Testimonials

Greg Stacey

Faultless service. Ordered online at a very competitive price and delivered very quickly at no extra cost (cheaper than Boiler Juice). Western Fuel has delivered to us previously through Boiler Juice… this time I thought I would cut out the middle man and go direct. Very friendly delivery guy. All round, very happy with the service.

Thanks so much for getting my delivery to me today I had about 2” left & I had been waiting for my previous supplier to deliver for 24 days never again.
Thanks again for the prompt service

Called at 7:45 this morning after my boiler broke down yesterday, the plug said we had 4 bars but the tank turns out was empty.
Initially been told it would be the middle of next week for a delivery, I explained to the lady I hadn’t any hot water & she said she would speak to the delivery team & try for tomorrow- got home now and they have delivered today at 11:30am.
Now that deserves a Five Star review. Just got to get the boiler back working now

We have used Western Fuel for oil delivery for 30 years. They have always given excellent service and the people working for them are polite and a pleasure to see. Recently Western Fuel arranged for us to have a new tank installed. The service we received from them was excellent especially when the Aga went out. As a result they serviced the Aga and solved the problem very quickly. A local company working for local people is no cliche – it really happens.

Fantastic service from Western Fuel. Completely out of fuel due to the incompetence of another Company. Called on Monday and they offered me delivery that Thursday for no extra cost. Next I know is we get a text through Monday evening saying it will be here tomorrow and the house is now warming up nicely again. Thank you so much Western Fuel! Won’t go anywhere else now.

Thankyou so much. Took my eye off the ball and oil ran out. Phoned Thursday. Couldn’t be delivered till 19th, 8 days. Explained I had no heating or hot water. Because I was close by, squeezed me in for next day delivery. 5 star service.

Did the yearly ring around for heating oil prices then came back to Western fuel and they matched it. Always polite staff both in the office and the tanker drivers. Will go out of their way to help at any time.

Absolutely blown away by the fantastic service today.They went out of their way to get us back up and running with our boiler. Not long moved into this house and thought we needed more fuel as no hot water this morning. They could have just taken my order and my money but during our conversation they felt something didnt add up and so one of their engineers came out, took a look and got the boiler working again (it was not that we needed more fuel as I thought) Have placed the order anyway and will use these guys from now on.
