Local businesses offer help to shed victims

THERE were at least some positives to come out of the story surrounding the ripping off of Ipswich shed customers.

Two Ipswich companies, as well as one from Jimboomba, and a former shed builder from Ipswich, have all offered their assistance to families affected, since their stories were published in the QT.

The wheels are already in motion to assist Bundamba couple Val and John Vogel, who lost $1400 after making a deposit but never hearing back from Patios and Sheds Ipswich.

Local contractor Arthur Lock has joined forces with Jimboomba shed supplier Shane Krofen to give the Vogels the double remote-controlled electric garage doors they had been waiting for.

Mr Lock, who offered to install the doors for free as long as someone could supply the materials, said the work would be carried out soon.

"The Vogels are just gobsmacked," he said.

"They are much, much more relieved now."

Titan Sheds and Shedzone have also offered their assistance and are in the process of trying to work out which customers they can help and how.
