Pre-Buy

Pre-buy Heating Oil Plan

Buy all your fuel before the heating season, we will store and deliver free

Each summer we offer a Fixed Price Protection Program. This program allows you to purchase next season’s oil in the summer. Your price will be locked in, and will not change, giving you the peace of mind that your delivery costs will not change throughout the coming winter.

We will help you determine at no cost to you, the amount of oil to purchase to last a given amount of time, taking into consideration your household’s usage. We will also store your fuel free and deliver it to you free. In fact, there are no additional fees once you have paid for your oil.

Please note that there are risks involved, in that, while you will benefit should prices rise, we cannot lower the price you paid for your supply should wholesale prices fall.

If you would like to put a ceiling on your price and purchase “downside protection” to cover you in the event that prices fall, click here.

Ceiling Cap Plan

As with our Ceiling Cap Plan, our Pre-buy Heating Oil Plan focuses on locking in the current cost of heating oil in the U.S. commodities market. You can benefit from this plan if you correctly buy low and commodity pricing rises higher while you have a stockpile of fuel at hand.

While the Ceiling Cap Plan allows you to lock in the price, and then pay for fuel deliveries at that price, our Pre-buy program offers you the opportunity to buy your supply at that price today!

This can be a great benefit to you, should you have the cash on hand, because the entire issue of buying fuel for the year can be settled and done in one day. Your monthly bill will of course be noticeably lower, because you will not be charged for fuel again until you go beyond the number of gallons you have purchased.

We will help you determine—free—the amount of oil to purchase to last a given amount of time, taking into consideration your household’s usage. We will also store your fuel free and deliver it to you free. In fact, there are no additional fees once you have paid for your oil.

Please note that there are risks involved, in that, while you will benefit should prices rise, we cannot lower the price you paid for your supply should wholesale prices fall.
