Over 40-years of High Profits
Since 1973 the U-cart method of delivering small loads of concrete has succeeded in rental, landscape and building supply locations. As a business model, there are few construction related business opportunities that can compare.
You can make serious profits in this business niche with a low investment and a focused effort. High delivery charges from ready-mixed companies allow you to succeed in concrete sales and return your investment quickly.
It is not uncommon to return your initial investment in 24 to 36 months, due to the high margins that you can command. Millions of yards of concrete have been sold and Cart-Away will assist you in developing a pricing structure that will allow you to profit up to $100 or more per load, even when you sell only ¼ yard in the trailer!
The Cart-Away support team has had years of real-world experience running concrete businesses in this niche. We will share with you the tips and tricks needed to make a great ROI. We are proud to report that there are Cart-Away operators with a million-dollars in cash flow just from their concrete business. Most operators also find that adding concrete increases their sales in several add-on products or equipment rentals as well.
Concrete is the second most consumed product on earth, just behind water. The market for small quantities of concrete is massive. The latest estimates suggest that over 1.9 Billion-dollars are spent in North America each year on small concrete projects. Your opportunity comes from taking just a small piece of this very large pie.
Big Customer Base
Your sales will come from contractors, municipalities, special districts and DIYers. Many of these may already be your customers, so your new concrete business will have a ready-made customer base. You will see most of your commercial sales during the week, and on weekends you will be supporting homeowners and side-job workers. The size of your trailer fleet will be determined by the demand during your peak sales periods. Some areas have long building season and others find their sales compressed in a relatively small period. Cart-Away can assist you in determining your starting fleet size and can quickly add trailers as you will need them.

Why do this…
The benefits of selling concrete in small quantities include:
- Low capital improvement costs – A Cart-Away system will cost one-tenth the investment of a standard transit-mix operation.
- No Drivers – Since the customers hook your trailer to their truck, you never have to pay a driver. All the delivery costs are the responsibility of the customer.
- Less to Fix with Less Hassles– No big diesel engines, no massive batch plants, no big tire bills, no DOT trucking rules, and more.
