Concrete is available 6 days a week!

Our high-tech concrete blending system is capable of producing up to 15 yards of ready-mixed concrete per hour. Using your tow vehicle, take one of our tandem-axle carts and from to 1 yard up to about 20 miles, back up to your form, and using the built-in hydraulic jack, place concrete right where you need it. No more back-breaking bags of sack concrete! Most people don't realize that mixing just one yard of concrete by hand in a wheelbarrow or a small mixer requires OVER 40 bags of sack concrete! Folks, life is too short for that kind of labor, when you can have the finished product for less money than the cost of the sack concrete.

We also have tandem-axle carts with built-in agitators, up to 1 yard capacity, available for those times when you need a little more help with your project.  This self-contained trailer has a small Honda engine to drive the on-board hydraulics that keep the concrete agitated during travel. At the jobsite, back the trailer to the form, pull a lever to stop the agitator, pull another lever to power-tilt the trailer box. After the box is fully raised, restart the agitator and you have dumped most of the mix by motor! This is a great labor-saver even on short hauls, and is especially worth considering if you are planning to wheelbarrow the concrete from the trailer to your form.

Our concrete is made with premium-quality Portland type II cement and a premixed sand and 5/8" pea gravel aggregate. The blending system injects a chemical compound into the mixing chamber that retards setup for about 2 hours. This chemical compound also includes an air-entraining agent that traps air bubbles in the mix, increasing travel time by helping to slow the natural settling of the rock during the towing process. The prices shown are for a 5-bag mix, which will produce a concrete which if properly placed and finished, is more than adequate for patios, sidewalks, etc. We can easily increase the cement content at an additional cost; some customers request 5- or 6-bag mix for additional strength or wet area applications.

We recommend at least a 3/4 -ton pickup for towing; a receiver hitch rated for 6000 pounds with a 2" ball is excellent, as a trailer with a full load (1 yard) weighs over two tons. Maximum towing speed is 35 mph due to the weight involved. You should have all site preparation done before coming to get concrete - it is best to dump the concrete immediately on arrival at the jobsite, especially in hot weather.

Our mixing hours, 7:30am to 4:30pm, are shorter than regular business hours due to startup and cleanup requirements of the blending system. We do not reserve trailers or accept advance payments for concrete - just call when you are ready to pour; we will hold an available trailer for up to 30 minutes to allow you to come start your pour.  Due to high volume, we require trailers to be returned within three hours per batch. If you take concrete within 3 hours of closing, it may be acceptable to return trailer the next business morning - check with our staff.

Regular trailers are furnished at no charge with the sale of concrete. Trailer must be returned within 3 hours of departure per batch hauled, or late charge of $15 per hour will apply.

Agitating trailers rent for $65 per mixing day, and are due back at end of business day rented.

All trailers are for hauling concrete purchased at Tomball Rental Center only; no other use is authorized. A $100 cleanup deposit is required on each trailer rented regardless of type; deposit will be refunded if trailer is returned on time and has been rinsed inside and out.

Consider using U-CART Concrete for your next concrete job, if:

  1. you need more than a few bags of sack concrete

  2. you need less than an eight or nine yard truckload

  3. you don't have enough help to handle eight or nine yards at once

  4. you have a problem getting a truck into your jobsite

We've sold thousands of yards since 1979, one yard at a time. We KNOW this is a good product. Try it!

NOTE: The final strength of this product is dependent on several factors including cement content, type of reinforcement used (wire mesh, rebar), quality of site preparation (soil compaction, wetness, etc.), and skill in placing and finishing the concrete. In some cases this product is simply not suitable due to the fact that a large aggregate (rock) is not used in mixing. Because of the many variables that come into play, some of them outside our control, Tomball Rental Center cannot guarantee the suitability of this product to a particular task, and will not be liable for consequential damages or lost labor or materials.

For a rough estimate of concrete needed for a given job at 4 inches thick, calculate the square footage - length x width in feet - and divide the result by 81 to get the amount in cubic yards. For example: slab 15' by 20' = 300 square feet/81 = 3.71 yards. We would then recommend 'rounding up' to the next quarter-yard increment: in this case,  3 yards.  For a free quantity and price quote, call us with your exact job dimensions.
