Are you searching for a reliable bulk fuel provider? If you’re in one of the many industries that rely on bulk fuel to keep going, finding the right bulk fuel provider is paramount to your success. You want to be able to make a sound financial decision when buying bulk fuel, but there are several other factors to consider as well. Whether you own a gas station, a fleet of vehicles, or need regular fuel for your emergency generators, the right bulk fuel provider can make all the difference.

Let’s take a look at 3 of the most important questions to ask before choosing a fuel service provider.

  1. What are your service areas?

The service area covered by your bulk fuel provider is a critical issue to consider. When you are located too far or in a difficult to reach area, you could experience unpredictable delivery times. Your location could also determine additional transport charges. Moffitt Services supplies bulk fuel to most of Texas and can accommodate bulk fuel delivery to almost anywhere in the United States. We provide scheduled bulk fuel deliveries so you know exactly when you will receive your fuel. Some fuel suppliers may say they service your area, but they rely on outsourcing the work or may have trouble committing to consistent scheduled deliveries.

  1. Do you have a good reputation?

If your company relies on bulk fuel, buying fuel can be one of the largest expenditures you can make. Taking time to research a bulk fuel provider can save you a lot of money and hassle. When looking to choose a supplier, look to answer specific questions about their reputation. Do they have a good reputation for being reliable? Do they readily offer helpful customer service? Do they offer fair pricing? Are they consistently on time? Do they troubleshoot problems quickly? Are they reliable for long-term service, or do they try to sell you on today’s low price? Do they focus on your needs as a customer? Do their customers stick when them for the long haul? Asking the right questions can set you up to have a healthy business relationship with the right bulk fuel provider.

  1. Do you offer competitive pricing?

While price may not be the most important aspect of bulk fuel delivery, it is often the most asked about. When it comes to buying bulk fuel, the market changes constantly. Prices go up and down daily, sometimes hourly. It can be difficult to manage prices when you have to make fuel purchases often. Your bulk fuel provider can’t do much to change those prices.

Fuel contracts, for instance, allow you to lock in a bulk fuel price for the duration of the contract. You bulk fuel provider can negotiate a price you’re happy with and then lock in that price so you can predictably manage your fuel purchases.
