Don’t Make These Mistakes When Purchasing Bulk Fuel!
At Southside Fuel, we do our best to provide our commercial wholesale bulk fuel contract customers with a comprehensive way to get their fuel out to their customers. Often, those who purchase wholesale fuel from other suppliers make the same mistakes that result in overpaying for fuel, being limited in the products available for purchase, and more.
Here are some of the avoidable mistakes being made:
Buyers don’t bother to understand what causes high prices. These buyers might pay for fuel despite the high price, and don’t know when the right time to buy is or if they’re getting the best price. Luckily, there are questions buyers can ask themselves to gain a better understanding when it comes to fuel prices. “Why did prices go up or down today?” “What is affecting them in my region?” “Is now the best time to fill my tanks?”
Buyers are reactive, instead of proactive. Buyers will sometimes wait until their tanks are running on empty to buy oil. If, for whatever reason, they’re unable to get fuel, their business will grind to a screeching halt! The best way to avoid this mistake is to have a plan. Know how much fuel you go through each day, month and year, and work with Southside Fuel to guarantee you’ll always have the fuel you need!
Fuel buyers don’t get to know their suppliers! Purchasers who fail to establish a good relationship with their supplier can leave them with unanswered emails and unreturned calls. Getting to know a fuel supplier on a personal level allows buyers to know what to expect. Southside Fuel offers personal service to businesses throughout Richmond, Virginia – and you’ll always get the best prices available and a reliable source of fuel.
