Before you Order

Ordering concrete for the first time can be a bit difficult. Spend some time on this page to prepare yourself, and if you have questions about concrete (or prefer live answers), feel free to call our office.

How much concrete does your project require?
We have provided a Concrete Calculator to help you estimate the amount of concrete needed for your project. Make sure to allow extra for uneven sub-grades and spillage, and then round up to the closest 1/4 yard.

Are you ready?
Make sure you are ready when the truck arrives. We charge extra for longer deliveries (in excess of 7 minutes per yard), so it is important to have enough help and be ready. We try our best to get as close to your desired delivery time as we can. We’re usually within fifteen to thirty minutes of the requested time. Time and temperature affect the performance and ability to pour the concrete from the truck, so please understand the need for an organized job. Using our Quality Concrete will help produce a quality result.

Is your project accessible?
Our trucks are big vehicles, often weighing up to 80,000 lbs. when fully loaded. We try not to leave the street and curb line unless absolutely necessary and then only with your permission. Carefully plan how the truck can access the job. Electrical overhead wires and trees and a narrow driveway can make the process very difficult. Soft terrain or landscaped yards also present a real problem when an 80,000 lb. vehicle tracks across it. Think safe! Be safe!

ORDERING CONCRETE
Once you’re ready to go, it’s easy. When you call to place an order, it is extremely important for you to be able to provide us with as much information as possible. When placing your order, we’ll want to know:

  1. CONTACT INFORMATION
    Name
    Company
    Phone Numbers
  2. DATE AND TIME
    Delivery schedules can fill up fast. It works best to place order one to two days in advance although we will try to accommodate same day orders.
  3. DELIVERY INFORMATION
    Job Site Address
    Nearest Intersection
    Zip Code
  4. PROJECT DESCRIPTION
    Sidewalk, Garage Floor, Patio, Etc…
  5. MIX AND SLUMP
    We can help you determine the proper mix and slump based on your project type.
  6. QUANTITY
    Make sure to double-check your figures and always order 10% extra concrete to compensate for settling, an uneven sub-base, and/or spillage. Then round your order up to the nearest 1/4 yard.
  7. TRUCK INTERVALS
    If your project needs more than one truck load, you will need to determine how long it will take you to unload each truck. We can help if you let us know how you are planning to place the concrete.
  8. VALUE ADDED PRODUCTS
    Color, Fibers, Re-bar, Etc…
