Retail and industrial parks in the North Hertfordshire towns Letchworth Garden City and Hitchin should prepare for bad weather and employ the services of a winter gritting contractor. Both towns are only a 40 minute drive from the Clearway Gritting main depot in St Albans, Hertfordshire. When snow and ice are forecast the Clearway Gritting St Albans team can travel up the A1 and service private businesses in these towns.
A main reason Clearway Gritting gets asked to grit private businesses is to grit our clients’ company car park. Some of our clients are located close to main roads but if their workforce and customers can’t park it is very difficult for their business to open in heavy snowfall. Since we were established in 2003 we have also gritted company car parks for retail parks, industrial parks, supermarkets, universities and hospitals. Some of our clients have particularly large car parks for visitors and workers so keeping them gritted in bad weather is essential.
If you are a Letchworth Garden City or Hitchin business it is important that you prepare your company adequately for bad weather. Heavy snow and ice can cause significant disruption to your business. In 2018 the Beast from the East was severe and some businesses had to close. Clearway Gritting is a winter gritting contractor available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Our St Albans team will keep your business open by gritting your footpaths, car parks, private roads. Call a member of our St Albans gritting team on 01727 851837 for a free initial consultation to discuss your requirements. We also offer a weather forecast monitoring service and can keep your salt and grit bins filled.
