Why Local Volumetric Concrete is Cost-Effective
Custom Concrete’s fleet of volumetric trucks delivers site mixed concrete across Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, and Hertfordshire. Our customers think of us as their local concrete supplier, and they tell us they value the benefits that buying local confers. In this article, we ask the question “Why choose a local concrete supplier?” and we examine the advantages of doing so.
Why Choose a Local Concrete Supplier?
When we speak to our customers about their reasons for choosing a local concrete supplier, their answers fall into 5 specific categories:
1. Local Reputation
Concrete is the foundation to any construction project – literally, so it is always advisable to check out suppliers before contracting them. When the business is local, this becomes easier as you can easily source customers who have had dealings with them in order to find out about the quality of the product, the customer service and the expertise of the staff. People are happy to talk about a good experience, and quick to alert you to a bad one.
2. Prompt Delivery
A concrete pour is a precision operation involving a team of people. In order to maintain your schedule on site, you need to be able to rely on your concrete supplier to deliver promptly and reliably. Concrete that has to be transported over long distances runs more risk of being held up and delayed. Local suppliers know their area well, will schedule deliveries accurately, and proactively problem solve to avoid any delays.
3. A Personalised Service
At Custom Concrete our focus is on the creation of long-term professional relationships with our clients. We want them to come back again and again because of the quality of the concrete we deliver and the kind of service we provide at every stage of purchase and delivery.
- Our Custom Concrete Calculator allows customers to determine the mix and volume of concrete they need when ordering.
- The Customer Service team are concrete specialists who can help with enquiries, offer guidance on mixes, and provide technical information.
- If tweaks need to be made to the mix, or the volume of concrete at the point of delivery, we are happy to oblige.
- Concrete pumps are available to hire, ensuring a prompt and efficient pour.
4. We Deliver to Any Size of Job
Our volumetric trucks provide freshly mixed concrete to residential sites as well as large building sites. As a mix on site concrete supplier we do not make a surcharge on small volume deliveries which increases the cost-effectiveness for DIY customers. We always check access to sites in advance, and proactively work through any potential access challenges with residential customers in order to guarantee prompt delivery.
5. You Pay Only For The Concrete You Use
Volumetric trucks transport the raw materials for your concrete to your site. They are then mixed to your requirement, in order to provide fresh concrete where you require it. There is no waste concrete to get rid of, and you pay only for the concrete you use. We can also guarantee the quality of the concrete mix, because it happens in situ immediately prior to being used.
