all well an good to insurance get involved. sadly in this world we now live in its all about litigationA friend of mine equally desperate for a shed went into the shed builders office and said here's my bank card, tell me how much it is and I will pay right now. They wouldn't have it.
He eventually gave up, bought the steel himself and is making it himself. May not be CE but he can weld as good or better than anyone.
i would be very happy having a lot of anything in stock now made of metal, especially if i paid for in Jan 21!I can't think of anything more stressful than having a business based on getting prices out of suppliers who are in turn in a similarly volatile world.
Of course even holding any kind of serious quantities of steel or anything in stock would just be totally dead money and just a PITA to even have sat there.
the only way to do this is to get a shed builder to quote for all components, then accept his order and basically then pay for every item there and then and accept you may have to store it on site for 6 + months till its needed. You basically then just pay the builder's profit margin and labour rates as it goes along
