The price of heating oil can fluctuate throughout the year based on the season/weather but also the global factors which determine what price our suppliers buy the oil at. Due to this fluctuation, we do not offer a fixed price per litre for your annual oil supply. Instead, we will always compare the range of oil companies in your area when an order is required to find you the cheapest rate available. This would be achieved by placing all your orders when you have approximately 1 month's worth of oil left and placing them on the standard delivery, 10 working day option at the buying weekend period which would enable you to take advantage of any potential group savings that may be available.
The Connected plan is based on the price on today's price per litre, but also includes a buffer amount per litre to account for any potential price fluctuations that may occur over the 12 month period. The Connected plan orders would always be placed at the cheapest rate we can obtain. Any funds paid in and note used towards your oil orders would be left over for future orders but can also be refunded back to you at a later date if required.
The advantages of the Connected service is a fully monitored and managed oil supply for you, a free BoilerJuice monitor which would provide us with your oil level reading, the security of knowing your oil level is being monitored daily at no inconvenience to you, and an assurance that you would not require to pay higher rates for express deliveries or risk running out of oil. All provided with the fixed monthly payments to spread the annual cost of oil in a budget-friendly way.
