FREE Automatic Delivery: The Key to No-Runout Peace of Mind

Peace of mind

Posted: October 4, 2018

Last year’s crazy heating season was a lesson in the importance of being prepared.

For will call customers, that lesson was hard-earned: the sudden onset of record-low temperatures led to a rapid rise in demand for fuel, which created several challenging weeks as they waited their turn for a heating oil or propane delivery.

Our automatic delivery customers, on the other hand, avoided many of this problems – and best of all, they did it for FREE.

If you’re not familiar with Automatic Delivery, here are a few questions to see how this convenient service works. If you have more, feel free to contact us!

  1. How does FREE Automatic Delivery work? It’s simple: our computers calculate how much fuel you’re likely to use based on your past bills and the current weather (if you’re a new customer, we’ll estimate your fuel use based on neighborhood averages for a home your size). When your tank reaches about one-quarter full, we’ll automatically schedule your fuel delivery.
  2. Is automatic delivery available for heating oil or propane? We offer both FREE propane automatic delivery and FREE heating oil automatic delivery.
  3. What’s the difference between FREE Automatic Delivery and Will Call? – With Will Call delivery, you are responsible for tracking your heating oil levels and scheduling your deliveries; you may also have to wait for a refueling until our trucks are available. With FREE Automatic Delivery, you won’t have to think about fuel levels, worry about run-outs, or manage your heating oil or propane deliveries.
  4. Why is automatic delivery FREE? – Automatic Delivery is free because it benefits us, too. It helps us to schedule our deliveries efficiently so we can serve all our customers and avoid having to send crews out to deal with emergency run-outs.
  5. How will I benefit from FREE Automatic Delivery?
    • No more managing your fuel supply – You’ll never have to check your fuel gauge or remember to call for an appointment
    • No more waiting for delivery – Our technicians just show up and refill your tank – there’s no hassles and no waiting around for a truck to become available.
    • No more run-outs – or their consequences – You’ll be prepared for any long cold spell, and you’ll never have to worry about run-outs or their consequences – like the expense of having your burner restarted or damage from water pipes that freeze and burst.
