How to Prep for a Fuel Delivery


As the homeowner, you may know your way around hazards or obstructions along the path between the entryway to your property and the area that needs service. A visiting fuel delivery person could easily stumble on these pitfalls, unaware of their presence. As a homeowner, you are responsible for the safety of your guests, including the service people who refill your tank.


Prepare Your Property for Fuel Delivery


On the day of a scheduled fuel delivery service, you will need to have cleared the surrounding area and path that leads to the tank. The entire area must be safe and accessible for the heating oil delivery person. Depending on the location of your oil or propane tank, you will need to have the following parts of your property clear of hazards and obstructions.


  • Driveway
  • Lawn
  • Backyard
  • Basement
