If you think all oil tank removal companies are the same, you are not alone. In 2018 more than 68 percent of New Jersey businesses said they chose an oil tank removal company based on who showed up on page one of Google or in local directories.
If you are a business owner, you should definitely be selective in which oil tank removal company you work with. Here are some tips to help you choose a great oil tank removal company to help secure your business and keep it running without any inconveniences.
Choose an Oil Tank Removal Company that Won’t Cause You Legal Problems
The last thing you need on top of a leaking oil tank buried in your property is a lawsuit, or a court battle with the State or Federal government related to the oil tank. First of all, ignoring an oil tank can warrant a fine from both the State and Federal government. And if your oil tank removal company does a bad job causing soil contamination, the fines can go through the roof.
Make sure the oil tank removal company is licensed, bonded and insured. In the event an employee or visitor to your company were to sue you over a leaking oil tank issue that could have grown from a hiccup in the oil tank removal process, having a non-licensed service provider could cause you to wind up in court.
Make Sure the Oil Tank Removal Company in Insured
This point ties in a lot with the above mentioned consideration. Many New Jersey oil tank removal companies are insured against legal and costly problems. The first thing you will want to ensure is that your oil tank removal company is certified, licensed and bonded. They should offer a minimum of 5 million in coverage, and allow for certain add-on coverage considering unique circumstances.
Years in Business
It may not matter how long your dry cleaner or gardener has been in business; service is service. However, when it comes to an oil tank removal company, the time they have been around testifies to their efficiency. Oil tank removal is very challenging and poses a number of risks not necessarily for the customer, but for the company. Novice oil tank removal service providers make costly mistakes all the time, and some of them go unnoticed by the customer. Look for a company that’s been in business for at least 10 years, and that isn’t on public record for legal problems.
Capabilities of an Oil Tank Removal New Jersey Company
Make sure your oil tank removal company is a true New Jersey specialist that offers multiple services. Oil tank sweep, oil tank detection, soil remediation, environmental remediation, demolition, and oil tank removal services should be accessible under one roof.
Unfortunately, companies run into devastating and costly disasters where a leaking oil tank seeps into groundwater causing the need for soil remediation, environmental remediation, and a number of other expensive services
