If you’re looking for a gritting contractor for this winter, it makes sense to use the services of a private gritting company who are local to your premises. With many benefits such as quick response times and specialist local knowledge, UK Gritting provides a smart solution to your gritting needs. With the British weather known to be notoriously unpredictable, getting ahead with a gritting plan is a sensible option if you wish to minimise disruption and downtime to business operations.
A long-established operator
When there is predicted bad weather, it is not uncommon to see a flurry of new contractors, hoping to take advantage of the increase in demand. Look for a company that is experienced and has established gritting processes to keep your business open during the worst of the winter weather. UK Gritting, for example, has been a winter gritting contractor working extensively across the UK for many years and is part of the renowned Grounds Care Group.
Choose a company with a wide range of equipment
UK Gritting has a large fleet of vehicles, including well-maintained gritters and salt spreaders, and our own specialist equipment. Offering the best of both worlds; with offices located across the UK, and strategically placed salt depots, we are a local company with a national reach. This means that when bad weather is forecasted, you can be sure that our gritting vehicles can easily reach your destination and fulfil your service contract with ease. Waiting for a less well-established company could mean waiting for days or even weeks, which could be disastrous for your business operations.
UK Gritting is a national company with a truly regional outreach. Each team manages numerous crews, and each crew can reach approximately 25 locations each day. Our extensive network of gritting operatives means that it is highly probable that we are already carrying out work in an area close to you so adding your premises to an existing route is entirely feasible, wherever you are based. It is essential to choose local gritting services for your peace of mind. UK Gritting uses the same teams during the winter season – meaning you’ll get the same familiar faces coming to your site wherever possible. This is ideal for efficient service delivery and vital for highly secure sites. All of our gritting operators are properly checked, and safety trained and familiar with the route they will need to use to get to your business.
Mobile gritting services leading the way with technology
We’re proud to be one of the best gritting services in the country – a country which often has a reputation for being unprepared for snow and blizzards. As a company, we heavily invest in the latest weather forecasting technology to ensure a high level of customer service.
UK Gritting has chosen to work closely with the Met Office because it provides the most precise weather forecasting service and allows us to receive all of the highly accurate and detailed weather information required for the safety of all involved. Our bespoke platform allows us to view detailed and accurate data 24/7. Our weather forecasting technology can give us detailed weather reports for the exact area of your business. When the temperature drops below a certain point, our operatives will be deployed to keep your business running by either carrying out gritting or snow removal.
Our unique weather forecasting and timetabling software allows us to offer clients a smooth and fully integrated service by allowing them to access real-time data. This state-of-the-art software sets us apart from our competitors and enables us to provide our clients with the following services:
Access bookings and client data via a convenient smartphone app. UK Gritting operatives can update work orders whilst at work.
Get detailed driving directions to prevent any delays for customers.
Track job locations, and record arrival and departure times so you can stay fully informed about the progress of gritting operations.
The UK Gritting team will also take signed photos of before and after images of the site so visual proof of any work carried out can be provided if necessary.
The British weather is known for its unpredictability, but UK Gritting can help your business and premises stay ahead of the game by being fully prepared. For peace of mind during the next cold snap, contact UK Gritting.
