What are your delivery days?

Each zip code of our service area enjoys two free deliveries per week.  Depending on your zip code, you may have Monday & Thursday, Tuesday & Friday, or Wednesday & Saturday delivery service.  As long as your order is placed the day before your free scheduled delivery day,  you absolutely pay no service charge.
You  do not have to wait until your scheduled delivery days to enjoy our service.  With our "Next Day Service", you pay a low fee of $4.99 for your unscheduled delivery days of the week as long as your order is placed the day before the delivery day.  For example, You are going to need propane for tomorrow (which is Tuesday) and your Free Scheduled Delivery days are Wednesday and Saturday.  So, with our "Next Day Service," you can have your propane delivered on Tuesday.
