How much do I need?
Although our machines can supply exactly what your job requires we do need an idea of how much you are going to use. This ensures your delivery lorry has enough material on board to supply your needs.
What size are the mixers?
We have two sizes of machines supplying 6 cubic meters and 8 cubic meters.
They both measure 2.6m wide with the mirrors in, and 4m high
How long can I keep the mixer on site?
For deliveries of up to 3m3 we allow half an hour free of charge. For deliveries of over 3m3 we allow up to 45 minutes free of charge. If the allotted time is exceeded a charge of £100 + VAT is charged per hour, in 10 minute increments.
How do I pay for my concrete?
Our mixer operator will take a credit card, debit card, or cash payment after all your concrete has been delivered. That way you pay for exactly what you have. No overcharging.
How do I know you are supplying the correct grade and amount of concrete?
We have our own concrete tester who takes regular slump tests and on-site samples. These are then tested independently by Devon County Council Materials Laboratory for strength and density. Our machines are then calibrated regularly to ensure we deliver a consistent quality and the correct amount of concrete.
What is a volumetric mixer?
A volumetric mixer is a mobile batching plant. The raw materials are transported to site in separate compartments on the vehicle. When on site, the required mix design and slump are selected and the concrete production process starts. In minutes the fresh concrete can be discharged as a continuous flow or intermittent flow, and can be halted at any time. This gives the customer complete flexibility and control over the quantity received.
What are the benefits of a volumetric mixer rather than a drum mixer?
The volumetric will mix the exact amount you need whilst on site, this gives the following advantages:
- The mix is fresh and hasn’t been made back at a depot. This increases its working time on your site.
- You have the possibility of obtaining different strength mixes in the same visit.
- You only pay for what you need so there is no over or under ordering and paying extra charges for returned concrete.
Are there any hazards involved when handling concrete?
Yes. Wet concrete can cause severe burns and dermatitis. Avoid contact with the skin and eyes. Always wear appropriate protective clothing, gloves, goggles and footwear.
Google reviewJust had George the Irish man from Jet Set. He came exactly on time, helped us with our DIY foundations and was super efficient and friendly. What’s more, their prices are just for the amount used, which, for smaller quantities, is brilliant 1.3m³ @ P280…just perfect. Many thanks guys. Will be passing on your details
Great local company. Staff we really helpful with my enquiries. Great communication throughout and lovely friendly chap delivered to us . Perfect . Many thanks
Google reviewFantastic experience and on time today, 12:30 on the dot as requested, useful information and a fantastic delivery from the gentleman who was more than happy to help with anything he Could! Really happy with jet set concrete
Google reviewStaff Very friendly and reliable all round good service will always recommend jet set concrete
Google reviewBest and most cost effective way to do the foundations for your extension. Had them round to do mine and they only charge for what you use, so even if you’re not sure how much you need, doesn’t matter. Helpful guys, turned on time and gave a hand getting things ready, plus advised best way to do things. Great for me as its my first extension. Would definitely recommend as you cant buy the materials yourself for the price they charge, plus you don’t break your back mixing it all!
Google reviewGreat Service – Having done some research, Jet Set was definitely the cheapest way for me to buy 2m3 for my garage floor. Service was amazing the driver arrived on time, parked in a good spot to save barrowing the mix, and then actually gave me a hand to get it screeded so that he didn’t leave me with too much or too little concrete. GREAT JOB JET SET – thank you – HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Brilliant. Saves money, time, and hard work. Will definitely use again.I had a delivery to my address yesterday afternoon and wanted to drop an email to express my gratitude for such a fantastic service. Everyone I spoke to were incredibly helpful, friendly and professional.The driver especially is a true asset to your company. He went above and beyond in my opinion, and did so in good spirits and a very positive attitude, he was a pleasure to deal with.If you could give him a thank you for his help, it would be greatly appreciated.
