Commercial Fuel Tank Removal
The advantages of having a redundant heating oil tank removed, rather than the cheaper option of leaving it in place, is that it is the safest course of action, environmentally sound and the space can be reused.
DP Fuel Tank Services in Redhill, Surrey, specialise in both commercial oil and fuel tank removal, with the minimum of fuss or disruption. This is achieved by draining any residual fuel and venting the tank to make it safe to work on. Tanks are then removed whole, for processing off-site, or cut up on-site into easily handled sections, whichever is the most appropriate and least disruptive.
Everyone at our oil tank removal company are trained to avoid any damage to grounds or rooms.
Many organisations across the South East and Midlands are now moving their heating systems away from oil to more economical and environmentally friendly fuel sources. Others are moving away from oil fired central heating because of the increasing legal burdens.
Safely Removing Fuel Tanks
Removing a tank is not just a matter of undoing a few rusty bolts and lifting it onto the back of a lorry. We have to clean it thoroughly first, so that it can be transported safely and recycled.
The fuel tanks have often been built in almost inaccessible basement rooms. Sometimes they are completely bricked up to provide a bund in case of leaks, with just a small inspection hatch being left.
This means our team in Redhill have to cut up the tanks on the spot and manhandle the pieces out through a maze of corridors, stairs and doors, without damaging anything on the way out. This we have achieved at many high-profile jobs, including Buckingham Palace and a number of prestigious hotels in the South East.
Opting to have a redundant commercial heating oil tank removed, rather than leaving it in place, offers several advantages. Firstly, it is the safest course of action. Secondly, it is environmentally sound as it eliminates the risk of leaks and contamination. Lastly, removal creates valuable space that can be repurposed for other uses.
