Don’t Attempt to Remove the Oil Tank Yourself

Removing an oil tank by yourself could result in costlier damage to your property and/or the environment, not to mention you could be putting your personal safety and that of others in jeopardy. Our company follows all posted government and environmental regulations to ensure your oil tank removal is handled with the utmost care. Removing your unwanted oil tank not only gives you peace of mind but can also help you sell your home and get a better home insurance premium. Many insurance companies won’t offer you protection if you have an oil tank on your property.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • How will I know if my property has an underground oil tank?  There are some indications of an underground oil tank on your property. Contact our team to walk you through some of the signs of a buried oil tank
  • What should I do if there is an underground oil tank on my property?

As soon as you find an oil tank on your property, you should call our professionals for an inspection. If you are planning to buy the land, under no circumstances should you seal the deal until the tank is removed or the ground is tested for any contamination.
  • Why is a buried oil tank a matter of concern?

The petroleum products stored in a steel underground tank have a finite life expectancy and if corrosion occurs, the stored content leaches into the environment. Buried oil tanks have become matters of environmental and legal concern as well as safety hazards for home owners and estate buyers.
