When you’re choosing a discount oil provider in the Western MA and CT area, be sure to do your research. Accidents do happen, and as a homeowner or business owner, it is important to make sure you are protected—especially when it comes to choosing a discount fuel oil provider. There are many companies that are willing to deliver your oil but may not be able to do it properly. To make sure you are receiving the high level of service you deserve, please remember to ask your potential oil companies these questions:

Do you have insurance coverage?

Oil is a safe fuel, but you can never be too careful when it comes to the safety of your home and property. If the oil company does not have the proper insurance, the homeowner is responsible for any damage that is caused. This can include leaking oil tanks, malfunctioning equipment, fire damage, and more. Be sure your heating oil delivery provider has full insurance to keep your home and property safe and protected no matter what.

Do you have risk management procedures in place?

Insurance alone isn’t enough to fully qualify a heating oil delivery company to service your home and tank. They may have insurance coverage, but it is also important to know that there is a plan in place in case an accident does happen. Ask if they have a policies and procedures manual to guide employee training, ensure safe delivery, and keep your Massachusetts home and family safe and protected.

How much heating oil delivery experience do your drivers have?

In general, the longer a company has been in business, the better. The more experience an oil company has delivering discount fuel oil to its customers, the more comfortable they will be with any given situation that may arise. With that being said, this should not be a disqualifying factor; new companies can have employees with 30+ years in the heating oil delivery business at another company or from another region.

Can they provide referrals and testimonials?

The experience of previous customers can speak volumes! People who write reviews want others to know about the experience they had with the oil company, good or bad. If the MA oil delivery company provides referrals, reach out, and ask the following questions, as well as any other questions you feel are necessary and important.

    • Was oil delivery timely?
    • How was the customer service?
    • Would you call them trustworthy?
    • Would you use them again?
    • Would you recommend them to your mom?

If the answers (or details in the reviews) are positive, you can feel good about choosing the oil company to provide for your New England home heating fuel delivery needs.

Does the discount oil company have proper licensing?

This may change from state to state, but all oil delivery companies that are qualified will be licensed according to the guidelines of their state. If a license is required, they should be able to provide it for your review. If you are unsure of what licensing a company may need, call your local government offices to find out.

What is their discount fuel oil delivery area?

Does the company service your Western Massachusetts or Connecticut town? If not, it’s going to be hard to get discount oil deliveries from them! Make sure the company services the area of Massachusetts or Connecticut in which your home or business is located. Another question that’s important to ask is which days the company delivers in your area—some companies only deliver to each town one day a week. Be sure you’re getting the oil delivery flexibility you want, especially during the cold winter months.
