pick up your concrete directly
If you would prefer to pick up your concrete directly from our Rapid Readymix yard rather than having us deliver it, we are more than happy for you to collect it. Simply place your order, drive to our South London yard, load up with our ready-to-use concrete and drive it back to your site in London, Surrey or a nearby area. This is particularly useful for projects that require short-notice concrete or that would benefit from complete control over when the concrete is poured. Our concrete collection service is speedy, flexible and convenient. Please note, for collections after 9am we require 1 hour’s notice.
Your concrete mix
We use volumetric mixers to batch our concrete, which means that we are able to create the precise specification of concrete you require – whether that’s lightweight, high-strength or extra-workable. Whichever type of concrete you choose, you can rest assured that it is certified by the British Standards Institution (BSI), achieving BS EN 206-1 and BS 8500. We carry out strict and regular quality checks on our concrete and yard, so, whether your concrete is delivered or collected, you know that it will be high-quality, reliable and consistent.
How to organise your concrete collection
Concrete collection is suitable for small volumes of concrete that can be loaded into your flatbed or pickup truck. To place an order, just give us a call up to 30 minutes before you need the concrete and tell us how much you need (you can use our concrete calculator for a more accurate estimate). Most of our customers collect their concrete in the morning, but feel free to give us a call anytime during the day – we are open between 7am and 7pm.
Smooth concrete collection
Once you have ordered your concrete and told us that you’d like to collect it from our yard, we’ll make sure everything’s in place so that it is mixed efficiently while you wait. We’ll then pour it directly into the truck bed of your flatbed or pickup truck so that you can just drive it back to your project site – freshly mixed and ready to use. Ideally, your concrete should be poured within an hour of being batched to ensure that its high quality, strength and workability are retained, so it is important to take this into consideration when planning your collection.
Our specialist concrete yard
Our purpose-built, 22,000-square-foot concrete yard in South London is specially designed for safe, efficient concrete loading, so you can rest assured that the concrete collection process will be smooth. You will drive into one of our safe loading bays, where our team uses expert equipment to pour the concrete evenly and securely into your vehicle’s truck bed. All our concrete specialists wear the necessary fall arrest and personal protective equipment to keep our clients and team as safe as possible at all times while in our yard.
