Winter Services

We offer a 24-hour service with specialist gritting and snow-clearing vehicles and equipment to service effectively everything from large car parks to public footpaths.

By constantly monitoring weather conditions in the specific areas where we operate, we can ensure that your staff, visitors and residents can access your site and their homes safely all year round.

Nationwide service

We provide a winter service on a proactive or reactive basis throughout the whole of the UK from our numerous depots, from the south of England to Aberdeen in Scotland.

Proactive agreements

Staff local to the sites respond to specific agreed temperature thresholds, with data supplied independently by the Met Office “Open Road” forecasting system. The service can be supplied 5, 6 or 7 days a week dependent on the requirements of the client and their site.

Gritting procedures

We carry out gritting either during or outside normal working hours so as to reduce the disruption to the business or residential location.

24 hour response

Contact numbers are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to respond to emergency call-outs if needed.

Modern equipment

All equipment is designed for purpose. Salt spreaders and ploughs can be controlled from the cab, allowing the application rate and spread to be altered to suit the weather conditions and the layout of each individual site.

Salt/grit

We use white and red salt which meets with BS 3247:2011 quality standards. We are also able to apply liquid salt either from vehicles or by controlled pedestrian knapsacks. We work with optimum stock levels to ensure that the service we provide will not be disrupted by shortages.

Environment

We operate to Road Department specifications on application rates and are able to control the width of spread so as not to harm soft landscaped areas.

Health and safety

All our staff are issued with appropriate thermal/high visibility workwear and are trained and experienced in the use of the equipment. All equipment is properly lit so it is very visible to all road users and pedestrians.

Reporting

We provide daily reports on the works undertaken. Using vehicle tracker information from our partner Chameleon Tracking, we can detail when vehicles arrive and leave sites. Invoicing will detail the days on which work was undertaken and will be raised weekly or monthly as preferred by the client.
