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.
