How Do The Blocks Arrive at Your Location?
Two options are available to get your blocks to you. We offer delivery or you can pick them up yourself. For the first option, Concrete Block Supply will arrange for a flat-bed semi to deliver the blocks to your jobsite. At this point, you will need to have the capability to offload the blocks from the truck yourself. The equipment at your disposal will need to be able to lift 3600 lbs. for full sized blocks, 2400 lbs. for 4’ blocks, or 1800 lbs. 3’ sized blocks. The semi’s flat-bed deck height is 5’. The block height is 2’, so the equipment to unload the blocks must have the capability to remove the blocks from the trailer deck. Another consideration to think about is the size of the jobsite lot. It must be able to handle a 48’ to 53’ semi, allowing room for the truck to maneuver. Some other helpful information is that all of the blocks have a rebar loop handle. A chain can be attached easily to aid in their removal from the semi-bed.
The second option is for you to pick up the blocks yourself. A day and time will be arranged with a local plant for you to come and get the blocks. Upon your arrival, the blocks will be loaded for you. You are responsible for the materials necessary to secure your blocks to the trailer. We suggest chains or straps to keep your blocks secure for transport. At the arrival at your jobsite you, you are responsible for the removal of the blocks from the trailer. We would be happy to advise you regarding any information that you might need to make a decision on the purchase or the delivery of the concrete blocks to your jobsite.
