New Website promises Heating Oil to customers at the click of a mouse!
7th March 2007
A new North Yorkshire-based ebusiness is trying to revolutionise the way heating oil is purchased. With a click of their mouse, www.heatingoil.co.uk customers in the north of England and North Wales can log in to choose their delivery date, including next day delivery.
For those customers who can plan a little further ahead and be more flexible with delivery, orders can be bulked up resulting in fewer tanker journeys and much keener prices for the customer.
“Unfortunately we can’t do much about the price we pay for home heating oil, because that’s dictated by the market,” says heatingoil.co.uk’s Marketing Manager Philip Forbes-Bell.
“What we can do is offer customers a highly efficient, cost effective and environmentally friendly way of buying home heating oil. By showing all of our prices on a simple calendar, the customer can choose the delivery option and price that is right for them.“
As well as placing an order, visitors to heatingoil.co.uk, which is backed by Yorkshire oil supplier, Bayford & Co Ltd, can check daily oil prices, obtain an instant quote and discover the ‘Seven Secrets’ of buying home heating oil. By typing in their postcode they’ll also discover when the next ‘White Hot Day’ will happen in their locality.
So what’s a ‘White Hot Day? “A ‘White Hot Day’ is when a customer selects delivery on a day when one of our tankers is already scheduled to visit their postcode area,” explains Philip. “If we’re already delivering, their order can be bulked up with the rest, resulting in obvious transport cost savings, which we can then pass on to the customer. It’s also better for the environment, because it means our tankers deliver more efficiently. Customers don’t have to wait for a ‘White Hot Day’ to happen, they can request one for their area.”
According to Philip, the way people buy a whole host of commodities is changing and that includes home heating oil. “Customers want to be able to purchase 24-hours a day, and more people are turning to the internet to do this. Heatingoil.co.uk meets those needs and much, much more.
Our website is unique and has lots of great features including £10 for every friend you recommend. Add to that our deliberately transparent approach to price-setting and we’re sure that customers will rapidly come to regard heatingoil.co.uk as the most convenient, reliable and cost-effective way to buy their home heating oil.”
