Residential Oil Tank Installation Services
Initially I hired Comtank to clean out two 25,000-gallon oil tanks, and later to remove them entirely. From start to finish, their professionalism was exceptional.The entire Comtank team, from the field crews to the office staff, demonstrated outstanding knowledge and expertise. The site crew handling the tank removal was particularly impressive with their politeness, cooperation, and skill. Their work on excavation, compacting, and backfilling was top-notch.Kevin and Mike in the office were incredibly responsive and helpful in addressing any concerns that arose during the project. Their professionalism made the entire process smooth and stress-free.I wholeheartedly recommend Comtank for their exceptional service and expertise.
The workers were in our driveway and ready at the allotted appointment time. We had a 1950s oil tank that needed to be replaced with a new one. It had to be removed in pieces to get it out of our house, but it wasn't as noisy as I thought it would be. They put down drop cloths and didn't leave a mess behind. They even offered to cement some holes in the basement wall that were exposed when the old tank was removed. New tank looks great! The job was finished in less than 5 hours. Would definitely recommend.
Great service at a competitive price point. Communication was top-notch and tank removal (basement) was completed in <1hr. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for tank removal service.
Very easy to get a quote and schedule the work. Once on-site, the team worked pretty quickly to take the necessary steps to remove an old oil tank from my basement. The sealed up my foundation and did a great job cleaning everything up when they were done.
Awesome experience. Team arrived slightly early and ready to work. I was working from home that day and the deinstall, install and testing processes were not disruptive from a noise or smell perspective. Our old oil tank was very rusty and it is amazing to see the transformation in our basement. Five stars for service and value!
The CommTank team was on time, friendly, and informative about the work to be done. They did all the work (oil tank and oil burner removal) in good time and left the basement clean. The staff in the office was also helpful in the process. I recommend them!
I help take care of my moms house for her and it not local to me.. Comm Tank made this process extremely easy! I spoke with Alana on the phone and she sent me a quote the same day. Alana called my mom to schedule the appointment when she was available, and the team came out on time on the scheduled day to cleanly and safely remove the oil tank from a basement with no outside access- it had to go up vary narrow stairs and out a narrow door. All was accomplished according to the quote which my family very happily paid! Thank you Comm Tank, Inc! highly recommend.
These guys have the process down pat and it was easy and straightforward. And no mess!
I'm very happy with my oil tank removal service. The crew, Miguel G and Louis D, were super diligent in following all the steps, they left my property completely spotless and with no residue. Fair price for the quality of service.
Commtank removed the oil tank from our basement as we are converting to a heat pump. They did a great job and took care of all the necessary permits. We also really appreciated their customer service - it was easy to schedule the appointment and they were always available to answer all of our calls as we had a lot of questions about the removal process and permitting.
Manuel and Nelson arrived 15 minutes early and when I greeted them, they asked if it was too early. Nice and professional. I am amazed how much great work the 2 of them did with pumping oil out cutting and removing the old tank and replacing. The quality of work is excellent and they reviewed everything at the completion. Top notch guys who are clearly good at what they do. The entire experience from the initial phone call to completion exceeded our expectations.
CommTank did an awesome job replacing my old, rusting oil tank that was showing signs it could develop a leak with a new Roth double wall tank. Took down the wooden scaffolding, drilled new fueling pipes, patched the old ones, and put up a nice discreet, overhead fuel line to my boiler. The crew came on time and took 4 hours to do everything. The new unit is sleek and compact. The double wall construction, leak detection mechanism, and 30 year warranty gives peace of mind.
I had an oil tank that needed replacing. Santiago came out quoted the job for a fair price. The installation was efficient and done as expected. Later I had some issues with my boiler not getting fuel. I called Comtank to check in with them. Santiago got on the issue and had a crew onsite in no time to get my boiler up and running. Their level of service really stood out. I would not hesitate to work with them!
I had to have a new oil tank installed by CommTank, Inc. which was recommended to me by my oilman. I contacted CommTank and the sales rep, Santiago, came by the next day. He explained everything to me as to what would be done and how it would be done I was extremely impressed with the two men who came the next day to install the new oil tank. They showed up on time, and were very professional, knowledgeable and courteous Their names were Marvin and Junior. Marvin Rodriguez was the certified installer. They went about their business and had me up and running within a few hours. Amazing job!! The cleanup was absolutely fantastic. Never would have known a very, very old oil tank was there. I can't praise the team enough --Santiago, Marvin and Junior. I highly recommend CommTank for any and all oil tank needs. Here is another 5 star review to be added along with the other 5 star reviews for CommTank. A job well done!! ***** I
Comm Tank provided a detailed competitive quote in writing to replace my oil tank. They were able to work with me on scheduling to job. Big Deal. That's business 101. The key is their Team. They showed up on time and cranked out the job like their lives depended on the quality and timeliness of completion. All without a drop of oil on my rugs. Mel and Italo are professional, knowledgeable, and considerate. They were also patient. I am an old man and ask a LOT of questions and really appreciated that. There were less expensive quotes, and God knows I'm a cheap SOB, but the reviews I read made a compelling case for not going for the lowest quote, instead opting for demonstrated quality work and peace of mind. Money well spent.
We just had our 65 year old Oil Tank replaced today by CommTank. They did a fantastic job. The salesperson Santiago came last week to look at our old tank, explained everything to us about what would be done and gave us great advice about which new tank to go with for our needs.We got a few estimates and CommTank was by far the most professional.The crew arrived promptly, worked efficiently, neatly and had the Fire Department come and inspect before they left. Santiago came as well to show and explain everything we needed to know about the new tank and how to register it for the excellent Warrantee the manufacturer ROTH provides.Then new tank is upright takes up less space and has a clean stainless steel exterior. They replaced sealed and painted the new outside pipes and reinsulated the exit holes.We would highly recommend Santiago and CommTank for oil tank replacement!
I had an oil tank removed because I switched to a heat pump system. The oil tank was in a mechanical room that was small so taking the tank out had to be done carefully. I wanted a professional local company that specialized in tank removals. I researched and found CommTank. I read through a lot of reviews and was very impressed. Santiago, the sales rep, came to meet me and he spent the time I needed to understand the process and give me confidence that it would be done right. I was again impressed.Today was the day of the removal and I am so happy. A team of three guys showed up and Santiago. They were amazing! Hardworking, professional, careful with all. And when done, cleaned the area - you would not even know an oil tank was there (and my oil tank was over 20 years old!)I wanted to add my 5 star review to all the other great reviews. I highly recommend CommTank for your oil tank needs. They are the best around!
Price was half the first quote I got. I was able to schedule the removal within a week. The crew was here on time and had the tank out in about an hour. No mess, no smell. Excellent work
I had a pinhole leak in my oil tank discovered by my HVAC company and needed to have it replaced. They recommended CommTank. They were quick to send someone out for an estimate. I also contacted a competitor and while both were within a few hundred dollars, CommTank was less expensive. I ended up choosing them not only for the price but for their reviews and for their many recommendations on my town fb page . I’m glad I did because they did a great job with the install/replacement of my Roth tank and left the place as clean as they found it.At least in my town, after you have an oil tank replaced the fire dept calls to schedule an inspection. When they came out it was very quick and I said something to that effect and the lieutenant said “I see it was installed by CommTank. They do a great job and we never have any problems with them.” If that doesn’t give you piece of mind I’m not sure what will!
CommTank came and removed our tank after we upgraded to a heat pump system. They were responsive and easy to work with when scheduling, showed up exactly when they said they would, and were quick and professional. They left the basement clean and even put some powder down so nothing smelled like oil. Payment was easy via credit card and they were done in about an hour. Great experience and would highly recommend
They removed my old oil tank from my basement for a very reasonable cost and did an excellent job. Great response, super fast to schedule and they got the job done so quickly. They cleaned up very well after the work was done, highly recommend!
Took care of old oil tank. Professional. Clean.
I've used this company twice now. They are quick and awesome
CommTank changed out my old leaking oil tank with a Roth lined tank and I could not be happier with the installation. The office personnel were very courteous and set up an appointment for visit. Santiago came for the initial site visit and Carlos was there for the installation. Both were very friendly and professional, they did a nice installation and left the worksite spotless after the install. I highly recommend them and like the safety of having a lined tank with a leak detector if it is ever needed.Thank You.Tom
We were extremely happy with the service provided by Commonwealth Tank. We had 2 residential tanks replaced and everything was very professional and well done.
Professional workers. Careful and competent. Great guys! Highly recommended
Replacing my oil tank. Loving my experience, this is great professional team, they keep you up to date with any changes and show up on time. Thanks commthank for coming out here in the middle of the snow storm 🙌!
Just had a new Roth oil tank installed. Customer service top notch. Francesco and Melvin came to my house on time. Clean neat installation. Wonderful work done by these to men. I recommend Commtank.
Used CommTank to replace our 30+ yr old tank. Work was done as promised, professionally and at a very good value. Highly recommend !
Sanny and Sergio just left the house, and I couldn’t be more pleased with the work. Two large oil tanks, installed 20 years ago, are gone and it is like they never happened: the place is immaculate and there’s not a drop of oil anywhere - the tanks were carrying over 500 gallons of oil.Throughout the work, they were professional and careful, and very respectful. And these guys are strong and seem to love the work. Especially noted when it can be hard to find smart, dedicated people, Comm Tank nailed it.
We had Comm Tank replace our aging inside tank with a new Roth outside tank. They were personable, professional, prompt and cleaned up completely.They took care of installing a concrete pad for the outside tank and removed the old tank.We are completely satisfied and will highly recommend them.
They were very professional. Showed up on time and did a very nice job. Left the place very clean. I'm very pleased and would definitely recommend them!
Had an emergency situation and they were able to help me out ASAP. Very happy with the service and the job they did. I had issues finding a company in the busiest time of year for an emergency and yet I was contacted and helped immediately. 5 stars for great service.
Good people,good place for employment
Had to have two tanks removed from my basement. Old bulkhead was not accessible and only egress had 27 inches. They arrived on time. Cut the tank to fit the opening. No mess left behind or to clean off walls, stairs or doors. Thank you for outstanding service.
While getting a quote and booking the service was less than easy, the service was great. They were easy to work with, clean, and prompt. They got in and got out with the oil tank the previous owner abandoned in place. I highly recommend their services.
This company just replaced an old oil tank for us. True to the contract you agreed to with no surprises. The company has amazing service from the first call to the technicians who replaced the tank. They are a truly professional organization. The installation was neat and organized. They left my property inside and outside clean from all debris. If you need an oil tank replacement this is the company to call!
They were subcontracted by my mechanical contractor to drain and remove my oil tank. They were courteous and fast and cleaned up after they were done
Manny and his team were fast, thorough and professional. They pulled an oil tank out of our basement quickly and easily in about 3 hours, and left the basement cleaner than when they found it. We will definitely call them again the next time we need help.
CommTank saved the day for us, I can home from work and walked into the dreaded smell of heating oil filling my house. I went downstairs to see where the smell was coming from and discovered that our recently filled oil tank was leaking. With one call to CommTank they had someone out in under 20 hours to access the situation, Gui put our fears to rest and got us on the schedule for a replacement. When the workers showed up to replace the tank they were extremely professional and tidy. They treated our home like it was theirs and protected our rugs and floors from the messy job of pulling out a 50 year old oil tank. The workmanship and attention to detail that went into the installation of the new tank exceeded my expectations. They refilled the new tank with all of the oil from our old tank after double filtering it to make sure none of the sludge and gunk went into the new tank. I can't say enough about how satisfied I am that we chose them for the job!
CommTank replaced our old steel 330 gallon of unknown age with a brand new Roth 275 (with the 30 year warranty and $2M insurance). The quoting process was simple and included everything, and the people who came by to do the work were punctual, friendly, and accommodating, and they left the place neater than when they arrived. They made sure everything was running just fine before they left.Give CommTank a call when you'd like to replace your old steel tank, especially if it's of questionable age and condition like ours was. Why take the chance? We like the warranty and insurance on the Roth, not to mention the extra space!
Friendly people.
CommTank was an absolute lifesaver!We were faced with underground piping issues that needed repair and were told to bulldoze the rooms to remedy the situation.We were shocked thinking that this was our only solution.Fortunately, we contacted and hired CommTank. The crew excavated, repaired and replaced our underground plumbing with great efficiency and precision allowing us to return to our house in a short period of time. We highly recommend CommTank and are so thankful for a job well-done! They truly are miracle workers!!
Great overall, from Leury coming out to estimate, to timely installation by Francisco & Raphael. Tough job, we do not have bulkhead access. Neat, clean and efficient. Pitched fill pipes correctly. Thanks Again!
Amazing - came day after we called and removed an oil tank - Louis was amazing!!
Comm tank guys are great and a real Fast I recommend these guys. O and the oil tanks thay put in are cool

Request more info

When your home or business property needs oil tank installation or tank replacement, CommTank has the knowledge, experience and quality products for successful tank installation.  Our service areas throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire are filled with satisfied customers.  Our team of area installation technicians has all the information you need to gain answers to your questions.

CommTank’s System of Residential Oil Tank Installation

  • We’ll visit your home or business to measure the space where the new oil tank will be installed.
  • We’ll check the distance from the proposed location to both the burner and the fill and vent pipe.
  • For aboveground tanks, we’ll make sure the floor under the proposed oil tank location is safe.
  • We’ll deliver your new tank, steel vent and fill pipe, and copper lines within protective, continuous, non-metallic sleeves.
  • We’ll reduce the amount of service calls you’ll require by properly installing the tank and pitching it forward slightly to prevent the buildup of waste sludge.
  • We’ll optimize tank stability by installing six-inch steel legs with flanges at the foot
  • We’ll add a shutoff valve before the oil filter, so your filter or burner can be isolated while the technician works on it during service calls.
  • To complete the job, we’ll paint the exposed pipes so they are protected from the elements.

We Stand Behind our Services and Products

Advancements in use of technology have resulted in tanks manufactured with corrosion-resistant materials such as polyethylene and double-wall steel. All fittings are now mounted on tank tops to eliminate risk of damage to fittings mounted below the fuel level. The amount of service life of today’s oil tanks can be as long as 50 years, if properly installed and maintained.  We provide people with access to the best tank manufacturers in the industry: Roth and Granby.

Unique One Year Labor Warranty

Home oil tank installation by CommTank people ensures you gain the best service, the best products and the best warranties. We never want you to worry about your oil tank. It’s that simple. CommTank offers a one year labor warranty that’s unique in the industry.  This one year warranty starts on the day of installation.

Example of a Roth Tank installed in a basement.

Example of a 275-gallon Roth Tank installed in a basement

  • Roth tanks have a blow-molded seamless inner tank of high-density polyethylene, which is absolutely leak-proof and corrosion-resistant. The outer tank is made of galvanized steel, lock seamed and sealed with an oil and fire-resistant seal. The outer tank protects the inner tank, and offers secondary containment should the inner tank fail. Roth tanks feature a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty on parts and equipment.
  • Granby tanks are time-tested and offer ultra-high performance, featuring proven steel construction with cutting-edge polyurethane-based coating to protect against corrosion and leaks. Granby tanks offer a manufacturer’s warranty on parts and equipment from the date of installation that varies from 3 to 30 years, depending on the model.

Information About Home Supply Store Tanks

Some information to consider before buying oil tanks at a home supply store:

  • Store-bought tanks do not usually last as long (under 10 years)
  • Not all tanks comply with local area fire and building codes

Heating Oil Tank Sizes

A common heating oil tank size for home use across New England is 275-gallons. More options are available, however.  People request larger or smaller tanks based on the home size they are heating as well as access to the basement or garage where the tank will be located. Basements with small doorways, sharp turns in stairways or low ceilings require low profile or smaller tanks. Storage capacity can be maintained by linking 2 or more tanks in a daisy chain. Here is the range of sizes currently available in a Roth Tank.

  • 110 gallon
  • 165 gallon
  • 275 gallon
  • 400 gallon

Oil Tank Regulations

Local fire departments require heating oil tank installation permits to ensure work is performed in accordance with either their own code, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) or the International Code Council (ICC). Massachusetts cities and towns charge anywhere from $10-$75 in tank installation permit fees. The fees cover the cost of inspection and record maintenance. After a new tank installation is complete, the Fire Department sends an inspector to verify the tank is installed to code, and signs off on the permit. Many New Hampshire cities and towns require permits for tank installations but do not charge permit fees.

Insurance Coverage

Coverage for leaks from oil heat systems must be offered by insurance companies, as mandated by Massachusetts law since 2010. Unfortunately, many homeowners are not aware of the coverage because it is an optional purchase. Coverage includes response action costs and third party claims associated with oil spill remediation. To be eligible for coverage, you must meet these requirements:

  • Your property consists of one, two, three or four units
  • Your property is a dwelling used for living and sleeping only, and is not a building of mixed commercial and residential occupancy, such as a building with a retail establishment on the ground floor and an apartment on the second floor.
  • The fuel tank is above ground.
  • The residential property owner must supply proof that the fuel tank has leak-prevention systems (either an oil safety valve or an oil supply line with protective sleeve).

CommTank installs Granby and Roth heating oil tanks using polyethylene-coated copper tube, which meets the leak prevention requirement. If you plan to add this optional insurance, we can provide a letter to your insurance company verifying compliance.
