Welcome to the Avon Oil Buying Club.
The Club was started in 2014 and with the aim of providing really competitive prices to anyone needing 500 litres of kerosene or more. In addition to members’ homes, we can supply Village Halls, Businesses and Churches.
We cover villages and rural areas surrounding Bath. Please see the map page in the index for more comprehensive coverage.
The way the system works is fairly straightforward. Twice a month we send you an email asking if you need oil. If you don’t need oil, just ignore the email and the subsequent reminders. If you need oil, submit the amount you need within the time specified and you will then receive an acknowledgement.
After the specified date, we negotiate with the oil companies and you then get an email saying by when the delivery will take place and at what price. You pay the supplier direct on receipt of invoice.
The supplier is selected based on the value offered including the service they provide to club members. We enjoy very good relationships with a number of local suppliers.
Please ensure when you register that you fill in as much detail as possible, especially the access to your tank as this dictates the size of tanker used by the suppliers.
As our membership grows so the savings will increase. The savings arise from the benefits suppliers generate from lower delivery and administration costs, while we benefit from lower prices and fewer tankers on our roads.
Please tell as many friends, neighbours and relatives about the scheme. The more who join the bigger the savings. If you have a local shop or Post Office which would like to display a box of cards, just let me know.
