Need Heating Oil

Greetings,

We are new to Mies, Switzerland and our heating oil (fuel) tank is empty. How do you buy fuel oil here and where should I look. I only speak English. Thanks for your help.

Re: Need Heating Oil

Take a look in the yellow pages. Ask a friend or neighbor for help..

If you are new here, then you are probably renting.

Ask your landlord, they surely know the best solution.

Re: Need Heating Oil

Thank you for your replies. We have checked the yellow pages to no avail and the landlord is out of the country until February.

Re: Need Heating Oil

Take a look at this website.
Call the closest number, ask kindly to speak to someone that can
communicate in English. Daily till 5:30 pm.
Tell them your problem, order your oil.
Easy!

Re: Need Heating Oil

It is unusual though that this is the renter's responsability and competence. At least if this is an apartment block?

Re: Need Heating Oil

If you co-ordinate your oil delivery with one or more of your neigbours, you get a discount as you save on delivery costs.
In Kanton Aargau, I use http://www.heizoel-fredy.ch/ - the son of the owner (Robert) speaks and writes English and is very helpful.

I still cannot get over the concept of having to try and judge when to buy my oil and how much to order. The prices fluxuate so much. 6 months ago I paid 127 chf per 100 litres, today it is about 73 francs. For a 4000 L tank, this is a hell of a price difference.
