Written on: September 28, 2020

Our delivery drivers are the best on the road. They have to be! They’re out there in all kinds of weather, doing their best to make sure you stay comfortable.

While our team works hard to provide the most reliable heating oil delivery in the Delaware Valley, they can sure use a helping hand.

What you can do

Ice and snow can turn an already tough job into a potentially hazardous one. Maneuvering with a heavy hose while navigating slippery surfaces can be challenging—sometimes our drivers lose their footing and sustain injuries. You can help our drivers by keeping the path to your oil tank clear and removing any nearby obstacles such as fallen branches.

We also need you to shovel or plow your driveway and keep it free of ice. Safety codes prohibit us from parking an oil truck on an incline unless it is perfectly dry and wheel chocks can be applied safely. Marking the edges of your driveway makes it easier for our drivers to navigate: Remember, just because you can get your car down your driveway doesn’t mean our 15-ton fuel truck can make it too.

Preventing run-outs

To make winter deliveries easier and stress-free for you, consider using our convenient and free automatic delivery program. Combined with a wireless tank monitor, this allows us to be accurate about your fuel needs and lets us make timely deliveries.

But if you still prefer to call for heating oil, you need to give us extra time when conditions are harsh in order to avoid running out of fuel. It’s best to call us when your oil tank falls to the one-quarter mark.

Nothing is more important than your safety and comfort, and we look forward to helping you stay safe and warm this fall and winter. The heating season begins October 1!
