Home heating oil deliveries in Sullivan, Orange and Ulster Counties, NY
Having Black Bear Fuel Oil as your heating oil provider means you get prompt, effective deliveries.
Black Bear offers convenient automatic delivery service that will keep you in worry-free comfort all winter long. We use our scientific degree-day system to accurately calculate your home’s usage of heating oil or kerosene. With that information, we deliver your fuel to your home on an as-needed basis.
This means you’ll get rid of the stress of watching your tank gauge, wondering if your current supply will last through a coming cold snap or if you should call in another order.
Automatic deliveries also prevent costly problems that can happen when you run out of heating fuel, such as frozen pipes, boiler problems, and additional restart costs and delivery fees.
Calling for your fuel
With our large fleet of trucks, we can get fuel to you when others can’t — faster and more reliably. So if you prefer to call us with your order, that’s fine. Just remember a few important points.
Please be aware that there is a gap between the time you place your order and the time we can actually deliver it. This is necessary because a “will-call” delivery has to be fit into our carefully scheduled routes.
Not being part of our automatic delivery program means that you have to take full responsibility for monitoring your tank level at regular intervals. You are also at greater risk for a run-out. TIP: When the fuel level in your oil tank reaches the one-quarter mark, you should call for more.
Oil payment plans, price protection and service agreements
As a fuel oil provider, we bring you a number of convenient and money-saving programs to take some of the worry out of heating your home:
- Black Bear Fuel Oil’s EZ Pay payment plan. It divides your annual fuel costs into 11 equal monthly payments.
- EZ Pay includes a price cap. That means that, no matter what happens in the oil markets, your fuel price will never go above the established cap.
- You can save money on repairs by enrolling in one of our heating oil service agreements.
Tips for safe deliveries
No matter the season, it’s always important to keep your oil tank and fill pipe unobstructed. Please make sure that leaves or other debris don’t block or obscure the fill pipe area or your driveway.
After a snowfall, please clear a path (about 12 inches wide) to your tank. We also need you to clear your driveway. Our fuel trucks require a 9- to 10-foot-wide clear path in your driveway to allow enough room for maneuvering. Safety codes prevent us from making a delivery if a driveway is not clear.
