Metal sheds rust quickly?

Do metal sheds rust quite fast? If so, how fast and what can be done about this, whether in terms of preventative measures or maintenance?

"Best to go for one that has been galvanised and then if possible sit it on a pre made upstand made from a course of bricks or cast concrete so that it doesn't sit directly on the floor, also check the guarantee and ask the seller for advice, look up comments from previous customers that have bought the product you are interested in, get as much information before you buy, but definitely having it raised will help to prolong its life"
