According to Home Advisor’s recent study (2021), On average, most concrete delivery costs for ready mix concrete range between $100 and $150 for one cubic yard (the smallest amount you can order). Extra charges for short-loads below 10 yards can go as high as $170.
A small amount for the sidewalk can range between $250 and $320 while a garage or driveway slab can cost as high as $1270. If the job site is 20 miles or more from the mixing plant, this could attract extra costs starting at $10. Normally, the prices will vary depending on your location, the strength of the mixture, and supplier rates.

Ready-mix concrete is transported to a worksite through a transit mixer (a mixer attached to a truck). The truck bears a discharge chute that makes pouring easier. If the mixture is wet, the delivery will be made in under 1.5 hours.
The smallest amount of concrete that you can order is around 8-10 cubic yards truckload at a rate of $119-$147/ cubic yard. On a more general note, it’s better to have more ready mix concrete than less. So always order 10% more than your estimated needs.
