DO YOU WANT CHEAPER HEATING OIL PRICES?
What's the scheme about?
Community First has set up a new service that will reduce the cost of your domestic heating oil each time you place an order.
All you need to do to take advantage of the scheme is to pay an annual membership fee, which will cover as many oil orders as you need during the course of the year.
What's the snag?
There isn't one. The scheme is being promoted by Community First, the Rural Community Council for Wiltshire, a long established and well respected Wiltshire charity.
By bringing communities throughout Wiltshire together and making the most of joint buying power, we can make savings and pass them directly to people like you whose fuel costs are high simply because you use oil-fired central heating.
The environment benefits too
Every time a tanker comes out to make a delivery, it is using a lot of diesel - a full tanker can get as little as a horrifying eight miles per gallon. If deliveries are organised so that one tanker delivers to several customers in a village instead of making lots of individual deliveries, the fuel consumption is reduced and so is traffic in the village.
Annual membership fees
Community Building: £36
which will cover your oil deliveries for a year.
5 easy steps to cheaper heating oil
Step 1: Join the CF Bulk Oil Buying Scheme
Download and complete the membership form below.
Step 2: Wait to hear from your local co-ordinator
We will let your local co-ordinator know that you have joined the scheme. Each month they will email you to ask whether you want to place an order. The minimum order is 500 litres.
Step 3: Place an order
Let your local co-ordinator know you want to buy oil. Each month they submit a total village order to us. Your order increases our negotiating power, so once submitted we regard it as binding.
Step 4: Sit back whilst we negotiate the price
We negotiate the best price from a whole range of suppliers. Your local co-ordinator will advise you who the supplier is, the price per litre (exclusive of VAT, currently at 5%) and the approximate date of delivery.
Step 5: Take delivery of the oil and pay the company
The oil will be delivered as soon as possible and you pay the company supplying the oil direct.
