Oil Tank Replacement Costs

The cost of oil tank installation in the UK is around £1,000.

There are several factors included in the installation of an oil boiler system that can impact the total cost, including labour and materials. Whether we are replacing an existing oil tank or installing a new one on your site can also contribute to the cost.

Before any work, we will perform an on-site inspection which requires a Building Control Notice. As our team is fully registered, you do not need to self-certify, but this is an option for domestic customers.

how much does oil tank replacement cost?

This, along with additional permissions, such as planning permission which may be required to install a holding vessel on the hard surfaced ground, for example, can also contribute to the total cost.

This is especially important in a listed property in Shropshire where building regulations may limit what kind of work can be done. To ensure a good working condition on site, permissions may be required first.

We aim to offer the best price for our services, both with domestic and commercial oil tanks. To learn more, please contact the team today.

There are various ways that your oil tank can become damaged over time and, therefore, will need to be replaced. The damage can occur to the holding tank or the secondary containment, based on the kind of system you use, and will need to be replaced for the best results.

With a visual inspection, we can determine whether a new oil tank is required on your site and which kind of system will work best.

When determining whether an oil tank needs replacing, we will look out for signs such as oil leaks, condensation, cracks, plastic swelling (such as on plastic oil tanks), and increased fuel usage.

The kind of damage done to the old oil storage tank may impact the cost of replacement.
