When we started way back in 1949, Gerry Ehrhart promised his customers an uninterrupted supply of premium quality propane gas at a fair and competitive price. And the Ehrhart family has been delivering on that promise ever since.
Here are some of the many reasons today why our customers like us, based on a recent customer survey:
Unfailing fuel supply and automatic delivery
Bulk storage facilities – With the largest storage facility of any independent fuel supplier in New York state, we contract for our gas in advance of the cold winter months, allowing us to guarantee consistent supply and to soften any price fluctuations that may occur during the season.
Automatic delivery – We set our customers up with an automatic delivery schedule. These deliveries are based upon your unique fuel usage, and we monitor this each month to make sure you never run out of fuel. You’ll never have to check your tank percentage or worry about your fuel reserve. We’ll do the watching and worrying for you!
Competitive pricing and favorable terms
Competitive pricing – We at Ehrhart Propane & Oil are proud of our track record in terms of price. We are always competitive with other dealers in the area.
Favorable terms – We always surprise potential customers with our low installation costs. There is no “set-up” fee, although for certain accounts we do request a deposit up front.
We offer free outside tank installation up to 75 feet from your home. The storage tank and regulator(s) are our property, so we don’t charge you for them. Nor do we charge you rent for using our equipment.
Customers on automatic delivery do not incur a delivery charge. We do charge a special delivery charge for same-day service or for run-outs that are the customer’s responsibility. However, anyone who runs out of gas due to our mistake will receive a full tank with no extra delivery charge.
We pride ourselves on providing clear, easy-to-understand bills, with no hidden costs.
Local folks who are fuel delivery and equipment specialists
We are your neighbor – Ehrhart Propane & Oil is locally owned and operated, not run by a faceless out-of-state company. All of our employees live and work in your community. You will see the difference in the pride we take in our customers and in our work. When you call us, you will always talk to one of our employees personally.
Complete systems expertise and support – Ehrhart field technicians are the most well-trained in the area. Through nationally certified training programs, as well as state and local education and in-house training, we are always honing our expertise and developing more expansive skill knowledge. Our technicians and management team are up-to-date on all local, state, and federal codes and regulations pertaining to the fuels and systems we support.
Ehrhart Propane & Oil has also been a visible, active member of the New York Propane Gas Association (NYPGA) and the National Propane Gas Association (NPGA), leading initiatives and helping in the state and national legislative process. Our owner, Tom Overbaugh, has served on several committees in these organizations, including many years as National Education Chairperson for NYPGA and as President of NYPGA.
Other great reasons to choose Ehrhart:
Experience and dependability – We have been in business since 1949. Our drivers all hold Class C Commercial Drivers Licenses, with Hazardous Materials certification. All employees are certified through the National Propane Gas Association’s CETP (Certified Employee Training Program) — a nationally recognized safety program. You can count on Ehrhart to always be professional, courteous, and expert in everything we do for your home or business.
Storage tanks supplied at NO CHARGE – Some competitors require their customers to buy, lease, or rent their fuel storage tanks. Not at Ehrhart Propane & Oil! Our tanks remain our property, and we provide them to our customers free of charge.
Flexible billing options – Ehrhart Propane & Oil offers budget plans and a pre-buy program to help reduce your fuel costs.
