How Do You Get the Blocks?
There are two options to acquire the concrete blocks New Mexico. Concrete Block Supply offers jobsite delivery or plant pick up. The first option is that we schedule a flat bed semi to deliver the blocks to your job site. Once the truck arrives at your job site location you will need to have adequate equipment onsite to offload the blocks. Whatever equipment you have onsite at the time of delivery needs to be capable of offloading blocks with an individual weight of 3,600 lbs or 1,800 lbs if you are getting only half blocks. The standard deck height of a flat bed is 5’ and the blocks are 2’ in height, so the offload equipment you provide needs to be able to reach up high enough to pick the blocks up off of the trailer deck. The standard rebar loop handle is located in the top, center of each block so that you can easily attach a chain to lift them. No specific rigging equipment is required to move these blocks around. Also, please keep in mind your job site must have adequate space for a 48’-53’ semi truck to maneuver. Otherwise you will need to arrange for an accessible location close to your site to offload the blocks. You will then need to use smaller equipment to move the blocks to your job site. The second option is for you to pick up the concrete blocks for yourself at the plant. We will schedule a day and time for you to pick them up from your designated concrete blocks New Mexico location. Once you get to the block plant, the concrete blocks will be loaded on to your trailer for you by one the yard guys. Remember to bring straps, chains , or something to secure the bin blocks to your trailer. Please contact us with any questions regarding either job site delivery or plant pick up.
