FAQs

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 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 quickly can you deliver and when do you deliver?
We generally need 24-48 hours notice for delivery, however, we may be able to offer same-day delivery if we have availability. We deliver Monday to Friday and Saturday until midday with pre-arranged delivery times.
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 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.
