Be Prepared for a Heating Oil Delivery

You Can Help Our Drivers Stay on Schedule

ready for delivery connecticutWestmore Fuel drivers pride themselves on making timely heating oil deliveries even during tough weather conditions.

While our team works hard to provide the most reliable heating oil delivery in the area, they can always use a helping hand.

What You Can Do

Ice and snow can turn an already tough job into a potentially hazardous one. Maneuvering with a heavy hose while navigating slippery surfaces can be challenging—sometimes our drivers lose their footing and sustain injuries. You can help our drivers by keeping the path to your oil tank clear and removing any nearby obstacles such as fallen branches.

We also need you to shovel or plow your driveway and keep it free of ice. Safety codes prohibit us from parking an oil truck on an incline unless it is perfectly dry and wheel chocks can be applied safely. Marking the edges of your driveway makes it easier for our drivers to navigate. Keep this in mind: just because you can get your car down your driveway doesn’t mean our 15-ton fuel truck can make it too.

Obviously, our fuel trucks are much wider than your car. That’s why we 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.

Preventing Run-outs

To make winter deliveries easier and stress-free for you, consider using our convenient and free automatic delivery program.

Here’s how it works. We take into account your prior heating oil usage and the current temperatures to accurately predict when you’ll require more heating oil. We then schedule a delivery to your home before you run low.

Another benefit of automatic delivery is that it’s a free service! When you use automatic delivery, it allows us to better serve all our customers. We only deliver heating oil when you need it because we know when you require heating oil. Automatic delivery increases our efficiency and allows us to service more customers each day by streamlining our deliveries. We can also be more flexible and responsive if a customer needs an emergency heating oil delivery.

But if you still prefer to call for heating oil, you need to give us extra time when conditions are harsh in order to avoid running out of fuel. It’s best to call us when your oil tank gets to the one-quarter mark. Tip: order sooner than that if we’re in the middle of a cold snap.

Nothing is more important than your safety and comfort, and we look forward to helping you stay safe and warm all through winter.

Thanks for helping us to keep all our customers safe, warm, and satisfied with reliable, safe and on-time heating oil deliveries. Our drivers appreciate your consideration!
