"I’ve been a Stafford customer since 1988. They’re an incredible company. They are always there when we need them—whether it’s for emergency service, or routine service, or the installation of new equipment. We use them for all of our heating and air conditioning needs. I’m especially pleased with the work done on my air conditioning system over the past few years, including the installation of my air conditioning condenser this past spring."

Automatic Delivery Will Make Your Winter Worry-Free


September 21, 2022

Are you prepared for this winter? You have likely noticed that temperatures have begun to drop, which means you will be turning on your heating system before you know it. If you haven’t put a fuel delivery plan in place for this winter, there isn’t a better time to do so than right now! For over 90 years, Stafford Oil & Propane has been a reliable supplier of both heating oil and propane for the residents of Belknap County and the surrounding areas. We provide quality fuel at affordable prices, and our goal is to keep you and your family warm and comfortable all winter long!

Why Automatic Delivery Is the Right Choice for You

Stafford is proud to provide automatic delivery for our customers, which is both reliable and convenient. When you sign up for automatic delivery, you are receiving a service that makes your life easier. You will no longer have to worry about running out of fuel. There will no longer be a need for you to regularly check your fuel levels. You will not have to take the time out of your day to schedule your next fuel delivery over the phone or online. Plus, with automatic delivery, you will not have to wait around at home for one of our drivers to arrive.

You are eligible to sign up for automatic delivery if:

  • You have established 30-day payment terms with us.
  • You pay for your delivery when you receive it, and you have authorized us to charge your credit card to pay for your deliveries when you receive them.
  • You are a Prebuy customer placed on automatic delivery based on the terms and conditions of our Prebuy program.

How Automatic Delivery Works

After you have signed up for automatic delivery, we will review your past fuel usage patterns to create a custom delivery schedule that fits your needs. Once this custom schedule is in place, our advanced computer monitoring system incorporates degree-day information that adjusts your delivery date based on the severity of the weather. The weather will have an effect on the amount of fuel you consume. When the weather is very cold, your delivery date may be earlier than you anticipated. When there is unseasonably warm weather, our system will push your delivery date back until you require more fuel. Our computer system is able to accurately predict and schedule your next delivery, so you will never find yourself without fuel.

Important Note Regarding Automatic Delivery: The dates on which automatic delivery customers receive their deliveries are estimated based on degree days and past fuel consumption. Automatic delivery does not guarantee a customer will not run out of fuel in the event that their home consumption levels are higher than anticipated. Please be sure to call us with any changes to your household that might impact fuel usage, such as a home extension, working from home, new baby, etc.

If you prefer to monitor your fuel levels and schedule your own deliveries, then our will-call delivery service may be right for you. You can take care of scheduling your next delivery with our easy-to-use customer portal. Stafford Oil & Propane makes it easy for you to make sure your home is properly stocked with fuel. If you run out of fuel, we provide emergency fuel delivery 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You can call us at (603) 524-1480 anytime to schedule an emergency delivery.

Through our extensive history, Stafford Oil & Propane has built a reputation for reliability and outstanding service. So don’t wait; become an automatic delivery customer today! Contact us by completing our online form or giving us a call at (603) 524-1480 with any questions or comments you may have.
