Two reasons to lease, not buy your propane tank

Buy Vs LeaseIf you’re considering buying a new propane tank for your Delmarva home, think long and hard about your choice: while owning your propane tank may give you flexibility in choosing a propane supplier, it comes at high cost compared to leasing.

Buying your own propane tank is almost always a bad deal for you because:

  • You are responsible for its upkeep. If you buy your propane tank, it’s your responsibility to keep the tank in compliance with all applicable laws and codes. That maintenance takes time and requires professional service that you will have to pay for (see reason two below).
  • Owning a propane tank can get expensive. The purchase cost of a 500-gallon tank alone can be more than $2,000. You’ll also need to provide replacement parts if you need them for repairs, plus professional service to keep your tank operating safely.

If you lease a tank from Poore’s we are responsible for the routine maintenance and up-front installation costs of your propane tank. All you have to do is pay your monthly bill and enjoy your propane-powered home.

The truth is leasing a propane tank is almost always the smart choice for the average residential propane customer. Our technicians will help you choose from a host of economical propane tank options, then get your equipment up and running quickly, safely, and correctly – always in compliance with applicable laws and codes.
