FAQs & Specs


If you have any questions about our concrete products or services have a look through these frequently asked questions. If you need more help for piece of mind why not contact us and let one of our team help you with your query.
What are your opening times?
Monday-Friday: 8am-6pm
Saturday: 8am-4pm
How quickly can you deliver and when do you deliver?
We offer free same-day or next day delivery if we have availability. We deliver free Monday to Friday 8am - 5pm and Saturday until midday with pre-arranged delivery times.
What is a volumetric mixer?
Volumetric mixers produce and mix the readymix on site as opposed to a drum mixer where the readymix is mixed at a concrete plant and then loaded into a drum mixer for transport. As readymix is freshly produced on site you have maximum workability, and the exact amount you require 'No Over or Under Ordering' so jobs with uneven shapes or uneven depth will never be a problem again.
How big are the vehicles?
Whilst our mixers may fit onto a drive, it is your responsibility to ensure that your property can support the weight of the vehicle. (Vehicle dimensions 2.4m width x 3.7 height x 9 metres length.)
What are your delivery costs?
Delivery is free. The delivery is included with the price of a m3.
What concrete do I need?
We can advise you on the correct mix to use, we supply mixes suitable for driveways, slabs, paths, footings, internal floors, stables and farm buildings etc.
Can you discharge into wheelbarrows?
All mixers carry two wheelbarrow for our customers to hire, we would however recommend that you also have additional barrows available, especially if you have ordered more than one metre. One cubic metre of concrete weight 2.4 tons which equates to 25-30 wheelbarrows.
How do I pay?
We accept payment by credit or debit card, BACS and cash.
Do you have advice regarding protective clothing?
It is vital that you wear protective clothing ie goggles, impervious boots, trousers and long sleeved clothing when working with ready mixed concrete.
Where do you deliver to?
We are happy to deliver anywhere in Sussex; including Arundel, Brighton, Eastbourne, Hailsham, Horsham, Hove, Lewes, Littlehampton, Peacehaven, Rottingdean, Seaford, Shoreham and Worthing.
How can I calculate what I need?
We specialise in smaller deliveries and appreciate that it can be difficult to estimate exactly how much you need; for help and guidance on this, you can use our concrete calculator or alternatively, give us a call with your approximate measurements and we’ll do the rest!

    From enquiry to pumping concrete on site, I found the service was great. I will be using McHugh on my next job in Brighton, just a shame they are not available in South London.

    Being the first time I’ve ever needed concrete on this scale I was a tad unsure. But the lady I spoke to when making the booking was really helpful and gave good advice, she immediately emailed me my quote and really didn’t push the sale. I phone a couple of other places, price seemed about the same so as she was so friendly I called back. I got a text and email the day before confirming the delivery slot. Then on the delivery morning I got a text with a more accurate time. The driver Gavin was a lovely bloke, really helpful and put no pressure on us to barrow the concrete quicker. He even sprayed the pavement and cleaned up after us. I used slightly less than I ordered and the invoice was reduced correspondingly. I’ve got a larger order to fill in a few months, I’ll deffo be using them again. Thanks
