Subject: Delivery Fee
Effective 08/01/2008, George Propane will begin charging
a delivery fee of $3.83 at each delivery or meter read. This charge
reflects the increased cost associated with the delivery of propane.
These costs include increases in diesel fuel and regulatory compliance
among others. Rather than incorporate these costs into the price per
gallon, we have decided to break them out as a separate charge.
We feel this is the most equitable way to distribute these costs.
This fee does not apply to pre-buy accounts.
We appreciate your business and endeavor to provide the
dependable service you expect and deserve.
Please feel free to call me with any questions or concerns.
encourage all customers to be on an automatic fill
schedule, and if you choose to be a "will call" customer,
you must call for a delivery when the gauge on your
tank is at 30%!
This will give us enough time to deliver your propane
before the tank is empty.
We also encourage all customers to have their
tanks filled when we deliver. This eliminates unnecessary return trips
for our drivers and also reduces the chance of an out of gas situation.
(Minimum deliveries are required if a will-call customer does not
choose to fill the tank.)
If your tank does run out of propane, we must have access
in order to check the gas system and turn in the gas. Due to insurance
safety standards, we cannot deliver propane and leave the tank shut
off. If you run out of gas because you are a will-call customer or
have a past due balance, there will be a service charge to check the
gas system and turn on the gas.
By strictly enforcing these policies, we feel we can provide
better service to all our customers.

calls that do not want their tanks filled.
