Steve Rich & Associates Release Helpful Guidelines To Help Homeowners, Businesses & Municipalities In Tank Related Problems!

Newark, NJ (1888PressRelease) May 27, 2008 – Steve Rich & Associates announced today that they are offering the public a set of guidelines for finding a reputable oil tank removal service. This guidance covers all areas associated with tank removal such as, excavation, cleaning, filling, installation, commercial, residential, contaminated, fuel, aboveground, underground, locating, environmental, contractors, leaking, buried and compliance.

Steve Rich is hoping that by sharing the benefit of his 27 years in the tank removal business, he can help people connect with honest and reputable firms, and steer clear of the rest. The tips are presented in list form for ease of reading.

• Ask questions and expect answers. If you have not received a word of mouth referral, select a few possibilities to get you started and then pick up the phone and call each potential service provider. Find out how long the company has been in business, if they are local, national, international, and if they specialize in one area. Ask for their references, all contact information, as well as an outline of their company policies.

• Do your homework. Research the background of companies that you may be interested in working with. Check their references, their website if they have one, and ensure that you’re dealing with a provider who has current state licenses and certificates. If the business has a store front, go there and check it out.

• Ascertain whether or not their services match your needs. Find out the scale of work the company does. Do they specialize in one area, and does that specialty align with what you’re looking for? If they provide only local service, how far will they travel before increasing fees? It’s also important to find out when your job can be done. If they’re scheduling far in advance, you may have to wait quite awhile.

• Get a quote in writing. Ask to receive a complete price – all fees listed – and have the company commit to a working time frame to do the job. If your tank is beyond repair and requires dismantle and removal, make inquiries to determine if a provider is able to handle the job. You’ll want to find out the following:

• Area of specialization may be underground or above, fuel, chemical, or water tank removal. Ask which of these the company is experienced in.

• Insist on seeing the company’s state licensing. No license should be a sign for you to look elsewhere.

• Find out if they remove the piping, pumps and concrete foundations. If you don’t discover this until after the tank is removed, you may be faced with hiring a different contractor to come and finish the removal process.

• Do they service your sector – homeowner, business, municipality?

• Always get a quote in writing with all fees and work completion date listed. With some due diligence as mentioned above, you can protect yourself as much as possible from unreliable service and unscrupulous individuals.
