How to Prepare for Your Next Oil Delivery in Massachusetts

There’s no doubt about it, this spring has been unlike any before. Circumstances caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic have shifted every aspect of daily life. While we all adjust, there are still some things that must continue as usual, and one of them is heating your home. It has been a chilly spring in Massachusetts so far and with family members spending more time at home you are using more heating oil. Are you wondering how you can get safe fuel deliveries on the South Shore?

Ken Duval Oil is open as an essential business. We are following guidelines from the government and CDC to provide the necessity of home heating oil while protecting the health and wellbeing of our staff and customers. On top of our safety practices, there are a few things you can do to help make sure fuel deliveries go smoothly during these uncertain times.

How You Can Help Your Fuel Delivery Driver

There are several easy ways you can help our heating oil delivery team without making contact:

Clear a path to your heating oil fill pipe
Spring weather can make a mess of our lawns with leaves, branches, and other debris. Make sure there is a clear path to your oil fill pipe so that your heating fuel delivery driver can fill your tank easily and without interruption.

Open any gates or latches in the fill pipe path
If you have a fence or gate that obstructs the driver’s path to your fill pipe, it is a helpful gesture to unlatch the door so that your driver can pass through without having to touch the handle. Your delivery driver will wear protective gear, like a mask and gloves, while delivering fuel, but this is an extra step you can take to help out our team. It is much appreciated!

Keep a close eye on your fuel oil tank level
More time at home means using more heat to stay comfortable while the weather is still cold. Check your fuel oil tank gauge regularly so that you can order heating oil with plenty of time for delivery. We recommend that customers order heating oil when their tank gauge reads ¼ full. This allows us to process and deliver your order before you get too low. Running out of heating oil is more than just inconvenient, it can be very dangerous and cause damage to your heating system.
