Do you want to buy smaller quantities of home heating oil at competitive prices,
save money allowing you to budget better?
Join our community-based
oil buying scheme TODAY!
What’s the scheme about?
It’s a membership scheme to help you buy oil in smaller quantities and at a cheaper price. Our minimum order is 200 litres. By joining a bulk buying scheme, you will benefit from the lower prices that can be negotiated by buying oil in large quantities.
How does it work?
Members place their order with a community co-ordinator. Orders must be placed by a specified date each month. Participating oil suppliers are then contacted and the best price negotiated for the bulk order. Members are then advised of estimated delivery dates.
By making the most of joint buying, we can make savings and pass them on to members whose fuel costs are high simply because they have oil-fired central heating.
The environment benefits too.
Every time a tanker makes a delivery, it uses a lot of fuel - a full tanker can get as little as 8 miles per gallon. If deliveries are organised so that one tanker delivers to several customers in the same area, instead of making lots of individual deliveries, the tanker’s fuel consumption is reduced.
How much could I save?
The Braid oil club has been operating for over 6 years and during that time customers in Broughshane and the Braid have ordered over 1.8 million litres of oil. Over the past year our customers have saved on average of 6p per litre while they ordered over 358,000 litres of oil. This brought savings of over £15,500 to our community.
