The Cost of Bulk Concrete calculator computes the price of bulk concrete including delivery based on mileage and on-site pumping cost.
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose your units and enter the following:
Bulk Concrete Cost (BCC): The calculator returns the total price of delivered bulk concrete in U.S. dollars.
The Bulk Concrete Cost is a price that can be quoted to the consumer. It is assumed that all other taxes and fees are either included in the unit prices or added to the result of this equation. The price units for this calculator are in United States Dollars (USD). However, the calculator can automatically convert into numerous other currencies. NOTE: the unit volume is a cubic yard (CY).
The formula for Bulk Concrete Delivered Cost is:
BCC = (price+pump)*vol + mileage*dist
Most people often forget Concrete Pumping Costs. One should remember to allow $/CY for pumping costs as the safest way to cover yourself. Typically anywhere from $13-$16 per CY will get your concrete pumped into your formwork. So you might include that as an option in-case someone needs that as it will add up in a hurry if you miss it. And that allowance will cover the cost of the pump truck into the site and back to their yard.
Good Cost for pumping Concrete: $13-16/CY
