Payment Options – Heating Oil Plans
All of our heating oil plans are easy to enroll. Choose from one of our plans below, combine them, or speak to a Heating Oil expert at Van Doren Oil to determine what option is best for you.
Heating Oil Budget Plan
We help you lower your winter fuel bills.
It’s an unfortunate fact that 80% of your fuel bill costs come in just four or five months of winter. Why not spread those payments out over 12 months with our Budget Plan? Instead of paying $450, $500, or even $600 for winter deliveries, you’ll be able to virtually cut those payments in half.
This is how it works. We review your fuel use over the past few winters and calculate a monthly payment amount. Then you make 11 equal, predictable payments, which means no unexpectedly high heating bills.
You don’t pay any more for your oil, and you don’t use any more gallons. You pay only for what you actually receive. You can relax knowing that your payment amount will stay the same each month, with just minor adjustments for usage or price changes.
For further peace of mind, we combine the Budget Plan with our free automatic heating oil delivery service so you never have to worry about running out of fuel. Many customers combine their budget with our Price Cap Plan. This will reduce the monthly payment because we will know the capped price per gallon.
Heating Oil Price Cap Plan
Protect yourself from rising prices this year.
As you know, the price of heating oil fluctuates on a daily basis because of supply and demand, market speculation, weather, geopolitical conflicts and other influences beyond our control. This is reflected in the prices we charge our customers upon delivery.
What you may not know, however, is that we offer you a way to put a ceiling, or cap, on your heating oil. This could save you money on fuel during the winter. We call this price protection.
If oil prices skyrocket, your price will never go above the cap. But if prices fall for a sustained period, so will yours. When our daily rate stays below the cap, we will charge you the lower amount.
Please note that our suppliers charge us a premium for this type of price protection. So if you choose the price cap option, a per-gallon cap fee will be due when you sign your contract.
Heating Oil Pre-Buy Plan
Buy all of your fuel before the heating season and we will store and deliver it for free.
Each summer we offer a Fixed Price Protection Program. This program is called Pre-Buy and it allows you to purchase next season’s oil in the summer. Your price will be locked in and will not change. This gives you the peace of mind that your delivery costs will not change throughout the coming winter. It’s a great way to budget yourself!
One of our customer service reps will be happy to help you determine the amount of oil to purchase. They will research your history and take into consideration your household’s usage. We will also store your fuel at no charge and deliver it to you free. In fact, there are no additional fees once you have paid for your oil.
