The Basic Information Before you call, gather this basic information —
  • What are you pouring? What are you using the concrete for?
  • How many yards of concrete do you need? For a detailed tutorial on how to measure concrete yardage, please see our DIY Concrete Guide — Or, just call with your project measurements and we can help you figure out how much concrete is needed.
  • Gather the contact info for the person who will be managing the concrete pour on the day of delivery: Name, cell phone number, backup phone number

The following are a few questions that we will likely ask:
  • Date of Concrete Delivery?
  • Name, Address of project, Phone number.
  • Do you need a Concrete Pump? — How many feet to the farthest point of the pour?
  • Do you need Concrete Fiber? — Learn about Concrete Fiber. Read our complete DIY Concrete Guide.
  • Compression Strength? — Compressive Strength Compressive strength must be specified at the time of ordering. (ie. 3000 psi, 3500 psi, 4000 psi, 4500 psi and 5000 psi). More psi = more strength and durability. (Also Note: the higher the PSI the shorter the set time will be.) Typically 80% of the slabs in Florida will be 3000 psi.
  • Will you need a grout mix?
  • Is there a washout area?
  • Will a wheelbarrow be used to transport the concrete?
