Top Questions to Ask for Onsite Fuel Service

Whenever you’re looking for a supplier or contractor, you have to closely assess the value of the services you will be receiving from that provider. You also have to gauge if the service provider can actually meet the needs of your company.

When it comes to onsite fuel service, there are some basic questions you have to ask before signing up for a company’s services. Here are some of those critical issues to sort out:

How do you assure fuel quality and safety?

Naturally, you want your equipment to be fueled with quality gasoline, diesel, and other petrol, so you need to make sure that what you receive is pure and not contaminated. Of course, you also want to avoid costly liabilities like injuries or fuel losses. Make sure the provider employs only licensed and certified HazMat drivers, uses rigorous quality checks, and employs standard safety precautions and anti-theft measures.

Can you provide documents, reports, or data to track fuel service usage?

The data supplied by your provider can be helpful if you want to track your fuel expenditures and manage your overheads. Make sure that they use precise data collection and reporting methods.

Can you perform fueling anytime and anywhere?

The services should fit into your operations schedule and be available during emergencies, so make sure your chosen supplier has 24/7 services. Of course, don’t forget to check if the company can supply the needs of your fleet or equipment—construction machines or generators, perhaps—using the appropriate gears and fuels.
