Frequently Asked Questions

Not found what you are looking for?

Frequently Asked Questions
  • Do you mix the concrete onsite?

    No, we pre-mix the concrete at our batching plant (as per each individual order) and then deliver this to you (ready to use) on our truck mixers. There is no extra 'just in case'. Please ensure you check your measurements carefully to ensure you are ordering the correct amount. If you over or under order, it can be very costly. Please use our Concrete Calculator to assist you.

  • Will someone come and install the concrete for me?

    No, we only provide the pre-mixed concrete to you on our mixer truck. The offload and laying of the concrete would be down to you. You may already have a builder for this or may need to hire someone. Alternatively, you may decide to do the work yourself with help from friends or family. If this is the case please look at our How to guides for assistance and please thoroughly read and watch our concrete Health & Safety information.

  • Can I collect my concrete from you?

    Yes, we welcome customers to collect from our plants. The enquiry page will advise you as to which of our plants will be your nearest for collection. Please note, you can only collect concrete using certain types of vehicles due to the loading process and the weight restrictions. Please see our Guide to Collecting Concrete for more information.

  • I require further assistance ?

    Should you have any queries relating to our online ordering site please Call Us, or Contact Us via the website. You can also talk to us using the online Live Chat option. 

  • How much does a cubic metre of concrete weigh?

    One cubic metre of concrete weighs around 2.4 tonnes. That equates to about 25-30 wheelbarrow loads per 1m3!

  • What if I want to change my order?

    Changes can be made to orders if we have enough notice. Making changes on the same day, or close to the time of delivery could cause an issue. It's important that you have all of your concrete mix and quantity information correct at least 24 hours before delivery. If you feel you are unsure and need help to confirm you have everything correct, please contact our sales team who will be happy to assist you. 

  • What do I do if I need to cancel my order?

    If you need to cancel your order please get in contact with us as soon as possible. We require a minimum of 24 hours notice when cancelling a delivery. Cancellations with less then 24 hours notice will be subject to a cancellation fee. If you have any questions regarding cancellations, please feel free to contact us.

  • What are the hazards of wet concrete?

    Exposure to wet concrete can result in skin irritation or even first, second- or third-degree chemical burns. It is important to always wear full PPE. If your skin comes into contact with wet concrete wash with water immediately and seek medical advice. Read our H&S guidance for further support.

  • What precautions should I take when handling concrete?

    • Wear the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
    • Use the right tools to meet the needs of the job
    • Employ the correct techniques when laying
    • Have a washing station nearby
    • Wear additional PPE
    • Exercise caution around mixing equipment ensuring space available
    • Communicate with your team about the safety measures expected
    • Always stay aware of your surroundings and others

Watch our Health and Safety video

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE)

Wearing the right clothing to handle concrete is highly important and essential for your safety. You may be refused on site without the correct PPE with you. Minimum levels of correct PPE should be worn by everyone involved in the laying of the concrete delivery.

MINIMUM PPE:

  • Waterproof boots
  • Trousers
  • Gloves
  • Long sleeve top
  • Safety glasses

 

All should be worn to prevent any splashes getting on to the skin, face or eyes.
