Dissatisfied with your winter gritting contractor – call us now?

Monday 27 February, 2023

Looking for alternative local gritting options?

The sudden cold snap in December 2022 tested all winter gritting teams. Snow fell quickly, and ice made conditions very difficult to manage. However, Clearway Gritting teams visited all our client’s premises to clear snow and ice during this period. Our teams cleared snow from company car park and access roads and paths so customers, colleagues and visitors could visit the following day.

Largest gritting contractor in the South East

We managed to make over 700 site visits per night on our regular gritting contracts during the week 11th - 15th December. As the largest winter gritting contractor operating in the South East of England, Clearway Gritting offers our clients peace of mind. Our gritting teams located in St Albans, Aylesbury, High Wycombe, Harlow, Huntingdon, and Milton Keynes can always reach our clients’ business premises, even in the worst of weather conditions.

Why use a well-established winter gritting contractor?

Clearway Gritting was set up in 2004 and has survived several economic downturns and the Covid pandemic. Our local gritting teams serve many different businesses across many sectors. Examples of these organisations include supermarkets, schools, hospitals, industrial and retail parks. Although we work with large private businesses who sign up to a 24-hour 7 day a week gritting contract, we also work with many smaller companies who require pay as you go gritting services.

Winter gritting services provided across the South East

Clearway Gritting works with private businesses in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Essex, North London, Cambridgeshire, and Buckinghamshire. We serve all the major towns and cities in these counties but have clients in Milton Keynes, Watford, Amersham, High Wycombe, Slough, and Hemel Hempstead. if you choose to sign a gritting contract with Clearway Gritting remember our gritting teams are going to be located nearby, and no more than 30 minutes from your company premises.  

Established local gritting teams who know their clients

Our gritting teams are experienced and well trained and have worked together for many years. We use the most modern snow clearance machinery. When new clients sign up our teams will come out and visit your company, so we are both clear on what services you require. We offer a range of different winter gritting contracts so you can always select a gritting and snow clearing service that is right for you.  

Call our St Albans head office on 01727 851837 to discuss switching gritting contracts. We can sometimes offer gritting discounts where we operate in local areas with many clients located close by.

How to change your gritting contractor?

Anand Clarke, Operations Manager, Clearway Gritting, St Albans, Hertfordshire said: 

‘Clearway Gritting has been very busy this winter taking on new clients. We like to fully discuss a client’s requirements before recommending a suitable gritting package. We don’t outsource our gritting, so if you join us you will get to know your gritting team, as we instruct all teams to know their clients and business premises. 

We’re finding many of our new clients have had gritting contracts before but have changed contractor mid-season because of the difficulties they experienced in December 2022. Gritting contractors should always be prepared for extreme and protracted weather conditions, as this is when their services are most needed. 

Like the ‘Beast from the East’ the December cold snap highlights the dangers of not organising a winter gritting contract. 

That week we received calls from prospective clients who needed immediate snow clearance and gritting, but when bad weather arrives it’s too late to act. 

Given climate change and the unseasonal weather we are experiencing across the globe, we recommend all private businesses set up a gritting contract now for next winter, to ensure effective gritting and snow clearance service. 

We have a variety of options to suit all sizes of private company. Our clients like the flexibility of different pricing options and packages and they can alter their contract every year when we review it. 

In Summary…
