New Jersey Oil Tank Removal Cost

How much does an oil tank removal cost in New Jersey?

Oil tank removal cost is by far the number one subject of discussion New Jersey property owners want to have with us, and with good reason. Oil tank removal companies often dodge giving a clear cut response regarding their prices, and the majority of them offer what they like to call “project-based pricing”. These companies tell customers that this sort of pricing allows them to charge only for the work that needs to be done in that particular oil tank removal case, but property owners must beware of such claims. There are all-too-familiar horror stories of oil tank removal contractors hooking property owners in with a seemingly low initial quote, only to pile on costs while the work is done, leaving the customers with the difficult position of having a substantially larger financial burden than they expected. Signing an open-ended oil tank removal contract is a common mistake that New Jersey property owners make, and companies capitalize on this mistake by making them feel as if they have no choice but to pay the price that has added up over time.
