What is Oil 4 Less?
Oil 4 Less is a payment on delivery (POD) home heating oil delivery company. We specialize solely in oil delivery, allowing us to provide our customers the best prices for their fuel.
Why is the Oil 4 Less price lower than “full service” companies?
There are many factors that can go into the price per gallon of home heating oil, such as:
- Delivery costs
- Bad debt
- 24/7, on-call service department and technicians
- Everyday labor of office staff
Since Oil 4 Less is strictly a fuel oil delivery company and does not offer additional programs and services, we are able to eliminate or reduce many of the factors that go into our price per gallon. Therefore, Oil 4 Less is able to pass on that savings to our customers by offering a lower price than some competitors.
Why choose Oil 4 Less as your discount oil company?
Most one-truck companies do not carry insurance, whereas Oil 4 Less is fully insured. With Oil 4 Less, you also have the convenience of working with a locally owned and operated business, who is dedicated to providing prompt delivery and making sure you receive the lowest price possible!
Do you have a minimum amount of gallons you will deliver?
Yes, our minimum delivery is 125 gallons. If, by chance, you do not take the minimum amount, there is a short fee of $35 that will be charged at time of delivery. You can find the pricing breakdowns for amount of gallons delivered on our pricing page.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept cash on delivery, as well as Visa, MasterCard and Discover credit & debit cards.
Do you deliver to my area?
Please check our “service area” tab on our main page to see if your area is listed.
Do you deliver on weekends?
Unfortunately, we only deliver during our normal weekday business hours- Monday through Friday 8-4 PM, excluding holidays.
If the market rate for oil rises before I receive my delivery, will I be charged the higher price?
Your price will reflect the price per gallon market rate at the time that your order is placed, guaranteed.
When can I expect my delivery and do I need to be home?
Once you place your order, a delivery date will be given to you*. If payment is made while placing your order (via credit card), it is not necessary for someone to be home at the time of delivery. Just please make sure that we are informed of your approximate fill pipe location.
*Please note: delivery dates are subject to change due to inclement weather conditions and/or any other circumstances beyond our control. If something comes up and your delivery must be rescheduled, we will notify you immediately.
I’m out of oil! Can I order an emergency delivery?
Yes, you can – dependent on your area. Please contact the office directly at 610-398-8107 for this service (weekdays only).
Are there any extra fees that I may incur?
Typically, the only charge you will receive is for the oil that is being delivered. However, below is a list of any and all fees that may be incurred for any reason:
- Same-day delivery fee: $40.00-$90.00 (dependent on location, weekdays only)
- Short delivery fee: $35.00 (any deliveries where we are unable to deliver the minimum of 125 gallons)
- Attempted delivery fee: $25.00 (any deliveries where we travel to your home and are unable to make the delivery for any reason)
- Heating System Prime & Start: $55.00 (this service might be necessary if you have completely run out of oil in order to get the air out of the lines so that the burner can relight)
How do I avoid the “short delivery fee”?
Be sure to check your tank gauge and know the size of your tank before ordering. Most in-home fuel oil tanks are 275 gallon. Below is a chart to help you decide when is best to order:
|275 GALLON TANK||330 GALLON TANK|
|TANK GAUGE READING||GALLONS TO ORDER|
|1/8||200 GALLONS||250 GALLONS|
|1/4||175 GALLONS||225 GALLONS|
|3/8||150 GALLONS||175 GALLONS|
|1/2||125 GALLONS||150 GALLONS|
|ABOVE 1/2 TANK||SAVE MONEY AND WAIT TO ORDER!|
What if I don’t take the gallons I paid for and have a remaining credit?
Any remaining credit from gallons that we were unable to be delivered for any reason, will be applied to your oil account for a future delivery – no refunds will be issued.
