Frequently asked questions

I have a question

We've got a storage solution to match every home and family, so that you can enjoy every inch of your home.** You can read about them here. But don't worry - our energy experts will advise and assist every step of the way.

We’ll own and maintain your LPG tank – meaning there'll be one less thing for you to worry about.

Because nobody ever had too much time.

Our Auto-ordering technology works by fitting a content gauge to the top of your tank, which continuously monitors your usage.*** When you're running low, the transmitter sends a GSM signal to our central computers, alongside your current gas level and usage, which allows us to schedule your next delivery when you need one.

There's no charge for Auto-ordering and it’s available on our above ground and underground tanks.
