Take advantage of our Oil Tank Protection Plan.

Oil tank insurance in New Hampshire.

One of the many benefits of being a Stafford Oil Company customer is the ability to take advantage of some of the cost saving, peace of mind programs that Stafford Oil Company has developed. One of these is the Tank Protection Plan. The Tank Protection Plan was developed to cover the cost of replacing a leaking basement oil tank. Most homeowners’ insurance policies do not cover oil tank replacement, leaving the customer to bear the financial burden.

For an annual fee (currently $65), billed in August of each year, Stafford Oil’s Tank Protection Plan provides you with protection from the costly expense of replacing your tank if a leak should occur. In the event of a tank failure, Stafford Oil’s certified technicians will replace your tank. This coverage provides you with up to $2,500 of coverage towards the cost and installation of a new tank and the cost of disposal of the old tank.

Stafford Oil adds Beckett Ultraguard to its oil as a preventative measure. This additive brings many benefits to heating oil and helps protect tanks from rust and corrosion. The combination of this additive and the Tank Protection Plan is designed to keep your system operating efficiently and to protect you from the high cost of a tank replacement.

Stafford Oil continues to offer its customers the best value, service and technology available. Please read more about the Plan below, and If you would like to enroll in it, please contact us today. We will then contact you to set up an appointment to inspect your tank and determine if it qualifies for our Plan. Serving Laconia, Gilford, Meredith, Belmont, Tilton, Alton, Moultonborough and surrounding towns in Grafton, Strafford and Merrimack counties, New Hampshire.


This plan enables customers of Stafford Oil Company, Inc. to insure their home oil tank against the costly expense of replacement.

If a leak should occur in a tank protected under this program, certified technicians of Stafford Oil Company, Inc. will replace the tank with a tank of similar size, up to 330 gallons, at no cost to the customer for the tank or labor to install it up to a maximum benefit of $2,500. This protection does not cover any environmental impact or damage that may be a result of tank leakage, the cost of lost fuel, or damage caused by vehicles, ice, or any other external factor.

Disposal of old tank:

The proper cleaning and disposal of the old tank is covered by this Plan and the cost will be deducted from the $2,500 maximum benefit.

The cost of this coverage is presently $65.00 per year, per tank and will be billed annually in the month of August. If you wish to enroll in the Tank Protection Plan, the billing will be pro-rated monthly through July 31, 2021. The plan renews annually in August and an invoice will be mailed to you.

A requirement for coverage and renewal under this Plan is that all heating oil gallons deposited in the protected tank must be purchased from Stafford Oil Company, Inc. Stafford Oil delivers a quality product, enhanced by the Beckett Ultraguard additive, and cannot protect or renew coverage on tanks that contain product from other vendors or sources.
