At last there's an alternative to bulk delivery of ready-mixed concrete & screed that doesn't mean manual mixing.

Mixamate provides the happy medium - a super- convenient service that supplies concrete & screed when you want, where you want, and in whatever quantities you need. It's the most flexible concrete & screed delivery service there is. Mixamate mixes on site to your actual requirement - not your rough estimation. So we deliver the exact amount you need - no more, no less.   Mixamate Concrete & Screed are proud to introduce their latest design of our Conqueror vehicle to our customers. First introduced into our business in 2005 the Conqueror has revolutionised the way that both Concrete and Screed is produced by an on site mix operation.   This unique vehicle batches each and every mix by weighing all of the materials in the production of our Concrete and Screed which is undoubtedly the most accurate and efficient method available today, all controlled via its on board computer. Linked to a central printer it also gives a complete breakdown of the mix that has been batched right throughout the production, inclusive of any admixtures that have been requested.   The capacity of these vehicles is 12metres of Concrete or 20 tonnes of Screed making it the largest capacity of any vehicle on the market in fact it is so versatile it is able to produce quantities of both products from a single delivery.   Even discharging our products Mixamate is able to offer alternative methods via its discharge conveyor which will extend to a full 3.7m ( 12 feet ) through a discharge arc of 170 degrees from the rear of the vehicle into one of the three wheelbarrows carried on the vehicles for our customers use at no addition cost, or via our on board rubber track Mini Dumper.   This Mini Dumper has the ability to hold a third of a cubic metre which is operated for you by one of our fully trained drivers and is able to enter openings as low as 800mm and above for those restricted access contracts you may have.
  Mixamate's Concrete and Screed is mixed fresh on site at the point of delivery thus eliminating any potential loss of workability. Special mixes are also catered for using the on board weighed batched system thus allowing a wide range of both liquid or powder admixtures or the introduction of fibres to meet our customers requirements.   The Conqueror allows customers to purchase as little or much as they require as you only pay for what you lay. Give the Conqueror a try, and experience the difference for yourself.

Concrete Calculator

To calculate the exact amount of concrete you require please visit our concrete calculator

The proportions of materials for a C20P (P = Portland cement) mix are 1 x cement, 2 x fine aggregate (sand) and 4 x coarse aggregate. If you are using a premixed ballast, then 6 of these are mixed with 1 cement. If the sand and aggregates are dry, then a water to cement ratio of approximately 0.55 should be used, For example, if you require 25kg of cement in your mix, then 25 x 0.55 = 13.75kg (liters) of water. This is the maximum amount of water that should be used. Most of the time however, the sand etc is damp, or even very wet, and care has to be taken to ensure your mix does not become too sloppy. It should be able to support itself, almost fully, in a heap on the shovel.

When mixing a very strong mix, normally labelled C35P the mix is 1 cement, 1 stone and 2 sand or 1 cement to 3 ready mixed aggregate.

When mixing concrete you will find that, while the ballast will heap up nicely on your shovel, the cement will slide off. This will give you incorrect proportions when mixing,1 of cement should be equal to 1 of ballast. It is better to measure your quantities using a bucket to ensure correct proportions. Mixing by hand is a bad idea unless you only have a tiny amount to do. Only very rarely will you be able to get the cement evenly distributed throughout the mix and this leads to weak concrete so always use a cement mixer.

To ensure a well mixed batch we suggest you add your ingredients to the mixer in the following order. 75% of the water followed by 50% of the aggregates. Add all of the cement and then the rest of the aggregates and the remainder of the water.

Input your dimensions in meters I.E. 500mm = 0.50 meters then click the volume button the answer will be given in cubic meters. Then click on the quantities button to get the amounts of cement sand and aggregate.

Mixamate Screed Service

Mixamate Screed

At last, the mixed on site screed service that you have been waiting for!

Like concrete screed delivery is one of Mixamate's core services, and the quality of our mix on site product is equal to any form of ready mixed screed you will find from a batching plant.

Utilising our weigh batched computer controlled Conqueror machine a consistent quality screed is guaranteed and with each batch including a retardant the mix maintains its workability for 6 hours, allowing you sufficient time to place and finish.

This means that Mixamate provides you with the most convenient flooring and external screed delivery service there is - when you want it, where you want it and in whatever quantities you need.
 

Sand & Cement Screed

Sand and cement screed is ideal for a wide range of general flooring and roofing applications.

Screed is suitable for use on suspended floors or as a topping to lightweight screeds and insulation, and it is possible to pump floor screed with the appropriate pump. Mixamate would be happy to recommend a screed pump hire company that we often work closely with. 

For ready mix screed prices, please call your local Mixamate branch via the Contact page on our website, and a member of our dedicated team will be on hand to help. Of course, you can also contact us in this way for concrete delivery prices.

We can assist estimating quantities, discuss screed types and mixing screed requirements and we even have a list of professional screeders that we can recommend to you. Please note our minimum charge is for 2 tonnes of screed delivered. Our screed is manufactured on site in our vehicles pan mixer therefore our operators are able to adjust the consistency to your exact requirements.
 

How Much Screed Will I Need?

To calculate the exact amount of screed you need for the job please use Mixamate's Screed Calculator.

How long will my screed take to dry?

A Standard screed will on average dry at a rate of 1mm per day, i.e. if your screed was placed at a depth of 75mm your screed would require 75 days to fully complete the drying process before you should apply any finishing’s to the surface. Screed will generally allow foot traffic after 48 hours. If quicker drying times are required please contact us about Q-Screed - our quick drying screed additive.
 
 

Straight Pour Service

Straight Pour

Whenever possible we will always try to deliver the concrete by straight pour.

When deciding whether a straight pour can be achieved it must be remembered that the truck is 10 metres long and 2.6 metres wide and, when fully loaded, it will be 32 tons.

A point to bear in mind is that domestic driveways were never designed to take a vehicle of this size, so for deliveries proposed off the public highway we will ask that our delivery ticket must be signed before our entry and that customers accept responsibility for any potential damage/ failure that may arise from the requested action.

Alternatively, please take a look at our Concrete Pumping section.
 

Concrete Pumping

Concrete Pumping

Our technology now allow all sizes of work to be pumped directly into the location desired. It’s a modern alternative to wheelbarrowing, and can accommodate higher volume of concrete being placed per hour, than any other methods.

The concrete can cleanly be placed over, under, around or behind obstacles, making it ideal for locations with difficult access points. The Concrete can be placed quickly and it eliminates the requirement for cranes, buckets, elevators and wheelbarrows. A mobile concrete pump can locate concrete for footings, slabs, bridges, new builds, extensions, swimming pools, general building. The list is endless!

Alternatively, you might find our unique Mini Dumper service useful.
 

Mini Dumper Service

The Mixamate Mini-Dumper Service

Weighing in with a massive third of a cubic metre capacity and an ultra slim width of less than 800mm, or 36 inches in “old money”, our mini dumper is the vital component in saving our customers time and money when utilising the Mixamate Mini Dumper Service.

Not only can the mini dumper save you money allowing you to minimise your valuable labour resources or deploy them elsewhere on your site but it can save you time placing 6-7 conventional wheel barrow loads in one go.

Operated by our experienced drivers, the mini dumper can turn on a sixpence (or 2.5p in new money!) and gain access to those awkward areas on site. The mini dumpers rubber tracks come into their own when making deliveries over rough or uneven terrain.

The mini dumper is so versatile that it could eliminate the need for the costly pumping of concrete.

If you would like to know more about this innovative, time and money saving service please give us a call for a quote on your next job.

If it is not possible to use the dumper then we also offer barrows for use in harder to reach areas.

Barrowing

Barrowing

Barrowing still accounts for most of our delivers. We carry 3 barrows on the truck which are free to use. There is an average of 20 barrows to the cubic metre, if you work on the basis that two men can move a metre by barrow if the run is within 30 metres (100 feet) of where the truck is parked.

But always remember we have a mini dumper service, please see the section on the mini dumpers to see if this is an option.
 

The Conqueror Machine

Mixamate Concrete & Screed are proud to introduce their latest design of our Conqueror vehicle to our customers.

First introduced into our business in 2005 the Conqueror has revolutionised the way that both Concrete and Screed is produced by an on site mix operation.

This unique vehicle batches each and every mix by weighing all of the materials in the production of our Concrete and Screed which is undoubtedly the most accurate and efficient method available today all controlled via its on board computer.

Linked to a central printer it also gives a complete weight breakdown of the mix recipe that has been batched right throughout the production of our customers chosen mix requirements inclusive of any admixtures that have been requested and added.

The capacity of these vehicles is 12metres of Concrete or 20 tonnes of Screed making it the largest capacity of any vehicle on the market in fact it is so versatile it is able to produce quantities of both products from a single delivery.

Even discharging our products Mixamate is able to offer alternative methods via its discharge conveyor which will extend to a full 3.7m ( 12 feet ) through a discharge arc of 170 degrees from the rear of the vehicle into one of the three wheelbarrows carried on the vehicles for our customers use at no addition cost, or via our on board rubber track Mini Dumper. This Mini Dumper has the ability to hold a third of a cubic metre which is operated for you by one of our fully trained drivers and is able to enter openings as low as 800mm and above for those restricted access contracts you may have.

Mixamate Concrete and Screed is mixed fresh on site at the point of delivery thus eliminating any potential loss of workability. Special mixes are also catered for using the on board weighed batched system thus allowing a wide range of both liquid or powder admixtures or the introduction of fibres to be added to the mix to meet our customers requirements and specifications.

The Conqueror allows customers to purchase as little or much as they require as you only pay for what you lay.

Give the Conqueror a try, and experience the difference for yourself.

Advantages Over Ready Mix

If you need a vast amount, ready-mixed concrete is perfectly suitable, but the large-scale ready-mixed suppliers can't always cater for the smaller quantities.

Mixamate specialises in the small amounts, so we're the ideal delivery service for small and medium sized jobs like driveways, garage bases, garden paths, footings and oversites. For more information please visit the Advantages over Ready Mix section of our website.

Mixamate can be far more cost efficient than mixing it yourself. Mixamate saves you the expense and inconvenience of hiring equipment and allocating valuable labour to mix concrete - and of wasting time waiting for another delivery if you've underestimated the amount of materials required.

Concreting with Mixamate

Concrete is easy to use and versatile. Its strength, durability and relative cheapness make it the ideal material for drives, paths, garage and shed bases.
 

When You Are Ready to Order

When you are ready to order, contact your nearest Mixamate and specify the mix that you want and the quantity in cubic metres that you require. Agree a delivery time, giving at least 24 hours notice.

The delivery driver will be as helpful as possible in manoeuvring his truck as near to your work area as he can. However, it is possible that you will have to move some concrete, either to your work area, or from one part of the project to another.

Remember that 1 cubic metre of concrete weighs about 2.5 tonnes which means approximately 20 barrow loads, and that you will only have an hour or so before the concrete starts to go off. So ensure you have adequate manpower for the job.
 

Concrete FAQ

FAQ

At last there's an alternative to bulk delivery of ready-mixed concrete that doesn't mean manual mixing. Mixamate provides the happy medium - a super-convenient service that supplies concrete when you want, where you want, and in whatever quantities you need.

It's the most flexible concrete delivery service there is. Mixamate mixes on site to your actual requirement - not your rough estimation.

For answers to many of the common questions we are asked by our customers including about screed please take a look at the FAQs below.

Additionally, for anything that is not answered here and for concrete delivery prices, please visit our contact page to get in touch with a dedicated member of our Mixamate team, who would be happy to help you further.

Laying the screed

I'm not sure how much concrete I need, can you help me?

Surveys have shown that even professional builders can over or underestimate the amount of concrete they need by up to 40%. Often it's only possible to make a rough guess, but a rough guess is all we need. You can even use our Concrete Calculator to help you. Phone us with just an approximate idea of how much you'll need and we'll be there fast, ready to mix the exact amount of concrete needed to suit your requirements.
I only need a very small amount of concrete...will you deliver this amount?

Our minimum delivery charge is 1 metre - although if you need to use less you can use less, so we're the ideal delivery service for small and medium sized jobs like driveways, garage bases, garden paths, footings and oversites.
How much concrete can you delliver?

Our system guarantees the maximum efficiency for the minimum trouble. Our unique purpose built Mixamate vehicles carry enough cement, aggregate and water to mix up to12 cubic metres in a single delivery.
Isn’t it cheaper to mix the concrete myself?

Mixamate can be far more cost efficient than mixing it yourself. Mixamate saves you the expense and inconvenience of hiring equipment, estimating the amount of raw materials you need and allocating valuable labour to mix concrete. Remember, one cubic metre of concrete weighs over 2.5 tonnes or over 20 full barrow loads which involves a lot of hard work. If you've over or underestimated the amount of materials required for the job you also have a big problem.
 

How long have I got to get the concrete laid?

Because Mixamate is mixed fresh at the site there's no danger of it losing workability before placement and compaction. The price you pay includes all the time you need to wheel and lay the concrete - a full 20 minutes per metre (in the unlikely event you need longer the driver will wait for an additional charge)

My job is at the back of the house, will you be able to deliver to me?

Site access can be a problem for a large ready-mixed truck, but not for Mixamate. As well as the many specialist contractors we number among our regular customers, even the largest of national construction companies have called us when awkward access or difficult terrain has made bulk delivery impossible.
 

I haven’t got anyone to help me on the wheel barrows, what can I do?

Why not take advantage of our Mini-Dumper service. For a small extra cost one of our fully trained operators will place the concrete utilizing our tracked mini dumper. With this service we allow 20 minutes per metre and as its only 800mm wide we can delivery to all of those awkward to reach places.
 

What should I do when I am ready to order my concrete?

Phone your local Mixamate office on the freephone number shown on our contact page.
 

Screed Questions

It is not possible to transport the screed from the lorry in wheel barrows can youu recommend an alternate method?

Yes it is possible to pump floor screed with the appropriate pump. Mixamate would be happy to recommend a screed pump hire company that we often work closely with. We are able to deliver the screed direct into the pump for pumping right to your discharge point. Mixamate drivers are fully trained in the safe operation of a screed pump and are able to offer this service at a small extra charge.
 

It has been suggested that I need a very strong fast drying screed, can you help?

Additives such as Q-Screed can be added into the screed during mixing during our mixing. The flexibility of Mixamate and our vehicles is such that we can make screeds to your specification. Please contact us for any speciality screed requirements, we will be only too pleased to help.


I have never laid screed before and am unsure how much I need or how to do it...

At Mixamate we are here to help. We can assist estimating quantities, discuss screed types and requirements and we even have a list of professional screeders that we can recommend to you. Please note our minimum charge is for 2 tonnes of screed delivered.


My screeders prefer their screed to be slightly wet and this usually causes a problem when having screed delivered...

Our screed is manufactured on site in our vehicles pan mixer therefore our operators are able to adjust the consistency to your exact requirements.
 

How long will my screed take to dry?

A Standard screed will on average dry at a rate of 1mm per day, i.e. if your screed was placed at a depth of 75mm your screed would require 75 days to fully complete the drying process before you should apply any finishing’s to the surface. Screed will generally allow foot traffic after 48 hours. If quicker drying times are required please contact us about Q-Screed - our quick drying screed additive.
I’m not entirely sure how much material I need and am worried about over ordering...

The Mixamate batching system onboard the vehicle is completely computer controlled and can be stopped at any point. Therefore we only produce the exact amount of materiel that you need. There is no waste or mess and no part load charges, and best of all you only pay for what you lay.

Can I get Concrete and Screed on a Saturday?

Yes, we can supply you up to 12.00pm on a Saturday at no additional cost. Please get in contact with a member of the Mixamate team, preferably giving at least two days advanced notice, and we would be happy to arrange this for you.
Will your Mixamate vehicles be able to access my site?

Concrete How-To Guides

How-To Guides   Welcome to the How-To section of our site. Here you should be able to find helpful hints & tips relating to working with mix-at-site concrete. To find out how Mixamate may be able to help you on a specific job, you can also find further information on our Services page.
  Tools for the Job Most homeowners will probably have most of the tools and materials required to lay ready mixed concrete, but it may help to check through the list below before you order. We supply:
  • 2 wheelbarrows on each lorry
To ensure a good job is done you will need:
  • Straight Edge - (for levelling)
  • Rake - for moving concrete
  • Shovels
  • String - for setting out
  • Tape measure
  • Hammer and nails
  • Float - for finishing surface
  • Timber - for pegs, formwork and tamping beam
  • Spirit level
  • Wood saw
  • Brush - for possible surface finish and cleaning up
Laying the Concrete Spread the concrete between the formwork using a rake to distribute it evenly so that the top is about half an inch (15mm) higher that the required finish level.   Ensuring that all corners and edges are completely filled by treading the concrete in with the soles of your Wellington boots or by pushing it down with a piece of wood. Starting at one end use a heavy wooden tamping beam to compact the concrete, and move slowly along the slab removing any excess concrete. If necessary repeat this operation until the concrete is fully compacted and the surface is level with the top of the framework.
Finishing the Surface
Concrete can be left as tamped in which case the finish will depend on how carefully you tamp. Alternatively, there are a number of different surface finishes which can be produced after tamping.   A fine or coarse non-skid surface can be made by drawing a soft or hard sweeping brush across the surface of the concrete. Working a wooden float across the surface will give a textured surface which can be straight or circular design depending on how you move the float. A steel or plastic float will give a smooth finish.   As soon as the concrete has hardened enough not to be marked. it should be covered with polythene, weighted down at the edges, to stop it drying out too fast. The polythene can be removed after two or three days. Fresh concrete should not be allowed to freeze, so don't lay when frost is likely unless you are prepared to insulate it with a 4 inch (100mm) layer of straw between two layers of polythene or a thermal blanket.
Curing
It is a common misconception that concrete should be left to dry out. THIS IS NOT TRUE! Especially on hot, dry, or windy days, it is important that the concrete be protected from drying too quickly, as this can cause cracking of the fresh concrete to occur. A weighted down polythene sheet or tarpaulin stops the concrete drying too rapidly, and helps the material develop maximum strength.
Antifreeze for Concrete
There is no such thing as antifreeze for concrete, although you can put an accelerator into the mix which can be especially useful in winter. Follow the advice above with regard to keeping heat in for the first 24hrs.
  A Good Job is Well Planned Time spent in planning the job will be repaid many times during subsequent stages of the project. Start by sketching a plan to see how things will fit.   If you draw this to scale it will help you to calculate how much concrete you will need. Next set the job out on the ground. Use nails with pegs and string lines to ensure that things will finish as you intend them to.   All levels should be measured from a known point if possible. Don't forget that any surface adjoining a building must be at least 150mm below the damp-proof course and should be laid to slope away from the building so that water drains away. Levelling pegs, a spirit level on a piece of straight timber can be used over short distances, use a water level made from a clear plastic pipe filled with water. Provided the pipe is carefully filled and has no air locks, the water at each end of the pipe will be exactly level. Large areas of concrete should have a fall of about 1 in 40 so that water runs off adequately. Set the high side first, then the low side.   Preparation (Bases and Drives) All concrete needs to have a solid sub-base of adequate depth. Dig out the area to twice the required depth of concrete below the finished surface level. (For driveways or garage bases taking cars, the minimum thickness should be 100mm or 4"). Once dug, compact the soil in the base with a garden roller or Wacker plate, then place and compact a layer of crushed stone or hardcore, leaving sufficient space for the depth of concrete required.
Formwork
Set the formwork around the edge of the area and nail it solidly to firm pegs spaced at regular intervals along its length, ensuring that the pegs are on the outside of the boards.   Check that all levels and falls are correct, and that pegs do not project above the formwork. Measure the depth, width and length in metres and multiply these together to determine the volume of concrete in cubic metres that you need to order. I.e. 3m x 4m x .100 = 1.2 metres cubed or please visit our concrete calculator. If you prefer to work in yards and inches, measure the width and length in yards and multiply together to give you the area in square yards.
Alternativelty, if you need help in calculating the amount you need give Mixamate's helpful staff a ring and they will gladly work out how much concrete you need.   Ask us about our Mini Dumper service to aid replacement of your Concrete and Screed.

Additives

Additives

Admixtures are materials other than cement, aggregate and water that are added to concrete either before or during its mixing to alter its properties, such as improved retention of workability; higher early strengths; higher ultimate strengths; reduced shrinkage; improved durability of reinforced structural concrete; and enhanced quality of surface finishes. Some admixtures have been in use for a very long time, such as calcium chloride to provide a cold-weather setting concrete. Others are more recent and represent an area of expanding possibilities for increased performance.

The chemistry of concrete admixtures is a complex topic requiring in-depth knowledge and experience. A general understanding of the options available for concrete admixtures is necessary for acquiring the right product for the job, based on climatic conditions and job requirements. Based on their functions, admixtures can be classified into the following five major categories:

* Air-entraining admixtures
* Retarding admixtures
* Water reducing/plasticizing admixtures
* Superplasticizers

Among other important admixtures that do not fit into these categories are admixtures whose functions include bonding, shrinkage reduction and damp proofing. The following paragraphs provide details on the above-mentioned categories of concrete admixtures.
 

Air-entraining admixtures

Air-entraining agents entrain small air bubbles in the concrete. The major benefit of this is enhanced durability in freeze-thaw cycles, especially relevant in cold climates. While some strength loss typically accompanies increased air in concrete, it generally can be overcome by reducing the water/cement ratio via improved workability (due to the air-entraining agent itself) or through the use of other appropriate admixtures. The use of air-entraining agents also reduces bleeding and segregation of fresh concrete.


Retarding admixtures

Retarding admixtures (retarders) slow down the hydration of cement, lengthening set time. Retarders are beneficially used in concrete to offset the effect of high temperatures, which decrease setting times, or to avoid complications when unavoidable delays between mixing and placing occur. Because most retarders also act as water reducers, they are frequently called water-reducing retarders.
Water reducing/plasticizing admixtures

Water-reducing admixtures are groups of products that are added to concrete to achieve certain consistencies (slump) at lower water/cement ratios than that of control concrete. Water-reducing admixtures are used to improve the quality of concrete and to obtain specified strength at lower cement content. They also improve the properties of concrete containing marginal- or low-quality aggregates and help in placing concrete under difficult conditions. However, water-reducing admixtures can entrain air into the concrete mix via its effect on water's surface tension, thereby also, obtaining some of the benefits of air-entrainment.

Superplasticizers

Superplasticizers can be used in the same three ways as a conventional plasticizer:

* To impart extreme workability (beyond that obtainable with a conventional plasticizer)
* To permit a large water reduction to be made beyond the limits of normal plasticizing admixtures
* To achieve economic and environmental benefits (e.g. reduction of the cement content) whilst maintaining performance

The mode of action of superplasticizers is similar to conventional plasticizers; the admixture particles are adsorbed onto the cement particles, causing them to become mutually repulsive and thus having a dispersing effect.
 

The first generation of superplasticizers were commercially launched in the early 1960's and had an effective working life of less than one hour. Superplasticizers were first used in the United Kingdom in 1973. The original application of superplasticizers was to produce flowing concrete to be used in heavily reinforced structures and in placements where adequate consolidation by vibration cannot be readily achieved. However, they now have far wider applications including the production of high-strength concrete (compressive strengths greater than 100 MPa) at water/cement ratios ranging from 0.3 to 0.4.

Testimonials

Mr C Elms, Property Developer, 4th March 2010

A quick line following a productive day and satisfactory day on site.

I rang and spoke with Millie at 08.30 on Wednesday morning to be given all the answers to my questions and quotation for 6 cubic metres of C25 mix and the use of a dumper.

Millie allowed me to provisionally book an 11.00 till 13.00 slot the next day. So long as I rang back to confirm following building controls visit that morning.

(Compliments to a very informative website that allowed me to research your services, options to overcome difficult access and calculator to work out how many cubic metres was needed.)

I duly rang back by lunchtime and confirmed the job. Again Millie was helpful, pleasant and efficient in confirming the arrangements and credit card payment.

My driver was David who phoned ahead of his arrival time to keep me informed of what time he would be at the site. David was understanding of my request on how to keep the highway clear and still passable by the bus route. Despite a badly running dumper (it cut out on David after every tip just after he put into reverse) the foundations were filled efficiently and required very little work from myself.

Both Millie and David were both professional in their roles and a credit to your company. I would not hesitate in recommending Mixamate to any other developer or friend.
Mr P North, Storrington, 22nd January 2010

I was most impressed when you delivered concrete for the base of a large Summerhouse in my back garden. On that occasion in February 2006 your mini-dumper was brilliant! A few photos are attached.
Mark, John Welsh Engineering, 22nd December 2009

Would you pass on my thanks to Chris and 'all the girls' for the cracking service they have given to Welsh Engineering but MORE IMPORTANTLY the service/help you/they have given to me personally.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH
Adrian Neilson, 3rd November 2009

I thought I would write to express my total satisfaction with a delivery of 4 tons of MixaMate Screed on Sat 31/10/2009. Most importantly the quality of the screed was superb, clearly well mixed, concrete rich and totally even. Chris the driver was most supportive and unpressurising. Three friends barrowed 4 tons in 30 minutes from the start of the first mix. The retarder worked brilliantly and we completed the 32m floor some 6 hours later. I would use your service again without doubt and would assure other potential customers that yours is a first rate operation that supplies a very high quality product.
Dave Golding, 29th May 2009

Just a line to thank your company and especially the help received from your driver on Saturday 23 May. With his assistance the job was successfully completed. I will have no hesitation of recommending your company in the future. Thank you.
Mrs L Brown, 2008

I just wanted to let you know how impressed and happy I was with your company from the start to finish. My dealing with Millie on the phone was a pleasure. Even after the hiccup with the dreadful traffic, you still managed to deliver on the date requested. The whole experience made a heavy hard job a real breeze, something I won’t hesitate to use again in the future. I would definitely recommend your service to friends and associates!
Brian Towell, 2008

Just a quick email to thank you / Mixamate for an excellent job last Friday. While we didn’t succeed with the mini dumper, we managed to barrow the 3 and a bit cubic meters of concrete in an hour or so. Your driver (I think he was called Trevor) got a good mix going, and barrowed more than his share of concrete through to the garden. He also called us to a halt at just the right time, with no excess concrete to bag up at the end of the delivery! All done by 9.30am. We are now well on our way to getting the cabin erected, on a perfect concret base. If anyone asks, I’ll definitely pass on your details.
Peter Clark, Middlesex, 2008

I write to express my sincere thanks for the service provided by the Uxbridge depot of your company on 2nd November. I needed the material for a base for a gazebo. The driver arrived within the time frame predicted at the time of the order; I’m afraid I didn’t discover his name at the time, but I see from the invoice that he is ‘Ozzy’. Being aware that it was my responsibility to ‘deliver’ the concrete from the roadside to the site, I had enlisted the help of my wife, my neighbour’s wife and my daughter. The weight of wet concrete (1cubic meter) was something of a surprise to us and, without the advise and help of Ozzy, we would have struggled to achieve the result so expeditiously. In the event we achieved the firm level base required by the company who are providing and installing the gazebo. Obviously, I thanked Ozzy at the time, but I would like my appreciation to be placed on ‘official’ record. I will certainly recommend Mixamate to anyone I know who needs this product.
 

Can we help?
