Oil Tank Protection Plan
This plan enables customers of Stafford Oil Company, Inc. to guard their home oil tank against the costly expense of replacement.
If a leak should occur in a tank protected under this program, certified technicians of Stafford Oil Company, Inc. will replace the tank with a tank of similar size, up to 330 gallons, at no cost to the customer for the tank or labor to install it up to a maximum benefit of $4,000. This protection does not cover any environmental impact or damage that may be a result of tank leakage, the cost of lost fuel, or damage caused by vehicles, ice, or any other external factor.
Disposal of old tank:
The proper cleaning and disposal of the old tank is covered by this Plan and the cost will be deducted from the $4,000 maximum benefit.
The cost of this coverage is presently $74.00 per year, per tank and will be billed annually in the month of August. If you wish to enroll in the Tank Protection Plan, the billing will be pro-rated monthly through July 31. The plan renews annually in August and an invoice will be mailed to you.
A requirement for coverage and renewal under this Plan is that all heating oil gallons deposited in the protected tank must be purchased from Stafford Oil & Propane.
