Fuel or Oil Tank Replacement

Preparing the installation site is a crucial step in achieving a stable foundation for your oil tank. Our technicians clear the area of any obstructions and ensure a level surface.

Fuel or Oil Tank Replacement Process

Replacing your oil or fuel tank is a complicated process, meaning it’s always best to call in our expert team which is located in your area near Oxford.
Our oil and fuel tank replacement process involves several steps.
From viewing your oil or fuel tank 
and working out the best removal approach, to draining hazardous materials and more.

Hazardous Materials – Oil or Fuel Removal

Our removal process begins with removing any remaining kerosene or gas oil from your oil or fuel tank.
Even if your tank’s fuel gauge indicates that it’s empty, it’s still likely that there is remaining fuel oil inside the tank that could pose a safety risk if it’s not properly removed.

Before we remove your old fuel or oil tank, our OFTEC trained team will thoroughly clean the tank in order to ensure that any and all flammable, environmentally-hazardous materials are removed before removal work begins.

Fuel and Oil Tank Removal Process

Once we’ve safely removed and disposed of any hazardous materials that were inside your old fuel or oil tank, we’ll start the removal process.

Depending on the location of your oil or fuel tank, our team will either remove it using an excavator or mounted crane, or using a more specialised technique.

If your oil or fuel tank is installed in a location that’s difficult to access, our technicians might need to safely and carefully cut it into pieces to remove it with minimal disruption to your property.

For safety reasons, our team will complete this process using cold cutting techniques and safe, spark-free tools.

After your fuel or oil tank has been removed from your property, we’ll provide it to our trusted recycling partner. Instead of being wasted, your old oil tank will be put through an environmentally-friendly recycling process, allowing its raw materials to be put back to use.
