The City of Portland
Portland, Oregon can be found in the Pacific Northwest part of the U.S, 110 miles away from the Pacific Ocean. It is the largest city within the state. It can be found at the confluence of two rivers, the Columbia and Willamette and between two mountain ranges, the Cascade Range and the lower Cascade Range. The cityscape is significantly marked by its many bridges, causing Portland to be nicknamed “Bridgetown” at one point. Winters here are quite cool and rainy and summers are relatively mild. Some tourist attractions in Portland include: Washington Park, Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area, Pittock Mansion, International Rose Test Garden, and Forest Park.

We provide bin blocks in Portland, OR, but perhaps you know these blocks by another name. Concrete blocks can have all sorts of alternative names, which can potentially make concrete barrier blocks in Portland, OR referencing a little confusing. However, we created a list of concrete block names that we tend to use more within our business. So, please feel free to familiarize yourself with the names below: stackable concrete blocks, storage wall blocks, leftover concrete blocks, gravity wall blocks, large concrete retaining wall blocks, interlocking v-blocks, barrier blocks, mafia blocks, bin blocks, ecology blocks, jumbo blocks, lego blocks, soldier blocks, and waste blocks. If you are more accustomed to using some other block names, please let us know and we can add those names to our list as well!
We provide concrete barrier blocks in Portland, OR. There are two different types of concrete barrier blocks that we provide in Portland: v-wedge and lego. Let’s talk about the v-wedge blocks first. V-wedge blocks have four different v-wedges that enable these blocks to smoothly interlock together. There is one version of the wedge that protrudes out on the top and side of the block and then a reverse, inverted version of the wedge on the bottom and opposite side. This block comes in two different sizes: a 6’ x 2’ x 2’ block that weighs 3,600lbs and a 3’ x 2’ x 2’ block that weighs 1,800lbs. As for transportation of these blocks, each trailer can hold thirteen of the 6’ blocks or twenty-six of the 3’ blocks. Next up, let’s talk about the lego blocks. These blocks are similar to v-wedge blocks, but they use a different method of interlocking. Instead of wedges, each block has two, cylinder shaped protrusions on the top of the block and two holes in the bottom of the same shape. These cylinders and holes enable these blocks to interlock together, just as the v-wedge does with their wedges. This block also comes in two sizes: a 5’ x 2.5’ x 2.5’ block that weighs 4,700lbs and a 2.5’ x 2.5’ x 2.5’ block that weighs 2,350lbs. As for transportation, each trailer can hold five of the 5’ blocks or ten of the 2.5’ blocks.
In addition, both the lego and v-wedge blocks come equipped with a rebar handle loop on the top of them. This loop enables you to move these blocks around without the use of special rigging equipment. These blocks can be used for a number of projects, both large and small scale. If you have any questions or would like to request more information on these blocks, please give us a call!
So, let’s answer the question of what our blocks can be used for. Our concrete barrier blocks in Portland, OR have been utilized by people all over the country for a variety of projects. Some of the more basic projects in which these blocks come in handy, include: general weight, storage bins, parking lot management, traffic control, fuel/propane tank protection, anchor weights for large tents, concrete retaining walls, road district material storage, property separation, and utilities security. If you have any ideas or questions regarding the uses of concrete blocks, please reach out to us! We’d love to chat with you.
After you purchase your blocks, how exactly do you receive them? Well, we will discuss the answer to that in the following section. We offer both delivery and pickup as block transportation options. We will walk you through both of these processes down below. First, let’s talk about delivery. In order for delivery to go safely and smoothly, we ask that you please take note of the few requirements that must be met. The first one being, you must have the proper block offloading equipment in order to unlock the blocks once they arrive. This equipment must be able to withstand carrying weights ranging from 4,700-1,800lbs, depending on the sizes of blocks being delivered. It must also be able to reach a height of 7’+. This is because, in height, the trailer is about 5’ and each block is about 2’. Lastly, in order for the delivery semi to safely enter and exit the drop off zone, there must be a space of 47’-53’ available. If this much space is not available, we can discuss dropping the blocks off at another, nearby location and proceed to use smaller machinery to transport the blocks to the actual site. If you have any questions or concrete barrier blocks in Portland, OR concerns regarding this delivery process, please give us a call. Now, let’s move on to the pick up process. In order to select pick up, the first thing you will need to do is give our team a call. One of us will gladly set you up with a date and time to come pick up your blocks at our plant. When you do come pick them up, we ask that you bring along a set of chains and/or straps that can be used to secure the blocks down to the trailer once we load them up for you. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this pick up process, please give us a call. Thank you!
