Money-saving tips for ordering ready mix concrete
- Get the volume right
The last thing you want is to be left with a massive volume of concrete unused at the end of your project. Make sure you get the quantity right, remember, you can always order more, but you can’t return any leftover concrete. Charges apply to take away excess concrete.
It’s critical that all concrete received is of the correct consistency. We put systems in place to ensure that each load that arrives is the same consistency as all the others.
- Buy local
Use a local supplier to cut down on transportation costs.
- Waiting Time
Waiting time is charged after 30 minutes on small truckloads at $1.20 per minute, and after 45 minutes on large truckloads at $2.50 per minute. It is essential to factor this into your planning so as your costs remain within your budget.
