To ensure you get the services you need and a high-quality product at prices you can afford, don’t just settle for the first oil company you find. To find a reputable supplier, contact several companies and ask the following questions before you make you decide who will be delivering your oil.
How long have you been in business?
Heating oil companies won’t stay in business for long if they aren’t reliable. The amount of time a fuel oil provider has been in business is a great indication of the type of services they offer. If they’ve been in business for decades, it’s a pretty safe bet that they’re dependable.
Are your prices stable?
Home heating oil prices do fluctuate. That’s because the cost is dependent on crude oil, which changes almost daily. However, reliable fuel oil companies will monitor fluctuations in the market to keep their prices as stable as possible so they can provide their customers with the best prices.
If a company’s prices are constantly changing and those changes are drastic, keep shopping around.
Do you offer a service contract?
Your heating system is constantly working to keep you warm, which means that it’s susceptible to a lot of wear and tear. That wear and tear can affect the efficiency of the system, which not only impacts the comfort of your property, but the amount of fuel it burns through.
A reputable fuel oil company will offer a service contract. Though the agreements of the contract will vary, generally, it includes regular heating system inspections and tune-ups. With a service contract, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that the maintenance and repairs for your heating system will be taken care of.
Are emergency services offer?
Even if your heating system is regularly maintained and you have a regular schedule for oil deliveries, emergencies can happen. A reliable heating oil company will offer emergency services, including deliveries and repairs. Should you run out of fuel in the wee hours of the morning or your heating system starts acting up on the weekend, if an oil company offers emergency services, it can prevent you and your family from being seriously inconvenienced.
Are you fully insured?
Heating oil delivery companies are legally required to be insured; however, many suppliers only carry the bare minimum. A reliable heating oil company will be fully insured, including liability and workers’ compensation coverage. If an employee of the company is injured on your property or causes damage to your property, you won’t be liable for the cost.
You want to make sure that you’re heating oil comes from a reliable source. The answers to the above questions will say a lot about the reputation of a fuel delivery company. If you’re looking for a heating oil company on Long Island, OK Petroleum will answer all of these questions with a solid score. Contact them today to learn more about their oil delivery services.
Northport is a historic maritime village on the north shore of Long Island, New York. Initially designated Great Cow Harbour by 17th-century English colonists, the area was officially renamed Northport in 1837. In 1894, in an effort to localize governance, the community incorporated as a village.
The original inhabitants of the area now known as Northport were the Matinecocks, one of 13 Native American tribes of Long Island. The Matinecocks called this land Opcathontyche, which meant ‘wading place creek’. After Dutch interest a few years earlier, the land was sold by Chief Asharoken, head of the Matinecocks, to three Englishmen in 1656.
With land that was well suited for farming, the early settlers grazed cattle on pastures around the harbor. The area soon became known as Great Cow Harbour. (The nearby hamlet of was known as Little Cow Harbour.) The oldest house still standing in Northport, the Skidmore House on Main Street, was built in 1761. In 2009 the house was put up for sale, sparking the village to pass a historical preservation law.

In the early 19th century Great Cow Harbor was still a rural farming community. By the 1830s the village contained only eight dwellings. But a new industry of shipbuilding brought rapid change and growth. The village shifted away from its farming roots as shipbuilding became the community’s primary industry. By 1837 the village was being referred to as Northport.
