If you’re looking to source concrete for the first time, you’ll be needing to find a supplier who can guide you through the process and help you every step of the way. Or perhaps your previous supplier has let you down or even stopped trading, and you’re looking to find a new supplier with whom you can build a productive and hopefully long-term business relationship.

In either case, it’s best to do some research before you make a decision, so this month we’ll be taking a look at how you should go about choosing the best concrete supplier for your business or project. 

Convenience and speed of supply

Perhaps the first thing you’ll want to know, especially if you’re working to a tight deadline, is whether your potential supplier can deliver  the amount of concrete  required to you, where and when you need it. At EasyMix, we have a fleet of trucks that enables us to supply concrete across London and the South East on a same or next day delivery basis. Not only that, we can also give you a precise time slot so you can plan your work around our delivery – we won’t leave you hanging around unsure  when you’ll be able to get on with your work. And if that weren’t enough, our pumps can get your concrete where it’s needed, even if our trucks can’t get right to the site.

Pay only for what you use

When you order concrete, you naturally only want to be paying for what you use. Some companies will charge for everything that gets delivered regardless of how much of it you use! At EasyMix, we make it easy for you to work out how much you’re going to need with our online calculator. We then mix on site to ensure that you’re only getting the exact quantity you need for your project, with the extra benefit of giving us the flexibility to alter the mix should the conditions at the time make it necessary. Our Volumetric Concrete service is the most flexible and cost-effective means of making sure you get the best mix and best value concrete every time.

Every project covered

If you think that concrete is concrete and that’s all there is to it, you might find that it’s a lot more complicated than that! Different projects require different concrete mixes that will affect the strength, setting rate and application. When you contact a potential supplier, they should want to know as much as possible about your project from the outset. At EasyMix, we supply both commercial and domestic customers and have the knowledge to make sure the concrete we supply is ideally suited for your project every time.

Knowledge, experience and customer satisfaction

We’ve discussed some of the things you should be looking for, and many concrete companies will make these claims. But how can you know if the company can back those claims up? That they have the knowledge and experience to deliver everything you need? At EasyMix, we’re a family-run business with over 20 years of experience in the trade. Our reviews show that our customers like the way we do business, while we have also been trusted by companies like IKEA, Harrods and Chessington World of Adventures to supply their concrete. Take a look at our portfolio to see details of some of the projects we’ve worked on.
