Company History

Before establishing the business, Chris Ince – Managing Director – was an installer for a number of well-known shed companies in Melbourne. During this time he worked in a storeman role, moving into sales for a short time before becoming an installer of sheds. From Chris’s experience – he believed there was a better way a business could operate to better inform clients of total project cost and meeting expectations in quality, service and communication

This long term industry experience and drive to exceed client expectations, is part of the reason why we think we are the most knowledgeable shed businesses in Melbourne – offering a complete service from initial contact, permits and completion.

After some 12 years’ experience in the industry, Chris together with his wife Emma purchased the business now known as Melbourne Garages in 2010.

One of the first things implemented into the business was structuring quotes to provide clients with a full project cost that was understood from the beginning. In addition site visits are offered and welcomed and accurate site costs for concreting and construction are now possible.

Having a young family brought its own challenges with managing and developing the business. After some time commuting between the Peninsula and the north eastern suburbs – the family made the move to the Peninsula and have never looked back.

Being able to imbed themselves into the community supports the longevity of the business and allowed Chris and Emma to appreciate and better understand the needs of the local clients, the area and the council requirements.

In 2014 Melbourne Garages re-located and expanded the display centre to provide the ability to showcase more options to our clients. With significant investment they have developed a comprehensive display with Fair Dinkum sheds recently awarding us “most improved display site” and “best national distributor site”. This demonstrates the commitment to the business and clients by providing the best opportunity to view the standard of our work, the quality of our product and professionalism of our office team.

Through dedication to customer service and delivery of quality finished product we have increased the business substantially to become the Mornington Peninsulas premier steel building construction company and one of Fair Dinkum Sheds top national distributors. With our rapid growth from a small family business into a systemised, streamlined company we have been able to maintain the dependability, accountability and service you expect from a local family business.
