Now we are in spring and the chance of getting bad weather recedes it is tempting to stop your winter gritting contract, but we recommend that you keep your contract running the whole year, as we can’t guarantee that we can service your business otherwise.
You may not know, but it’s statistically more common to snow at Easter than at Christmas!
Because Easter moves between March 22 and April 25 and snow falls, on average, 4.3 days in March and 3.9 days in December it really does snow at Easter, it did this year!
We appreciate that due to the pandemic some businesses have had to close or furlough staff, but your business premises need to be operating when life returns to normal.
Why take out a winter gritting contract with Clearway Gritting
Our winter gritting contracts are tailored to our business customers. Whether you are a small private business, rent business premises, operate on an industrial park or a retail park, manage a supermarket, university or a hospital you will need assurance that you can stay open in bad weather. It is important to anyone who works at your business or visits your company that your car park, private access roads and paths will be free of ice and snow. If you don’t take out a winter gritting contract you will not be able to guarantee that your customers and staff can park safely and easily every day.
Our choice of winter gritting contract
We offer a variety of winter gritting contracts so you can set up the right contract for your business.

We offer a five day a week winter gritting package that covers your business on Monday-Friday only. This is perfect for many offices that are closed over the weekend. For retail customers, supermarkets, universities and hospitals requiring winter gritting round the clock we offer a comprehensive seven days a week, 24-hour winter gritting service.
