Planned Delivery Service
With Butler Fuels, remembering to order your heating oil doesn’t have to be a hassle. Our planned delivery service is designed to provide you with a consistent and reliable supply of fuel. Whenever your tank is running low, we’ll automatically come and refill it – you don’t have to remember to call and place an order. To find out more, visit our planned delivery service page.
Manually Ordering Heating Oil
If you don’t choose our planned delivery service, you need to remember that when you use heating oil, it is not like being on a mains-connected service – with heating oil you need to remember to order your heating oil in plenty of time. Heating oil consumption varies according to your personal situation. For example, if you are not at home during the day and do not need to heat a large number of rooms, your consumption will be low. However, your requirements may be very different and we recommend you monitor your consumption and the level in the tank frequently. This is especially important during cold spells and around Christmas time when delivery lead times will be longer. You will need to order well in advance to ensure that you do not run out.
Obtaining a Quote from Butler Fuels is Simple. You Can:
On average a household will order heating oil 2-3 times a year, usually around Autumn and Winter. To help you to budget, we can offer you our easy payment plan. This allows you to pay via monthly Direct Debit, better managing the cost of your heating oil throughout the year, avoiding large lump sum bills. If you would like to pay by Direct Debit, please either call us on 0345 600 4040 or send us an enquiry form.
At Butler Fuels we always think “safety first”. We implement our procedures in the best interests of Health and Safety and to comply with legislation, but more importantly to fulfil our commitment to the protection of you and your home, our colleagues, the general public and the environment. Before making a delivery, our driver will assess the site and check that it is safe. If he determines it is not safe, he will let both you and our operations team know, so that we can see if we can provide help and advice on practical solutions that may make your tank more secure and allow future deliveries to take place safely. The kind of safety issues our driver would look out for will include:
- Safe access to the site
- Location and access to your tank
- The condition of the tank and associated equipment
- Other – any reason in this category will be stated on the paperwork you receive from our driver
