Leasing Vs. Purchasing A Propane Tank

Which choice is right for me?

propane tank pennsylvaniaAre you in the market for a new propane tank?

If you’ve bought a new home, the sellers may have leased the tank from their propane delivery company. If you want that company to continue to handle your propane deliveries, you can simply set up a propane tank lease with them (we handle these transfers all the time – it’s super easy.)

However, if you want to use a different propane delivery service, it’s a bit trickier. Why is that? No propane delivery company will fill another company’s leased tank.

Or, differently, perhaps your propane tank is no longer enough to meet your propane needs. That happens if you’ve added new propane appliances like a fireplace or range to your home (or both) to your home and need to accommodate.

There’s a few ways to handle these situations. We’ll explain:

Owning vs. leasing your propane tank

When you own a propane tank outright, you have the freedom to choose your propane delivery company. You can also easily switch to a new one if you are not satisfied with your service or current rates.

But, that freedom that comes with ownership also comes with its fair share of responsibilities. YOU are solely responsible for your propane tank. That includes the maintenance and repairs of your propane tank and all fees incurred along the way, whether safety checks, or any applicable repairs over time.

If the propane tank that came with the house is old or in poor condition, you may need to replace it altogether. If that’s the case, you’d best be prepared: buying and installing a new propane tank can costs thousands of dollars.

Rest assured though, there’s a much easier solution: When you lease your propane tank from Poore’s Propane, all of those burdens are off your shoulders. Leasing a tank means your propane delivery company (that’s us!) takes care of maintenance, repairs, and of course, your refills too.
