Fast, reliable heating oil deliveries in beds, herts and bucks



  • Called this morning as we’d run out of oil, I was told no promises could be made but the kind lady on the phone would mark the delivery as urgent and she’d see what they could do. She did say worst case could be 5 working days. A few hours later I received a call to say they would be delivering tomorrow. Great service and appreciated. David Henderson
  • Fantastic company - great on-line ordering service, competitive pricing, fast delivery and most importantly when we ran out of oil over the weekend, they were able to do a delivery by 10.00 am on Monday - I have never experienced that with any other oil company. Would highly recommend. Ethan Hussain

Agricultural fuels & oils

When you operate in an agricultural capacity, the fuels and oils you utilise are among the most important investments, affecting efficiency, running costs and overall performance.

In fact, they can literally be the only means of keeping your farm running during those busy spells.

Signalman fuel monitoring system

Running out can be costly. But with the Signalman Fuel Monitoring System, we’re able to reduce the number of deliveries to your site, and your costs as a result.

You will also eliminate the need for manually checking your oil tank, whilst the system can be programmed to automatically raise an order for your next delivery, ensuring you always have enough fuel. We’ve helped many existing customers upgrade to the Signalman Fuel Monitoring System to improve ordering efficiencies and we’d be more than happy to run through the many advantages of this system in more detail.
