"Tanks a Lot arrived at the house at 11:35. They had called earlier and said they would be there between 11:30 and 11:45.First they had to empty a half full tank with oil and used a" small pump to do this. Had the oil tank out and fill pipe and vent pipe out in about 1 hr and 15 minutes . They mortared up holes in foundation where pipes ran and were done. Pulled tank up bulkhead stairs with a chain in front and another employee in back of tank pushing up. A small amount of oil was spilled when they cut the small line from tank to the old burner. There was a small piece sticking up and they did not realize there was oil still in it. They put a little sweet powder down which actually smells like bubble gum to
the smell of oil I would hire this company again. Punctual, professional, and quick

We had a delivery scheduled and were all ready and at home. The delivery driver called but I did not get to the phone in time to answer it (4 rings). Was outside on the front porch trying to get his attention but he was not facing the house and could not see us as he was on his phone. So when called back all we got was a busy signal. Then he left with us standing on the front porch phone in hand. I was not about to run down the street chasing an oil truck. I got through literally seconds later and they said it would be an extra fee. So I wanted to cancel and not reschedule and the owner or manager got on the phone and was rude and nasty. I don't know why the girl who answered the phone put that man on the line. But I would never use this company. There is no reason to yell at a customer who was just trying to cancel a delivery and explain why. I deal everyday with customer service issues - this was the worst I have ever seen but not surprising as I find a lot of the small contractors can be testy. You know if you are going to try to make a delivery A. you should not be parked at a different house facing away from the delivery house (we have a number on our porch that is clearly visible) and B. You should not treat customers like trash. Well we were testing out their services and they are awful. Would not use again as there are many other oil delivery companies around. The price was competitive, the delivery was I guess prompt as the guy did show up, but the customer service is horrendous. I would bet if there was any kind of problem, based on the guy who yelled at me for no reason, even if it was the business' fault, it would be pointless to talk to them. Look elsewhere you don't need to give your business to such an unprofessional company.

Company arrived on time and drained the tank. They then cut the tank, removed the filler and vent piping and cleaned out the tank. The tank was then cut into pieces and loaded onto their truck. There was no oil spilled anywhere and no smell. Everything was cleaned, and the outside was sealed. They had the necessary permits, and notified the inspector that the job was complete. The inspector approved all that was done and signed off on the permit. The entire work was completed in about two hours.

We allotted three days for the work. Most was done on day one. One of the blowers was defective and a replacement had to be ordered. No work on day two. It arrived so that the work was finished on day three about mid-day. They guys were very polite and cleaned up after themselves. All very professional.

I originally scheduled an appointment in mid-August for between 9 and 12 noon. At 11:45
Alexandria Heating Oil Suppliers Provider Name Locked
called to say the service tech was running late. At 1 pm
Alexandria Heating Oil Suppliers Provider Name Locked
called again. And so on, until 4pm when I finally called to cancel and reschedule. I requested a "first morning call" and was given the first available appointment, which was today, 9/11/2014 between 7 and 9 am. That's a wide range for a first call but that's how they do things. They day arrives and I'm ready for
Alexandria Heating Oil Suppliers Provider Name Locked
to arrive at 7 am. At 8:30 they called to say the technician was "jammed up". Okay, when will he get here?, I ask.
Alexandria Heating Oil Suppliers Provider Name Locked
couldn't say anything but that it shouldn't be later than noon. As I write this, it's now hours past the "first call of the morning" window. For the second time,
Alexandria Heating Oil Suppliers Provider Name Locked
failed to keep it's scheduled appointment. and I've missed two days in the office. I pay extra for this "full service" .
Alexandria Heating Oil Suppliers Provider Name Locked
doesn't just add a huge supplement to it's fuel charges for service, the service contract itself an extra $200. After seven years of good service, the last two years have been awful! Last winter I had a similar experience with an emergency service call.
Alexandria Heating Oil Suppliers Provider Name Locked
showed up hours late, well into the night, to restore heat. The service technician was cranky and tired but what can you do when it's freezing out and you've not got heat?

really knows how to exploit that situation. They used to be great, now they rate F.

With regard to price for delivery of home heating oil, they're ok - not the lowest, but not the highest. We signed up for the Fixed Rate plan where our price per
Alexandria Heating Oil Suppliers Provider Name Locked
was fixed for the first 600 gallons and then it went to a variable rate from there. They tack on an extra fee if you use this service which I believe was about $20. I spoke with a local competing company the other day and they don't offer a fee if you lock in to their Fixed Rate plan, so I'll be calling around this year and most likely won't be returning to
Alexandria Heating Oil Suppliers Provider Name Locked
for the several reasons. The $20 fee I could deal with, but the poor customer service is a deal-breaker for me.

1) Customer service is touch and go. When I've had a question regarding pricing or my bill or delivery, I call the Customer Service line and there has been only 1 person that I can remember who was actually very courteous and helpful. All of the other times I called, I ended up with a woman (all the reps I spoke with were women) who just clearly didn't want to be on the phone answering questions. They were not courteous or in any way friendly. They were
Alexandria Heating Oil Suppliers Provider Name Locked
with their answers. They just aren't pleasant to deal with and it got to the point where I just dreaded having to call them. 2) the young man (kid, really) that they sent out to perform the annual maintenance on the boiler was unprofessional. He was talking on the phone with a fellow employee and complaining about a customer that his fellow employee was in the middle of dealing with - the things that he was saying and in the presence of a customer were very rude and unprofessional. 3) He didn't replace the air filter or the thermostat on the hot water heater because he said the air filter looked more or less clean and even though the thermostat on the water heater wasn't working properly, it should be ok for another year. Both of those items were covered under our annual maintenance contract and looking back, I feel like I should have insisted that he leave an air filter because the on in the furnance will eventually need to be replaced and I should have insisted that he change out the thermostat. Our water runs terribly hot - scalding actually, even on the lowest possible setting of the thermostat, but I didn't question the young man's decision which, looking back, I should have. I guess they're trained to save money at all costs even when customer has already paid for a service contract. 4) I had agreed the first year to have an additive added to my oil tank to keep the sludge at bay, but I didn't know that they were going to automatically add this to the tank every year without notifying me first. Luckily, I caught it just in time because they had added it to my bill prior to actually performing the service which is usually done in the summer. I called and told them that I didn't request or sign up for, in any way, a second year of oil tank additive. The way they do this comes across as sneaky. They hope they can get it past you by adding it to the bill and it's not a ton of money - I think it's about $40 or $50, so they're probably hoping you won't notice, but it should be my choice to request this service every year or every other year or whenever. I don't like them trying to sneak it in.
So long,
Alexandria Heating Oil Suppliers Provider Name Locked
. I'm not going to miss you this season.
