Trust. How important is trust, ratings and reviews to you as a consumer?

TRUST. Do You Trust the Company You Do Business With?

How important are consumer ratings, reviews and Better Business Bureau to You? has been built on trust, honesty and transparency since inception in 2001. We are also a trusted, accredited member of the Better Business Bureau. As consumers, we really need to see what "real" people are saying about a company. This stands true for all types of products you may purchase.

A high percentage of consumers look at reviews before making a buying decision. It's a good way to get a better feel for a business before spending your money with them. All consumers may not agree that a company is the best and deserves 5 stars across the board, but you will be able to get a good feel if the majority of consumers rate a company either very good or very poorly.

As far as heating oil goes, we are no exception. Reviews matter. You always want a good oil price, but price should never be the final deciding factor in making a purchase. You should read any reviews about the company first. See how many good reviews versus bad reviews they have. Sometimes it's worth spending a few cents more per gallon to get a reliable company that previous consumers took the time to write good things about.

Reviews and ratings are a valuable consumer tool that aids them into knowing how good a product or service is before making a commitment to buy it themselves. has reviews and ratings in several areas so you know they are always fair, honest and most important....REAL.
