Automatic Heating Oil Delivery PRO + CON
The oil company schedules delivery's' automatically to top off the homeowners oil tank. The oil company likes this since they are assured a solid on going customer. Company's base these deliveries on what they call degree days. Their computers calculate your usage and anticipate when you'll need a fill up. This allows them to better schedule their time. This is not an exact science and unless the oil company is on top of it they can cause you to run out of fuel.
PRO: If the oil is delivered timely, you get a fresh replacement of oil delivered to in to your tank. Oil will go bad over time and fresh warm oil is better then old cold oil.

CON: If the company isn't organized and detailed they could miss your fill up and you could run out of fuel. If you do, it'll usually be at on the coldest day of the season and since your behind ... chances are your not the only one. If that's the case plan on being cold until they show or read heating oil secrets and tips to find out a quick and easy way to restart your heating system and make it run until the oil company finally is able to make it to your house.
Full Service Heating Oil PRO + CON
These guys don't just deliver fuel. They have a full time staff of well trained staff that are on call 24-7 to service their customers needs. If something goes wrong with your system the good ones are at your home in 2 hours or less.
PRO : Your dealing with a professionally run service oriented company that has your best interest at heart. They focus on service and the good ones will move heaven and earth for you. More progressive companies use an additive in their fuel that helps your system run more efficiently and reduces the change of system failure. By using these additives, I've seen failures and problem calls reduced by 30% and more.
CON: The service and the quality of fuel that your getting from a full service company increases their costs and in order to make money, they need to bill you more money. The old clich, you get what you pay for in most cases rings true. This doesn't mean COD companies are bad, just different.
NOTE: Ultimately your decision to choose between a full service company and a cod guy is based on your needs. Remember all full service guys aren't created equal either. For a clear description with all the details between the two different companies and what makes a good full service company and what to be concerned about you should read heating oil secrets and tricks. It takes you by the hand and explains all the details that you need to be aware of.
It's like having a brother in law in the business and these days the way the heating business is going, having a broth in law in the business is a very good thing.
