Should I Buy Or Lease My Propane Tank?

buy or lease tank new york

A propane tank is a simple piece of equipment – but because it holds high-pressure propane gas, it is critical to maintain it properly and to fix any problems that happen with it immediately and correctly.

The question is, who’s going to pay for all of that work?

When you lease a tank from Irish Propane,

  • We take care of all needed inspections, maintenance, and repairs; if your tank needs to be replaced, we’ll do it…for free.
  • If the tank ever leaks, we’ll repair or replace it…for free.
  • If you need a larger or smaller tank, we’ll swap tanks…for free

When you buy your own propane tank,

  • You are responsible for all required inspections and maintenance, plus all costs associated with them – including replacement parts
  • You must own and know how to safely use any maintenance equipment needed to adjust and fix all the tank’s valves and gauges, and to repair tank exteriors. Remember: improper use of these tools could put your family at risk!
  • If your tank leaks, any gas lost is your responsibility.
  • By law, we cannot fill an improperly maintained tank – which means if we find a problem we cannot deliver your gas.

When you get right down to it, leasing your tank is usually the smart choice.
