Is oil tank rental for your Statesville home the right option? Ask us for more information!
Here at Bumgarner Oil, we often get asked whether it is best to purchase an oil tank or go with oil tank rental instead. The answer is that it depends on your plans and situation, but we’re always happy to provide our recommendation based on what is best for you. There are a few things to consider, such as whether you desire an above-ground or underground storage tank, what size you need, and what you have planned for the future.
It is not uncommon for people to opt for oil tank rental when they are new to using home heating oil or kerosene and are unsure how much will be needed each year. It is easier to change tank size when it is an oil tank rental than it is when you’ve purchased the tank. It is easy enough to discontinue the rental in a year or two when you have it all figured out and can then purchase the proper size for your needs.
Oil tank rental is also a good option if you don’t plan to be in your home for long and do not want the hassle of getting the new owners to buy your tank or relocate it to a new property. They can just take over the oil tank rental and pay you for whatever heating oil is still in the tank. You can call for a new tank for your new home and start fresh. It is also nice to not worry about the maintenance of the tank or replacing it should a problem develop.
