Which road gritters, salt spreaders and snow ploughs can I hire?

Econ have the right winter maintenance solution

All Econ road gritters, snow clearance and salt spreading vehicles are only contracted for the operational period (minimum 26 weeks). All winter road vehicles are collected from the customer’s depot at the end of the season, fully overhauled during the summer months before being returned in time for the beginning of the winter gritting and snow clearance season.

Benefits of hiring vehicles

Innovated with you in mind

The Econ Hire Division was developed to help our customers run a winter gritting and snow clearance vehicle fleet when budgets were tight. This is a service innovation that continues to evolve in response to our business challenges; including the addition of On Hire Roadmending vehicles, fees payable only during operational months, and variable contract period lengths to suit our customers’ needs.

We innovate with you in mind.
