If you use propane to heat your building, power your appliances, or anything else, you will need a steady supply of this fuel. The best way to make sure you always have enough propane for your needs is to work with a reliable propane supplier. Unfortunately, not all suppliers are equally dependable, so our team at Bumgarner Propane has put together this guide to help you find a supplier you can count on.
• Check Qualifications – When choosing a propane supplier, you should always check the team’s qualifications before you hire them. While propane is a great fuel when used properly, it can also cause a lot of problems if handled incorrectly, so it’s important to find a team with the right training and experience to transport propane safely.
• Check Safety Records – Continuing on this theme, we also encourage you to check a propane supplier’s safety records with the Better Business Bureau before you hire them. The thing you need to pay attention to here is not whether the company has had any complaints in the past, but rather how they responded to any complaints they received. If the records show the company had a problem but fixed it appropriately, then you can feel safe to move forward.
• Delivery Options – Lastly, we encourage you to ask about a propane supplier’s delivery options before you hire them. If you want to monitor your own fuel levels and schedule deliveries yourself, make sure the company offers that option, and if you want to set up an automatic delivery schedule, make sure they offer that too.
