x 6.0m garden building was energetically laid by Lee & Mark, the building was swiftly erected by Cliff & Billy. Both teams had an eye to every detail, keen to produce excellence and were good and merry company while on the job. So too Darren the electrician. The building looks superb. The roof with its “rubberised” slates I had not easily seen before, yet in the huts present position we can look down on it and the expanse of the roof is delightful. I am impressed that it had been disassembled at Burford with such care that it could be re-erected and look as if new. Your firm was patient in waiting for the planning permission for which we had applied, and you and your office kept in reassuring touch over that period. The building will be a wonder at Jane and my forthcoming wedding reception and I shall enjoy telling people about Cranes. Your fine buildings and courteous service. We shall treasure the building.

Mr & Mrs J - Downham Market

We are simply thrilled and delighted with our new Cranes Summerhouse, recently installed by your most professional, first class team of fitters. The team were a pleasure to have on site, very thorough and conscientious, a real credit to your firm.

Mrs T - York

Hello! I have had my summerhouse erected today by Matthew and his assistant and I can honestly say they have been the best workmen I have had dealings with ever! They were so pleasant, professional and hard working and it made me feel confident that I had spent my retirement bonus well! I am usually dismayed by the standards displayed by other people I have employed but certainly not in this case. Would you please pass on my gratitude to them for a job well done? The summerhouse is absolutely gorgeous... Beautifully crafted and very pleasing to the eye! I will certainly recommend you to a number of friends who are considering purchasing a summerhouse, both for the quality of the product and the extremely professional installers! Thank you!

Mr & Mrs I - Berkshire

I thought you might like to see what I have done with our lovely new studio. It is a back garden Yacht Club! Mum officially 'opened' it on Saturday. We are REALLY pleased with it, from the service we received from you back in January, to the two lads who built it in April, to the workmanship of the final building. Many thanks to all involved. A great 'family' service.

Mr & Mrs S - Tunbridge Wells

Despite the inclement weather, Billy and Dean worked their socks off today and within some four hours our summer house was erected. Great product, great employees, so you are crowned "Great Crane!" From an exiled old Norfolk boy, "Yurr a grut ole teem."

Mr & Mrs S - Derbyshire

Thank you so much for our wonderful garden room! The guys who laid the base were amazing and worked all day in pouring rain. The team that put up the garden room had better weather but they did not sit around in the sunshine. They worked solidly for 2 days. We are highly impressed with your workforce. They are professional, skilled, polite and tidy. The building is fantastic and is enhancing our garden and our lifestyle already. We are waiting for our electrician to connect us up and once we have technology we will probably move out of the house into the garden room. Thank you so much. We cannot fault your service. Please pass on our appreciation to your staff.

Mr K - Derbyshire

I wanted to let you know how impressed I am with the two men laying the base of my summerhouse. They started the work today and have been courteous and professional. They talked with real pride about your company, the awards you have won and the fact that some of your products are sold in John Lewis. They clearly felt part of a growing and successful organisation. It was a pleasure to listen to such happy and professional views. It is rare these days to find a company where the front line employees are so signed up to the values and vision of the company. Well done for clearly having excellent training and communication processes in place to inspire and motivate your staff.

Mr & Mrs W - Oxfordshire

Sorry not to have been in touch with you a bit sooner. We’ve been rather busy! Anyway the garden room has been built and looks very good. Your people finished it a week or so ago and since then we’ve had the electrics connected, fencing built and the ground levelled for turf to be laid up to the building next month. We’ve even been to Ikea for some furniture etc. Many thanks for all your help. We’re absolutely delighted with everything. All best wishes.

Mr G - Cumbria

I just wanted to drop a few words to say thank you for the excellent service my wife and I have received from Crane Garden Buildings. All your workmen were wonderful and have done an excellent job not only of erecting our shed/log store but also carrying out a small repair today. Please pass on our sincere and grateful thanks to all of them. We will certainly recommend your Company to our friends and family.

Mr W - Lowestoft

I should like to take this opportunity to thank you for the very nice Superior Shed that was delivered to me on Friday 23rd Jan. I should also like to thank the two fitters for their excellent work. I am looking forward to installing my model trains.

Mr & Mrs R - Lancashire

We just want to sing the praises of the men who work for your company. Our garden shed was delivered and placed in our garden with speed and efficiency. They arrived as stated and worked without stopping. We experienced a problem with the felting, and the follow-up team replaced the felt - they have done a superb job and have left us with a shed to be proud of. Big pat on the back for them all.

Mr & Mrs R - Banbury

Thank you for your information and assistance with regards to choosing the design initially and many thanks to the fitter guys who have made a fantastic job of erecting this fabulous looking garden shed!! With kind regards from a very satisfied customer.

Ms T - Berkshire

I just had to write to you to say how happy we are with our beautiful new Wiveton Summerhouse. I also wanted to let you know how courteous, polite and efficient your construction team were. Nothing was too much trouble, they wanted to be sure that I was happy in every way with the summerhouse. I believe their names were Scott and Lee and I would be most grateful if you could pass on my thanks and congratulations to them for how they dealt with the construction work, how tidily they worked and how they even explained about the windows, door locks etc. I also want you to know what fantastic ambassadors they are for your company.

Mr & Mrs S - Surrey

Our garden building (not merely a shed!) was installed this morning without any problems. The men arrived early and worked hard despite the rain. We are very pleased with the product and are pleased to hear that your company is doing well. At least we can still manufacture garden buildings in England.
