Gritting & Snow Clearance
Our main St Albans gritting depot in Hertfordshire is only a 25-minute drive from Luton in Bedfordshire via the A414 and the M1. Our winter gritting maintenance team supports a variety of Luton based businesses and schools, supermarkets, industrial parks and retail parks.
Clearway Gritting has the largest centralised winter gritting fleet in the south east of England, so we are never too far away from any Luton business. Our winter gritting maintenance team has been working over fifteen years supporting a range of clients in local counties across the south east including Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, Buckinghamshire, North London and Cambridgeshire.
Our own teams manage winter gritting and salt spreading from seven local depots and we do not operate franchises or sub-contract out our gritting services. Our teams receive regular annual training so they understand how our winter gritting equipment works and can provide effective winter gritting maintenance to all our Luton clients.
We have 36 spreaders and over 80 snow ploughs that are on standby in bad weather to keep your Luton business working. Many of our clients contact us looking for car park gritting as they are concerned that their colleagues or customers will not be able to park in bad weather. We always offer a personalised gritting service appropriate to your business. We remind clients that it’s not just the company car park that needs gritting during the bad weather, but pathways, private roads and pavements. We will always remove snow first before applying salt and grit so your business is safe, and your colleagues can keep working.
