Rapid Readymix are the top-rated local concrete supplier serving customers across London, Surrey and the South East. With our state-of-the-art fleet of mobile volumetric concrete trucks and concrete pumps, we deliver the exact amount of ready mixed concrete that you need, precisely where you need it.
Why choose quality concrete
The quality of your concrete can quite literally ‘make’ or ‘break’ a project, meaning that it’s often a false economy to opt for cheaper materials of inferior quality. While you may initially save £100 or so for the initial pour, you may be left with costly repairs in the long-run.
At Rapid we always supply high-quality concrete because we believe that concrete intended for structural work should always meet strict standards.
Rapid Readymix is a BSI-certified supplier, meaning that our concrete is regularly tested and consistently conforms to the rigorous British Trading Standards specifications. The result? You can be sure that when you buy from Rapid, you’re getting a reliable, long-lasting and high-quality product.
Factors that affect concrete cost
Concrete prices vary widely based on a number of factors, such as the quality of the concrete product, the location of the delivery site, the time needed to complete the pour, the required concrete mix design, and the amount of concrete that you need. Luckily, our expert team are on hand to answer any questions you may have – find out how to get in touch today.
a) Distance to your construction site
The further Rapid Readymix has to travel from our South London facilities, the more we may have to charge. We deliver to our trusted clients in London, Surrey and across the South East. Speak to our friendly team today to get a delivery quote tailored specifically to your site.
b) Time spent on site
The longer we need to spend on site, the more it may cost – which is why we provide an allocated delivery slot and always keep you updated with an ETA on the day. If you have any concerns about issues such as restricted access or traffic control – just give our team a call and we’ll help you find an efficient solution.
Our team will endeavour to make your on-site delivery as quick and efficient as possible. You can help us by preparing your site ahead of time and ensuring that there is enough access space for our volumetric mixers and vehicles. When you work with Rapid, you have the benefit of our experienced team who have worked on all kinds of sites with all kinds of challenges – so rest assured, we’ll work closely with you to overcome any obstacles along the way.
c) Concrete Mix Design
The specific concrete mix design that you require will affect the total price. Concrete is made from a mix of aggregates (sand and stone), cement powder and water. It is the mix design that determines how much of each raw material will go into the concrete. By adjusting the ratios of the materials, concrete suppliers can produce different types of concrete to meet your needs – for example, “kerb mix” concrete or high-strength concrete.
The stronger your concrete, the more cementitious and complex the mix design is. The addition of admixtures or additives can also increase the cost. If you’re unsure, our expert team will be happy to discuss the optimum mix design for your project and provide a bespoke quote based on your requirements.
d) Amount of ready mix concrete delivered
As you would expect, the more concrete that you need to be poured, the more you’ll pay. Speak to our team today for a free, no-obligation quote for your project. At Rapid we can supply concrete for any size job, from smaller domestic applications to large-scale commercial projects. For larger pours, we can ensure multiple trucks are available to deliver “on turnaround” 24/7.
e) If you hire a concrete pump
Have you considered hiring a concrete pump? While it does increase the overall cost, it also brings many benefits – such as being quicker, cleaner and easier, with no heavy lifting required. If your site has hard-to-reach areas and tight spots that make barrowing difficult, a ground line pump (also known as a landline) provides the perfect solution. When limited ground access is the main challenge, a boom pump is ideal, allowing you to pump concrete effectively over tall structures, a stretch of water or across a busy construction site.
When you hire a concrete pump with Rapid, you can rest assured that your pour will go smoothly – from installing the pipeline to tidying up afterwards. Our skilled operators will be on hand to complete your pour safely, efficiently and to the highest standard, so you can focus on laying the concrete.
Arranging concrete pump hire for your site in London, Surrey or the South East couldn’t be easier. Our expert team will be able to advise you on the type of pump that would best suit your site and project requirements and provide a full-package quote, including your readymix concrete and delivery.
Concrete costs can be estimated by measuring the volume of the cavity that you wish to fill. Our concrete calculator is an ideal tool to help.
It’s quick and easy to use – simply measure the dimensions of your site (length, width and depth) and pop them into the calculator to get an estimated quote per cubic metre.
Choose a reliable London Concrete Supplier
Rapid Readymix have been trading for over 10 years, and our glowing customer reviews speak for themselves. Our large fleet of mixers and highly experienced team ensure Rapid’s reliability.
We’ve also recently introduced the AGG SMART system to make our delivery services more efficient than ever. When our office team take your order, they’ll enter your details into the system, triggering a confirmation email that you’ll receive, providing peace of mind that all the logistical requirements have been captured. On the day of delivery, these are conveyed directly to our concrete mixer and concrete pump drivers via their TomTom tablets. They’ll be able to share their ETA directly with you, allowing plenty of time for you to prepare your site for their arrival. Once they’re with you, our drivers will log their arrival time straight into the AGG SMART system, and once the pour is complete, they’ll collect a digital signature from you to allow the invoice to be sent directly to your inbox.
