Low prices vs. full-service: It makes a big difference with heating oil providers.

Just like most other purchases, choosing the cheaper option isn’t always the best way to go if you want the best heating oil provider. A company that’s always there when you need them, with services to help you save on annual energy costs or smarter ways to manage your budget.

Check out these facts to see that a bargain isn’t always the best choice for your home heating oil company:

Full-service heating oil companies normally provide:

  • Local 24/7 customer service and support, in any weather
  • Flexible pricing plans and monthly budget payment plans to help you manage your annual energy costs.
  • A steady and solid oil supply that never runs out of oil, even in severe winter weather seasons.
  • More technicians on their team, who are expertly trained and fully qualified to handle all your equipment service and repair needs.
  • More delivery options, like automatic delivery or call when you need one.
  • A range of comprehensive tune-up and service plans with options and coverage to suit your budget and needs.

‘Lower priced’ oil company companies normally:

  • May not be available after hours, on weekends or holidays.
  • May offer just one pricing plan and no payment plan – or none of these at all!
  • Have more potential for delivery issues because of supply and demand during busier seasons and prolonged severe winter weather.
  • Have less technicians on-hand to help when you need it most and the technicians could be from third party companies hired to help the oil company.
  • Do not have the resources that a full-service company might have to take care of all your home heating oil needs.

Don’t be fooled by a bargain that a discount oil company may seem to provide you with. Always think through exactly what you get vs. what you really need when choosing the best heating oil company for home.
