Why Buy From Oakleys Fuels?
In 1969, Oakleys Fuels acquired its first road tanker and with a small depot in Shrewsbury, started selling heating oil and automotive fuels to homes, farms and businesses. New customers irrespective of size were found by providing a reliable service at a sensible price. In the mid 1980s we expanded into the West Midlands by opening a further depot in Wolverhampton.
A new state of the art depot strategically located to take advantage of the road systems was opened in 1991 in Telford with large storage tanks and the latest loading technology. At the same time, the depots in Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton were closed and the new depot in Tamworth opened in 1998.
Oakleys Fuels is a family owned business, built up over the years by providing a consistently high level of service to an increasing number of customers. With 8 members of staff having completed in excess of 25 years continuous service with the company, we have a loyal and experienced team eager to meet and talk to you.
Whether it’s our office staff or our oil tanker drivers, knowing our customers is important. Our systems and procedures are designed to ensure our staff have the correct information to hand when it matters. Important considerations such as knowing where each customer’s oil tank is located without always having to ask makes for a quicker and safer delivery and ultimately a superior level of service.
Oakleys Fuels have contractual arrangements with a number of the largest oil refineries in the UK. This strategy allows us to take advantage of unique pricing and logistical advantages which are in turn passed on to our customers.
Oakleys Fuels remain committed to maintaining a modern and flexible fleet of delivery vehicles suitable for accommodating a range of customer requirements. We operate numerous tanker sizes including full size articulated units down to mini tankers for when access is restricted, with the latest tanker to join the fleet in Summer 2016.
