Our Ready Mixed Concrete

Ready mixed concrete is made up of differing levels of water, aggregate and cement, depending on the type of solution you need. Our ready mixed concrete is blended on-site within 7 seconds, fresh and ready to use.

The alternative to ready mix is to have the various materials delivered to your site separately and for the mixing to happen there. This is often a slower process as the mixing takes time, and it’s less environmentally friendly as usually the cement is delivered in bags which generates packaging waste. This option can also produce different consistencies which will result in different strengths and colours.

We’re always happy to help customers choose the right type and amount of concrete for the job, so if you’re unsure, please call us.

We only ever charge for the concrete you use. So if you order 3m3 of ready mixed concrete but actually only use 2m3, we’ll only charge you for that 2m3. And if you need more than you’ve ordered, as long as there’s enough in the delivery vehicle (which can carry up to 9m3) we can meet your needs.

As a business founded and built in Essex, we’re determined to help people in our local community get the quality cement they need to improve or extend their homes.

We deliver ready mixed concrete to the following areas: Basildon, Benfleet, Chelmsford, Grays, Maldon, Rayleigh, Southend, Wickford.

The materials we use for our ready mixed concrete are supplied by trusted partners we’ve been using since Essex Concrete & Screed was founded. And our teams have all the tools they need to ensure those materials are mixed to perfection, so you get the exact concrete your project needs.

If you have broken, uneven or sunken areas of concrete at your home, we also offer a concrete levelling service to repair these areas, leaving them looking as good as new.

We make getting the concrete you need quick and easy. If you need help at any stage, just call us! Our friendly team will be happy to help, especially if you’ve never ordered concrete before.

Step 4: Together, we’ll arrange a delivery date and time that’s convenient for you. We can usually deliver within 2 to 3 days of receiving your order and offer 2-hour time slots.

Step 5: Let us know where you want your concrete delivered and we can make sure there’s room for our vehicle (or make alternative arrangements such as using a concrete pump).

On delivery day, you can track the whereabouts of your concrete delivery truck online. Once we reach your destination, it’s up to you to let the driver know where you want your concrete poured out of the truck.

We usually offload via our 5m chute, onto a plastic sheet, into a skip, or into wheelbarrows. It usually takes a maximum of 10 minutes to offload each cubic metre of concrete. Our delivery drivers cannot wait longer than 10 minutes per cubic metre as they will most likely have other deliveries to make. But they will be happy to offer advice and assistance where possible.

We use a sliding scale to work out our prices. The bigger your order, the bigger the discount we can give you. Please call for a bespoke quote or use our online calculator. We take payment after delivery. No deposit is required.

You will have ten minutes per cubic metre with which to offload.
