Ready Mix Concrete | FAQ’s
Do I need to know the exact quantity when ordering?
No, just roughly. You only get charged for amount you have.
How do I work out how much concrete I need?
L x H x W. Length times the height times the width. All in metres, this will give you the volume in metres cubed (m3)
How much does concrete weigh?
One cubic metre of concrete weighs about 2.3 tonnes which equates to approximately 20-23 barrow loads.
I only want a small amount of concrete is that a problem?
There are no such thing as problems only solutions. We specialise in small loads from 0.5m3 upwards at a very competitive price.
How far can the lorry reach?
The mixer has a reach of about 5m from the back of the truck and about 3.5m from the side.
Will the lorry fit in my drive way?
The dimensions of the lorry are: width-3m, length–10.5m, height-3.75m.
Access is tight will the mixer load wheel barrows?
Yes, this is not a problem, we can even bring a barrow with us if asked when ordering.
How long in advance do I have to order the concrete?
Ideally two days, but if you need the concrete on the same day we will do our best to fit you in.
Does the driver of the mixer drink tea or coffee?
He will probably drink tea but ask him just in case.
