Help Us Keep Your Heating Oil Deliveries Coming This Winter
Date posted: January 14, 2019
At some point in the coming winter months, conditions will challenge our fleet drivers and technicians to provide the safe, on-time heating oil deliveries you have come to expect and rely upon from Rucci Oil. When that time comes, we need your help to ensure that as many people as possible can get their fuel when they need it most.
Here are three ways you can help us if we are experiencing winter weather conditions the day of your heating oil delivery, or in the days leading up to it:
- Keep a clear path to your fill pipe – If it snows, please try to keep a clear, ice-free path to your fill pipe so our technicians can access it quickly and safely.
- Shovel and salt your driveway – One of the biggest obstacles to getting your fuel delivered is navigating our trucks on steep or slippery driveways. Safety codes prohibit us from parking a fuel truck on an incline unless wheel chocks (the wedges we put under the tires so the truck doesn’t roll back) can be applied safely, so please clear your driveway of snow and ice before our crew arrives.
- Order fuel ahead of time – When fuel is in high demand, our delivery crews get quite busy serving customers, so it is harder for us to quickly respond to urgent delivery requests. Please call when your heating oil tank is no less than a quarter full – or avoid the hassle of calling altogether by signing up for automatic heating oil delivery from Rucci Oil.
For reliable heating oil deliveries and heating oil service anywhere in our New Jersey and Staten Island service area, no one beats Rucci Oil. Contact us today to order fuel or to join the Rucci family of customers!
