Possibly. There are no standard tanker sizes between suppliers, but there are roughly three sizes – a standard sized 6-wheel tanker (approx.10ft x 29ft), a medium or 4-wheel tanker (approx. 9ft x 24ft) and a ‘baby tanker’ (approx. 8ft x17ft). If you have limited access issues and require a ‘baby tanker’ then we cannot guarantee to be able to supply you with fuel and it may not benefit you to join the scheme. This is because we buy from whichever supplier offers the best negotiated price and if the winning supplier has not got a ‘baby tanker’ then your order can’t be placed as part of the group order and corresponding price savings.
You must be realistic about your access as some oil companies we negotiate with only have 6-wheel standard size tankers, although these are usually rear-wheel steer which makes them as manoeuvrable as 4-wheel tankers. If an oil supplier has baby tankers as part of its fleet and they deem it necessary to deliver to your address using this vehicle, these deliveries will always incur an additional charge. If in doubt about access to your property and/or oil tank it is best to contact the supplier direct to clarify delivery options.
Please note that once the monthly order has been placed, if on attempting delivery the supplier is unable to gain access to your fuel tank due to the tanker size, H&S requirements or general access issues, we reserve the right to cancel your order and refund your money. We will also mark your account as having limited access and reserve the right to cancel or charge a premium for future orders that need to be made from a smaller tanker, due to the increased costs charged by the supplier.
