Case Studies of a Propane Switches To R.F. Ohl
Propane Switch in Effort PA
Janet F. was using another local propane company for her home located in Effort, Pennsylvania. Janet was charged an annual fee of $79 per tank. This fee was itemized as an “EPA Leak Certification”, the crazy thing is that the there is no such certification with the Environmental Protection Agency.
Janet had 2 propane tanks on her property. One was an above ground tank owned by the other propane company and the second was an in-ground tank owned by Janet. Even though Janet owned the second tank, she was being charged an annual tank fee for BOTH tanks.
During her time with the other propane company, Janet ran out of propane several times. Unfortunately, it took the other company 2 days to show up for her refill.
When Janet decided to make the switch to R.F. Ohl, she has never run out of propane and she has never been charged any rental fees or hidden fees! The other company took over 4 months to remove their tank from her property. We helped her through the process of getting the old tank removed.
Effort PA: Propane Company Change
Ed B. lives in the town of Effort, PA. Ed was paying a higher price per gallon for propane from his prior propane delivery company. When Ed switched over to R.F. Ohl, he instantly saved over $2.00 per gallon!
Ed’s prior company did not charge any extra or hidden fees, however they had horrible customer service over the phone. When Ed called his prior supplier, threatening to change propane companies, they basically told him to “do what you got to do”.
During the time Ed was with his prior supplier, he ran out of propane on numerous occasions. In each case, it took days to get propane delivered. Ed and his wife are an elderly couple with no other source of heat.
When Ed made the switch, it took the other propane gas company over 8 months to pick up their propane tank from Ed’s house.
Propane Tank Removal
In both case studies above, we helped to facilitate the removal of the prior company’s tanks. As a curtesy for new customers, we notify the prior propane company that they need to pick up their propane tank. Many times, companies that loose a propane delivery customer “hassle” the customer when the customer calls to do this. We eliminate this hassle by doing it for you at no extra cost! Unfortunately we cannot actually remove their tank since it is the property of the prior company. However, we will continue to make calls on your behalf to get the tank removed.
Switching To A New Propane Delivery Company
Q: How Hard is it to Change Propane Suppliers?
A: R.F. Ohl makes it very easy to switch with no charge for change out services.
Q: Can I Switch Propane Companies?
A: Whether you have a company’s tank or your own tank, R.F. Ohl will offer you solutions for your propane needs.
Q: Will My Existing Propane Company Give Me A Hard Time With Making The Switch?
A: We would like to think that other propane dealers operate with the same integrity and level of customer service as R.F. Ohl. However, we have heard stories of other companies filling a customer’s tank prior to their switch. They do this in order to complicate the transition. We will change out a customer’s tank at no charge and inform the previous propane company about picking up the customers propane tank. We provide hassle-free propane service.
Q: How Quickly Do You Deliver?
A: Within 2-3 days of placing your order. If you are on one of our automatic deliver plans, you never have to worry about running out of propane. We will always refill your tank prior to you running out.
Q: Do I Pay Tank rental Fees Or Delivery Fees?
A: No! With R.F. Ohl, there are no extra fees, period.
Q: Do You Have A Budget Program?
A: Yes, click here to learn more about our EZ Comfort Plan.
Q: Are You Competitive?
A: Yes, R.F. Ohl’s propane pricing is extremely competitive.
Q: Can I Buy My Tank?
A: Yes, you can buy your own propane tanks. As with most choices in life, there are pros and cons to doing this. For the positives, you save a few cents per gallon. You can shop around for a propane supplier but if you own your own tank, we do recommend sticking with a “permanent” supplier, due to the fact that if propane supply gets “tight” (put on allocation) as can happen in winters that have high demand, the first people to get “shut off” from delivery are the “customer owned” tanks that are not regular customers.
The disadvantages of owning your own propane tank are that you are responsible for the maintenance of the tank and the liability of the tank. We recommend that you inform your homeowners insurance company about the purchase of the tank to make sure they will cover you. Some insurance companies will not cover a customer owned propane tank. Another issue with owning your own propane tank is that propane companies do not have to deliver to you, since you own the tank. Additionally, you will want to make sure that the tank is an ASME tank and not a DOT tank. DOT tanks will need to be inspected every 5 years by a certified propane tank inspector.
