Re: Buying Heating Oil

I use: https://www.heizoel24.ch/

It's a comparison site, works reasonably well.

Payment - you can usually pick if you pay up front, by slip, etc. Paying in installments usually carries a higher cost.

Re: Buying Heating Oil

We just received an offer from Migrol today. For all orders placed until the 25.11.2020 you get a rebate of CHF 1.- per 100L

There is someplace on the order page where you can enter special offers/codes (www.mazout-migrol.ch) or if you place your order on the phone, you need to give the person the code.

The French code is "hiver2020". My guess is, if the offer is for all of CH, the DE code might be "winter2020". No guarantees though.

Yes, moving to more eco-friendly heatpump so no use of it anymore

Did you find someone who would take it? I likely will be in the same situation soon as I plan to install a new heating system in the summer but I am running out of oil and they won't deliver less than 800L at a time...

when I did that, I had Migrol remove the tank and they bought the oil back off me. there was about 2000l left in the tank and the paid me pretty much the same as I paid them for it.

they also charged far less to remove the tank. i had 4 quotes. migrol charged 2000 chf and the next cheapest was 8000chf! it was a 10'000l steel tank that needed cutting up in place and access was difficult.

Possibly this helps. Agrola will deliver 500L as a minimum to 8000 Zurich:

So basically it would not make a difference to have oil left in the tank in the end! I thought they'd charge extra to remove it, let alone pay it back to me.
