Summer is upon us, so that means we are also at that time of year where you can sign up for your next winter’s propane needs to lock in the lowest rates available. It is no secret that propane prices go up a lot almost every winter and some years the price more than doubles what you could have paid in August. Let me say it again, waiting until winter to buy your propane is usually very expensive and a waste of your money.
We tell people every year, “sign up for the pre-buy” program, and every year we have people that wait until winter to buy their propane. Well, of course they are upset the prices are higher, yet it is really out of our control because we pay a higher price in the winter too (except what we contract for during the same summer months). When you sign up during the summer, we all save on the cost of propane!
Now, I know some of you are thinking, “I can’t afford to pay for my propane in one big check this summer.” That is alright, we have a level payment plan, kind of like the electric company has “budget billing,” we can bill you for your propane spread out over ten months in ten equal payments. Yes, you can save a couple of cents a gallon by paying for your propane all at once when you pre-buy, but if you can’t write that big of a check right now, it is a LOT less to enroll in our scheduled payments than it is to pay cash during a normal winter.
So are you ready to save money? Give us a call and we would be happy to help you out. Do you want to know how much it costs before you sign up? Our team can let you know what the current price of propane is and we can even help you estimate your usage for the year. Making a phone call is easy and we are always glad to hear from you.
