Is there safe access for the truck to get into the jobsite?
The customer assumes all liability and charges for any damages and removal of the pump if it becomes stuck
Is there a flat area with stable ground to set the pump up on with enough space to accommodate the outriggers?
If setting up next to a footing or depression, know the 1 : 1 Rule. For every foot drop, set the pump outrigger back one foot (example: when setting up next to a 4’ deep footing, have the outrigger sitting no closer than 4’ from the footing)
The pump cannot setup outside of 3 degrees from level

What You Need to Know About Our Business
Operators need 10 hours off between shifts to drive a pump. Give us advanced notice when scheduling a pump during off hours
Operators cannot drive back in the yard if they have worked more than 16 hours (less for interstate). If you know a pour will be a long pour or is far from our yard, let us know so that we can make arrangements
The sooner you order a pump, the more likely we can accommodate sending a specific size pump or operator
What to Expect
Expect up to 1 yd of concrete left over in the pump.
We cannot washout into anything higher than 8 inches
It is the customer’s responsibility for removal of this concrete
Order one extra yard to accommodate for what will be lost in the pump
