Default How much should I pay for concrete formed and poured?

So I need a bit of concrete poured. One is a 30x40 slab the other is a 14x28 apron out front of a shop door. Not sure what the price of concrete is right now, but what should I be paying per yard?

Is the big slab just flat work, or include footings?

Foundation will be 9 to 10 a square foot not including dirt work. If you have no beams or footings a little less. The flatwork should be in the 4 to 5 a square foot

Slab is just a level off and pour. No footing or anything. It’s inside a building that used to be a steel factory so they left this area dirt so they could paint beams and such. So now I want it concrete. It needs to be dug out 4” and poured. Plus I want wire put in as well.

Inside a building I would budget $5 per sf, and that will cover pretty much everything including Buggies to get from the truck to the slab, wire, vapor barrier and curing compound. If you can get the Concrete truck to pour off the chute, $4.20 max per square foot.

Just saw the quotes. Not knowing the exact details they look fair to me.

My mother paid $5k for a 20'x20'x6" done by Jose the Professional YouTuber. I told her it was too low a price to be an actual professional. Moron had no idea how to use a float. Caught him watching a YouTube how-to. Also get the pleasure of redoing the driveway where the weight of the cement truck grooved the pavement and the cement walkway before I got there.

Craig I just paid 144 a yard for a 14x28 patio that I poured and finished myself. That was farmers services in Smithfield right near you.

i poured 88 yards with 3 of us and I said never again! I just don’t have it in me. Sometimes you just need to farm some stuff out and this is one of those moments

A square yard or a cubic yard? Concrete alone by Cubic yard is $350 to $400. And I buy THOUSANDS of yards.

EDIT, that is my minimum truck charge, so I I wanted less than 4 yards. I dont know why that stuck in my brain last night

$400 a (cubic) yard for just the concrete, delivered? Seems a tad high...

You're smoking crack!

Assuming you are talking just material, ready mix concrete should be around $120/cubic yard

10 yard pour, using a concrete buggy to move the concrete from the truck to the forms. I did most of the forming. Three guys, most of a day. Place and finish, $3000 which included the cost of the concrete.
