How To: Prepare For Your Fuel Delivery

Preparing for a fuel oil delivery can help ensure a smooth and hassle-free experience. Here are some tips to help you prepare for fuel oil delivery:

  1. Check your fuel level: Before scheduling a fuel oil delivery, check the fuel level in your tank to determine how much fuel you need. You can do this by using a fuel gauge or by visually inspecting the tank. If you are unsure of how many gallons to order, you can use our gallon calculator tool by clicking here.
  2. Clear the way: Make sure that the delivery truck can easily access your road, as well as your fill pipe or tank. Remove any obstacles, such as snow banks, overgrown shrubbery, unused vehicles, or debris that could hinder the delivery truck’s access to the fill pipe or tank. If the fill pipe or tank is in a difficult-to-reach area, please make sure that there is a clear path for the delivery driver.
  3. Secure pets: If you have pets, make sure to secure them inside your home during the delivery. This can help prevent accidents and ensure the safety of both the delivery person and your pets.
  4. Provide clear instructions: If you have any specific instructions for the delivery person, such as special access requirements or tank location, make sure to provide clear and detailed instructions before the delivery.

By following these tips, you can help ensure a smooth and stress-free fuel oil delivery experience. If you have any questions or concerns about fuel oil delivery, don’t hesitate to contact our office for more information.
