HI,
WE have a calor underground tank, we are shortly going onto mains gas, having enquired with calor they want to charge us £1100 to remove their tank and that doesn't include the excavation, this sounds very expensive. We presently pay £24 a quarter rental, Has anybody else that a similar experience.

    Must admit I'm not familiar with the LPG contracts, but it sounds like a rip off.


    I'd be tempted to write and cancel the contract, stop paying the £24 pq, and tell them they are welcome to take back their gas tank if they want it.


    But I guess you need to read the small print in your contract with them........
  • Hi, would be interested to know how you've got on with this :)

    Does anyone know how they got on with this? We are looking to switch to renewable heating but have an LPG tank underground and we don't want to pay a maintenance fee on a tank we don't use or an expensive uplift fee that negates the reason we are switching to renewable.  Any advice would be appreciated or even indication of cost of removing an underground tank.

    Be careful of renewables we had a biomass boiler fitted to replace our lpg boiler.  the biomass never worked correctly RHI payments stopped. It broke down after a few months. We had 3 years of hell and no heating:(

    It’s now being removed and oil boiler put in. Hence why we now want lpg boiler removed because we are not going back to that heat source.
