We advise that you do not place concrete during freezing conditions. If it is likely that overnight temperature may dip below 0°C, an air gap should be left between the layer of plastic sheeting and the top of the concrete surface.

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.
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.
We will always do our best to deliver your concrete all in weather conditions. However please be mindful that some products may not be suitable to lay in conditions below 5 degrees and over 30 degrees. It is best you keep an eye on the forecast and speak to a member of our sales or technical team via our online chat or contact us if you are unsure.
There is always a risk with regards to health & safety when handling concrete. To ensure the safety of the people involved, no matter the size or location of the job, we strongly recommend you take the time to read our concrete Health & Safety datasheet and the information on our guide to Handling Concrete Safely, including our Health & Safety Video.
For truck dimensions, please visit our truck dimensions page. This will help you to decide whether our vehicle will safely fit onto your site. If the truck appears too big for your job, don't worry, there are other options for offloading your concrete, such as via a concrete pump, which we can discuss with you.
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 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.
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.
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.
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
