Every industry is seeing a trend of giant corporations buying up and merging with small businesses and local companies, and shifting their focus from quality customer services to maximizing profits. In our area of northeastern Pennsylvania, southern New York, and North Jersey, we’re seeing the same trend with propane and heating oil companies. When you’re choosing where to buy propane, you have two choices:
Do you make an effort to “shop small” and support local businesses who make your satisfaction a priority? Or are you being enticed by the promises the big guys are making? When it comes to propane and heating oil in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, SOS Xtreme Comfort can take care of all your home heating needs better than the big guys. Don’t believe us? Here’s just a few of the benefits of choosing our local propane and heating oil company.
When you see other heating oil and propane companies advertising that they have “the best price on propane,” you should beware. It can be tempting to let their low advertised price sway you, but there can be significant amounts of fees after you’ve placed an order. At SOS Xtreme Comfort, we do not charge any extra fees for items like propane tank rental, delivery, or environmental regulations. We offer competitive prices on propane and heating oil every day. But we will even do you one better! Since the price of propane today is often different from the price of propane last month, last week, or even yesterday, we offer Price Protection to help you choose what works best for your home’s budget.
One of the biggest factors that affects the price of propane and heating oil is the cost of transportation and storage. When you choose a local heating company that is closer to the supply source and delivers within a local area, your prices are likely to be much lower. Nationwide companies must truck the propane and heating oil across greater distances and average that cost across all of their consumers. Here in the New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania area, we’re lucky to have these heating sources right nearby—so why pay extra?
At SOS Xtreme Comfort, not only are we nearby to give you a better value, but we also own our own 300,000-gallon oil and diesel fuel storage facility which allows us to:
Heating oil and propane is what we do—and we want to do it the best. That’s why SOS Xtreme Comfort is always researching and investing in the latest technology. We were one of the first heating oil companies to use wireless technology to improve delivery performance and reduce office paperwork. The result is a seamless network from delivery truck to office that allows greater accountability, control, and immediate availability of information. Each propane and heating oil delivery truck is equipped with an onboard computer to process and control all functions.
For more than 80 years we’ve embraced new technologies in order to safely deliver cost-effective products and solutions for our valued customers in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
If you run out of heating oil or your propane tank is low, you need a delivery and you need it NOW. When that happens, would you rather dial an 800 number, listen to an automated attendant, press a number, schedule a call back, be put on hold, explain your issue, have your call transferred to another department… Or, would you rather have a personable, friendly customer service specialist answer your call and schedule the services you need? We hope the answer is clear. There are too many customers who choose a big company (like this one, or this one) and end up dissatisfied A local company works diligently to ensure that each of our customers has a positive experience. That’s how we’ve been in business for over 80 years.
When you choose SOS Xtreme Comfort for your home heating oil and propane needs, it is our first priority to ensure you are so happy and satisfied with your experience that you want to tell everyone.
Other players in the game may claim they’re “local,” but in reality, their processes, procedures, and prices are dictated by a head office that could be hundreds of miles away. At SOS Xtreme Comfort, we are a real, local, family-owned company that serves homeowners in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania with two office locations. When you choose SOS Xtreme Comfort for heating oil and propane delivery, you are helping to provide jobs for local people in your area, not line the pockets of executives. When there’s a blizzard or snowstorm and you need quick, reliable service, you will have peace of mind knowing that a familiar face in your community will be there to help.
At SOS Xtreme Comfort, we bring you competitive pricing, cutting-edge technology, and superior customer service, AND we are near you in northeastern Pennsylvania, southern New York, and North Jersey.
