Why prioritise setting up a winter gritting contract?

With unpredictable global weather patterns Clearway Gritting recommend that you prioritise setting up a winter gritting maintenance contract before the Autumn. In recent years the UK has experienced heavy winter snowfall in the first months of winter.  The ‘Beast from the East’ was also so severe that it meant some businesses had to shut as they hadn’t prepared adequately.  We recommend getting a gritting contract organised now.  When the snow falls Clearway Gritting get phone calls from businesses who want us to come and grit their company premises but at this stage it may betoo late to organise a contract.  

Peter Boniface, Operations Manager, Clearway Gritting, St Albans, Hertfordshire said:

‘With the summer months still with us and businesses not yet thinking about winter snowfall, getting a winter gritting contract in place now, will benefit your business if we get an early and particularly harsh winter.  We find many of our clients are particularly concerned about car park gritting.  Some customers such as retail clients have large car parks for their customers and must have them cleared when we get snowfall.  Also, many businesses are not set up for colleagues to work from home, so staff must be able to get into work and park their car safely.  In recent years, we have also had situations where heavy snowfall happens during the day, so anyone at work has to be able to get their car out of the carpark and travel home safely.  Although only the main roads are gritted by the county council gritting teams, gritting contractors like us work with private, commercial and industrial clients so that everyone can move around safely in bad weather.’

What winter gritting contracts does Clearway Gritting offer?

Andrew Sherriff, Director, Clearway Gritting, St Albans, Hertfordshire said:

‘Clearway Gritting offers a variety of winter gritting contracts to suit your individual circumstances, including pay per visit and fixed price options.  We offer winter gritting at your business premises five, six or seven days a week and our gritting teams offer a twenty four hour service, so you will be reassured that if we get bad weather your business can remain open.  As well as gritting and removing snow from your carpark and access roads we make sure that your nominated pathways are gritted, so that there is minimal danger to anyone on your premises. Clearway Gritting employs a team of trained gritting specialists who work across the south east of England from depots in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex and North London, so we are never too far away from you.  We have 36 spreaders and over 80 snow ploughs that are on standby in bad weather to keep your business working.’
