CEMEX UK, the building materials provider, has introduced a new service for customers requiring small loads of ready mixed concrete, Readymix2go. The service is ideal for those wanting an occasional load such as enthusiastic DIYers, builders, farmers and landscape gardeners, who require a fast local service where they can pay by cash or credit card and can collect if required.
Every year over 20 million cubic tonnes of ready mixed concrete are used in construction projects large and small, with a choice of over 3000 most widely used mixes of ready mixed concrete available. For the inexperienced consumer the usual questions centre round what sort? How much? How do I lay it? Answers to all these questions can be found on the new website www.Readymix2go.co.uk which includes the option to search for the mix of concrete by product or by application through the Application Selector.
The website has practical advice on all aspects of completing the job to a professional standard starting with when the concrete has been delivered how to get it from the truck to the area where it is needed. The different alternatives are outlined including the most popular, that is moving it by barrow. A truck load of concrete, that is 6cu metres, will take approximately 240 barrow loads and 4 people about an hour to move.
There’s additional, essential practical information such as how to use concrete in cold and hot weather conditions, and vital advice on health and safety to make handling and laying of concrete safer.
For customers without internet access, there are local telephone numbers that can be used for advice and information and to place orders for delivery or collection from over 250 local concrete plants. The load, whatever the size, will be mixed by the expert batcher and available to fit in with the customers’ building plan.
