They are typically the ‘fly-by-nighters’, as they are known, will take images of completed units from the web sites and then use them as part of free classified ad sites such as Gumtree and OLX, and put them on Facebook groups. Often they don’t even try to hide the copyright infringement, leaving water marks in place, leading unsuspecting clients to believe that they may be dealing with the real thing.
Unfortunately, they are not.
Usually clients are attracted by seemingly good prices, or impossible promises. In most cases they are heading for trouble of some kind.
The worst case is the straight out con, where the operator will just disappear with a sizable deposit (believe it or not, this can sometimes be close to 100% of the agreed price). Next on the horror show is the guy who turns up with unqualified laborers, spends weeks hammering and sawing on your drive way and then leaves you with a sub-standard structure and a mess to clean up (sometimes it may only be partially completed too). The first time any bad weather comes along the whole structure is in danger of collapse!
Even if solid Wendy Houses are constructed, in good faith, a lack of industry knowledge and experience can lead to a structure that is not going to last. This makes the good price a bad long term investment.
So, buyer beware! Even the smallest garden shed is going to set you back a sizable lump of cash- certainly enough to make it worth your while doing a little bit of homework before handing money over.
There is certainly nothing wrong with a company advertising on Gumtree. In fact there are guys advertising on there who are closely affiliated with legitimate Wendy House manufacturers. Unfortunately for every legitimate operator on the free platforms, there are an equal number of con men. Beware of scammers
