All year long you take steps to keep yourself and your family safe in your Hudson Valley home. Winter brings its own set of safety concerns. We’ve already gotten some record-breaking snow this year, and more is sure to be on the way. Let’s review some of the important steps you can take to help the Valley Oil team deliver your heating oil safely all winter long.
Preparing for a delivery
Whenever there’s a winter storm, take the following steps for safety:
Make sure our delivery crew will have safe access to your property. Clear away any snow or ice that has accumulated on your walkway and driveway.
Make sure your fill pipe can be easily and safely accessed. Keep it free of snow and ice.
If you’re not one of our automatic delivery customers, keep a watchful eye on your fuel levels. Changes in the weather could cause your heating oil usage to change dramatically. Call Valley Oil for your next delivery before your tank is less than ¼ full. Don’t procrastinate. Demand is always higher during the winter months, and you don’t want to be at the end of a long line of deliveries when you’re running low of oil and could potentially run out. Being without heat on a cold day is a safety issue.
Better yet…why not take a few moments right now to become one of our automatic delivery customers. We use your previous usage to estimate your needs and schedule your deliveries so there’s no risk of your having a run-out. In addition to having peace of mind, you’ll be protecting your household against the discomfort and potential danger of a heatless house on a cold winter’s day.
