Our minimum order quantity for heating oil is 80 gallons but the more your order the better the pricing. Price breaks at 100 gallons, 125 gallons and 500 gallons.

We recommend reordering at a quarter of a tank. Use our Tank Chart Order Guide for detailed information about when to request your next oil delivery.

When placing your order you will be notified of the projected delivery date. *Note – Delivery Standard is based on projected Winter Delivery Schedule.

All deliveries will be completed within 48 business hours from date of order. You can check the expected delivery date for your order by logging into your account and clicking on the order history tab.

For electronic payment forms such as credit or debit card payment is charged when you place your order. If you order a “fill,” your card will be charged for your total tank capacity. Once delivery is made, your credit or debit card account is automatically credited for any gallons that do not fit in your tank. If you order a specific number of gallons (Example: 200 gallons) your credit or debit card will be charged for the amount of your order plus a small overage fee. Once delivery is made, your account is automatically credited for any gallons that do not fit in your tank. Either way, you only pay for the number of gallons that you receive.

Our pricing schedule contains volume discounts, so larger deliveries receive lower prices. If your tank takes a smaller quantity than you ordered, your price per gallon may be higher. If you receive a delivery of less than 80 gallons of heating oil or 100 gallons of diesel then you will be accessed a surcharge of $25 for not meeting the minimum delivery gallons in addition to the price per gallon at the lowest pricing tier. Applicable taxes will be charged as appropriate. Use Price Quote to determine your actual volume discounts.

Once you place your order your price is guaranteed for the quantity ordered.

Yes, in some areas. If you are out of oil or almost out of oil you can select one of our same day “emergency delivery” service (dependent on the time you place your order) when placing your order. An additional charge will be applied for this service.

Please read this section carefully to keep your family safe and secure:

  1. Make sure that all doors, windows and other openings are securely closed to retain as much heat as possible until your heating oil delivery is made.
  2. If you have a supplemental source of heat (woodstove, fireplace, space heater, etc.) you can use that to maintain the heat in your home. Be sure to operate these appliances safely and in accordance with the manufacture’s instructions.
  3. Make sure you are actually out of oil as your no-heat situation could be due to another problem. For example, it is possible that there is a blockage somewhere in your fuel line between your tank and your oil burner. In systems that are not regularly maintained, it is common for a blockage to occur in the filter, the strainer, or the nozzle. Other problems can also occur that will cause your oil burner to operate improperly. If you have oil, but are not getting heat, contact a local heating contractor as soon as possible.
  4. Place an order for delivery ASAP and select emergency delivery service, where available.
  5. If you have already placed an order, check online for your order status to determine when your delivery will be made.
  6. If you are out of oil, you can add kerosene or diesel fuel to your heating oil tank until your heating oil delivery arrives. Either kerosene or diesel fuel can be purchased at many local gas stations. While these fuels are more expensive than heating oil, both will burn safely in your heating oil burner. Usually 5 or 10 gallons will last for a day or two, depending upon the temperature and the size of your home.

If you have run out of oil, you likely need a Prime & Start to get the air out of your fuel line so that your burner can re-light. We have technicians available to do “Prime & Starts”. You will need to order this service online at the time you place your order and will also need to be home to give access to your boiler or furnace. If “Prime & Start” service is not available in your area, you should simply contact a local heating contractor and schedule a service call.

Not usually, as long as the driver has ready access to the fill of your fuel tank. In some jurisdictions, it is necessary for the dealer to inspect the condition of your heating oil tank on the first delivery only. If this applies in your area, and you have a basement or other inside tank, the dealer will contact you before your first delivery to make arrangements to do your “first delivery inspection”. There is no cost for this one-time inspection.

No problem. Your credit or debit card will automatically be credited for any gallons you do not receive. If you pay by check or money order you will receive a credit to you account typically within 24 business hours.  You only pay for the number of gallons you actually receive.

Normally this is because your tank could not hold all the gallons you ordered. All heating oil tanks have a “usable capacity” which is less than the actual capacity. For example a 275 gallon tank has a usable capacity of about 256 gallons. The remaining space is required during the filling process to avoid accidental spills as well as allowing for expansion of the fuel as it warms. During the filling process, the driver listens to your “fill alarm” which tells the driver when your tank is filled to its usable capacity. For safety and to avoid environmental contamination, your driver must stop pumping oil when the vent alarm indicates your tank to be full.

It is unusual for us to experience abnormal weather and operational conditions and when they occur we will alert you on the site prior to placing your order, as soon as we become aware of such conditions.

 Normal weather refers to typical weather conditions expected for that time of the year. Unusual weather conditions that could cause delivery delays can include: 

  • Inability for trucks to enter driveways or parking lots, typically due to snow and ice.
  • Poor road conditions caused by rain, snow, wind, ice, sleet, etc.
  • Weather conditions that slow deliveries such as snow, ice, wind, and temperatures.
  • Below-average winter temperatures over several days which may occasionally cause an unusual increase in demand in a short period of time.
  • Normal operational conditions refer to the typical availability of supplies and equipment required to respond to a normal number of deliveries. Unusual operational conditions that could cause a delivery delays can include:
  • Limited availability of fuel, or other supplies, that could be caused by circumstances such as terminal closures or restricted access, unavailability of fuel at terminals, other situations that cause delays in securing fuel or other supplies.
  • Mechanical breakdowns or malfunctions that limit the ability for a company to perform its normal functions.
  • Labor actions, such as work stoppages, work slowdowns or strikes, that negatively impact the ability for a company to conduct its normal business activity.

For safety reasons we are unable to allow order cancellations. Once an order is placed, our automated system immediately dispatches your order and it may already be on a delivery vehicle on its way to your home or business. Consequently we are unable to cancel your order and avoid the risk that a delivery will not be attempted. In the event that your tank has been filled by another company, and our driver attempts a delivery, it could result in an accidental oil spill or release on your property. If you have accidentally placed a duplicate order, please contact us ASAP at
