    Hi all -

    I want to get some concrete poured for my patio but plan to hire a grinder and polish it myself. I'm struggling though to find who will pour it for me - if I call a concrete company they say they only deliver, and the only trades i can find relating to concrete all only do patterned concrete and won't just lay the concrete for me. Is there a phrase or type of company I should be looking for?

    Thanks

    The companies who arrive with a truck loaded with water sand and cement, plus a mixer, to mix at your door, will barrow it, lay and level it for you. Providing you have the shuttering in place ready. They are not expensive and specialise in the smaller deliveries of concrete.
