What is the difference between Short Load Vs Ready Mix?

Short Load and Ready Mix represent two different aspects of concrete service. Short Load refers to orders that don’t meet the minimum load requirement for a full-size concrete truck, typically less than 10 cubic yards. It’s a convenient option for smaller projects without the need for a full truckload of concrete.

Ready Mix, on the other hand, refers to concrete that’s batched for delivery from a central plant instead of being mixed on the job site. It ensures consistent quality, reduces labor, saves time, and is ideal for large scale projects.

What’s the difference between On-Site Mixing Vs Ready Mix?

On-Site Mixing involves creating the concrete mix right at the construction site with raw materials. This gives you flexibility in adjusting the mix as per changing requirements but demands intensive labor and could lead to inconsistent batches.

Ready Mix, in contrast, is mixed under controlled conditions at a central plant and then delivered to the site. It provides consistently high-quality concrete, reduces waste, saves time, and decreases the potential for human error.

What is our minimum order size?

At ATX Ready Mix & Concrete Delivery, we aim to cater to projects of all sizes. Therefore, we have no strict minimum order size. Whether you’re a homeowner in need of a small concrete mix for a DIY project or a contractor looking for large quantities, we can help. Please contact us to discuss your specific needs.

Where do we get our concrete?

ATX sources its concrete from reputable suppliers who ensure consistently high quality. We understand the importance of reliable raw materials in producing durable and strong concrete. Our Ready Mix concrete is prepared at our plant using these materials following strict industry standards to ensure the best results.

How many yards does an ATX concrete truck hold?

Our standard concrete delivery trucks can carry up to 10 cubic yards of concrete. However, the actual amount may vary depending on the exact specifications of the mix, such as the weight or composition. It’s always best to discuss your specific needs with our team to ensure accurate ordering and delivery.

What is Ready Mix?

Ready Mix refers to concrete mixed at a central plant and then delivered in a mixer truck to the c—this ion site. This production method allows for precise control over the quality and composition of the mix. The benefits of Ready Mix include consistent high quality, reduced work site confusion, and saving time.

  • PSI (Pounds per Square Inch): A unit of pressure used to denote the strength of hardened concrete
  • Slump: A measure of the consistency or workability of fresh concrete
