Oil and Coal Buying Groups in East Anglia and Beyond.

We have several oil buying groups selling over 2m litres of heating oil a year, and operating in the following areas:-

 

In Essex we have 8 groups for Braintree, Dengie, Epping Great Bromley, Great Horkesley, Maldon Stansted and Wickford, providing a total membership of nearly 1,300, and in Suffolk, we have one group in Bungay with nearly 400 members. The manner in which we operate the groups relies heavily on software which automates 95% of the ordering process. Because of this, we are able to operate without the need for membership fees and commissions on oil orders. We do however expect to derive income from sale of products other than heating oil, and advertising.

 

Extending our product range and services

The advantages of bulk buying obviously do not stop at oil, and we have already introduced coal and wood.

 

Our main objective however is to exploit the potential of our network as a Social Network, encouraging members to play an active part in finding the best deals, introducing new products and ideas.

 

If you like our approach and would like us to bring a group to your area, please contact us. Our service is entirely free!

Huge order building

This is just to remind suppliers that we have another large order building for Monday 4th Feb.

Already at well over 100,000 it is likely to triple to around 300,000 litres (across Essex and Suffolk) by the time we place the order.

Believing that big is not necessarily beautiful, we are splitting Essex into 3 zones (Stansted, N. Essex and S.Essex) so that more manageable sized orders (of around 80,000) can be offered to smaller suppliers as an option.

As usual I will provide a detailed breakdown of drops and postcodes close to the buying date.
