What is the scheme about?

The Community Bulk Oil Buying Scheme could reduce the cost of your domestic heating oil.  All you need to do to take advantage of the scheme is to pay an annual membership fee, which will cover as many oil orders as you need during the course of the year.

Annual membership fees


Domestic: £24          Community Building: £36        Business: £120

What’s the snag?

There isn’t one.  By bringing communities throughout Staffordshire together and making the most of joint buying power, we can make savings and pass them directly to people like you whose fuel costs are high simply because you use oil-fired central heating.

The environment benefits too!

Every time a tanker comes out to make a delivery, it is using a lot of diesel - a full tanker can get as little as a horrifying 8 miles per gallon.  If deliveries are organised so that one tanker delivers to several customers in a village instead of making lots of individual deliveries, the fuel consumption is reduced and so is traffic in the village.

5 easy steps to cheaper oil
 
Step 1: Join the Community Bulk Oil Buying Scheme
Download the membership form or request a form by calling 01785 242525 Ext 202.

Before completing the membership form, please read “How the scheme works” and the “Terms and Conditions”

Once we have received your completed form and membership fee, we will send you all the necessary paperwork.

Step 2: Wait to hear from the Community Council of Staffordshire
Each month you will be invited to place an order by a set date. The minimum order is 500 litres.
 
Step 3: Place an order by either post, phone or email
Remember - Your order increases our negotiating power, please remember once submitted we regard it as a firm order.
 
Step 4: Sit back whilst we negotiate the price
We negotiate the best price from a whole range of suppliers. We will contact you with the price, supplier and any details you need to know regarding delivery of your order.
 
Step 5: Take delivery of the oil and pay the company
The oil will normally be delivered within 10 working days of the order. You pay the company supplying the oil direct.
