    I received 2 quotes for the entire package to remove my above ground 275 gal oil tank, install a new above ground oil tank and abandon my old 550 gal buried oil tank.  I chose C2G because they were the most responsive and they provided many options for the new tank.  After finalizing everything with the office (this took several rounds of questions and answers, all of which went smoothly), I signed the contract.  Scheduling took a little while and I had to phone the office again to find out the service date.  There was a little confusion on their part as to whether someone had contacted me with the date or not.  Nonetheless, I had a date and the crew showed up promptly on that date.  Jimmy's crew was terrific.  They quickly and efficiently transferred the oil from my above ground tank into barrels, uninstalled the above ground tank and cut it into pieces.  They installed my new 400 gal Roth tank, which looks terrific because it will not rust like my 275 above ground tank did, and pumped the oil from the barrels back into my new tank.  They then hand dug down to the in-ground tank and cut out a circle in the top, enough room for 1 man to fit through.  They had previously explained to me the process for the abandonment.  A crew member, completely garbed in protective suit, gloves and respirator, climbs down into the tank.  He buckets out all the remaining sludge and inspects the interior of the tank to ensure it has not split and leaked out into the surrounding soil.  If your tank has leaked, then you must dig up the tank, remove it as well as all contaminated soil.  That can potentially  cost a bundle so you're pretty nervous about that inspection.  My tank had not split and leaked so, once all the sludge was bucketed out, the crew filled the tank with sand.  That wrapped up the work.  The only problem I had was that it rained like mad the very next day and the man-size hand dug hole to the in-ground tank sunk about 3 feet.  I notified C2G and they made 2 additional, separate trips to re-fill the sink hole.   They were very diligent in getting back to me and ensuring the sink hole was taken care of.  I was very impressed they did that.  It says a lot about their professionalism and dedication to their customers.  I love my new tank, it is much larger than my old one so I can take advantage of oil pricing by my ability to purchase larger quantities of oil.  It will never rust and it looks pretty good as well.  I am so relieved to have my old in-ground tank properly and officially abandoned and I have a Certificate of Abandonment from C2G who is qualified to issue such a certificate.  This will mean quite a bit in the future if and when I sell my home.  I highly recommend C2G to everyone!

    Work started in March of 2010 with the removal of existing driveway and old front walkway. Primary grading began with several loads of RCA spread out. After many calls, they finally came back at the end of June. Final grading began and they realized the whole driveway was too high so they removed all of the RCA they put down.  Now I was back to the existing crushed stone that was under the old driveway. After grading was completed, I noticed many areas that were soft under foot when I walked on it and told them about it.  The foreman said not to worry about that, it would be ok once the asphalt went down (first red flag). Belgium block edging went in and these guys were very good at what they did. Front walkway was layed out with paver edge and paver strips every 8 feet. Very nice job again. From research that I have done prior to the job, it is well understood in the industry that there can be no organic material under the driveway otherwise there will be problems with things growing up through the asphalt, such as mushrooms and cracking due to ground movement.  Basically, that's what the supposed 6 inches of RCA is supposed to take care of. Asphalt must be laid on 'dead' ground. They told me that even though they removed all the RCA they put down, what was under there originally was fine for the job (another red flag). Asphalt went down and the job was completed. It looked wonderful...for about 4 weeks.  The hairline cracks started. I called them back and they said it was from tree roots. They said when it gets sealcoated next year it would be fine. Next year came and it was cracking all over the place so when they came to sealcoat it they filled the cracks and assured me all would be fine, again blaming it on tree roots. I said what about these areas where there are no trees and they said there are roots everywhere under ground. The majority of the cracking was where I told them the ground  was soft underfoot before they even laid the asphalt. I have cracking on the walkway where there aren't any trees or car traffic. I have mushrooms popping up all over the place and dips in certain areas as if the ground has settled. Here it is, 4.5 years later, and now the cracks are opening up to as much as a half inch. I called them back but again they tell me it's from tree roots, even though there are no trees near the majority of the cracks. I was told Paul (an owner)would come out and look at it but of course nobody ever comes and my phone calls go unreturned.  So, 4.5 years later and $10,000 out of pocket I have a driveway and walkway full of cracks ranging in size from 1/16 of an inch to 1/2 inch in width. Of course now the wider cracks have crumbling edges which is just the beginning of what is to come.  In all fairness, the laborers were all truly good craftsman but the lack of a proper underlayment is the cause of all my problems.  I'll never understand why a business with a long history on Long Island would cheap out on their jobs by not doing the proper prep work. Now that 4 1/2 years have past, I can honestly say that the 25 year old driveway that was replaced was in better shape than my current driveway. The old one had the aggregate showing and broken edges due to no edging and was showing signs of wear but there were very few cracks. If the job was truly done with 6 inches of RCA as was contracted, and 2 inches of asphalt, there would be no problems. Of course, they tell me different.
