Our Melbourne depot is situated in Clayton, at 1657 Centre Rd, Clayton – but if you are in Geelong don’t worry, you’ll not have to go right across town to pick up your shed, we’ve got a depot in Geelong at Toll Ipe, 26 Hume Reserve CT, North Geelong.
Like Sydney, Melbourne has a Metropolitan of dense population where space is limited, followed by small block suburbs and then an urban sprawl, but though Sydney has more people in it, Melbourne’s urban Sprawl goes far further. As a result, we sell more or our larger sheds, and larger aviaries to the outer suburbs of Melbourne than the outer suburbs of Sydney – Melbourne’s outer is simply so much bigger.
Our Melbourne and Geelong Shed buyers face significantly more challenges than their Sydney counterparts. When it’s cold in Melbourne... its cold.... much colder than Sydney.... and since there is no protective mountain range between Melbourne and the hot dry interior like the Blue Mountains West of Sydney.... Melbourne suffers more extremes of heat in summer than Sydney – record temperatures in 2009 exceeding 48 degrees.
As a result, we advise our Melbourne shed owners to get a bit creative with their insulation. Cold concrete slabs can be made much warmer with some old carpet, rubber matting or a floating wooden floor. Try to minimise the amount of sun that hits your shed if heat is going to be a problem. Fast growing thick shrubs either ends make a big difference.
I’ve seen a few nice innerish city renovations in Melbourne where the builder has got creative with their shed decoration and insulation. One I saw that springs to mind was in Northcote, a brick screening wall was built and rendered to match the house.... because though our sheds are well made and look great- a whitewashed brick wall matched the Greek style renovation better and also kept the shed much cooler.
We sell almost no carports and garages in the Melbourne Metro area(street parking only for much of this area anyway) but we do sell quite a few carports in the middle suburbs where there is not enough room for even a single garage, but enough room for a carport.
We sell pretty evenly across our aviary range in Melbourne, with the most popular birds kept by our Melbourne customers being budgerigars, closely followed by Cockatiels and Rainbow Lorikeets
