Propane Companies may be unfairly charging new homeowners with propane tank removal services
One propane company has upset so many people, that there are several complaint boards and websites dedicated to negative experiences and testimonials of former customers and new homeowners who wanted to share their story.
Other complaints and negatives reviews can be found on the Better Business Beauro, Yelp.com, and other review websites.
Some of the complaints are from people who bought a house and wanted to use a different propane company’s service.
One homeowner from North Carolina was charged a rental fee for a tank that had been out of service for 6 years. The propane company told him it would cost $300 to remove the outdated tank.
Other complaints against the propane company include:
Charging more than the going rate for propane
Price gouging during winter months
Billing for more gallons than were delivered
Refilling tanks without the authorization of the customer.
Failing to repair gas leaks in a reasonable amount of time
Not delivering propane for days while the tank sits empty
Charging fee’s that are in total disregard of certain state laws
Joining a Propane Tank Removal Class Action Lawsuit
If you have had a negative experience with a propane company regarding the removal of unwanted equipment, and then were charged for it, then you may be eligible to receive financial compensation.
The propane company should be billing the previous owner of the house who rented the tank for any unsettled balances, not the new owner or occupant of the house.
