Domestic Oil Tank


Service Overview

Tank removal is very much at the heart of our operation. We can offer tank removal services to commercial customers across the country.

As with any of our services, a tank removal quote will be tailored to your requirements, as no two jobs are the same. Please see below the section on obtaining a quotation.

We can safely and efficiently remove large scale fuel and oil tanks from basements, excavate underground tanks, lift and transport above ground tanks, through to small workshop tanks.

Obtaining a Quotation

The cost to clean or remove your oil tank will largely depend on your location, the access to the tank and the type of tank. In certain situations, bunded plastic tanks can be removed free of charge.

If you are considering having your tank cleaned or removed, the easiest way is to gather some simple information on your tank first:

  • The tank size in litres or the physical dimensions
  • How much liquid is in the tank
  • A description of how we can access the tank with a vehicle
  • What is it made from (plastic or steel)?
  • If possible, take a photograph of the tank and access to it?
  • If the tank or tanks are no longer in use, the level of fuel / oil in them for disposal.
  • Where in the UK the tanks are located.
  • If possible some pictures of the tanks and subsequent access e.g. beneath manhole covers or access for large vehicles.

With that information, we can gain an immediate picture of your requirements, and often get a quotation back to you very quickly. The quotation will set out the work required to remove your tank, along with details of any documentation that we’ll issued to you, authorities that will be notified by us and caveats that may be required.


A Safety First Approach

With a safe system of work in place and the correct equipment, we can carry out your tank removal safely and efficiently, often with minimal disruption to households and always with a great end result.

Every tank removal job is be different, that is why we’ll produce a tailored proposal and safe system of work to suit your needs.

All of our work is carried out by our own in-house team, we never subcontract our work and one of our team will be there to answer your questions both before, during and after the tank removal process.

  • My oil tank is in the basement, can you remove it?

    We have safely removed tanks from numerous locations such as basements, lofts, garages and sheds. Although oil tanks can be large and appear difficult to deal with, we have the methods and experience to safely empty, clean and remove an oil tank from just about any location.

  • Will I need to be home for you to remove my oil tank?

    If the tank is located outside the building, you don’t really need to be there. Providing we have confirmation in writing that you would like us to remove the tank, we can take care of the rest. If the tank is within the building, we would obviously need to gain access to remove the tank.

  • How much does it cost to remove my oil tank?

    As with any job, the cost really depends of the scope of the work being carried out. A bunded plastic tank located within close proximity to Leeds can often be removed very cheaply, however a steel tank in a basement requiring considerable travel would be more expensive. Prior to making your initial enquiry, some basic info such as size of the tank, quantity of oil for disposal, where the tank is located and what it is made of can help us to give you a good indication of anticipated costs.
