1-Yard and 1.75-Yard Mixing Trailers
Most ready-mix suppliers charge an extra delivery fee for the small quantities needed to patch a sidewalk. The mid-size mixers carry 1 ¾ cubic yards to the site, while eliminating these high delivery fees for sidewalk repairs.
Once the sidewalk is opened up, the liability increases. Securing the site while the concrete delivery is scheduled becomes an “open-risk” that requires assets, equipment and planning for personnel.
Every “less than truckload” order is put at a lower priority by ready-mix truck providers. The unpredictable delivery schedule forces the crew to be less efficient as they wait at the job site for the truck to arrive.
The unseen, but long-term damage caused by rolling 50,000-pound trucks down neighborhood streets for small repairs must be considered. These streets were never engineered for the repeated and pounding abuse of a multi-wheeled concrete delivery truck.
The more sidewalks that you have, the more calls, requests and inspections are required. The added resources and frustrations are not usually accounted for, but should be.
