The topic of fuel seems to be a never-ending bone of content for most people in Derbyshire, but why? You can blame the bulk of it with the automotive industry and the various utility service providers, not to mention whoever’s responsible for the excessive fuel/energy taxes. It’s not usually because people cannot get hold of fuel, it tends to be more about the cost;
Is it really all about cost?
The answer to that one is, probably not. Most people these days actually prefer a higher level of customer service and value for money so, what if you could find a fuel supplier that does its very best to provide all of the above, including physically delivering your fuel to you?
Types of fuel
So far, the only company that offers such a stellar level of service seem to be a coal merchant who owns a fuel shop in Swadlincote, they specialize in various solid fuels so you’ll find more than just coal. You have the choice of coal, wooden logs, kindling, Taybrite, Phurnacite, Arthracite and trademarked “Home fire Ovals”.
You’ll also receive guaranteed prompt delivery, if you need fuel for your open fire, wood burner, room heater, gravity feed system or a central heating system designed to use solid fuels.
Despite the challenges that most businesses are facing it would appear that the solid fuel suppliers are still going strong and have been for around 40 years or so. They must be doing something a little different than your typical fuel provider that’s for sure.
