Concrete Pump Hire Nottingham, Derby
Concrete Pumping + Screed Pumping
Pumping Concrete to your desired area can have multiple benefits over receiving a ready mixed concrete load dumped outside the front of a job, or mixed on-site and wheelbarrowed to the intended area of use.
You can hire our pumping services and we supply the concrete or screed at very competitive prices. Or you can order you own concrete and we will do the pumping for you.
We cover quite a wide radius of around 70 miles from Junction 28-29 of the M1 Motorway.

Pumping Concrete and the Benefits
Faster product delivery to your chosen area
Better for reaching difficult areas, and access restrictions
Good if a mixer cannot get close to tip the concrete load where needed
Delivering concrete through tight spaces, and in between narrow gaps between houses.
Could be that the concrete needs pouring inside building premises or laying at height
The ground is uneven or unsuitable for manual wheelbarrow runs
Less mess and can be cleaned quicker and easier
Saves on standing charges
Less Shovelling and backache
Most concrete and screeds can be pumped (If you are not sure please ask first)
What kind of people use our pumping services?
Pumping liquid Concrete
We offer a local pumped concrete service that is a perfect way to deliver your chosen liquid concrete mixture to exactly the area that you want the product, without the mess, extra labour and standing charges. Our seamless process of execution gives our customers exactly the amounts of concrete they want without all the hassle of mixing and moving the products manually.
Our pumping system allows us to deliver your chosen material to upstairs or raised areas, inside buildings, with minimal fuss, cleanly and efficiently. If you had to shift the concrete by wheelbarrows, this would be a more labour intensive procedure and especially taxing over rough uneven terrain.
Simply put our methods can deliver concrete faster and with pinpoint accuracy, thus saving you money on labour costs.
How far and how high can you pump the material?
Around 100 metres plus horizontally
About 20 metres vertically
What is your maximum pump rate?
We can pump around 20m3 per hour
Concrete pumps help as they can dispense the intended material faster than the common wheelbarrow method. The steady concrete flow provided by the pump machines guarantees a better-finished product due to minimum delays. Another great advantage is they never stop for tea breaks, lunch or moan about the weather conditions. They are ready 24/7 for work!.
Concrete and Estimating Volume
Concrete and screed volume estimating can be a problem and tricky business. Often frustrating, which can work out expensive if your calculations are out and you order too much. This can work the other way too if you calculate under the amount that you need, as time will become the factor, waiting around for a top-up batch to finish your job.
Answer to this problem is Volumetric Trucks
If a customer uses our company to supply their concrete either for pumping or any other use, you can rest assured that you will only pay for the material that you need. The trucks we use, mix on-site the exact amount needed for the job and to your specific specifications. You will not run short or overpay. This also has another great advantage being that we can slightly change the mix as we go, just in case the weather conditions change, as concrete and screed can be affected by sudden climate shifts.
We have you covered for any eventuality, in our business you are only as good as the last job, that’s why we like to get it right!!!
IMPORTANT INFORMATION - Please Read
What we need from your prior to the start of the Job
Unless we are supplying the concrete within your order
Please order and pay for your own concrete, if a pumping service is all that you ordered.
If you are ordering your own concrete, make sure it's a "Pump Mix"
If you are supplying the concrete, we need a "name" and a "Telephone number" of your chosen supplier?
Guarantee us that sufficient space will be provided so we can park our pumping equipment.
Supply us with X1 bag of standard cement to prime our pump pipes prior to the work starting.
Make sure that there is a place to dispose of any waste materials, including surplus concrete and any excess waste from cleaning the pumping machine.
Make allowances to pay for our services before we leave the intended site.
Thank You for your cooperation in these matters.
Please be sure to move any vehicles away from the area where we have to site our pumping equipment and the concrete delivery truck. Always make a point to keep clear any routes that might obstruct our walkthrough to the intended concrete area, and lay our delivery pipes.
Sometimes rain cannot be foreseen and helped, during the project or before. It is therefore wise to cover the area where possible to prevent water ingress and limit the damage. Excess water can affect the concrete mix by diluting the material and making it weaker than normal.

Concrete Pumping And How It All Works
Concrete pumping is one of the most useful tools in construction. It allows materials to be transported rapidly and efficiently over a variety of distances, making it an invaluable part of any project. But what exactly is concrete pumping? How does it work? And how can you benefit from its use? In this article, we’ll dive into all the details about concrete pumping and the advantages it provides for construction projects.
At its core, concrete pumping is a process of transferring wet concrete from one place to another using pressure generated by powerful pumps. The liquid is sent through hoses that can stretch up to hundreds of feet in length, allowing it to reach areas where regular wheelbarrows or other transportation methods would be impractical or impossible. This makes it ideal for use in tight spaces or locations with difficult access, such as basements and multi-story buildings.
The process itself begins by prepping the areas where the concrete will be pumped. This involves marking off the path of the hose so that no one gets caught in it during pumping operations, as well as clearing any obstructions to ensure a smooth flow of the liquid. Additionally, it’s important to ensure that the area has been adequately sealed so that there are no leaks when pressure is applied.
Once everything is ready, the pump operator will then proceed to connect the hose to a powerful concrete pump. This pump is connected directly to a power source and works by applying pressure to the wet concrete, forcing it through the hose and into its desired destination. The pressure can be adjusted depending on the length of the hose and the amount of concrete that needs to be transported.
Concrete pumping is a powerful tool in any construction project as it allows for increased efficiency and reduced labor costs. By being able to move large amounts of material with minimal effort, projects can be completed more quickly and with fewer personnel. Additionally, the process is relatively safe as long as proper safety protocols are followed.
