Short Load vs. Ready-Mix Concrete Delivery

Without concrete, building garden paths and sturdy home additions would be impossible. 

Although concrete is a crucial part of building plans, it’s also one of the most challenging. A concrete pour sets tone for your entire home improvement project. Done incorrectly, a concrete pour can create a string of additional problems in the future.  

Whether you’re a homeowner or contractor, picking the right concrete delivery is crucial – for your project and budget. 

The two most common types of concrete deliveries are short load and ready-mix.

  • Short load concrete is commonly used by homeowners and small residential contractors for small to moderate sized projects where the concrete is mixed on-site.
  • Ready-mix concrete is often used by commercial contractors for large-scale projects where the concrete is mixed at a mixing plant.

Let’s take a look at the differences between short load and ready-mix concrete delivery below.
