Spread the cost of your home heating oil by joining our popular Monthly Payment Scheme.
How it works
The monthly cost is based on an estimate of how much heating oil you will use a year, with the approximate total cost divided by 12. Payment is by monthly direct debit. You will receive a statement of your account every three months in addition to a priced invoice after each delivery.
An annual review of your account is undertaken to ensure that your monthly payments cover the cost of your fuel. If necessary, we will request additional funds to reconcile the account and alter your payments for the following year.
In order to join, we ask that you have paid for your latest delivery of fuel in full. Credit is also subject to status. As a member of our Monthly Payment Scheme, as soon as you've made two monthly payments you'll be able to use your account to pay for subsequent orders.
For more information, or to apply for the scheme, please contact your local depot or request a call back by sending an enquiry below. We can set up your account over the phone, or send you further information in the post.
A maintenance plan for your oil-fired boiler or cooker and our new Tankscout fuel monitoring service can also be added to the cost of your monthly payment scheme.
*Interest rate subject to change. Credit subject to status.
Watson Fuels has developed a reputation for providing a service that is second to none. Our national coverage through our extensive local depot network ensures that customers receive their orders quickly. We appreciate that many customers require a flexible service to suit their specific needs and we aim to meet those demands. We do not operate national call centres. Our order takers are located in your local area.
Over 1.5 million homes in the UK use heating oil for heating their home because it is safe, clean, and efficient. New A-rated oil-fired boilers can produce up to 97% efficiency, making heating oil a more economical fuel than others.
It would be helpful if you know the capacity of your heating oil tank. You can work this out by taking the measurements of a metal tank or by locating the model number on a plastic tank. You should also make sure that your boiler and tank have been recently serviced by a qualified engineer. If any maintenance is required, arrange for one of our engineers to visit before ordering your heating oil.
Yes. Larger quantities of heating oil are cheaper to purchase per litre than smaller quantities. In particular, ordering the minimum 500 litres at a time increases the cost both for you and for us. Why not order a larger quantity and spread the cost into smaller manageable amounts by setting up a monthly payment scheme?
There are a variety of ways to pay for your heating oil. Call your local sales depot and pay by debit or credit card. There is an additional charge for payment by credit card. Payment by debit card does not incur an additional cost. Alternatively, you can sign up to the Watson Fuels monthly payment scheme and spread the cost of heating your home.
Although some domestic boilers use gas oil, the vast majority of oil-fired boilers and cookers are fuelled by kerosene (also known as home heating oil, heating oil and burning oil.) If you are unsure which type of oil your heating system or range uses, please speak to your local sales depot or send us an enquiry.
