Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Can You Deliver
We can deliver 1 to 7 yards of concrete per truck.
What If I Need More Than I Ordered
We often times have extra materials on board in order to make extra concrete if you need more than you ordered. Since you only pay for what you use, you might consider ordering an extra half yard. Call us to discuss.
What About Hot Loads
We never have hot loads because we make concrete fresh, at the job site.
What About Pumping
We have a pump, but you must arrange for it separately with us in advance. We do not bring the pump to every job unless it has specifically been requested.
Small Volume Delivery of Concrete Using Our Trucks is a Less Expensive Way to Get Concrete. See comparison with buying bags at the home improvement store.Suppose you need just a couple yards of concrete at your location. It takes 60 of the 60# bags to make one yard. The price per bag at the national home improvement companies is about 2.57 per bag. Then you would need a mixer because you and your neighbors can't mix that much concrete in your wheel barrow. Mixer rental cost is about $50 per day. Next you need to transport the concrete and mixer, meaning at least another $50 to rent a truck. You are now easily over $400. Call us and will be less expensive and much less work and risk for you.

BestWay is a Less Expensive Way to Get Small Volumes Delivery of Concrete (Versus Barrel Truck Delivery of Concrete)
Barrel Trucks hold 9 or so yards. If you only need three yards, You are going to be charged an extra trip charge. You also pay an extra clean out fee. They charge you for what you order and you are likely to order a little extra just in case. If they have leftover concrete, many will dump the extra at your location, which could be a big problem. Wouldn't you want the ability to buy only what you use.
