What we do

Our winter maintenance services

Our winter maintenance teams are on 24/7 standby to ensure public safety within your car parks and premises. Whether you have one site or multi sites that require a quick response gritting service, Yards Apart have the extensive knowledge and equipment to treat all large car parks and approach roads which require large carrying capacity machines.

If it is a small site that requires smaller manoeuvrable units, this is where our ATV with SnowEx spreader comes in handy.

Footpaths and those hard to access areas require our pedestrian spreaders. Therefore, we match our equipment to site size and accessibility. After all, it is the accuracy and evenness of the spread that matters.

Snow clearance
Snow Clearing

Snow clearing is for those conditions which are so severe that simply ploughing the snow to the side of the road is not enough, but the snow specifically needs lifting and moving to a designated area or even taken off site by trucks.

Yards Apart has all of the requirements to complete this task along with the vehicles to transport the snow. Like snow ploughing these services are complimented by a salt spreader following as the snow is cleared.
