Questions and Answers

Q: How do I know your oil is top quality?

A: We purchase our oil from the same terminals as the major suppliers. The difference is that we can deliver it to you cheaper. The oil we buy is quality tested to make certain it meets all proper specifications.


Q: Do you have a minimum delivery requirement?

A: Yes—but it’s much lower than other fuel companies. We will deliver as little as 50 gallons of heating oil to your home, but it really pays to buy more oil if you can, because the more you order, the lower your per-gallon price. For example, if you buy 100 gallons instead of two deliveries of 50 gallons, you can save approximately $20. Buying 150 gallons gets you an even lower rate.


Q: How long will it take to receive my delivery?

A: In most cases, if you call us in the morning, you can expect delivery the same day. But you should never wait until your tank is close to empty, because you could run out, and your system would have to be restarted by a professional, which would require an emergency service call.


Q: What if I run out of fuel?

A: Call us right away. If it’s before 11 a.m., we may be able to deliver your oil the same day. As stated above, there would be an additional charge to restart your system.


Q: How can I pay for my heating oil?

A: You can pay us using a credit card (VISA, MasterCard, or Discover). We also accept checks or money orders. Or we can create a billable account for you with credit approval.


Q: How do I know my credit card data and my personal data are secure?

A: Our website uses the latest, most secure encryption software; this software updates constantly to keep your information private.

Q: Can you repair my boiler/furnace if it breaks down?

A: Yes. We now have our very own certified HVAC technicians that can repair your boiler/furnace. We also offer service plans that include preventive maintenance to keep your heating system running smoothly and efficiently—and to help you avoid costly repairs. For more on this, please call.


Q: What if your price goes up before I receive my delivery?

A: Fuel prices can go up and down on a daily basis. Regardless of how much time elapses between your order and your delivery, you will always be charged the price that was in effect when you placed your order.
