Heating Oil Buying Groups
2 Discount Schemes

Purchase your central heating oil
as part of an oil group and
save money!

By making a bulk purchase of central heating oil, normally a tanker load of 4500 litres, it is possible to make savings on the cost of purchasing heating oil. Oil companies will give a discount if they can deliver a tanker load of oil to several addresses in the same community. The aim of these two group schemes is to take advantage of the discount.

Felmersham Oil Buying Group



The Oil Buying Group is currently administered by Brian Conibere.  To join the group send an email to this address: oil-subscribe@mk437.net and complete the email with your name, address, phone number and email address and asked to be added to the Oil Group mailing list. You will then be automatically emailed when Brian is compiling the next order. The minimum order is 500 Litres. Please note: This scheme is for residence of Felmersham only, residence of Radwell have their own scheme, see below.

How it currently works


Several times during the year Brian, the Oil Buying Group Administrator, sends an email to members of the Group asking if they wish to purchase oil. If you would like oil, then follow the link on Brian's email and complete the order form. This ensures that your order is automatically added to the order spreadsheet. Please note: You can ask for a top-up or a fixed quantity, but it must be at least the minimum order of 500 litres. Brian will advise receipt of your order and the day it will be delivered. Payment for the oil is made directly to the supplier.

If you have any questions about Joining the Group or need advice then please call Clive Just on 781967.


Radwell Heating Oil Group

Radwell also has a Bulk Buying Syndicate for Heating Oil which is co-ordinated by Paul Keeble (782134) and Val Horrell (782140) but it is managed differently to the Felmersham scheme.

Currently the Group has around 20 members who join together twice or three times a year to purchase oil in bulk and therefore get a competitive price. When an order is about to be placed residents are asked whether they want a set amount oil (say 400 litres) or approximately how many litres they need for a top up. Generally 15,000 to 18,000 litres are ordered by the syndicate.

Each householder is invoiced by the supplier (usually Conquest Oil Company) and the householder pays the bill. It is reckoned that a saving of 50 a year can be obtained from the average bill by buying in bulk. New members, who live in Radwell, are welcomed and should contact either Paul or Val.

Both the Felmersham and the Radwell Oil Buying Groups are completely independent of, and have no connection with, felmersham.net
The felmersham.net webmaster is therefore not responsible for any administration errors or messages.
