How should Biggleswade businesses choose a winter gritting contractor?

Clearway Gritting recommend you use our service plan when you choose your winter gritting maintenance provider. We recommend you consider the following:

  • Length of time a contractor has been in business
 Clearway Gritting has been a winter gritting contractor for over fifteen years.
  • Check the location of their winter gritting premises
When you set up your winter gritting maintenance contract it is important that you visit your gritting provider’s premises. Ideally the gritting provider should be located in the same county as your business so they can get to you easily in heavy snowfall.
  • Extensive winter gritting fleet
Your winter gritting provider should have a reliable fleet of winter gritting vehicles that can be used to grit your business premises during bad weather. The Clearway Gritting fleet is expanding rapidly and currently totals 19 spreaders and 54 snow ploughs.
  • Choose an accredited winter gritting contractor
Check that your winter gritting maintenance provider has the International Standard Organisation (ISO) accreditation to prove that they have been rated by an external agency.
  • Guaranteed salt supplies for gritting
Remember if we have a really bad winter and considerable snowfall you should choose a gritting contractor who has access to salt supplies.
