Bridestowe Resident Wins Moorland Fuels' Heating Oil Giveaway

Moorland Fuels is pleased to announce Bridestowe resident Julie Lewis, has won 500 litres of heating oil.  Ms Lewis won the heating oil by entering her e-mail address into a draw at the Okehampton Show.  

“I don’t think I have ever won anything in my life,” said Ms Lewis.  “It was quite a moment when Moorland Fuels contacted me.  It really takes the worry away from winter bills.”

Ms Lewis has been a Moorland Fuels’ customer since she moved to the area five years ago.  She originally became a customer because of the great prices offered by Moorland Fuels, but has remained a loyal customer because of the quality of service she has received, plus she likes supporting local businesses, especially family ones. 

“I think we need to support local businesses to drive our economy,” said Ms Lewis.  “I have three children and believed we need businesses like Moorland Fuels to thrive and grow, so the next generation of employees have local employment opportunities.”

Moorland Fuels is continuing its steady growth and added another tanker to its fleet this week, bringing its total number of tankers to five.  The new narrow track tanker has been designed for Moorland Fuels to handle the narrow roads and moorland terrain that makes up the Mid-Devon landscape.  The new tanker will be very noticeable throughout the community as it has a unique design showing Haytor. 

“This is a really exciting time at Moorland Fuels,” said Managing Director, Ben More.  “We are very proud of our new tanker as it enables us to continue to deliver exceptional service to our customers, especially those in the harder to reach areas.  In addition to our new tanker, we also have launched a new Web site which provides customers with the opportunity to order fuel online.”

Customers can visit to get an online quote for fuel.  The price quoted already includes VAT and delivery charges.  If customers then want to continue to order, they simply complete the form online and provide any special delivery instructions.  A Moorland Fuels’ employee will call to take payment information.

“Our new Web site is very user-friendly and provides our customers with relevant information on a variety of topics including storing oil, frequently asked questions, boiler servicing, tank replacement and domestic, commercial and agricultural use,” added More.  “We pride ourselves on our service and commitment to our customers and believe our Web site is very relevant to their needs”

Moorland Fuels is also running a winter fuel giveaway.  Anyone who orders fuel between now and the end of February and provides the reference ST11 will be entered into a monthly draw to win 500 litres of free fuel.
