Gritting services

  • 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.


  • Gritting Services

    Many people wrongfully underestimate the impact that poor quality winter maintenance can have on an organisation.


    Worse still, some individuals overlook the need for winter maintenance provisions entirely. But it’s not just the highways that need to be gritted. If you don’t spread salt on your own site, you risk your business grinding to a halt.

    That’s why The Gritting Company’s specialist services are so highly sought after, by private organisations the length and breadth of the UK. As soon as you become a customer, you will automatically benefit from the insight of our bespoke Met Office weather forecasts, and the nationwide support of our robust gritting fleet.

    We’ll proactively monitor the weather on your behalf, taking into account any localised climates or geographical foibles, to ensure that your premises have already been gritted, before the extreme elements can take their toll. You’ll benefit from the support of an account manager at our head office – giving you one trusted and incredibly responsive point of contact for queries large and small.

    And because the weather doesn’t work on a 9-5 basis, neither do we. There’ll always be a team member on hand to help you 24/7, with no exceptions, and you’ll also be provided with emergency contact numbers for complete peace of mind. When time is of the essence and you need a rapid response, we’ll provide an answer as close to ‘immediately’ as possible. And we’ll get to you where and when we say we will, so that you’re never left out in the cold.
