Customers are eligible for free delivery with a cart totaling over $100.
Tips can be given to our drivers in person or sent through Venmo @southbaypropane*

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.
Why do only South Bay customers get free delivery?
We currently only offer free delivery to South Bay customers because we are still in the process of expanding.
However, neighboring cities are all eligible for free delivery on all orders totaling more than $100.
We are working hard to soon offer free delivery to all neighboring cities.
I have a Blue Rhino tank I'd like to exchange, do you guys accept other brands?
Yes, we gladly exchange any brand of tanks in any condition.
My tank says 15lb, but on the site I only see 20lb. Are those the same thing?
Yes, 15lb tanks and 20lb tanks are the same thing. 15lbs refers to the weight of the propane gas and 20lbs refers to the weight of the actual propane cylinder.
If you have any further questions, please email us or give us a call and we will be happy to assist you.
