That's a really good link, Jude. Seems like if you order early, like a month in advance, they can bulk up deliveries to your area and cut costs. Excellent.

Magic Cochin - that is a very local web site that I never knew about. Good stuff. But I do not see any mention of oil deliveries on there. Was that what you meant?

"There may already be a syndicate in the area where you live (there's definitely one near you)"

Hi Danny

The link was to the Woodditton Heating Oil Syndicate (Telephone 01638 730853) I thought it was mentioned on the page I linked to.

We also refer to the Boilerjuice site for a picture of fluctuating prices, but our village syndicate always manages to beat the best price quoted by Boilerjuice.

Thanks, Celia. I did not read the text. We will definitely make contact with that gentleman this year. His village is very close to us. Thanks for pointing it out.

We have recently moved to a house with oil heating, and in our search to find the best price I came along a website that does all the trawling for you. It saved us £25 on 1000 litres and it was delivered by one of the companies that gave us a higher quote when we had rang in?!!!

 

Website is http://www.whichoilsupplier.co.uk

That looks like a good find, Nell. I must add it to the resources section on the blog left-hand panel.
