The Number One Supplier of Mixed Concrete 

Purchasing concrete is no easy task. After all, when was the last time you ordered concrete? And how often do you order concrete? One of the most common mistakes people make when ordering mixed concrete is either ordering too little or too much. Order too little, and you incur costly delays. Order too much, and you end up paying for wastage. It can be nothing short of a nightmare, but not when you come to the number one readymix concrete supplier – Direct Mini Mix. 

Here at Direct Mini Mix, we’ve made it our mission to simplify the process of buying concrete for any building project. After all, you may never have purchased concrete before, so it’s easy to end up ordering too much or too little. This is where we come in as the most accommodating ready mix concrete supplier. Our approach ensures that you receive precisely the amount you need to complete the work. 

The secret to our service is our mixer, which allows us to volumetrically proportion the raw materials. Our mixer also allows us to adjust the mix and strength of the concrete on-site. By not mixing the concrete at a central batching plant, we can adjust the amount and strength on the fly. Another advantage of our mixer is that it’s possible to have your concrete wet, dry, and then wet again – something that makes us the go-to ready mix concrete company for many customers. 

And best of all is you’ll never be charged for any concrete that you don’t use. So, even if you do end up ordering a little too much, it won’t impact your budget. Plus, if you require screed with fibres or retarder for your project, our mixer can accommodate this as our lorries come equipped with additive tanks.

Preparing the Concrete Supplied by the Top Readymix Concrete Supplier 

Ordering the concrete is only part of the battle; you also need to ensure that the area is prepared correctly before you lay the concrete. Fortunately, you’ve come to the most knowledgeable readymix concrete supplier. We can help you by providing you with all the information you need to ensure correct preparation procedures are followed.  

Preparation is critical. To ensure the best results, simply adhere to the following process: 

  1. Dig down until you reach the hard ground or form a base of hardcore and flatten. 
  2. Ensure the base is as flat as possible – this helps with precisely calculating the depth. 
  3. Make sure that footings are dug at equal width. Water should be pumped or bucketed out if heavy rainfall has occurred. 
  4. Use strong boards secured in the ground to shutter bases. This prevents the concrete’s weight from forcing the boards outwards. 
  5. Lay a polythene sheeting underneath the concrete if the ground is particularly wet/ damp. This stops water from seeping into the concrete. 
  6. Pour, lay and level the concrete. 

Remember that fresh concrete is largely unaffected by light rainfall, which typically evaporates naturally. If heavy rain is expected, you should make sure you have a suitable cover handy. This protects the concrete as heavy rain can cause dips and troughs to form. Make sure that the cover does not touch the concrete. 

Lastly, if frost is expected, you may wish to hold off on laying fresh concrete as frost can cause concrete to crumble if the curing process hasn’t finished. 

Ready Mix Concrete Available for a Wide Range of Projects 

You might think that mixed concrete is only available for specific projects, but concrete can be used for a whole host of applications, all catered to by the number one readymix concrete supplier. Over the years, Direct Mini Mix has fulfilled the concrete requirements of clients ranging from large commercial businesses to domestic households. 

Our mixed concrete is mixed by volumetrically proportioning the raw materials. We use this method to adjust the mix and strength of the concrete to suit different project requirements. Rather than carrying out this function at a central batching plant, we can do this on location. You choose the quantity you need (don’t worry if it’s just a guess), and we’ll get your concrete mixed. If you need more concrete mixed, just let us know. And if we mix too much, don’t worry as we never charge part-load or removal fees. 

Aggregates are fed using a conveyor belt that leads into the hopper. The cement and water are both added, and the mixture is fed into a 2.5m-long screw auger that’s located at the rear of the lorry. The auger can reach up to 5m with extensions if needed. 

Domestic 

Concrete is often used in landscaping projects, with the majority of requests being for driveways and footpaths with the occasional patio. Concrete might be the most attractive option when compared to block paving or resin, but it’s cost-effective, practical, strong, and durable. It’s a low-maintenance option which makes it very popular with homeowners. 

By choosing us as your go-to readymix concrete supplier, you can be confident that we’ll build you a new driveway, footpath or patio that’ll last a lifetime. We can deliver upwards of ½ a cubic metre of concrete for any domestic project. 

Commercial 

Commercial clients tend to place far larger concrete orders and tend to place recurring orders too. We have a large commercial customer base, and with good reason. Our ability to meet the concrete requirements of projects big and small has made us easily the go-to readymix concrete supplier. No request is too much for us to handle, so if you need mixed concrete for any upcoming project, let us know. 

Thanks to our on-site mixing method, you’ll always have the assurance of knowing that the ongoing needs of your project will be met. We can help you hit those tight deadlines by saving you the time you’d waste waiting for concrete to arrive from a central batching plant.

What Else Can We Do Besides Supply Mixed Concrete? 

Besides being the go-to readymix concrete supplier, Direct Mini Mix are also the company of choice for countless other services, including: 

Concrete Collection 

We can deliver concrete and mix it at your site. However, if you’d prefer to collect the concrete from our site, this is an option that’s available to all our customers. Simply head on down to our local plant and choose as much concrete as you’ll need. There’s no need to make an appointment before vising our readymix concrete supplier. Just turn up, and a member of our team will assist you. 

Please note that the minimum load of concrete for collection is 0.3m3, so you’ll need to purchase at least that much.

Screed

If you require high-quality screed, you’ve come to the right readymix concrete supplier. Our screed is made using premium-grade aggregates and cement, ensuring maximum strength, durability, and performance. Our concrete specialists will add fibres and retardants at no extra cost. Fibres increase the strength of the screed, increasing crack resistance. Retardants slow the curing process. 

And for a small charge, we can add an accelerant that enhances and hastens the curing process, making the screed cure quicker than it otherwise would.  

Sand and Gravel

Besides being the number one readymix concrete supplier, we’re also the go-to choice for top-quality sand and gravel. Customers can choose from a selection of sands, soils, and aggregates. Place an order before 3 PM, and we’ll have your order delivered the very next day.  

Concrete Pumping 

In addition to our capacity to mix concrete on-site, we also provide an efficient and affordable concrete pouring service. We use a variety of booms, ranging from 16 metres to 56 metres and can cater to all requests, including: 

  • Slabs 
  • Bases 
  • Footings 
  • Driveways 

The flexibility we offer enables us to pump concrete over various distances and into hard-to-reach areas. Concrete pumping is a far more efficient way of moving mixed concrete over distance. You won’t need to worry about using wheelbarrows. Just call the top readymix concrete supplier, and we’ll provide a concrete pumping solution that’s bespeaking to your requirements. 

Aggregate Collections

Here at Direct Mini Mix, we boast an excellent range of aggregates that perfectly complement our mixed concrete.
