Why Custom Concrete Customers Prefer Site Mixed Concrete
Feedback is important to Custom Concrete because it lets us know what we’re doing right, and what we could do better. We always ask our Bedfordshire customers to tell us why they choose site mixed concrete, and what benefits they gain from it. Here are the 5 most popular responses we get from customers:
1. Site Mixed Concrete Keeps Costs Down
With mix on-site concrete you get the amount you need, no more, no less. It gives you that extra bit of control which can make all the difference when you are trying to maintain your profit margin. There is no waste in the system, no part-load charges if you only need a small amount, and you never end up throwing out unused product. The Custom Concrete Calculator is really useful in helping you to work out exactly how much concrete to order.
2. Scaling Up and Down
Our volumetric concrete mixers hold twice as much concrete as you can get in a traditional drum mixer. If you’re working on a large construction site, this is the method to choose. Custom Concrete trucks carry up to 8.5 cubic metres per load. Equally, if you only need a small amount, the volumetric mixers can easily scale down the process to provide the exact volume required.
3. You Get the Consistency of Concrete You Need
Sometimes you think you know what consistency you need for a job, but then the weather conditions – for example – dictate something slightly different. It is really helpful to have specialists on site who can offer guidance and tweak the consistency in line with your needs. The team at Custom Concrete are friendly, helpful, and they are real experts when it comes to site mixed concrete.
4. Pump Hire for Pour Efficiency
Site mixed concrete is as fresh as it comes, so pouring it efficiently is important. Custom Concrete offers pump hire, which is both convenient and an excellent service. They offer a line pump which delivers the concrete fast and navigates any obstacles in the way. For sites where the delivery has to be made from above, they also provide boom pump hire.
5. Fresh Concrete is Guaranteed
The volumetric trucks provide a concrete batching plant on your site, so there is no doubt that it is absolutely fresh when you pour it. By contrast, pre-mixed concrete has to be transported from the batching plant to your site. It only takes an unforeseen delay – heavy traffic, for example – to put it at risk of starting to cure. It’s preferable to know that your concrete is as fresh as possible when it is poured.
