Cheaper Oil when we buy together!
Typically, when you buy more than 2000 litres of heating oil, you will pay a lower price per litre than if you were buying 500 litres. This is because it is cheaper for suppliers to deliver one large ‘bulk’ order to one area than it is for them to deliver several smaller orders in different areas.
When a larger order for one area is received, suppliers usually pass on the savings they make on delivery costs, by applying a ‘bulk discount’ to this order.
So every time we place a group, we receive a discount on the overall number of litres purchased, the more of us buying, the cheaper it is.
