Default Cost of oil tank replacement

I need to replace my old oil tank located in my crawlspace and was wondering what kind of $$$$ I'm looking at for the job. The new tank would be located outside the house. Anyone have a tank replaced recently in Suffolk?

I can't say it was recently. 10 years ago I had a tank removed from my basement and another one installed in its place and it ran about $1000

It would depend on how much work around the tank needs to be done. I had an enclosure that was easily removable. I also had a relatively full tank so they needed to drain it, remove it, install a new one and pump the oil back. I doubt you will get near $1000 but $2000 seems high.

Yeah, the guy sorta had a "I don't really feel like doing this job so I'm going to jack up the price" tone about him.

I had my oil company do it so it fell under the service agreement in case they f'd it up.

At the time I had Blue Flame. It was warrantied under them and I specifically asked because I was new to the home if something happens with the connection or whatever since it was in my basement and they installed it with their employees would they at least cover the repairs and they said yes. Any oil spillage would be under my home owners policy.

Blue FLame was bought out by General a few years ago and since then I have moved and now use Petro.

I used MAY tank about 4 years ago. New tank, abandon the old buried tank, hooked everything up, was $1950

My neighbor just used them (4 years later) I think it was $2500
Very happy with them.

Question New to site...

I am in the process of getting a new oil tank. I just got a quote from my oil company of $4500.00!!!! It's on the side of my cape, the lines run around the front and down the other side and into the house. It runs under my front stoop and part of my driveway. I am replacing all the concerete also so they will trench a 2" pvc pipe for the dula lines to run. It's about 70' from the tanl to the burner.

Can anyone recommend an independent company that I might be able to get a more reasonable estimate? I did try to find MAY as Spanky25 mentioned but no go. Thanks very much.
