Salt & Bins

  • 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.

  • Salt/Salt Bins

    As you approach the coldest months of the year it is important to plan ahead. Preparation is key if you are to keep your premises clear, your staff and visitors safe, and your business operating as normal.

    So, if you’re a facilities manager, caretaker, site manager or health and safety coordinator, what more can you do?

    In addition to the snow clearance and gritting services we supply, we also have a range of winter maintenance products available should you wish to supplement your existing services. If you’re not sure exactly what you need, why not contact a member of our specialist gritting services team for some tailored assistance?

    Salt

    The Gritting Company can supply pre-packed rock salt in 25kg bags or bulk sacks, as well as loose tipped salt, delivered directly to your site.

    Whatever you choose, we’ll supply the highest quality British Standard BS3247 salt, sourced from long-standing trusted suppliers in the UK. This lessens the environmental impact of our winter maintenance activity and gives us utmost quality control, which is crucial to us fulfilling our promise to keep businesses operating as normal.

    The UK has experienced an influx of salt supply from overseas in recent years, to circumvent the shortage risks that some companies have previously encountered. But at what cost? The quality is variable which is something nobody can afford. That’s why we’ll keep using the same reliable UK-based partners we’ve always worked with. They’ve never let us down, and we’ve never run out of salt, something most of our competitors cannot truthfully say.
