Welcome to Yorkshire Gritters

Don't slip up this winter

Providing the grit and service to keep your customers safe in winter.

True Yorkshire Grit!

Why choose Yorkshire Gritters?

In an age where litigation and accusation can be made with ease it is paramount that you do the utmost within your capabilities to reduce the risk to your staff, visitors, deliveries, customers and patients in accordance with the HSE 1992 Act (Also including the HSE Preventing Slips and Trips at Work Act 2005) which states that in abnormal weather conditions, arrangements should be made to minimise risks from snow and ice on access routes (Pedestrian and Traffic). Meeting the requirement of this regulation can involve the application of salt and the clearing of snow.

 Winter Is Coming!

Taking into account previous winters the only thing guaranteed is the un-expected. The Winter of 2017 / 2018 saw some of the coldest prolonged sub-zero tempartues in the last 50 years, and a late snow storm in March left many people isolated and unprepared. Yorkshire Gritters are here to help you prepare for whatever the future winters bring, and they are predicted to get worse, not better.

Operating throughout Yorkshire, Lancashire, Chesire, Darlington and South Lincolnshire makes Yorkshire Gritters your ideal solution for road, pavement and car park gritting as well as de-icing and snow removal.

Of course we don't simply want to come out for no reason just to balance the books. Our aim is to be proactive, taking the hassle away from you directly leaving you to carry on running your business..

We monitor the weather in your area via the Met office, a decision is then taken by early afternoon and a spreading route planned. Your site is then visited before your next working day giving you piece of mind that access has been made as easy as possible for those arriving first and then throughout the day.
