Concrete pump hire cost in South London

Concrete pump hire cost varies from project to project. At Rapid Readymix, we price up our concrete pump hires based on a number of factors, including how much pipeline we require for your site, how long we’re onsite and the complexity of the pour. In this blog, we break down each of these factors to show what goes into the cost of hiring a concrete pump. Read on to see how we work out concrete pump hire prices across London and the South East.

How much is a concrete pump to hire?

The price will vary depending on the length of pipeline required, how long the team is onsite, and the complexity of the pour. Find out more about each of these factors below:

Length of pipeline

Concrete pump hire costs more if we need larger amounts of pipeline to reach your site. Our concrete pump vehicles can carry up to 100 metres of pipeline. We supply 50 metres of pipeline and equipment as standard. If your site needs more pipeline it can be delivered by a separate operator in a van. This generally costs more as we will have to arrange for additional equipment to be delivered.

Time on site

We charge per hour for delivering and pumping your concrete. The longer we’re onsite, the more the concrete pump hire costs. We carry out all pours as efficiently as possible and work with our customers to ensure you’re prepared for our arrival..

Complexity of pour

Our concrete pump hire prices are higher for complex pours. For example, if your site has restricted access or requires significant lengths of pipeline, we charge more as we need to provide additional operatives and potentially specialist equipment to carry out the pour. Don’t hesitate to discuss your requirements with our expert team.

Should I hire a concrete pump for my delivery?

There are a number of reasons to hire a concrete pump. The most common reason is if your site has accessibility issues, such as restricted entranceways or obstacles that would make barrowing difficult. Pumps can navigate areas that barrows simply can’t, ensuring your concrete is still delivered efficiently. But pumps are great for a wide range of other project types too – from swimming pools and flooring to staircases, basements, footings and cellars. They reduce waste by limiting the risk of spillage, which saves you money (by not having to buy more concrete) and keeps the site cleaner. Pumping also requires less manual labour than barrowing, which means you free up your team to work on other areas of your build.
