Contact your local readymix companies. I found one blog a few months old that said $81/CY, which sounds like in the right range for an area with ready access to concrete raw materials like you are in - commonly in the $70-130/CY range in much of the country, assuming you are not way away from the plant. Commonly a 3 to 5 CY or thereabout minimum charge for a readymix truck to come out - they will deliver less, but charge you for the minimum amount regardless.


If a DIY job, be sure to ask what their on-site "free" time is - typically about 15 minutes for you to empty the truck and let it go on its way- if you need more time to empty it you need to give advance notice (because their trucks are scheduled for other jobs) and pay for it - so don't plan on a truck sitting around while you try to wheelbarrow the mix to your placement location, because if more than a couple of yards it will be setting up in the truck before you get it moved unless you have several concrete buggies operating.

If you meant in-place by a contractor, then if you use the Answer This Question button right below your question and provide a bit of detail of what you are doing (patio, driveway, foundation, interior slab, etc) and dimensions, perhaps we can give you a ballpark number that is specific to your job.
