What is the difference between a tank exchange and a new pre-filled tank?

We offer 2 tank options: tank exchange and new pre-filled tank. Tank exchange is for customers who already own a tank and want to swap theirs out for a full tank. New pre-filled tank is for customers who either don't already have a tank or are simply purchasing an extra spare tank. *Both options come pre-filled with propane gas.

Where do I leave my tanks?

You can leave your tanks anywhere in a safe, accessible location such as: on your front porch, near the back gate, etc. At checkout you will see a section titled "instructions for delivery". There, you can add any special instructions such as: gate codes, requests, and any additional information. If you are expecting a same -day delivery we recommend leaving your tanks outside immediately after placing your order; this will ensure we don't miss you.
