Fleet of Nationwide Vehicles

  • Why work with us?

    We have been recognised for our approach to quality, environmental, and health and safety management, as evidenced by our UKAS accredited, BSI audited ISO9001, 14001 and 18001 certifications.

    We also proudly hold CHAS, SafeContractor, Contractor Plus, Achilles, Construction Line, Altius and Safe Mark accreditations, giving you peace of mind that The Gritting Company cares about on-site performance and the highest standards across the board. We are also founder members of RHA & CPA.

    We believe we are the UK’s only winter maintenance specialist that can truthfully say we have never run out of salt. With strong supplier relationships, the ability to haul our own salt, and stockyards with 20,000 tonnes of BS 3247 salt in reserve, we will always have spare capacity.

    Our in-house weather experts are trained to Met Office gold quality mark standard, enabling them to accurately interpret the most trusted, reliable and current Met Office forecast data supplied in the UK, throughout the day.

    We combine our proven monitoring expertise with unrivalled knowledge of localised climates and geographical variances, to ensure our gritting teams hit the road exactly when the time is right.

    Because we have the most comprehensive fleet of gritting vehicles, salt spreaders and snow clearance equipment in the country, of course we want to protect them. But this isn’t the main reason for our long-standing investment in GPRS tracking.

    The system allows us to document and evidence every single site we visit, providing us with a comprehensive audit trail of all our activity for the last five years. The live tracking information also feeds into our advanced job management system, enabling us to provide an unbroken, nationwide service with utmost client transparency.

    We have never believed in a one size fits all approach. That’s why we’re the chosen gritting and snow clearance specialist for private clients, large and small, throughout the whole of the UK.

    From local GP surgeries to national retail parks and leading supermarkets, there are no sites we cannot support, and our high quality services are always provided at the most competitive price possible.


  • Fleet of nationwide vehicles



    • We have a full range and variety of lorry-mounted gritters, snow ploughs and JCBs, through to much smaller equipment and even hand operated salt spreaders. Collectively, this gives us the most extensive and varied winter maintenance fleet in any privately-owned UK company.
    • Our vehicles are strategically located at over 63 depots throughout the UK, giving full national coverage.
    • Our lorry mounted gritting units carry around 10 tonnes of salt each, sufficient to cover their full route and giving the ability to spread extra salt in severe weather conditions.
    • In-keeping with our ISO14001 accreditation, our new vehicles are also compliant with Euro 6 emission standards, to minimise the environmental impact of our operations.

    • Whether we’re covering vast acres of land or navigating our way around incredibly restrictive car parks and courtyards, we’ll arrive with the best-fit technology for the job at hand.
    • We utilise state-of-the-art GPRS tracking to monitor and evidence the whereabouts of our vehicles, providing us with an audit trail of all our jobs from the last five years.
    • We undertake our own preventative fleet maintenance during the summer months to ensure we’re fully prepared to tackle the elements when adverse weather conditions hit.
