To make sure that everyone – including your family and your neighbors – has a chance to get their heating oil when they need it most, please try to remember to do these three things as we enter the winter season here in Central Massachusetts:
Keep a path to your fill pipe clear – Please remove snow, ice, and fallen branches that might be blocking the route to your heating oil fill pipe so our delivery team can do its job safely. Try to keep at least a one-foot-wide path clear.
Clear your driveway – We’re not allowed to deliver your fuel if it’s not safe to do so (it’s not our call; it’s the law). If your driveway is covered with snow or ice, please clear and sand or salt it. Remember, our delivery vehicles are wider than your car: we need a 9-foot to 10-foot-wide clear path in your driveway to allow enough room to maneuver. It also helps if you mark the borders of your driveway if the snow has covered them.
Don’t wait for the last minute – It’s best to place your heating oil delivery order before your fuel level reaches the one-quarter mark in your tank, especially if temperatures are low or forecast to drop; doing this will give us enough notice to schedule a delivery for you.
