Preparing for a Mixed On Site Concrete Delivery
At Custom Concrete our priority is to provide the very best experience for our customers, from ordering through to delivery. In order to achieve this, the process is broken down into 3 simple steps:
- Calculate Concrete Required – using our custom concrete calculator.
- Order Volumetric Concrete – our volumetric fleet can carry up to 8.5 cubic metres per load.
- Your Mixed On Site Concrete is Delivered – no waste to dispose of.
We deliver to both commercial and domestic sites across Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire. In this blog we offer 5 simple tips on preparing for a mixed on site concrete delivery. Follow these for a streamlined delivery experience.
1. Check the Weather Forecast
We like to know what the weather is doing in the UK, so check a forecast for your delivery date. If the conditions are expected to be adverse (snow, ice, or torrential rain), you may want to choose an alternative. If, however, there are likely to be occasional showers, you can prepare with a covering, such as tarpaulin, to protect the concrete from getting rained on.
2. Give Neighbours Warning of the Delivery
Some of the sites we deliver to are in quiet residential areas. In these circumstances it is an excellent practice to let neighbours know when the delivery will take place. You can simply print out explanatory slips and post them through letterboxes. Even on commercial sites, neighbouring businesses welcome advance knowledge of deliveries that may disrupt their routine, or create excess noise.
3. Site Access
Custom concrete trucks are 10 metres long, 2.5 metres wide. Please make sure access is suitable to take the weight of our heavy trucks and ensure it is reasonably level.
If site access is limited why not hire a concrete pump?
4. Site Preparation
Always make sure you have all the equipment you need ready in advance.
Mark levels, make your tamp and make sure you have the correct float for the finish you desire.
