Oil Tank Replacement and Inspections Services by Suffolk oil Solutions

Oil Tank disposals and annual Servicing

Oil tank collection and disposal

If you are moving over to another source of heating, you may need your old oil tank removing.  We have a Waste Carriers licence to remove and transport your tank and safely dispose of it and any contents.  Please contact us for a estimate here. We will need the following information:

Is the tank metal or plastic?

Approx. size of tank?

Is there any oil in the tank?

If so, roughly how much oil is there?

Can a vehicle be parked next to it to crane it on? (sometimes this is over a fence or wall)

Please provide as many photos as possible to show:

  1. Current tank
  2. Tank location – please stand back to show the tank surroundings.
  3. Any gates or walls that restrict access
  4.  Anything else you think would be useful to know.

Oil Tanks need servicing too!

An annual inspection is recommended. Some insurance companies request this as part of the policy requirements.

If you have an older, metal oil tank it probably needs replacing. Even if you check and paint your tank every year you won’t know if there’s a problem until its too late and it begins to leak. Condensation can cause steel oil tanks to corrode from the inside taking you completely by surprise.

Please contact Suffolk Oil Solutions to arrange a service, a FREE no obligation quote or for advice about your tank. You can also buy oil tanks on-line from our sister company website if you are prepared to install a new oil tank yourself.
