is interesting I have to admit, but price is painful.
good there is a spare slot re electrics.
free standing racks are ok and will only need a plank under the feet to spread the load.
so long as the decking is stable and flat i would think it should be a reasonable base for a shed if the deck planks are at 90 degrees to the shed floor joists.if it is very wonky when you put a level and strait edge to it to check using 3 sheets of roofing board might be handy to give a flat level base, using the shims under the boards rather than direct under the joists which makes the thing stand on tip toe instead of flat footed.
ps they are fairly easy to put together and judging by the state of our one a diy job is likely to be better than an installer stapling the felt on for instance
pps adding plenty of mastic and a layer of heavy duty felt to a new shed will avoid having to do major roof repairs in a few years,run the extra felt over the soffits as water getting behind them is a main cause of rot in the roof timbers.(as is damp see note on extra ventilation)
Ship lap is about £13m2 and treated battens about £1 a metre. Or buy the stuff and pay s chippy to do it for you?

We have a couple of those metal flatpack containers and they are very good. Main problem with them is condensation, so you would have to be very careful about insulation. We mainly use them for storage, but also as a small workshop.
We are also looking at these. They seem very solid and there might be something within your budget. http://www.skinnerssheds.co.uk/
