Welcome to Glenravel Oil Club

Glenravel Oil club was started in October 2012 with assistance from Ballymena Borough Council (as part of the Mid & East Antrim, Causeway Coast and Glens Cluster of Councils) and the Public Health Agency. As the price of home heating remains high many of us struggle to afford a large delivery of oil and pay a premium if smaller quantities are ordered. For a small annual membership you can join our oil buying scheme and benefit from the lower prices that can be negotiated by buying oil in large quantities and can order smaller quantities of oil without paying a heavy premium.

How does it work?

Members place their order with a community co-ordinator. Orders must be placed by a specified date each month. Participating oil suppliers are then contacted and the best price negotiated for the bulk order. Members are then advised of estimated delivery dates. By making the most of the joint buying we can make savings and pass them onto members whose fuel costs are high simply because they have oil-fired central heating.

The Environment benefits too

Every time a tanker makes a delivery it uses a lot of fuel - a full tanker can get as little as 8 miles per gallon. If deliveries are organized so that one tanker delivers to several customers in the same area instead of making lots of individual deliveries, the tankers fuel consumption is reduced.
