Our team at Bumgarner Propane knows that you care about your home or business, and we want to help you make sure that your property remains as comfortable and as functional as possible. If you use propane to heat your property, then one thing you’ll need to do in order to keep it cozy is find a reliable propane supplier. To help you with this search, our team has put together this article to go over a few essential things to look for when choosing a supplier–if a candidate ticks all of these boxes, then you are in good hands.
- One thing to look at when choosing a propane supplier is their price structure. In particular, we recommend looking at things like installation fees, termination fees, and minimum monthly purchase requirements, if present, as this will tell you a lot about how much you can expect to pay with that particular company. In addition, it’s usually unwise to go with the cheapest option, as the quality of the service will typically reflect the low price.
- Delivery Options. Another thing to look for in a propane supplier is flexible delivery options, or a delivery option that suits your needs. If you know that you need automatic delivery, or that you would prefer a will call option, make sure to choose a supplier that will work with those needs.
- Lastly, it’s a good idea to check out a propane supplier’s reputation before you commit to hiring that company. To do this, you can read online reviews, but a more direct way to get a sense of how a company’s customers feel is to ask for a list of client references–once you have a list of former clients, contact a few directly to ask about their experiences.
