Want the convenience of having gasoline delivered to your home, business or job site? Tired of dragging 5 gallon cans to the local convenience store? Worried about employees transporting containers of gasoline and losing productive time costing you money in payroll and overhead? Were you left high & dry during the last natural disaster with no gasoline? CES can help if you answered YES to any of the above.
CES delivers bulk gasoline to selected areas of Sullivan County, New York and specialize in homeowners and small business customers.
Commonly asked questions:
Q: How many gallons do I need to order?
A: 150 gals min
Q: Can I save money by having gasoline delivered to my property vs buying at the local gas station?
A: Sorry – not on the per gallon cost vs what you see at the local pump. Gasoline isn’t a profit center for most gas stations today, some big stores sell close to a loss just to get you inside the store to buy other items or chain stores use it to hook customers to points cards, lose money on gasoline to get you to purchase high margin items from them. Most c-stores work on less than a 12 cent profit from the pump price. When we deliver small amounts we’re putting in a small tanker truck and bringing to your location adding expenses. We base pricing on a differential over the posted “rack price” plus add a flat delivery fee of $100 – $150. The SAVINGS comes from not paying an employee to waste time getting cans filled and by ensuring that all of the gasoline you buy makes it back to your property. (not to say that employees can steal, but it happens). We supply gasoline as a convenience item for our customers.
Q: What octane gasoline do you offer?
A: Most commonly we stock 87 octane but if ordering at least 800 gallons we can deliver higher octane.
Q: Where can I get a gasoline tank?
A: We’re happy to get you price options on various size tanks, with or without spill containment and a variety of pumps / hoses. If you’re going with an electric pump, you’ll need to get your licensed electrician to connect electrically.
Q: Do I have to pay “road taxes” if CES delivers to my home gasoline tank and we use in our snowmobiles?
A: Unfortunately – yes. We buy all our gasoline pre-taxed from our suppliers but you’re able to file with the State of New York to get a refund if you’re qualified for off-road use. Click here for the NYS tax refund form.
Q: Do I have to register my gasoline tank with the NYSDEC?
A: Not if it’s under 1100 gallons. Learn more from the NYSDEC HERE.
Q: What are your credit terms?
A: Credit approved net 10 days or COD / pre-pay otherwise. For a credit application, click HERE.
Q: Can I save if I order a ‘full tractor trailer load’?
A: Yes. When you order 9,000 – 12,000 gals of gasoline we can offer you a very competitive price since we’re not ‘repackaging’ into a small delivery truck and handling twice. We bring from the terminal directly to you via our own tractor trailers.
Q: Does CES deliver on-road and off-road diesel fuel?
A: Yes. We move hundreds of thousands of gallons of diesel fuel each year for our own fleet, through our retail station in Monticello NY and also to commercial customers throughout the region. We provide tanks on a leased & loaned basis depending on the consumption, can deliver off-road directly to your excavation equipment, back-up generators or processing equipment directly or for the on-road fleet, we can offer direct refueling to save you on labor expenses at night. Time = money, let CES help you save both!
