Should I lease or buy my propane tank?

If you’re thinking about buying a new propane tank for your New Jersey home, we have a suggestion for you:

Don’t do it.

Sure, owning your propane tank may give you flexibility in choosing a propane supplier, but it does so at a high price – in two key ways – compared to leasing.

For one, if you buy your propane tank, it’s your responsibility to make sure it continues to comply with all local, regional, and federal safety laws and codes year after year. Maintaining your propane tank takes time and requires professional service that you will pay for out of pocket…which leads us to point number two.

Buying a propane tank is expensive  – both up front and in the long run. A 500-gallon tank alone can be more than $2,000. You’ll also need to pay for any parts and service needed to keep your tank compliant, and – if you choose an underground propane tank – excavation and concrete pouring costs, too.

If you lease a tank from Blue Flame, we are responsible for installing and maintaining your propane tank. You’ll get FREE tank inspections and repairs, FREE upsizing if you decide to expand your propane use, and FREE propane tank maintenance. All you have to do is pay your monthly bill, sit back, and enjoy propane’s many benefits.

The bottom line on leasing vs. buying

Unless you happen to be a licensed propane technician, leasing your propane tank is almost always the smart choice. Our service staff will help you get your right-sized propane tank up and running quickly, safely, and correctly – always in compliance with applicable laws and codes. No headaches, no hassles, no added expenses.
