Snuggeries vs Market Leader

Snuggeries Vs. the “Market Leader”

We pride ourselves on offering a high specification, best-in-class, premium product as standard.

It can be disheartening when you see garden rooms being offered with a very attractive “from” price, to then learn that elements you’d perhaps expect as standard bump the total cost up significantly. We don’t like to compromise, and we don’t expect you to either.

At Snuggeries, we pride ourselves on offering a high specification, best-in-class, premium product as standard. In fact, we are so confident about our bespoke garden rooms that we decided to put our specification (and prices) to the test against who we believe is the “market leader” (in terms of turnover at least).

The results surprised even us and we think they’ll be an eye opener for you.

Take a look below and see for yourself how we compare on each and every element. Why not even print this out and test us against any other supplier – we’d love to know how we compare.

This comparison is based on a 6m x 5m garden room of similar look and feel (eventually). We compared our Snugg that has an all inclusive price of £34,000 vs. their starting price for the same size at £26,700.

In a nutshell…

As you can see, in every single area we are confident our product is superior. It’s why we are happy to tout “Premium as Standard”. And by the time you add all the extras to the total price, the market leader comes in at £35,760 – £1,760 more expensive than a premium Snugg!

So you’ll end up paying more for a lower specification garden room than you would for one of our premium Snuggs. Plus, the lower spec garden room will inevitably cost you more to heat during the winter, further highlighting why a Snugg is the obvious choice when you’re looking for both quality and ROI.

We want our customers to enjoy the experience of buying a Snugg and benefit from a completely transparent process, so we can deliver a bespoke garden room that you can be proud of.

Please take our list and put us to the test. We would love to hear how you get on. In fact, feel free to challenge us or create your own similar list and send it to us at info@snuggeries.co.uk
