Steve’s U-Cart Concrete is a Ready mix concrete company that specializes in small quantities of concrete that customers tow in a U-Cart and place themselves.

Extreme devotion to providing an excellent product to our customers and very demanding, long, labor intensive days of hard work.
What are your companies goals?
Our company’s goal and motto is to never have people mix concrete by hand again.
If you had one piece of advice for someone just starting out, what would it be?
Do some homework. Be prepared for whatever it is that you are pouring. Plan ahead and enlist some good quality labor to assist you.
What are your hours of operation during this time?
Hours change through the seasons, but approximately 8 AM to 6 PM Monday to Saturday.
How has your business adapted to the COVID-19 outbreak?
Because this is my off-season, things are naturally slow. We have lost most of our homeowner customers but contractors are still utilizing us.
