3 Questions to Ask When Hiring a Gas Delivery Company

Having gas delivered to your home regularly is the only way you can ensure the proper functioning of your gas appliances. So it's important to know what to expect when hiring a residential gas delivery service. Here are a few questions to ask that will help prepare you for the experience. 

How Does the Delivery Process Work?

It's important to find out all about how the delivery process works so you know what to expect if your household circumstances change over time. Right now you may only need gas delivery once a month or so. But if you're thinking about adding more appliances or making changes to your home that would affect your gas delivery needs in the future, you need to know that your service provider will be able to accommodate you.

You should find out how often a prospective service provider is willing to deliver gas to your area throughout the month and whether they offer delivery plans that will automate the delivery process over time. And you should know how much notice will be needed if you have to schedule a surprise delivery due to having house guests that increase the usage of your gas.

Are Emergency Services Available?

If your gas tank starts leaking and it needs to be repaired or replaced, you may have to fill the new tank or refill your repaired tank before you can start using your household appliances again. So it's a good idea to find out if your gas delivery company provides emergency services upfront. They should be able and willing to deliver gas within a few hours of your emergency call even if for an extra service fee. If they don't offer this kind of service, at least you will know ahead of time so you have time to put other emergency arrangements in place.

What Customer Service Options are Available?

It's also a good idea to find out what kinds of customer service options your chosen gas delivery company offers. If you don't have time or a quiet place available to call their customer service phone number, you should be able to contact your service provider via email or text. This will provide you with the convenience and flexibility to easily communicate your needs or concerns to your service provider.
