We provide honest prices & flexible payment options, all year round

 

Choose from flexible payment options to suit your needs

In the midst of the energy crisis in Scotland, it’s more important than ever that we offer flexible and hassle-free payment options to suit a range of needs. From Direct Debit to Pay As You Go, choose from our flexible payment options below:

Pay As You Go: Pay in full each time you top up your fuel by debit or credit card. This payment method is a way to help with budgeting. As you’ll already know what’s exactly in your bank account, you can avoid any surprise bills and pay nothing in between top ups. Pay over the phone or online by entering your details on our secure site. 

PLANNED Pay Monthly: Pay in 12 monthly direct debit instalments with our PLANNED payment option. This method will allow you to cover large bills in smaller instalments and you’ll avoid unexpected bills that can feel overwhelming.

We’ll arrange automatic refuels when you need them, so you can rest assured that your home will never fall cold, particularly during Scottish winters. You’ll even receive price and delivery alerts before we dispatch your fuel, so you can plan your budget accordingly.

PREDICT Pay Monthly: PREDICT allows you to split your energy bills into monthly chunks, like our PLANNED payment option. But if you need a little more warning before your next delivery, PREDICT is the plan for you. We’ll send you helpful reminders via email or SMS, three weeks before we think you’re ready to top up your fuel. This payment method allows you to order fuel when it suits you, and pay in monthly instalments throughout the year. Call us today on 0345 300 8844 or use your online account to place an order.

Choose from our range of payment options to help you take control of your spending and prepare for any upcoming bills. Contact your local Scottish Fuels team on 0345 300 8844 to discuss our payment options in more detail.

 

We can help you to manage your energy usage

Install our smart monitor app to gauge your fuel usage accurately

Our new smart monitor app, FoxRadar, makes state-of-the-art technology accessible to our customers across Scotland. Estimated bills can lead to you overpaying for fuel that you haven’t used. You might even risk underpaying and be hit with a large, unexpected bill in the future. FoxRadar tells you exactly how much energy you’re consuming, so you can wave goodbye to estimated billing.

Speak to your local Scottish Fuels team to learn more about our FoxRadar rollout plan across the country.

 

Reduce your fuel consumption to save on energy bills

A smart fuel monitor provides you with regular updates on how much heating oil you’re using and when, in real time. With this data, you can make conscious decisions about the appliances you use at home and the amount of fuel you really need.

We support you with useful information

 

Answering common questions 

As one of the largest heating oil providers in Scotland, we have unparalleled insight into what people really want to know. Customers all over the country have asked us about the UK energy price cap and how this affects heating oil users.  

The government announced an energy price guarantee to help protect people’s finances whilst allowing them to heat their homes. Unfortunately, there is no price cap on heating oil. Heating oil customers must continue to seek the most competitive prices from a range of companies and providers.
