Barrowing

Barrowing still accounts for a large quantity of our deliveries. In fact, barrowing is so synonymous with mix on site concrete delivery that our service is still referred to as Barrow Mix in many areas around the UK.

We carry 3 barrows on the truck which are free for Mixamate customers 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.

Mixamate does not carry out the barrowing on behalf of our customers, but we do have a more speedy on-board mini dumper service, which is carried out directly by our driver. Please see the section on the mini dumpers if you would like to use this option.
