Prompt LPG Delivery And Supply To Keep Your Fireplace Burning
Posted by ThompsonGas on August 25th, 2015
To make sure you never run out of gas supply at home, you need a prompt and reliable propane distributor that can provide you with consistent service and automatic deliveries. With every other propane ad saying exactly the same thing about service providers and propane marketers, finding a good supplier who will give you the best value for your money can be especially challenging. Most of the time, consumers use price-per-gallon as a yardstick when comparing companies, however, this doesn't provide a complete picture of the service and prices only differ by a few pennies from one company to the next. When you intend to start a long-term relationship with a local propane dealer and marketer, here are some important things you should consider other than pricing:
- Choose a company that offers automatic delivery. To make sure that you have a constant supply of LPG at home, choose a marketer that can provide you with a flexible delivery schedule where you can expect regular arrival of your supply at a particular date and time. Just the same, choose a company that can deliver propane on an as needed basis so you never run out.
- Ask about tank rental. Any gas company worth its salt will want to provide consumers with the best service they can offer. They invest in new equipment and their maintenance, which they often charge through service and rental fees. Compare prices between local providers and choose a company that charges the correct rental costs and service fees. Charging tank rent is only common among gas companies, but you don't have to pay too large a premium to get the service and the quality product you deserve.
- Think about your usage requirements. Ask whether they have minimum usage requirements. One way that gas services cover their cost of service requires consumers to purchase a certain amount of supply or to pay a small fee per gallon. Minimum usage requirements also work to the consumers' advantage because they ensure good service and proper upkeep and maintenance of tanks and other service and delivery equipment.
- Ask about your payment options. Some companies will require you to apply for a credit account to set up service while others operate on a cash-on-delivery basis. Depending on your preference, choose a company that can provide you with payment options that you will be comfortable with.
