Cash-on-Delivery Discounters Make Big Promises but Don’t Deliver

discount oil massachusettsHere’s a simple fact about the home comfort business: anyone can sell heating oil at discount prices. We know many companies in Boston and surrounding towns try to win customers with “too-good-to-be-true” low prices.

But when the going gets tough — because of increased demand, diminished supply, market fluctuations, weather, or staffing issues — these cash-on-deliver fuel discounters usually disappear. They don’t have the resources or reliability to handle the crush of questions and delivery requests.

Cubby Oil & Energy has provided heating oil and home comfort services for over 70 years. We proudly deliver a top-quality product at fair prices and guarantee full-service systems maintenance. We work hard for you to deliver superior, responsive service, no matter the challenges. You’re our neighbors and friends, and we’re committed to your safety and comfort.

Here are a few reasons why a full-service company is a better bet than a C.O.D. discounter.

We Deliver More than Fuel

When you choose Cubby Oil as your fuel provider, you get a full-service partner for your home’s heating and cooling systems. Our skilled, certified, and experienced team of technicians can handle repairs and maintenance for your boiler, furnace, water heater, or air conditioning system. And if you have a no-heat emergency, we’re available to help — 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

We also offer comprehensive service plans to ensure your equipment lasts longer and works at peak efficiency.

Oil discounters don’t offer these services.

We Promise the Highest-Quality Heating Oil

Because C.O.D. discounters don’t offer systems protection, they have no incentive to provide high-quality fuel. They believe their responsibility begins and ends when they fill the tank. It does not matter to them if their fuel burns inefficiently and leaves massive amounts of soot and deposits in your equipment.

At Cubby Oil & Energy, we deliver ultra-clean B50 Bioheat SuperPlus™, containing 50 percent biofuel. This is the most eco-friendly heating oil in Massachusetts. It’s great for the planet and your heating systems. B50 Bioheat SuperPlus significantly reduces wear and tear on your system and saves you money.

We Want Your Business for the Long Haul

One thing we’ve always found about oil discounters is that they ghost their customers when things are tough. We cannot tell you how many new customers we’ve received because a C.O.D company stopped answering the phone.

You don’t have to worry about that with Cubby. We’re not looking for quick commissions — we want to build lifelong relationships. That’s why we offer:

  • Automatic delivery service
  • Credit terms
  • A secure online account portal
  • Payment and pricing programs to stabilize your fuel budget and lock in your rate
  • Convenient Auto Pay

We want to show you the value of having a full-service home fuel partner. Join our family of customers today!
