If you have recently moved home and are new to heating oil, our friendly team are on hand to help you place your order and answer any queries you may have. We have also put together some useful advice below to help get you started.
Prices for heating oil can fluctuate quite dramatically over time due to weather, demand and global production increasing or decreasing. Our team will be able to give you a quotation for your heating oil over the phone or you can get an online quote here. When getting a heating oil price, you should always be given the pence per litre price and the total price including VAT. If you choose to use an online broker to purchase your heating oil rather than going direct to a local fuel distributor, you may have to pay an extra services charge, this can sometimes be hidden in the order process, so make sure you thoroughly check any online quotation.
Below is an example of what our online heating oil quotation looks like:

Goods Value of Product 500 x 52.30p = £261.50

TOTAL PRICE £274.58 (INC. VAT)
The majority of domestic boilers off the main gas grid use kerosene, commonly referred to as heating oil, but if you are unsure what type of heating oil your oil-fired boiler or range cooker uses our team will be able to help advise you.
The minimum quantity which can be ordered is 500 litres. However, by ordering a larger quantity you can benefit from a lower price per litre. If you are unsure how much heating oil your tank can hold, the capacity is usually embossed on the side of the tank. If you have a tank gauge, it will be able to tell you how much oil is already in your tank. If you do not have a tank gauge, we highly recommend the Kingspan Watchman radar.

We require payment before delivery, which can be made over the phone or via our website when ordering online. We also offer a savers plan which is designed to help you budget the cost of your heating oil. Please let us know if this is something you would like to discuss.
Deliveries are made between Monday and Friday, excluding bank holidays. During busier periods, we may also offer the option for delivery on a Saturday monring. If your tank is accessible, you do not need to be at the propety to receive your delivery. When placing your order, please advise our sales team of any possible access restrictions that may impact the delivery such as a locked tank, a tank located in a locked location or if you require a smaller wagon.
Our Kingspan Watchman Radar monitoring system is the easiest and simplest way to manage your heating oil needs. It offers you complete peace of mind that you will never run out of heating oil and the monitor is fitted by a trained engineer.
