How about changing/cancelling an order if I need to?2022-03-22T13:25:12+00:00

Please note that concrete must be cancelled a minimum of 24 hours prior to delivery. If a delivery is cancelled after this time then a charge of £50+vat per load is chargeable. Orders can be amended/cancelled right up until the point in which the concrete is actually batched.

Can concrete be effected by the weather?2022-03-22T13:23:57+00:00

Yes. We always advise customers not to lay concrete when the temperature is under 5 degrees centigrade. This is because it takes longer to strengthen and set which can lead to cracks. We also advise that you take care when laying concreter in conditions that are particularly hot or windy, as this can cause the concrete to cure quicker than normal.

How long do I have to work with the concrete once it arrives?2022-03-22T13:22:08+00:00

The setting reaction takes place within the concrete mix as soon as the cement is mixed with the water. You have 1-2 hours once the concrete arrives to place and level it out. Higher grade strengths will dry quicker.

Will the truck mixer fit on my drive?2022-03-22T13:20:48+00:00

All our Mini Mix trucks are specifically designed for domestic premises and will fit on the majority of domestic driveways safely.

What preparation should I do?2022-03-22T13:15:11+00:00

For concrete floors and drives you should first dig out the area and remove and top soil. It is also important to build a solid subs0base before laying any concrete. this can be made up of materials such as recycled concrete or granular fill. Google & YouTube are great sources of information for your project.

How much concrete will I need?2022-03-22T13:06:50+00:00

Concrete is measured in cubic meters – Length x Width x Depth (Height) = Metered Cubed (m3). You can use our Concrete Calculator in the ordering process to quantify the amount you will need for your project before ordering.

Why Choose Ready Mix Concrete over mixing it myself?2022-03-22T12:23:43+00:00

Mini Maxi can be more cost effective than trying to mix concrete yourself, especially for smaller domestic projects such as driveways. You save on the expense of hiring/buying mixing equipment as well as the cost of raw materials.

If you’ve never worked with concrete before, we also highly recommended that you don’t attempt to mix the concrete yourself as there is lots that can potentially go wrong.
