PROPS Heating Oil Request

(You will need to know your PROPS membership number in order to request any heating oil.)

In future, the PROPS cut off date will generally be the 2nd Sunday of each month. This may be subject to change according to supply and market conditions, seasonal demands, the capabilities of the delivery company, and outside influences beyond our control.

These are the currently planned cut-off dates:

Note that deliveries may take up to 2 weeks to arrive after these cut-off dates.

Placements will be made monthly. You cannot forward order for any of the other dates, they are only listed to aid you with your fuel usage planning

Principal Benefits of Membership:

  1. Lower prices
  2. Scheduled deliveries
  3. Less impact on local roads, lower Carbon Footprint for the area
  4. One Price, everyone pays the same price per litre!. No surcharge for small amounts (500 litre min delivery)
  5. Less Hassle - we phone round, check prices & delivery, choose a supplier and then place your order
  6. Members can expect significant savings against ‘individual order’ prices

How the scheme works

  1. Members place their oil request, using the Oil Request Form.
  2. The day after the “Cut-Off” date, specified on the Oil Request Form, the requests received by PROPS are aggregated to arrive at a bulk figure.
  3. Following that, we negotiate the best pre-vat ‘price & delivery per litre’ from a range of suppliers.
  4. The individual members requests are then forwarded to the chosen supplier.
  5. The supplier will be ‘asked’ to contact each member to make the necessary arrangements for payment and delivery. (you may not be contacted if you have not stated a reason to do so in your registration details)

PROPS is a voluntary local community initiative

PROPS is the Pettistree & Region Oil Purchasing Syndicate and it will, on a best efforts basis and without liability on our part, help you to achieve more favourable pricing on your contracts with a variety of suppliers for your purchases of heating oil.
