Concrete Taxi is a niche supplier of small volumes of concrete to the residential and commercial markets in Brisbane, Sydney, Perth and Townsville. We supply to tradesmen, civil contractors, local councils and the domestic market.
Our specialty is small volume up to 2 cubic metres and the ability to manufacture concrete on-site gives us a competitive edge. We provide a delivery service that operates 24 hours / 7 days a week and we have the ability to reach some of the most difficult or restricted work areas.
Coloured concrete requires the addition of oxides pre mixing. Selection of colour is at your discretion however Concrete Taxi needs to advise that there is no guarantee of colour consistency. All coloured concrete orders need to be ordered by arrangement as colour is added at the screeding stage.
All concrete orders require 24 hours notice with the exception of night and weekend order deliveries. For night or weekend orders we require placement of the order 1 week prior to allow for scheduling. Orders can be confirmed by contacting our office on 1300 880 955, a specific delivery time will be advised. If for any reason the truck operator is running ahead of schedule or behind schedule you will receive a phone call on the day to allow for on-site co-ordination. In some instances we can accommodate “on the spot orders”. If you have this requirement please contact the office for best advice.
Upon delivery the driver will assess the required delivery location and discuss with you the best method to discharge the concrete. Normal method of discharge for small amounts of concrete is via wheelbarrows. Concrete Taxi’s mixing process allows us to produce two wheelbarrow loads of concrete every 6 minutes, which allows you ample time to wheel and lay each load through the mixing cycle. Our standard production rate is .8cu.m/hour. Any on-site delays may incur and additional charge.
With Concrete Taxi you only pay for what you use. Our pricing structure is available for 24/7 delivery for jobs between .1 and 2 cu.m. To provide a final price we will need to take into account the delivery zone and time of delivery.
Our “pay for what you use” epithet is balanced by the need for on-site productivity. Concrete Taxi charges for waiting time or out of hour’s delivery can be viewed in our pricing structure document. If you require a copy of this please contact the office and we will arrange to email or fax a copy to you.
The concrete mix you choose will depend on the type of job you are doing. Different applications will require individual mix specifications. When you provide information on the job application we can then determine the mix requirements and advise. If you are not sure please contact us to discuss and we will advise you on the best option to meet your needs.
Pre Delivery Preparation
Concrete bases, floors and drives: You will need to dig out the area to twice the required depth of concrete (a minimum of 10mm or 4 inches is advisable). This means you will need to dig the area out to 200mm or 8 inches depth and the soil will need to be compacted.
If you are working with clay-based soil it is recommended that you lay a sub-base layer of compacted hardcore 100mm deep to give the concrete a solid base to prevent shrinking. A smooth work surface can be obtained by placing a thin layer of sand on top of the hardcore. This also helps to prevent variations in the depth.
A layer of damp proof membrane between the sub-base and concrete will assist in preventing your concrete from drying too quickly as well stopping problems with rising damp on the finished project.
