3 Advantages to COD Heating Oil
- No Surprise Bills
COD oil offers homeowners a considerable amount of flexibility when shopping around for a delivery. COD oil companies typically display up-to-date prices on their websites for new customers to see easily. Since oil prices change daily, it’s best to visit the sites regularly before placing an order. Most oil companies offer bulk pricing per gallon on orders as well, so the more you order, the more you can save. With clearly displayed prices, you can avoid any sticker shock when you get the bill.
- No Costly Long-Term Contracts
Full-service oil companies usually offer long-term contracts to their customers, including various services and other agreements. One of these agreements is the price per gallon for your oil, which is locked in when the contract is signed. If the price of the oil drops and you need a delivery, you are unfortunately locked into the higher rate and remain so for the life of the contract. Being able to shop around for lower prices can save you a significant amount of money. Since some COD oil companies offer incentives for new customers, savvy homeowners can save even more money by shopping around.
- As You Need It
Keeping an oil tank full can be expensive. Needing an emergency oil delivery in the middle of a January night is even more expensive. Homeowners who have had this unfortunate experience can certainly empathize. Some homeowners have even had to make the difficult decision of choosing to fill their oil tank or paying for other bills or even food. With COD oil, you can specify how much oil you want and when to get it. So if you have been able to budget for a small shipment, you can schedule this for when you have the funds. Getting several small shipments of 50 gallons is much more economical than getting a single 200-gallon delivery. You can also shop around for those small shipments, which can help you save even more money.
