Going the extra mile for our customers is important to us, and so each time our highly trained drivers deliver they undertake a delivery assessment - it's part of the service

Checking the access to your tank, the driver will also assess your tank condition for holes, cracks, rusting and deterioration. Also making sure the tank is bunded if required, inspecting the supports are suitable and stable, and the standing is sound. The valve, gauge, vent and labelling are similarly examined to ensure they meet requirements.
