A well-prepared property ensures a seamless oil delivery experience, which means less stress for you. To guarantee a smooth, safe, and efficient oil delivery, there are several steps to take before the driver's arrival.
Here are four simple steps to follow:
- Verify Tank and Fill Pipe Locations. If you're familiar with fuel deliveries, you likely know your tank's location. However, if it's your first time or someone else usually handles this task, confirm the tank's position and fill pipe location. They may differ; for instance, an underground tank may have a fill pipe behind the house.
- Clear the Area Around Your Tank. Ensure the space surrounding your tank and fill pipe is free from obstructions the day before or the morning of your delivery. Common obstacles include shrubbery, personal property, and garbage. Clearing the area allows the delivery driver to access the fill pipe safely and efficiently.
- Keep Driveways and Sidewalks Unobstructed. Our oil delivery driver will need a clear path from the truck to your fill pipe, so ensure your driveway and sidewalk are free from slippery debris, parked cars, or garbage. A clear path will help facilitate a smooth and hassle-free delivery.
- Safely Contain Pets. On delivery day, keep pets away from the fill pipe to avoid accidents or escape attempts. If a gate or fence needs opening for the driver to access the fill pipe, inform the company beforehand. Drivers will close the gate upon completing the delivery.
