Are you moving to a new place and don’t know what to do with your current garden shed? This structure can be a dedicated storage space for your everyday tools.

Factors affecting shed disposal costs

Have you ever wondered about shed demolition and removal costs? Here’s a quick rundown of potential factors:


Shed size

Naturally, the bigger the shed, the more time it takes to remove it. However, sheds that are old and in poor condition would be easier to break apart for removal.


Asbestos removal

Older sheds accumulate asbestos on the roof over time. Asbestos removal for sheds typically costs £350 on average, ranging between £300 and £400. If you want to do the math more accurately, asbestos removal in the UK typically costs £50 per square metre.

Packing requirements

Packing in the UK typically costs between £175 and £450, but organising and storing a shed’s contents is a simple task that should be cheaper. You can expect to pay £12/hour for this service.


Other charges post-removal

Depending on your needs, professionals can complete other tasks related to shed removal once it's done. You will likely need reseeding for the portion of the yard that was vacated. You can ask Taskers to do that for you for an additional fee.

Preparing your shed for removal

Here are a few things you need to remember before having your shed removed.

  1. If you can, empty the shed. You can ask a Tasker to do this for around £70 per hour. This is also a good opportunity for you to organize your shed’s contents like tools before moving them elsewhere.
  2. If you want to demolish or get rid of an unsightly shed, note that some areas have specific waste disposal regulations. If your Tasker can’t complete these requirements, do some research and legwork to secure the necessary documents for shed removal.
