"Called and requested a fill up, they were prompt in getting me on the schedule. Tank was filled the next day and the bill left in the door. Payment was easy through the website.

"Monday, called for next day delivery of oil. Next day came. No delivery. Called after hours (~5:18pm), which is after normal business hours, told trucks would" be out until 8:00 pm. If don't receive delivery call back. 7:50 pm., still received no oil delivery. Called company back, and was told that unless you are on automatic delivery, company will not respond as an emergency! Explained that the delivery was scheduled for next day in advance and that we are out of oil, and a long term customer! Still told will not be responding. Have never had a payment issue with this company, or customer service issue until several weeks ago, when we were told it would take a week to get oil delivered! In the meantime, they have charged our account for the $500+ they quoted for the oil they didn't deliver!

Should I replace my current heating system?

Now that both oil and gas have risen in price and heating systems have become so much more efficient, it's wise to consider different replacement options.

Even when a fuel oil tank has been pumped, about 5-10 gallons of sludge and oil will remain in the tank after pumping, says Gorman. (Photo courtesy of Timothy Gorman Contractor)

Even supposedly empty fuel oil tanks are a risk for oil leaks and spills. Avoid costly cleanup and have your fuel oil tank removed by an experienced contractor.

They provided the oil when expected. Of low-cost providers they are almost always near the cheapest. Out of a dozen or more fills I've never had a bad tank from them, and they don't charge a premium for credit cards. Usually the oil is next day delivery but you can sometimes get same day if you order early morning.

We have switched to this company from an oil company we had used for over 15 years. Since we have done so our oil heating costs have dropped significantly. Our usage actual oil usage has dropped as well. The only thing that actually changed was getting a new delivery service so we are somewhat mystified by this.

appears to be a smaller firm that has not lost its connection with their customers. Everyone we have dealt with at the company has been courteous and helpful. This includes the owner, billing person and the delivery people that drive the trucks. A welcome experience from our old oil supply company.

When I had my furnace cleaned by a local plumber, I asked the technician how dirty my system was, on a scale of 1-100. He told me that on that scale, my system was only a 10, which was only a light film that barely needed cleaning. I was thrilled! I asked him why my system was so much cleaner than what I had expected. He told me that the reason was equally in part due to my burner running optimally and also the quality of fuel I purchase. B & B is 23 miles from Pottsville in Kulpmont, but they usually show up the next day when I call them. They are very very reasonable. At this point, I'd be afraid to get oil anywhere else, due to how clean burning their oil is, especially given their low prices.

I was very pleased with the entire experience. I was able to get my appointment scheduled promptly with all my questions answered. On the day of the job the crew called as promised to let me know when they'd be arriving. They were very punctual. They encountered a problem when they arrived- my bulkhead was covered in ice and snow and could not be used. The crew worked hard to find a solution including moving appliances and furniture to bring the tank through the house. Obviously this was challenging but they did it with no damage to my house or belongings. They returned everything to its correct place before they left. I was also happy they put down a plastic runner to keep snow and dirt off my floors. The entire job was done in 2 hours. The crew were polite and professional. I'm glad I found them through Angie's list.

They only filled the tank half way and left no note indicating that they would come again to top it off. I had to call twice to remind them that they should fill the system.

We had 30 gallons of heating oil left (we use about 5 gallons a day), so we ordered 100 Gallons of heating oil from
Mechanicsburg Heating Oil Suppliers Provider Name Locked
(since they are only a few city blocks from us) on Feb. 9th. We were told the delivery would take place on Feb.10 and were charged for the delivery on Feb. 11th. All other heating oil companies charge you AFTER they deliver the oil, so we figured it was delivered as scheduled and charged. We ran out of oil early Feb. 15. Because we had no heat and it was expected to get down into the Fahrenheit teens, we contacted their "24/7 emergency line" and they said they would get someone out right away... I called back later that day, and they said someone would call and get it delivered first thing on Monday. After dealing with a heat-less night, Monday rolls around and no call. So we call them back and they want to charge us a second time for the same delivery and that someone would be out shortly. After calling back at 3pm, they say someone may be out after 5 pm that day. While our patience was running thin we tried to be as cordial with the customer service staff as possible, but that was even made difficult because 2 out of the 5 calls made, the staff was short tempered, unknowledgeable, and unhelpful.

I later called another heating oil company, Capitol Oil, on Monday afternoon and they were able to deliver heating oil even before

The deal I have with
Mechanicsburg Heating Oil Suppliers Provider Name Locked
is
Mechanicsburg Heating Oil Suppliers Provider Name Locked
. Refill my oil tank when it hits 50% full and charge it to the credit card that I have on file with them. This approach was necessary because I do not live in the house in the winter and delivery delays caused by snow storms could result in an out of oil situation which could cause tens of thousands of damage to the house from burst pipes.
On Thursday, February 19th, 2015, the temperature being in the high teens, I happened to come to the house for the weekend and found that the heat was working fine. However, within an hour, we ran out of oil. If we had not fortuitously made this visit, the house would have been ruined.
I called the company and learned that they did have a delivery scheduled for the next day, and would also send out a technician with both a few gallons of oil and the ability to restart the furnace by priming it so that we could get through the night. The technician, did come and gave excellent service, but did describe what a mess they had on their hands with so many of their customers running out of oil.
The next day, Friday, having received no oil by 1:30 p.m., I called the office and learned that the truck was on the way. Specifically, I was told that the truck was in Centerville and had four stops to make in that area and would then come to my house. The office staff member was confident that it would most likely be there within a couple of hours. She also commented that the company was in chaos.
After no truck had arrived by 5:30 p.m., I called the office again. This time, only the answering service responded and suggested that she could leave a message which would be picked up by the office early the next morning, thus leaving us without heat on a night on which the temperature was near zero. I successfully prodded the person at the answering service to come up with an alternative, and she called the field technician who was on duty that night. He did call me and explained that he was in Wellfleet and had several "out-of-oil" stops to make in that area and in Dennisport before coming to me, but would definitely be there. In fact, he did come with a bit more oil and was very nice as well as professional. He also commented about what a mess their customers were in.
Early the next morning, Saturday, I called the office again. The person checked the records and was unable to find out why the delivery had not been made the day before. She also commented on what a disaster they had on their hands because of the snow and customers not plowing their driveways. She also said that she would make sure that we would get oil that day.
Later that morning, a truck did come and our tank was finally filled. Thus, the immediate crisis was over. Nevertheless, my faith in
Mechanicsburg Heating Oil Suppliers Provider Name Locked
, whom I have used for a decade or more, has been seriously shaken. I am now in the process of trying to find a web-based oil gauge which will allow me to monitor my oil level using my smart phone, something that previously was not necessary.
In summary, the primary responsibility of an oil company is to ensure that its customers do not run out of oil. This is particularly essential in an area such as Cape Cod in which so many homes are used primarily for vacations. The claim that they are "doing the best that they can" is not reasonable. They should have been in direct contact with their customers by phone to alert them that they were probably going to run out of oil, hiring telephone help from a temporary agency if necessary. They should also have devised methods to know in advance if specific customers had not plowed their driveways, either by telephone or by sending someone out in advance using a car. It makes no sense to use a large oil truck to see if driveways have been cleared.

should be able to do a lot better than this and I hope that this public rebuke inspires them to up their game.
