NEW OIL TANKS AND REPOSITIONING
Do you sell new oil tanks?
Can you move my old oil tank?
We’ll pump the oil out of the tank, prepare your new oil tank base or use an existing one, refit the oil supply pipes and move it over. Once that is done, we can refill the oil tank and we’ll make sure your boiler and heating system is all up and running before we leave. It’s always best to speak to us first so we can give you the right advice.
What if my tank is full of oil but needs replacing?
Do you charge a call-out to come and give advice?
Help, my tank is leaking!
It can be very expensive and messy to mop up a big spill so it’s best to get it fixed straight away.
We also sell spills kits.
