Volumetric vs. Ready Mix Concrete
At AMS, we operate our own volumetric concrete mixer trucks, as well as organising ready mix concrete in Bournemouth, but which option is right for your job?
Volumetric concrete in Bournemouth
At AMS Concrete, we are seeing more and more tradespeople, contractors and individuals choose our volumetric service. This is because:
Mix onsite – our volumetric concrete trucks allow for onsite mixing, meaning the mix can be adjusted in realtime to suit the job needs.
Cost-effective – only the exact amount of concrete that is needed is mixed, meaning that costs are kept to a minimum and there is no waste concrete disposal charges to consider.
Convenience – our volumetric concrete mixers can dispatch 1m³ – 9m³ of quality concrete in just one visit. This means that it is suitable for projects large or small.
No time limit – unlike with ready mix concrete, there are no pressured time limits as the concrete is mixed onsite as and when you need it, without having to consider transport time.
Ready mix concrete in Bournemouth
Traditionally, tradespeople and contractors have often opted to use ready mix concrete that is batched at a plant and then delivered to site using a barrel truck. This can often be because of a couple of key reasons:
Speed – typically, ready mix concrete deliveries are dispatched as soon as they arrive onsite as there is no need to create or adjust the mixes. So if time is of the essence, ready mix concrete may be a good choice.
Consistent quality – as ready mix concrete is pre-prepared back at the plant, you may find that there are fewer inconsistencies in the mix that could be caused by environmental factors of the different working environments.
For these reasons ready mix concrete use in Bournemouth is still popular.
However, it is worth noting that if you order the wrong amount of concrete you are likely to incur additional charges and if under ordered you could be faced with the inconvenience of not being able to complete the job.
