At Quick Environmental, we take the stress of oil tank removal out of your hands.

OIL TANK REMOVAL – NJ & PA

Underground oil storage tanks have been used for heating homes and businesses for decades. However, with more homes switching from oil to natural gas for their heating, more underground oil tanks are being removed. Many municipalities now require the removal of an underground tank as part of any real estate transaction. If not removed, underground oil tanks can create a variety of problems. If the oil tank is thirty years or older, it is most likely constructed from steel which can corrode over time and cause a leak. 

What causes an oil tank to leak? Nearly all fuel oil storage tanks rust from the inside out. Moist air condenses inside the oil tank, contributing to a sludge that accumulates at the bottom. This can lead to internal rust or corrosion, which can cause leaking. Over time, the moist air inside the tank combined with moisture and water in soils surrounding the oil tank will start to rust and corrode the tank. If the bottom of the tank rusts through and the tank’s contents begin to leak into the surrounding soil and groundwater. Outdoor fuel oil storage tanks are even more prone to condensation due to daily temperature changes. Even a very small hole can cause significant soil contamination and contaminate any nearby groundwater source.

Removing your underground oil tank is good for the environment, it can increase property values and is one less thing you need to worry about when you sell your home.

Needed a 250 gallon, above ground tank removed on a bit of short notice. Quick provided the best price, out of the 5-10 other companies I reached out to, provided all requested information throughout the process to keep us on the same page, and their technicians were, well, Quick and efficient. Even with a few hiccups, not from them, they still provided a top notch service for the best price I was able to find. It was an absolute pleasure working with them.

Joe with Quick Environmental was fantastic and super helpful. We went through the purchase of a foreclosure and discovered a buried oil tank. Potentially a deal breaker, Joe was able to get to the house, test the soil and have the results with enough time to allow the home buying process to continue smoothly. The cost was very reasonable and almost a full week faster then other companies in the area. Luckily our soil test came back clear and Joe was able to give us a very reasonable quote for the removal of that same tank. We will be using them in the near future for that job.

We had to have a fuel oil tank removed from our basement and we hired Quick Environmental to take care of it. They were here early and were very good to take care to not ruin my carpet or floor. The tank had to be cut into pieces and brought up through the house as there is no entrance to the basement from outside. They also cleaned up when they were finished.

Excellent job! The team was very efficient and did a great job of removing our underground tank from a difficult location close to the house. The only minor hiccup was limited advance notice, but they were able to reschedule the next day to accommodate me. AND the price was good. Highly recommend them!

Recently contracted Quick for an oil tank soil remediation on a residential property. Owner Joe Green came highly recommended by a friend. If you're reading this it's probably because you've found yourself in need of such services. Quick Environmental quickly earned my confidence ... owner Joe Green was very engaged and a pleasure to deal with. Equally responsive were his office and crew - a total pleasure. I encourage you to call around, I did - then call Quick ... you'll notice a difference.

Quick Environmental did a great job on my oil tank removal. It was involved due to a leakage of many years back. They addressed each step continually and guided me thru the process and skillfully dealt with the State/ Environmental issues. They were very sensitive to a precarious situation.

From the initial call all the way to the job completion, the entire quick environmental team has been very professional and helpful. Alette and Barbara worked with us on all facets to get the job done before the closing of our home’s settlement date. The workers on site were very professional and worked really hard to find an oil tank that we assumed was still under the ground, but turned out not to be present anymore. I would definitely recommend quick environmental esp since they have better pricing than PA and were very efficient and accommodating. Thanks

Quick Environmental removed an old oil tank at my residence that I had decommissioned many years ago. They were very efficient - kept all time lines. I stayed at the property to understand the tank removal process. Team was friendly and kept me informed, explaining the need for some remediation and best path to reduce cost. All in all, they did what they said and knew what they were doing.

We were delighted with the way Quick Environmental handled the removal of our underground oil tank. They showed up on time. They kept us informed about what was going on with the dig every step of the way. When they discovered that the tank sat under up to a foot of concrete and rebar, they got a jackhammer. The removal ended up taking two days because of the unusual circumstances. But they remained calm and professional, and they got the job done. Afterward, they left the area spotless. I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs to have their tank removed.

We are selling our home and find out there is an oil tank on property that needs to be removed. Quick Environmental was recommended and so glad we chose them. Caitlin got all the paperwork and permits together quickly and the workers that came to remove the tank (Josh and Sal) were so professional and friendly. Can’t express how happy we were with the all around service we received especially under the time restraints we had. Thanks again for making this happen!!
