Price per cubic yard for concrete?


I'm thinking of adding on to the garage, and I am trying to get an idea of what its going to cost me to get a pump truck out to pour the slab. It is going to be approximately 32 cubic yards. Anybody in the know on concrete prices now?

I thought a pump truck was $800-1000 per day.

Thats either a huge garage or you made a measurement mistake.

32 yards is a lot.

They have a U cart deal in Gulfport. A DIY tow beind trailer with up to 1 1/2 yrds for $148

Wouldn't that be about 2000 square feet worth?

That's a pretty big addition. Not saying you're wrong, but might want to check your math. That's over 3 trucks worth. Depending on strength its going to be around 100 a yard. Last quote was 96 plus tax.

30x70, 5" thick will get you to 32...

Thats about 2500 square feet of 4 inch thick concrete, which is badass if thats an "addition" to your garage.

It's about $100 per yard depending on delivery options, etc.

I just added to our back patio. Dug a hole 125sq ft and had 2 yds of concrete dumped. Came from ascension ready mix and cost was $110 yd plus fuel surcharge and delivery fee. Came out to be $320.

And yes if youre just adding to existing slab that is a lot unless it is another two car garage.

A 34M (meter) pump truck that comes with a 112' boom is currently running $130/ hour and also has a yardage rate of $2.75/ cubic yard with a 4 hour minimum. This is in the BR/ NOLA/ Northshore area of the country.

You may need to check your calculations on the garage as well.
