Having spent 5 years Delivering and erecting sheds and Building shed bases for a shed manufacturer an 8x6 shed base plus the erection of the shed can easily be done within a day if the area is reasonably flat.A Dry mix of sharp sand and cement to place 12 600x600x50mm slabs is suitable for a standard 8x6 garden shed so i would'nt pay any more than £300 for the complete job of base and erection of the shed.You can even sit your shed onto pressure treated bearers which works out a lot cheaper.This was the most popular form of shed base back in the day.hope this helps
