How to ensure a smooth ready mix concrete delivery
The success to any project is managing your time effectively so to ensure your delivery of ready mix concrete is smooth and stress free, follow these tips from the experts at Wright Minimix, a leading manufacturer and supplier of concrete.
Choose the right ready mix concrete contractors
Possibly the most important factor of a successful concrete delivery is choosing the right contractor in the first place. A concrete contractor that has several years of experience working in the industry, has built up a respectable portfolio and can provide testimonials from happy customers are all good indicators that your chosen supplier can deliver exactly what they promise.
Establish what you need the concrete for
It’ll come as no surprise that not all concrete is the same and that because of this, you need to know what you will be using the ready mix concrete for before you place an order. If you’re not sure, a reputable concrete contractor will be able to advise you and ensure you receive concrete that has been mixed to the exact specifications for your needs.
Calculate how much concrete you will need
Once you’ve settled on a concrete contractor and established what type of concrete you require, your next step is to calculate how much you need. It’s incredibly important to get this right as you don’t want to be left with too little and having to order more or left with too much and then having to organise and pay for its disposal. If you’re not sure how much concrete you will need for your project, use our handy online volume calculator to give you a good estimation.
Prepare the site for your delivery
Last but not least on the road to a successful concrete delivery is making sure your site it prepared to receive it. This includes making sure access to your site isn’t obstructed, so the delivery truck has clear access, and that the location of the pour is completely ready.
