What does COD heating oil mean?

COD heating oil refers to the ordering of fuel oil on per delivery basis. You can order from any heating oil company at any time you’d like, unlike with contracts where you’re obligated to order from one company at usually a locked-in price. COD deliveries allow you to be in charge of your own delivery orders – you choose when to order, how many gallons and from what fuel oil company.

Why do COD heating oil companies charge much less per gallon than companies with contracts?

COD deliveries are perfect for consumers who don’t want to be locked in a long-term contract with a single supplier – it offers flexibility and control over your own fuel oil deliveries.

On the other hand, companies that offer “free service” contracts to their customers need to include in the bill charges for repairs, service technicians, repair vehicles, burner parts and a bunch of other charges so they add these fees to your fuel oil price. And so if your burner is running fine and you don’t have issues with it, regrettably you’re paying for somebody else’s oil burner repairs.

What happens if I pay for a fill-up by credit card and my tank takes fewer gallons than what I paid for?

We will charge your credit card only for the number of gallons your tank actually takes.

Do I have to be home at the time my delivery is scheduled?

Only if you selected Cash as a payment method you need to be home at the time of delivery. If you paid by credit card, you don’t need to wait for the fuel truck.

How do I know what time my delivery is scheduled for?

We cannot give you exact time of delivery due to large volume. If paying with cash you need to be home on the day of delivery. For that reason we advise you to order by credit card if you cannot be home on the day of delivery. Please don’t call requesting delivery times as that only slows us down further.

I don’t know how much oil my tank can hold, so how do I measure its capacity?

Please refer to our guide on how to measure how much fuel oil you have in your tank. Most tanks are standard-sized and it’s almost certain an example of a tank like yours can be found in that chart. However, if your tank is underground, on your next delivery you should ask the driver to measure levels of oil before and after refilling so according to the change in oil level he can find out its actual capacity. Note that there are not much standard sizes for underground tanks and it’s easy to tell your tank’s volume from others.

Would use of a fireplace affect my heating expenses?

Yes, definitely. A large flame in your house would require much air.

This would require more heating and higher heating oil consumption. Wood may be cheaper, but this way you wouldn’t save at all.
