Are You Prepared for a Heating Fuel Delivery?

How You Can Help Our Drivers Stay on Schedule

While our team works hard to provide the most reliable heating fuel delivery in the area, they can always use a helping hand.

What You Can Do to Help

Ice and snow can turn an already tough job into a potentially hazardous one. Maneuvering with a heavy hose while navigating slippery surfaces can be challenging—sometimes our drivers lose their footing and sustain injuries. You can help our drivers stay safe by keeping the path to your oil or propane tank clear and removing any nearby obstacles such as fallen branches.

We also need you to shovel or plow your driveway and keep it free of ice. Safety codes prohibit us from parking our delivery truck on an incline unless it is perfectly dry and wheel chocks can be applied safely. Keep this in mind: just because you can get your car down your driveway doesn’t mean our heavy fuel truck can make it too.

Obviously, our fuel trucks are much wider than your car. That’s why 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 when the snow has covered them.

Preventing Run-outs

Most of our heating oil and propane customers take advantage of our free automatic delivery service. This is a proven method that allows us to manage your fuel supply.

Our computer system tracks how much fuel your home will typically use based on how cold it is outside and your fuel usage history. We will deliver fuel automatically to you, usually when your oil tank gets to be one-quarter full (or 30% for propane tanks). The result: minimal chance of a run-out, no more calling for a delivery and no more monitoring your fuel levels on your own.

So, instead of having to call us every time you need more oil or propane, you don’t have to do anything! Our driver will simply come to your home and fill your tank based on the schedule we have built for you.

There is no need to schedule and wait for deliveries, and you’ll avoid the expense and hassle of having your system tested and primed for restart—something that is required after a run-out. Please note that automatic delivery does not include burner service, additives or treatments.

However, when you’re a Broco Energy automatic delivery customer, your price per gallon is better, and you won’t see any extra charges. You’ll be billed automatically too, on your credit card, using a debit card or by ACH. It can’t get any easier than that!
