    How many yards of concrete to pour a 12x12 slab 6" thick for a hottub. I've only done two and they were 8x8 and used bags, and i know that was probably more expensive. Anyone in NJ tell me how much they would charge for this, how much a yard($100?), how much for delivery? How long do I get the truck for? I will only need to move the concrete about 30 feet. Thanks for all the information.

    hmm call your local redi mix plant. All those questions vary depending on the plant.

    Thats almost 4 Tons or 2.66 yards. Clayton Charges $100 bucks fuel surcharge on ANYTHING until further notice. Not sure what their per CY charge is but I get notices mailed to me monthy and their prices went up several dollars per CY since December 06. Better price it good, or just go rent a mixer from Home Depot. (I own my own and love it)

    Clayton charges me 100 for delivery total, that's what you mean right? It used to be 70, then jumped to 90, 100 is still a great deal to deliver 20 tons of roadstone. i'll call tomorrow, just trying to get some idea. thanks!

    Just multiply 12 x 12 x 0.5, which gives you the cubic feet of concrete and divide by 27 to change it to 2.67 cubic yards. Order 3 yards for shrinkage/waste/etc.
