Buy Or Lease a Propane Tank? Which Is Better?

Leave the work to us with simple, no-hassle leasing!

So, you’re shopping around for a new propane tank. Perhaps your current propane tank may no longer be large enough to meet your needs for propane, as you may have added new propane appliances like a fireplace or range to your home. Your tank might even be showing signs of failure; something that may be due to lack of maintenance or a long shelf life.

If you have recently bought a new home, the propane tank on the property may be one the previous owners leased from their prior propane delivery company. In this case, no propane delivery company besides that one will fill up that specific tank. So, your choice is to either stick with that company, or find another one and get a new tank.

In any instance, replacing your existing propane tank is in order. Which route should you take?

Have no fear. Frank Lamparelli is here to help!

The first goal is to make sure you have the right propane tank for your South Shore, Massachusetts home for years to come—and that’s something our experts will work directly with you on; going over your propane needs thoroughly, considering factors such as:

  • The size and square footage of your home
  • How many propane appliances you have currently
  • If you are planning to add more propane appliances or perform any renovations or additions in the near future
  • Your home heating trends and prior fuel usage

All that information helps us determine the proper size of propane tank for your home.

But is leasing a propane tank better than owning?

Let’s look at both options. The biggest advantage of owning your propane tank is that you’re not tied to one supplier; you can buy your propane from anyone.

But, unless you plan to keep going through the hassle of switching from supplier to supplier, you are better off leasing a tank from a company that you like and trust. Why is that? Because when you buy a tank outright, the responsibility for the tank is also yours. The upfront costs of buying and installing, as well as maintenance, repairs, fees, safety checks, and more are yours to keep track of. In fact, buying and installing your own tank could cost anywhere from $450 to $3,000, depending on its size and type!

When you lease your propane tank from Frank Lamparelli, we handle the maintenance, repairs, and propane delivery. Your propane tank will be of top quality and will be installed to the highest safety standards. You can leave all the work to us! In the end, most of our customers find that leasing a tank is far and away more cost-effective and lessens worries, too.

Whether you’re a homeowner or a business owner, Frank Lamparelli would love to be your trusted company for propane delivery and propane services. We maintain our own 30,000-gallon propane storage site right on our property, so you’ll always have the fuel from us that you need!
