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 thRem to a recycling facility, and then washing the tank.
