Our informative how-to guides and educational resources are designed to help our customers stay informed on all of our services.


How does automatic delivery work?
We provide automatic delivery service, so you don't have to call to schedule a delivery. Our system uses the latest computer model, that predicts when you need oil and will send someone out automatically whenever our records indicate that you may require a delivery and deliver it, right on time!

Is there anything I need to do to make sure that automatic delivery remains on schedule?
All you need to do is ensure that we have access to your delivery area. During the winter months, we ask that you clear your delivery area of any snow, so that we can maintain your delivery schedule without interruption when you're not at home.

I’m an automatic delivery customer. My fuel hasn’t been delivered yet and there’s no delivery date scheduled in My Account.
The automatic delivery date is an estimate. Rest assured that we know when you require a delivery.
