Every village within our distribution area is scheduled
to receive a set delivery each month from January to November. By combining
orders within your village, we can lower the distribution costs; these savings
are then passed onto you, resulting in lower oil prices.
By grouping local orders together and delivering on set days, we can reduce the amount of heavy-goods traffic in local communities. Let’s say a village has 15 buying group members who all order fuel in September. If each person’s order was placed on their local WCF Chandlers Buying Group, rather than individually ordering, we could potentially cut the number of delivery tankers making journeys into the area from 15 to 1. By cutting down the number of heavy-goods traffic in local communities, we can reduce the wear and tear to small village lanes and roads, plus reduce pollution in the local environment.
No, that is the best part about our groups. Unlike third-party consortiums, our Village Buying Groups are FREE and simple to join.
No, you are under NO obligation to place an order with us. We will simply let you know via SMS or email that we are coming to your village and should you wish to be part of that delivery, you can call to let us know by calling 01476 576200 or complete our easy to use webform.
Our minimum order is 500 litres and there is NO price difference for small volumes, so you won’t be penalised if your order is smaller than others in your village, and we won’t charge you a service or delivery fee when you do order! The price per litre is set a few days before delivery. The reason we price so close to the delivery date is to achieve the most competitive price possible once we know exactly how many deliveries are to be made to each village buying group.
You must provide debit or credit card details at the time of order to reserve your slot so preauthorisation payment can be taken. Final payment is taken after delivery, and we will only charge you based on the actual quantity delivered.
Yes, we also offer a Monthly Savers Payment Plan that allows you to spread the cost of your heating oil over the year, making paying for your home heating oil one less thing to worry about! If you are already on a savers plan, we will take the order total from your balance. If there is an outstanding balance, the extra payment must be taken on a card by calling our office on 01476 576200.
No, you don't need to be present for your delivery. All of our deliveries are metered, and we will leave a delivery note at your property confirming the amount dispensed.
Group are set to be delivered between Monday and Sunday on a set week each month, so making sure they have access to both your property and oil tank will be very helpful. In order to help you plan for your delivery, we will send you a notification the day before we intend to come, via email or SMS.
There isn’t one! With 1000's village buying groups across seven counties, the success, and savings for our customer speaks for itself
