Historically, Pre-Buy is the most ideal option for your winter fuel needs. Pre-Buy is offered only in the Summer, typically the month of June. When our Pre-Buy prices are available, you will let us know how many gallons you would like to purchase. For example, if you buy 1000 gallons and the price is $1.00 per gallon, you will pay $1000.00 plus sales tax; this is for your winter fuel needs ONLY. When you Pre-Buy, you are protecting yourself from the spikes in the market, but not the lows. Prices will vary from year to year, so the best thing to do is call our office at 419-526-4271 for complete information and pricing.
To avoid having to pay for a delivery in full when it is made, you may take advantage of our budget program. To figure a monthly budget, we use your previous years’ usage. If you are a new customer, you will need to provide us with your usage. Budget payments are due the 10th of the month, beginning in June. Typically, most budget accounts are 9 to 11 months. Any balance left at the end of the season must be paid in full before you can start the next years budget. Every account is monitored throughout the season. Your budget may be adjusted due to prices or usage. We will notify you by US Mail, e-mail or phone, of any changes that need to be made.
Credit Terms or Pay in Advance
Should you choose not to take advantage of either program described above, you will pay for your deliveries according to the terms that we have extended to you. If we have extended 30-day terms to you, you will have 30-days from the day of delivery to have that bill paid in full. If your account is on a “Pay in Advance” basis, you must watch the gauge, call us when it is between 20%-30%, and we will give you a dollar amount that must be paid in full before a delivery will be scheduled. If your account is on a “Will Call” basis, as the customer, you are solely responsible for checking the gauge on the tank to avoid an out-of-gas situation. Any out-of-gas calls REQUIRE a System Check due to federal regulations and applicable fees will apply.
