Make your heating oil and propane deliveries quick and easy this Winter
Help us, help you! The two best ways that can make your delivery go smoother
As we all know, weather here in the Boston area can be pretty unpredictable – especially during the winter (remember last year’s record low temperatures in January? They came just after near record high temperatures in December).
That kind of seesawing weather keeps a propane and heating oil delivery company like ours on its toes day and night – both to deliver the fuel that keeps your family warm and safe, and to maintain a fleet that’s up to the challenges that Mother Nature and New England present us.
The good news is that being prepared is something we have become pretty good at over the years…especially when we get some help from you! That’s right, you play a big part in keeping fuel deliveries coming during the winter – both to your home and to the hundreds of your neighbors we serve.
How can you play your part in keeping families warm and safe? By doing these two important things:
- Keep a path clear to your fill pipe or propane tank – Maneuvering with a heavy hose while walking on slippery surfaces can be a challenge, to say the least: if a driver loses his footing, he can easily get injured, and his pace of work may be significantly slowed. If it snows, please try to keep a minimum 12-inch path to your propane tank’s fill valve or heating oil fill pipe clear so we can access it quickly and safely.
- Clear your driveway – One of your biggest obstacles to getting to your propane tank is navigating our delivery trucks on steep driveways. Our delivery vehicles need a 9-foot to 10-foot-wide clear path in your driveway to allow enough room to maneuver. It also helps if you mark the borders of your driveway if the snow has covered them.
Thanks as always for your business, and for helping us keep your heating oil and propane coming when you need it most!
