What is pay for what you use concrete?


Pay for what you use concrete – or on-demand ready-mix – is the quick, simple and cost-effective way to get all the poured concrete you need for any job, big or small.

As its name suggests, pay for what you use concrete is where you only pay for the amount of concrete you actually need.

Imagine you have a large rectangle that needs filling with concrete. You might know the rough area but working out the exact volume and the precise amount of ready mix concrete you need from a Manchester supplier can be difficult.

Some suppliers might ask you to guess the size and pay for a fixed amount of concrete. You get a delivery of 20 cubic metres, and that’s that. If you only use 18 cubic metres, you’ve wasted money on the 2 cubic metres you have left over.

But that’s not the case with “pay for what you use”.

How does it work?

Pay for what you use concrete works by using state-of-the-art volumetric mixers, like those we have at Goodmix.

You tell us roughly how much concrete you’ll need, based on the project, and we’ll bring our mixing trucks directly to your location, pouring concrete directly to where you need it (or via our barrow service).

Our mixing trucks precisely measure how much concrete you use.

Take that large rectangle again. Our trucks keep dispensing concrete until those 18 cubic metres are filled, and then we stop.

So you only pay for 18 cubic metres. Exactly what you needed. Simple and cost effective.

Why choose a pay as you go option?

As we said, it’s the simple and cost-effective way to get all the ready mix concrete you need – whether you need just a couple of wheelbarrows or 6 mixer trucks full.

The most important thing to remember is that you won’t be wasting any concrete. There’s no left over concrete to deal with or dispose of. And no money spent on concrete that goes unused.

No excess concrete. No wasted money.
