Concrete Delivery Prices
Concrete Delivery Prices can vary widely depending on your own location and the level of competition in the area. The most important factor that you need to consider with concrete delivery is the delivery time involved. This will affect all aspects of your project and is often overlooked by less experienced contractors or DIY enthusiasts. It is important to have an exact time agreed in advance so that you have the building labour on-hand to aid you.
The next factor that needs to be considered when determining the prices of concrete delivery is whether or not the concrete is to be mixed onsite, or whether it is pre-mixed, as is usually the case. It may also be necessary to have a concrete pump used so it is important to ensure this is included in the price. If you are going with a pre mix then it is vital that you consult with the provider on what grade is of concrete is recommended , as to get this wrong could prove disastrous. We would also strongly recommend that it is agreed in advance if there are any time limits for the delivery companies vehicles to be on-site and agree a reasonable surcharge should this be exceeded. Most concrete delivery companies are very accommodating in this respect and will be put at ease knowing that it has been discussed up front.
As with the pricing of any service we strongly recommend that you research strongly in the area in advance. Using a cement calculator can also prove useful. If you have friends or relatives in the business ask them for rough guidelines on what you may expect to be charged. Better still, check out the different concrete delivery prices that are offered online and compare and contrast. Keep a list of these quotes close to hand and then begin calling around your local concrete delivery companies. Be honest and upfront with the company from the start and explain that while you would prefer to use a local company, financial constraints mean that you expect them to be able to match the best offers you can get on line. This policy of honesty should land you with a good concrete delivery price and hopefully a strong long term business relationship.
