Additional Information on Oil Tank Removals
Many properties in New Jersey feature underground, decommissioned oil tanks. For the most part, these tanks do not cause any problems for residents. However, when homeowners want to sell their properties, these underground tanks become an issue.
The Background of Oil Tanks in New Jersey
Up until the 1990s, New Jersey residents preferred using oil for heating purposes. To store the oil, they utilized underground storage tanks made from bare steel. Over time, steel tanks corrode and develop cracks, allowing oil to leak into the surrounding soil. This soil contamination results in both environmental and public health problems. At the time, people did not think about the potential consequences of installing underground oil tanks in their backyards. However, homeowners of such properties now have to bear the burden that comes with having an underground oil tank.
Why Would You Want to Remove an Underground Oil Tank?
The liability of underground oil tanks is something that both real estate agents and potential homebuyers recognize. As such, they will typically go to great lengths to find out whether a property has one — and insist on its removal — before closing the deal. If you are planning to sell your property and it has an underground tank, it is in your best interest to have the tank removed professionally to avoid compromising your property's value. Even if you are not planning to sell, the resulting soil contamination from leaving the oil tank in place could present a hazard to your health. Fortunately, according to the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance, your insurance can partially or fully cover the costs of oil tank removal.
Performing an Underground Oil Tank Removal
Simple Tank Services has a flat rate for underground oil tank removal in New Jersey. Once you make a 50% deposit, we will secure all the permits required to perform an underground tank removal and have any underground pipes or power lines marked to avoid interfering with any of your utility services during digging.
The next step is the actual removal of the tank. This process begins with excavating the soil and concrete surrounding the tank while being careful to preserve any landscaping. Our experts then make a large opening on top of the tank to clean it. That involves removing the tank's contents, sending them to a recycling facility, and then washing the tank.
After cleaning, we extract the tank from the ground and wait for a visual inspection from a local official. We fill the hole if they determine that there is no significant contamination to the surrounding soil from a breach in the tank. We will then submit a report to your municipality with details of the tank's removal. At this point, the job is complete.

Steve and Casey just finished the removal of a huge 1000 gallon tank. What a great team they are. Showed up on time, worked diligently, completed the job... and luckily for me, no complications! Every body I dealt with from the first phone call has been friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. I recommend them without a doubt. And their pricing is very competitive.

Amazing job! The oil tank was below 7 inches of solid concrete . Steve was able to break the cement and pull the tank out of a tight space. The tank came out in good shape. Passed inspection in a jiffy . Also, Casey was very professional and courteous. Pete, who I spoke to over the phone was very helpful and explained to me every process of tank removal. I was convinced that this is the right company after I spoke with him. Overall, Simple Tank Services provided excellent service and professional staff. Pure and simple. Thanks guys!

Steve and his crew where awesome! They showed up on time, were courteous and efficient. They kept me apprised as to what was going on, removed the tank and cleaned up quickly. I’ve already told my realtor to recommend them to her clients- they will be extremely pleased. I was also impressed that the max price quoted me was under the estimate. Peter was gracious and explained every step of the process. This is great company to do business with - you won’t be disappointed!

My fiancé and I used Simple Tank Services to take some soil samples at a house we're interesting in purchasing that has an abandoned underground oil tank. Matt from Simple Tank did a great a really thorough job and was very helpful in answering all of our questions throughout the process. He made sure we understood how everything worked and complete the project in a timely manner. I'd definitely recommend using their services!

Teddy, Tiffany & co at Simple Tank Services are quick, responsive and on the ball. We had an oil tank discovered late in sales process and they were able to schedule, test and produce results in a timeframe that we needed. Great services, great people, highly recommend.

We just had our tank removed from our home and process was very simple and straightforward. People from Simple Tank Services were all courteous and very professional and can't say enough good things about them. I give them two thumbs up and recommend them to anyone !!

The service was great when the gentleman arrived they were very polite and respectful they did their job explained what they were going to do and when completed they explained how it went. The secretary Tiffany was a pleasure to work with even though I called her more times than I needed to but that was not because of her it was because I am that way wanting to make sure everything is going ok my only issue was one of the gentleman in the office sounded to be an older gentleman (no disrespect) I didn't think he was very professional when he talked to me on the phone that was my first time ever speaking with him a little arrogant but over all I would definitely recommend Simple Tank to anyone in need of that type of service.

We wanted to take a moment and post a rave review for the entire team at Simple Tank Solutions. As builders, it is absolutely imperative that we operate with efficiency when preparing for a closing on a new home. Scheduling and sticking to deadlines is critical for both us and our clients. The guys at simple tank solutions offer exemplary service and quality workmanship when out in the field. Dealing with underground storage tanks can be pivotal to a real estate transaction and we know we’re on good hands. They have done numerous tank sweeps for us and most recently, pulled out a massive 1000 gallon underground oil tank without breaking a sweat. These guys are among the best and highly recommend. Thanks again!

It was a great experience working with Simple Tank Services. They attended in the early morning and did a very professional job removing a 1000 Gallon oil tank from my property and get the township inspection approval. They return back to fill up the sinking ground in the yard with a top soil to level the space beyond the big tank. I really appreciate their service. Thank you Matt.

When I thought I had a $10,000+ soil remediation job ahead of me, I reached out to Simple Tank Services. They were able to determine soil remediation was not necessary and saved me thousands of dollars. They did all of the paperwork required for me to receive a "no further action" letter from the state. Not only that, they arranged for a courier to hand deliver the paperwork to the proper state office in Trenton. Look no further and use Simple Tank Solutions. They are fair, honest and extremely professional!

I would highly recommend Simple Tank to everyone. They are the most fairly priced, honest and helpful. Be sure to ask for their interactive guide to help you fully understand the process and all the possible scenarios that might occur once your tank has been removed. It was a pure pleasure to work with Simple Tank. Teddy was great, the guys who came out in sub-freezing temperatures to remove the tank for us were fabulous. All around a great company!
