The benefits of using a local gritting contractor

As a local gritting contractor our knowledge and coverage of Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Buckinghamshire and North London is invaluable for our clients. 

We provide:

  • Local gritting teams a maximum of 30 minutes from client premises
  • Reactive snow clearance in minutes
  • Dedicated localised depots with gritting and snow clearance machinery 
  • Local salt depots 
  • Reduced travel times helping to minimise environmental impact
  • Experienced service delivery staff with knowledge of local weather idiosyncrasies
  • Experience of working with local businesses
  • Cost savings due to density of clients in the local area
  • Our own staff – we don’t outsource to other Gritting Companies

Clearway Gritting is a winter gritting contractor based in the south east offering value for money gritting contracts for private businesses, supermarkets, universities, retail parks and industrial parks.  

Our local gritting teams work closely with our clients to develop strong mutual working relationships. Clearway Gritting teams are trained to use a variety of modern highly maintained winter gritting and snow clearance machines.

Clearway Gritting offers winter gritting from several local bases in the south east

Clearway Gritting is the largest winter gritting contractor in the south east of England, our head office is in St Albans but we also operate from the following hubs.  

Our experienced winter gritting teams know their clients and the local area where they work, so you can be confident that if you choose us to grit your business premises and keep your car parks open in bad weather you will be working with a reliable winter gritting operator.  

Clearway Gritting colleagues have worked together for many years

As a regional gritter we work closely with all our local gritting teams. Many of the gritters who work in the local teams have been employed by Clearway Gritting for many years, so they are familiar with our gritting vehicles. We achieved the ISO 18001 accreditation so colleagues would be reassured that we operate a safe and environmentally friendly winter gritting service. For new staff our yearly refresher training ensures they are always confident to use our gritting machines. 

Our winter gritting teams all use the best winter gritting equipment 

Clearway gritting has a growing fleet of 80+ snowploughs and 36 spreaders that are used across our five depots. Although we predominantly use 3.5 tonne Vale Engineering trailed spreaders, we also have six 7.5-tonne, two 14-tonne and two 18-tonne lorries that can grit larger premises or take on work further away.

We regularly service our vehicles and we use modern, reliable and well-maintained winter gritting equipment manufactured by Econ Engineering Limited who are the largest manufacturer of winter gritting and salt spreading vehicles in the UK.

‘Clearway Gritting prides itself on offering private businesses an exceptional customer service from a local base to ensure we offer you preventative and reactive gritting reliability at all times. If you choose us as your winter gritting contractor, you will get to know your local gritting team who grit your premises and remove snow in bad weather. We have worked with our local Clearway Gritting teams in Huntingdon, Milton Keynes, Harlow, High Wycombe and Aylesbury for many years. We recognise the importance of our colleagues in providing our gritting service, so we made it our priority to achieve the ISO 18001 accreditation for health and safety. We compete with other regional and national gritting contractors on price, but we are taking on new contracts this summer because our clients are delighted with our personal gritting service. As a regional gritting contractor working across the south east of England with several local hubs, we can easily move our machinery and salt in winter, so we can always meet the demands of our clients. If you have any questions about the winter gritting contracts or require a personalised gritting quotation, please call me direct on 01727 851837.’
