Frequently Asked Questions
  • Can I see the concrete before I start offloading?

    You can not see into the concrete mixer drum but our drivers will be happy to run a small amount of concrete down the lorry shoot so you can have a quick look at the consistency. Please be mindful this is only possible if you are offloading the truck as a 'straight tip' into an area or you place a wheelbarrow under the shoot to catch the test concrete. Read our how-to on the day of delivery for more information. 

  • What does the word 'SLUMP' mean?

    It's simple, 'SLUMP' means the consistency of the concrete mix before it sets. Consistency ranges from dry to wet concrete. The lower the slump number the drier the concrete. We supply concrete in four slump classes: S1, S2, S3, S4. Dry concrete mix = S1 and a fluid wet mix = S4. You will need to select the correct slump to ensure easy placement of your concrete depending on where and how the concrete is being placed and for what purpose. Check out our blog on slumps for more information. 

  • How much time do I have to offload the truck?

    You have 1 hour to offload the truck. After that you will be charged at £3 per minute over. Check out our how-to top tips on offloading concrete

  • Will you deliver 24 hours a day?

    Our normal delivery hours are between 07:00 - 17:00, Monday to Friday & 07:00 - 12:00 on Saturdays (subject to delivery area). You will be able to request a time slot when placing your order, and we endeavour to meet that time slot, although we do usually require a minimum of 24-48 hours notice for delivery. Often we can do same day deliveries, should you require this service please contact us and our sales team will do their very best to make this happen for you. Equally, please feel free to chat online to a member of our team. 

  • What happens if I order too much concrete?

    We do not accept returns due to the perishable nature of the concrete products (concrete is not reusable). If you do find you have too much concrete, you would be subject to a charge for the disposal of the remaining concrete (this is in addition to the original cost of the concrete, charges will be detailed on your quote / confirmation order). This is why it is so important that you are accurate when measuring your area and calculating the concrete you require. Our concrete calculator will be able to assist you in ordering the correct amount of concrete you require. 

  • 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


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.
