New Jersey Oil Tank Removal

The market leading New Jersey oil tank removal company.

Many homes and businesses are sold with decommissioned oil tanks buried on the property. When you face the task of an oil tank removal, you can be bombarded with added services, delays and costs that exponentially increase without warning.

The reason we are contacted for an NJ oil tank removal is almost always because the clients want to sell their home, and the rusty underground tank is causing problems in completing a sale.  These large steel oil tanks were once commonplace for heating services throughout New Jersey, and buyers were not thinking about the serious problems and liability they could present down the road.  However, over time the old tanks corrode and sometimes develop cracks or holes, causing oil to leak into the surrounding soil, creating both environmental and public health issues.

Oil tank removal may be the first step to selling your NJ home.

Home buyers and real estate agents have recognized this potential liability and almost always do their diligence in discovering a buried oil tank – and insisting on its removal – before closing on the property.  Thus, although you may have even unknowingly purchased a home with an old underground oil tank, it is in the best interest of the NJ seller to get it professionally removed as soon as possible.  In many cases, a portion or all of the oil tank removal process can be covered by insurance and this article by the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance has information on those potential options.  Even if a property owner does not plan on selling until some point in the future, putting off the oil tank removal increases the risk that the tank will leak and oil will cause contamination to the soil, prompting a necessary soil remediation, further costs, and a bigger headache.

ERC Environmental Inc. did an amazing job removing the underground oil tank at the property I was going to purchase. Both Drew and Alex did a great job and were very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend hiring ERC for any underground oil tank removal or testing.
