Many rural communities like ours have limited access to mains gas and with oil prices continuing to rise the price of heating oil is a huge cost for many households. Recent falls in the price of oil don’t alter the longer term trend.
Setting up a heating oil club could be a great way for our community to save money on our deliveries.
Working together saves us money:
The cost an oil supplier charges you depends on a number of factors. Whilst the most significant element of the cost is the price our supplier pays the refinery for the oil, they also take into account how much it costs them to deliver to us and the volume of the oil being delivered.
While we can’t affect the price of oil from the refinery by banding together with other households in the same delivery we can reduce the delivery costs for our supplier and often get a better deal for a bigger quantity than we would have managed on our own. By working together as a local community we can ensure we all benefit from the best prices.
Working together saves us time and hassle:
By working together as a club we can save time and hassle by not having to shop around. The club ensures that everyone gets the best price without spending hours on the phone.
The Oil Buying Club system is simple to use; members can process a complete order with just a click on their PC, tablet or smartphone.
Reassurance that we are getting the best price:
It’s difficult to compare prices from oil suppliers and being part of a club is a way to give re-assurance about the cost of heating oil. The club ensures its members get the best price possible. The benefits of buying as a group mean that club prices are usually well below those available to individual customers.
