Concrete for Shed Bases
Pre-mixed concrete Cambridge
At Madmix we can supply a range of ready-mixed concrete solutions suitable for garden shed bases, no matter how big or small your project.
Whether you are using a local builder or completing the project yourself, we can advise on the best concrete mix to suit your garden building project, ensuring a long lasting, durable base for your shed, summerhouse, log cabin or gazebo. Most of our customers opt for Gen 1, a low-grade concrete which is suitable for small sheds. However, a bigger structure, such as a summerhouse, will need a stronger base.
Using a single batch of pre-mixed concrete prepared by Madmix at our Cambridge plant, rather than mixing concrete by hand or using a cement mixture, will ensure a consistent, high-quality base. Our professionally mixed concrete can be delivered in quantities of as little as 1 cubic metre, and if you order too much, we will take away any surplus, unlike some other companies we do not charge a disposal fee. This makes our concrete delivery a very cost-efficient solution, especially if you are slightly unsure of your requirements.
We operate a fleet of 5 X 6 metre concrete lorries, which are suited to slightly narrower sites, and 4 X 8 metre trucks, available for bigger jobs. Our standard ready-mix concrete deliveries are available five days a week, and we also offer some premium Saturday morning slots as well.
To calculate the amount of concrete you require for your domestic building project, use our handy concrete calculator, or call us a call on 01954 212212 and we will happily work out the amount you require.
Once you are ready to place you order, get in touch and we will recommend a range of solutions to provide the best possible concrete product for your needs. You can also reach us by following this link and by filling in the online form.
Why Choose Madmix Pre-mixed Concrete for Your Garden Project?
No Wastage – We will help calculate how much concrete you need and take away any surplus at no extra charge.
No Mess – Our pre-mixed concrete, which is made to an extremely high standard at our base on the outskirts of Cambridge, is ready to be used straight away, avoiding any potentially messy mixing or handling.
It Saves Effort – Hand-mixing your own concrete takes longer than using a pre-mixed variety – and creating your own batches that are of consistently high quality involves a lot more effort.
The Results are Better – Pre-mixed concrete produces a durable, long-lasting base. It can be poured straight out of the chute into the ground, a dumper or wheelbarrow or it can be connected to a pump and directed exactly where it needs to go – over a house, on the floor or through a window.
Our Excellent Delivery Service – Domestic concrete delivery from our Cambridgeshire base is available throughout the working week and includes early morning and some Saturday deliveries (at a premium).
Sometimes we can offer a same-day service or next day service, depending on the availability of our mixers. If people are flexible on the timing, we can usually offer a delivery slot at a maximum wait of one or two days later.
We prefer not to deliver in the dark for health and safety purposes and so in winter months we start on site no earlier than 7.30am. At the end of the day, if we are running late, and it is dark we will take your advice as to whether it is safe for us to deliver.
We give our customers 30 minutes free unloading time, and after that our charges are £2 a minute plus VAT. This helps you budget correctly on the total cost, also ensures our delivery times are scheduled accurately.
Other Unique Selling Points – At Madmix, we pride ourselves on our excellent customer service. Steve and Kay, who deal with all incoming enquiries are both highly experienced when it comes to knowing what the customer is likely to want. We will always try to be as proactive as possible and will notify you in advance where possible if any deliveries are running late. We also try to be flexible and will try to help if you have a problem.
We have been complimented on numerous occasions for the quality of the product and the professionalism of our team. For more details see our testimonials page
