How much heating oil do I need?

How much heating oil you require will greatly depend on a variety of factors. From the size of your home to how many people live at the address.

Can I spread the cost of my heating oil?

Yes! We offer a direct debit scheme to help spread the cost of your heating oil. Coupled with our automatic top up service, this means you will not only never run out of oil, but spread the costs like you would if connected to the mains. *You will need to have made at least two direct debit payments before receiving your first order.

What tanker do I need?

We have a fleet of small 4 wheelers, standard 6 wheelers or our baby tankers which operate across our network. Most properties will be delivered in either a 4 or 6 wheeler as these will be able to deliver to properties where refuse collection vehicles fit. However, for harder to reach properties we can offer our baby tanker which can access those properties which are a little more remote or where access is impaired. As always you can discuss any concerns with one of our advisors by calling 01404 831775.

They price- matched and were slightly cheaper than competitors. As requested, their driver called when on way with delivery next day. Also, unlike others, they don’t demand payment up-front for ‘promise’ of a delivery but invoice after delivery.
Altogether excellent.
