Frequently Asked Questions
  • Do you work with or alongside any concrete pump companies?

    Please speak with our sales team who will be able to advise on local businesses in your area via our online chat or contact us.  

  • 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. 

  • 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 do I place an order?

    A minimum of 48 hours notice is required for online orders. For orders required with less than 24 hours notice please contact us for availability. All orders will be confirmed back to you by telephone and email before dispatch.

  • When the truck mixer arrives on site, what should I expect?

    When the truck mixer arrives on your site, the driver will assess the required delivery location, and discuss with you the best and safest method of discharging the concrete into the place you require. If it is not possible to get the truck mixer close enough, and you have notified us at the time of ordering that you may require it, off-loading directly into wheelbarrows* will be possible.

    *(1m3 = 25 to 30 wheelbarrow loads!)

    If the truck mixer is required on site for more than 60 minutes, a small additional charge may be applied. It is a legal requirement that the driver washes his chutes before he enters back onto the highway after discharge. This will require a wheelbarrow, waste ground or skip to minimise your mess on site. Every vehicle will have its own wash-off hose and water on board. Please be aware even though we are offering a readymix service, this is still a heavy goods vehicle.

  • 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.

DO NOT WEAR SHORTS, SHORT SLEEVED TOPS OR OPEN SHOES LIKE FLIP FLOPS
