do I join? Please
download the enrollment (see link above). If unable to print it out,
your name and mailing address to us and give us time to get the
packets out to you, we are busy!
New members will be assigned a supplier based on information
provided on the enrollment and availability within the geographic areas of
suppliers we contract with.
New Members will be notified via postcard or email of their
propane tanks belong to my current supplier. Can I still join and
get fuel ? Yes!
You will need to arrange with our current Supplier as soon as possible to
have their tanks set. After their tanks are in place and they have
performed the State required Safety test (a nominal fee will be charged)
you can contact your former supplier for removal of tanks. Please note
some companies may charge for removal of their tanks and if you pay for
your propane prior to use, they should credit you back for the remainder
in the tank. It is very important to contact the current Supplier to
get on their schedule for tank installation. If you wait too long,
their schedule may be booked. Please be sure to take into account all the
associated fees with tank swapping.
I add my relatives to my membership? The
rule of thumb is this: Each property you wish covered needs its own
membership. Also note that members who use more than 5000 gallons of any
one fuel must have prior permission from the supplier to reserve fuels
you take credit cards?
no longer accept credit cards for the membership fee. We are sorry for any
inconvenience. We do accept checks and money orders.
I have to pre-buy? Our
fixed price programs are usually pay as you go. Credit terms are set
at the discretion of the supplier. Budget programs are available.
If you choose to pre-pay for your fuel, the Supplier is very good
about accommodating you. You must however, maintain the credit terms
established by the supplier to maintain your fixed pricing..
much fuel should I reserve? This
is always a delicate question. You are signing a contract to buy a certain
number of gallons of your choosing over a set period of time. If you
end up using more than you reserve, you will pay the going retail rate for
the fuel at the time of delivery. If you over estimate and use much
less than you reserved, then someone else missed out on the opportunity to
participate in a fixed price program. There are always circumstances
beyond your control which can affect your actual usage. Here’s our rule
of thumb. Take your usage for last year and pad it by 10 %.
That has worked very well for our members.
about service? We
always contract with a Supplier who has the resources to provide service
on a 24 hr basis. You are not obligated to receive your
service from this Supplier.
