It is no secret that the cost of fuel prices continues to soar year on year, which is why many businesses buy in bulk.
According to the AA, petrol prices rose by 15p a litre between 2016 and the beginning of 2017 and is showing no sign of slowing down. That works out at an average of £8.25 more per tank of petrol. Over the course of every re-fill, that works out to be an awful lot of money.
This is one of the main reasons why companies have invested in bunded fuel tanks, allowing them to buy petrol in bulk so they don’t get caught out by the rise in fuel prices.
Judging the rise in fuel prices has never been an easy task, particularly since the recession in the late 2000’s that saw thousands of jobs cut throughout the United Kingdom. Currently, fuel prices are at a three-year high with no sign of slowing down, so it is little wonder why businesses with vehicles and machinery are making use of bunded fuel tanks.
Buying fuel in bulk means that your business will save money in the long-run as fuel prices continue to soar and break British records. After calculating the costs, the question is, can your business afford not to invest in a storage tank?
Bunded Steel Tanks
At Tuffa, there is a wide selection of storage tanks available for businesses that provide the ideal solution for buying fuel in bulk. Our tanks are available in a wide range of sizes and specialised petrol tanks that can either be fixed into place or are portable; dependent on your requirements.
Not only will you and your business be saving money in the long-run on fuel, but the added convenience of being able to fuel up without queuing at the local garage provides a major time-saving aspect. This is especially helpful if your business is based in an agricultural location – where machinery such as tractors require refuelling.
If you do not feel that any of the options available on our website do not perfectly match what you are looking for, Tuffa Tanks offer a bespoke manufacturing service, meaning that we will design and build a new bunded fuel tank based on your requirements.
