Boyton Oil Syndicate

By collating a large group order we hope to use our buying power to obtain a better price for everyone. This scheme is free for people in the IP12 3xx area (i.e. the Bawdsey Peninsula from the Deben river to Orford and Tangham forest). It is run on a voluntary, best endeavours basis by the Boyton Community Group with the objectives of :

  • obtaining a better price for everyone through placing a bulk order and
  • reducing the number of tankers driving on the local roads

We are moving to co-ordinate a bulk order three times a year, collating requests received by the following date for delivery within a week or so of placing the bulk order on or around these dates:

  • 31 August 
  • 30 November 
  • 28 February 

Further details will be confirmed and advertised in Village Voices magazine. We shall also email a reminder to anyone who has previously purchased or registered with our scheme a week or two beforehand.

PLACING AN ORDER

We are currently trialling a new ordering process in collaboration with Framtrade (part of the FramFarmers group) who have consistently given us the best price over the past year and more. You will get the same service and discount, avoiding any delays by dealing direct with them.

To place an order – email mail@framtrade.co.uk or call  01728 723723 with your details:

  • full address including postcode, a phone contact number & email
  • quantity of oil required, along with any special instructions
  • remember to say you are part of ‘Boyton Community Group Syndicate

If you need oil outside these times we are unable to assist with a bulk order, so you should proceed and order direct or coordinate your own order with your neighbours if they are in need, and you could each save a little more by working together. You can see the price trends and previous price rises through the Boilerjuice or FuelTool websites, though we do not necessarily recommend either of these services.

HOW WE OBTAIN THE BEST PRICE

Framtrade are monitoring the markets on a daily basis and would be able to pick the best day to go to tender, with prices from 5 different companies. They also monitor the price on Boilerjuice.

Another benefit of being part of the syndicate is the flexibility on payment, with 28 days to pay after receiving the invoice from Framtrade after delivery of the oil*.

NB.

  • All oil companies require a minimum order of 500 litres and
  • a maximum order of 2,300 litres for domestic supply (any higher and you will have to pay the full 20% vat).
  • If you are not sure of your tank size or just want to be topped up then you will only be charged for the quantity the tank will take not the amount ordered, but you can’t have more than you asked for.
  • If the order is placed via FramTrade, you don’t need to pay up front as they will invoice you a few days after delivery.

RENEWABLE ENERGY
Ideally we would prefer not to be dependent upon oil and so are keen to help people understand the current options for renewable energy sources, such as solar hot water, air/ground source heat pumps, solar photovoltaics etc. If you would like to find out more about these and other options then please do contact us and we’d be happy to offer some advice and pointers.
