Q – When will I be charged for my delivery?

If you order a specific number of gallons (Example: 200 gallons) your credit or debit card will be charged for the amount of your order.

Q - I am out of oil and have no heat. What can I do?
A - Please read this section carefully to keep your family safe and secure:
Q - What is a “Prime & Start”?
A - If you have run out of oil, you likely need a Prime & Start to get the air out of your fuel line so that your burner can re-light. There is a $25 fee to do this. You will need to be home to give access to your boiler or furnace. If “Prime & Start” service is not available in your area, you should simply contact a local heating contractor and schedule a service call.
Q - Do I need to be home when my delivery is made?
A - Only for the very first delivery to your home. If you are a new customer and we have never delivered heating oil to your home before, a quick tank inspection must be done before any oil is delivered. This usually only takes 5-10 minutes.
Q - What if my tank will not take all the gallons I ordered?
A - No problem. Your credit or debit card will automatically be credited for any gallons you do not receive. You only pay for the number of gallons you actually receive.
Q - Why did I not receive all the gallons I ordered?
A - Normally this is because your tank could not hold all the gallons you ordered. All heating oil tanks have a “usable capacity” which is less than the actual capacity. For example a 275 gallon tank has a usable capacity of about 256 gallons. The remaining space is required during the filling process to avoid accidental spills as well as allowing for expansion of the fuel as it warms. During the filling process, the driver listens to your “fill alarm” which tells the driver when your tank is filled to its usable capacity. For safety and to avoid environmental contamination, your driver must stop pumping oil when the vent alarm indicates your tank to be full.
Q - How do I know my credit card data and my personal data are secure?
A - Our SSL certificate is your assurance of data safety and security. Our website meets or exceeds all security standards for processing credit cards and storing personal data. We maintain PCI compliance, which is the credit card industries ongoing evaluation and acceptance of our credit card processing standards. Our data entry process is done using secure servers and all data is stored encrypted for your security. No credit card data is stored
on our computers or in our database. All credit card information is passed to the credit card processors, via our credit card gateway, which is the standard for credit card security.
Q - What does “normal weather and operational conditions” mean?
A - It is unusual for us to experience abnormal weather and operational conditions and when they occur we will alert you on the site prior to placing your order, as soon as we become aware of such conditions.
Normal weather refers to typical weather conditions expected for that time of the year. Unusual weather conditions that could cause delivery delays can include:
Q - Why can’t I cancel my order?
A - For safety reasons we are unable to allow order cancellations. Once an order is placed, our automated system immediately dispatches your order and it may already be on a delivery vehicle on its way to your home or business. Consequently we are unable to cancel your order and avoid the risk that a delivery will not be attempted. In the event that your tank has been filled by another company, and our dealer attempts a delivery, it could result in an accidental oil spill or release on your property. If you have accidentally placed a duplicate order, please contact us ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
