Understanding FREE Auto Delivery: Five Questions Answered
Posted: March 1, 2017

Fuel delivery

No one wants to deal with the hassle of managing their heating oil supply – or with the consequences of running out of oil during a winter storm (as some of our customers learned recently).

Luckily, there’s a FREE service from Fredericks Fuel that helps you avoid these problems while taking many of the hassles out of heating your home: Auto Delivery. If you don’t know about Automatic Delivery, here are a few questions to get you familiar with this convenient service. If you have more, feel free to contact us!

  1. How does FREE Automatic Delivery work?
    It’s simple: our computers calculate how much fuel you’re likely to use based on your past bills and the current weather (if you’re a new customer, we’ll estimate your fuel use based on neighborhood averages for a home your size).
  2. When do I get my heating oil delivery?
    We usually deliver your oil when your tank is about one-quarter full.
  3. What’s the difference between FREE Automatic Delivery and Will Call?
    With Will Call delivery, you have to track your heating oil levels and schedule all your deliveries. You may also have to wait for a refueling, since trucks are scheduled as needed (if you have a heating oil run-out emergency, we can probably help, but you’ll be charged for it). With Auto Delivery, you’ll never have to think about your fuel levels or worry about run-outs again.
  4. This sounds too good to be true…why is Automatic Delivery FREE?
    Automatic Delivery is free because it helps us to schedule our deliveries efficiently so we can serve all our customers and avoid having to send crews out to deal with emergency run-outs. Both of us benefit, which is why we offer the service at no charge.
  5. How will I benefit from FREE Automatic Delivery?
    • No more managing your heating oil – Never check your fuel gauge or worry about remembering to call for an appointment again
    • No more waiting for delivery – We’ll just show up and refill your tank
    • No more run-outs – You’ll be prepared for any storm or cold spell, so you’ll never have to worry about run-outs or their consequences – like the expense of having your burner restarted or dealing with a frozen water pipe burst.
