Adrian Neilson, Excellence By Design, 28 Sept 2017

"I had a delivery on Saturday 23rd September by your driver, Colin. He arrived early, but then was totally ok about not starting until the booked time - he had a flask of coffee and a newspaper! Colin was very pleasant, listened to requests regarding the mix and did not push on anything. Whilst I did not interact with him very much as I was busy levelling, friends working with me commented on his helpfulness. Colin was a credit to your company, and I would use Mixamate if I needed another delivery -- Thank you for your service."

Chris Clements, Scout Leader for the 10th Fareham Scout Group 30 May 2017

“On behalf of the 10th Fareham Scout Group we have to say a huge thank-you to Mixamate, who were brilliant to donate this concrete and deliver it to us. We had a successful morning constructing out new fire pits, which will allow the group to practice some exciting survival skills in a secure area. Everyone both Scouts and adults alike were also very impressed with the Mixamate truck. We were so happy with this we posted It on our Facebook page, and it was great to see all the leaders and parents who came and pitched in on the day to help – a real team effort and a really kind gesture from the guy’s at Mixamate to help us out in this way.”

George, My Construction, 2nd May 2017

"Particularly when it comes to the smaller jobs, I prefer to use Mixamate due to the ease and convenience of the concrete pump and the mixing on site. Also it works out cheaper when you only pay for what you use (on the smaller jobs). As far as I know, Mixamate is the only company that will send the cube tester out free of charge."

Ricky Shields, Owner, Ricky Shields Pavement Lights, 5th October 2016

"Pavement lights are the things you walk over without giving it a second thought. By their nature they are used in tight inner city spaces, and for that we required the Mixamate mix on site service. There's no waste, we can dictate exactly how much we need what consistency of mix we require - including a C40, which is what we need for this sort of job. It's just a much much easier system to use and the service is always friendly. And having worked with him for so long Chris, the Mixamate Managing Director, is always on hand to help us out should we ever need him."

Carolis Senkus, Site Manager, Knowles, 27th November 2015

"We are currently doing a big job at Rutland House Knightsbridge and using Mixamate to provide 500 cubic metres altogether on the same site. The on-board concrete pump is a particularly useful feature – it’s very good and you can control the speed of the pumping, which is very useful for us given that we are doing underpinning with plywood timbres and they can easily break with the wrong pressure. The driver is very helpful and the flexibility Mixamate gives us in terms of when we can receive the concrete and plan other site activity around that is hugely valuable."

Laurence Nagel, Nagel Services, 23rd June 2014  

“The site was a logistical nightmare with no access from any side of the plot,” said Laurence Nagel, Managing Director of Nagel Services. “However, because the Mixamate Concrete Pumping lorry contains an on-board concrete pump with a 50 metre pumping hose we were able to have the concrete pumped in directly through a street-facing building at the front of the site.”

“It’s clean, it’s easy, and there is no need to hire additional workers for barrowing” said Mr. Nagel. “I would recommend it every time.”

Nick Jones, PB Edwards, Thursday 1st August 2013

“I am currently working on a job in Belgravia, which sees us regularly using the Screed Pumping truck. When we first used the truck, Mixamate were brilliant and gave us all the relevant information straight away. They gave us the health and safety instructions, the structural things we needed to be aware of and the different weights we could load etc. It was very quick and professional. 

The reason this particular project has benefitted so much from using Mixamate’s Screed Pumping truck is that there isn’t that much space to manoeuvre around the site! The Screed Pumping truck arrives with the sand and cement separately and the mixing begins as soon as it arrives on site, meaning we can get started quicker. Now we can get 40 tonnes used in a day, making our turn over and productivity much more efficient. 

The company has used Mixamate before, but this is my first experience working with them. They have been fantastic and I would definitely use them again, and thoroughly recommend them!”

 Sean Casey, TerraTherma Ltd., Thursday 27th June 2013

"Your driver Terry is an absolute credit to you and your company! From the moment he arrived he demonstrated a positive – can do attitude. Originally the route leading into the pour site was a bit too narrow so he had to re-route around the block, this wasn’t a problem (Smiles!). The mix site itself wasn’t the greatest, parked up directly outside Amnesty International’s office on double yellow lines and partially restricting traffic flow (only lorries and dust carts couldn’t pass – cars and vans were ok) but it didn’t phase Terry at all!
 
The screed itself was going in rather thicker than expected due to a last minute change by the builder but after only the first two to three loads Terry had the mix ratio perfect and the screeders were extremely happy (Which for screeders is very unusual!). Unfortunately due to the increase in depth we were about 1 ½ tonnes short (after having 18tonne from you machine which was great as you’d only allowed for 16 ton!) this wasn’t a problem as I’d taken the liberty of taking my trailer to site just in case so I could pop to Travis and get a couple of bulk bags of sand and cement to finish, Terry was genuinely gutted not to have been able to provide the full required amount!!
 
In summary the guys an absolute legend, friendly, professional and conscientious! We will definitely be using you guys again, top service! Well done Chris!"
 

Charles Handscomb, Morgan Sindall plc., 12th June 2013

"Concreting at Harpenden station on Sunday night went very well indeed.  The chap driving the wagon was very supportive and it seems that you guys have a very good system.  It made a delightful change from the usual grumpy spinner drivers we’re used to, wanting to dump their loads in about 5 minutes to return to their depot.  Being able to take the concrete at our own pace helped tremendously and was far safer and less stressful than all other concrete works I’ve been involved with.  We’ll definitely be looking to use Mixamate again on future works and can’t thank you enough for your help."

Michael Tighe, Tighe Formwork Ltd., 4th September 2012.

"Mixamate has always provided us with outstanding service with good time keeping, friendly staff and good rates and I will always use your business in the future."

Anthony Martin, Director, AM Construction Southern Ltd., 12th March 2012.

“We use Mixamate regularly and our on-going work with the University of Sussex is no exception. Mixamate provide a reliable, efficient service and can guarantee the exact strength of materials we request. That is why we tend to stick with Mixamate even though other companies do provide mix on site services – the efficiency of their service cannot be beaten. I have recommended Mixamate many times in the past and will continue to do so in the future – it’s an excellent service.”

Keith Tracey, Abacus Flooring, 7th December 2011

We had an awkward job in the City of London where we needed to get 20 tons of screed in during a very short window. We searched the Internet, found Mixamate, and discovered they can provide a lorry and mix the exact quantities on-site with no waste. They were also able to administer it via pump, which would have been quite an awkward job with quite a lot of labour otherwise. It seems to be a fantastic set-up.

 

Chris Carey, Canham Contractors, 10th Aug 2011

I have used Mixamate before and would definitely recommend them to anybody looking for mix on site concrete. Their service is friendly, efficient, and involves no mess, and their drivers are always helpful and accommodating. Mixamate are able to provide small quantities unlike ready mix providers, which is a massive benefit to us especially when dealing with trickier jobs where concrete can set before you have had a chance to level it properly. Their vehicles also provide a detailed computerised breakdown of every single mix so you can be sure of the quality of the mix that is delivered.

Seamus Kenny, Cuttle Construction, 30th March, 2011

Simon Gardner, Steel Build Masters, 11th March, 2011

Fast, efficient service with friendly and helpful drivers – that sums up the service. This was the first time we have used Mixamate but have another big job coming up soon in a similar area, and will definitely be giving you guys a call again when that one comes around!

Ian, Ash & Co, Jan 10th 2011

"I have been using Mixamate for over 10 years and only use them because they are extremely friendly and accommodating and I have always found their service to be reliable. I already recommend Mixamate to others I know in the industry and will be calling upon them again as soon as I require mix-on-site concrete again."

Michael, Kenwood, 14th Dec 2010

“Great service guys! The drivers are always friendly and helpful and what I really like about Mixamate is that we only pay for what we use. Mixamate provide a brilliant and reliable service and consequently I have never needed to use another company – happy new year and thanks for a great service!”

Mr C Elms, Property Developer, 4th March 2010

"A quick line following a productive day and satisfactory day on site."

"I rang and spoke with Millie at 08.30 on Wednesday morning to be given all the answers to my questions and quotation for 6 cubic metres of C25 mix and the use of a dumper."

"Millie allowed me to provisionally book an 11.00 till 13.00 slot the next day. So long as I rang back to confirm following building controls visit that morning."

("Compliments to a very informative website that allowed me to research your services, options to overcome difficult access and calculator to work out how many cubic metres was needed.")

"I duly rang back by lunchtime and confirmed the job. Again Millie was helpful, pleasant and efficient in confirming the arrangements and credit card payment."

"My driver was David who phoned ahead of his arrival time to keep me informed of what time he would be at the site. David was understanding of my request on how to keep the highway clear and still passable by the bus route. Despite a badly running dumper (it cut out on David after every tip just after he put into reverse) the foundations were filled efficiently and required very little work from myself."

"Both Millie and David were both professional in their roles and a credit to your company. I would not hesitate in recommending Mixamate to any other developer or friend."

Mr P North, Storrington, 22nd January 2010

"I was most impressed when you delivered concrete for the base of a large Summerhouse in my back garden. On that occasion in February 2006 your mini-dumper was brilliant! A few photos are attached."

Mark, John Welsh Engineering, 22nd December 2009

"Would you pass on my thanks to Chris and 'all the girls' for the cracking service they have given to Welsh Engineering but

MORE IMPORTANTLY

the service/help you/they have given to me personally."

Adrian Neilson, 3rd November 2009

"I thought I would write to express my total satisfaction with a delivery of 4 tons of MixaMate Screed on Sat 31/10/2009. Most importantly the quality of the screed was superb, clearly well mixed, concrete rich and totally even. Chris the driver was most supportive and unpressurising. Three friends barrowed 4 tons in 30 minutes from the start of the first mix. The retarder worked brilliantly and we completed the 32m floor some 6 hours later. I would use your service again without doubt and would assure other potential customers that yours is a first rate operation that supplies a very high quality product."

Mrs L Brown, 2008

"I just wanted to let you know how impressed and happy I was with your company from the start to finish. My dealing with Millie on the phone was a pleasure. Even after the hiccup with the dreadful traffic, you still managed to deliver on the date requested. The whole experience made a heavy hard job a real breeze, something I won’t hesitate to use again in the future. I would definitely recommend your service to friends and associates!"

Brian Towell, 2008

"Just a quick email to thank you / Mixamate for an excellent job last Friday. While we didn’t succeed with the mini dumper, we managed to barrow the 3 and a bit cubic meters of concrete in an hour or so. Your driver (I think he was called Trevor) got a good mix going, and barrowed more than his share of concrete through to the garden. He also called us to a halt at just the right time, with no excess concrete to bag up at the end of the delivery! All done by 9.30am. We are now well on our way to getting the cabin erected, on a perfect concret base. If anyone asks, I’ll definitely pass on your details."

Peter Clark, Middlesex, 2008

"I write to express my sincere thanks for the service provided by the Uxbridge depot of your company on 2nd November. I needed the material for a base for a gazebo.  The driver arrived within the time frame predicted at the time of the order; I’m afraid I didn’t discover his name at the time, but I see from the invoice that he is ‘Ozzy’. Being aware that it was my responsibility to ‘deliver’ the concrete from the roadside to the site, I had enlisted the help of my wife, my neighbour’s wife and my daughter.  The weight of wet concrete (1cubic meter) was something of a surprise to us and, without the advise and help of Ozzy, we would have struggled to achieve the result so expeditiously. In the event we achieved the firm level base required by the company who are providing and installing the gazebo. Obviously, I thanked Ozzy at the time, but I would like my appreciation to be placed on ‘official’ record. I will certainly recommend Mixamate to anyone I know who needs this product."
